I’ve always said that as soon as triathlon stopped being fun, I would stop doing it. I think I’ve finally reached that point.
This was one of the best courses, and most enjoyable weekends of racing I’ve ever had! Whilst not stoked with my result (9th in my AG, time of 5:06), it’s what I deserve and has provided a good benchmark which I know I can improve on.
Taking in the scenery of the Blue Mountains and country NSW, this ride is picturesque, and brutal! Literally up hill the whole way. A total distance of 261km, with climbing elevation of 3226m. It takes ~4 hours to drive, and on our second attempt, 10:02:53 hours to ride.
After a few bumps throughout the year I have officially started my triathlon comeback, and it seemed fitting for this to occur at the same place as it all began – in Callala, on the South Coast of NSW.
Randonnee – noun. Of French origin, meaning ‘long journey’.
Bikebug hosts a Randonnee bike ride every year in Camden, which is a great opportunity for city slickers to go on a cycling adventure. Think 120km of rolling hills and country scenery.
Summer is here and the holidays are coming! I’m so excited to be making a return to Jindabyne for bike camp. Having ridden in Jindy a few times before, this is what I’ll be packing and highly recommend as Christmas presents for the discerning triathlete/cyclist/runner…
I have officially gone ‘back on program’ with my coach Chris Hanrahan, of Performance by 3. I love this squad – amazing group of people and Chris prepared me perfectly for Ironman Cairns last year. What I’ve realised over the last little while is that choosing a triathlon coach is very much like choosing a husband and I recommend asking yourself 3 simple questions
As part of my whirlwind USA tour, I wanted to race the Fox Valley Half Marathon for 3 reasons: 1) Exposure – both for my sponsors and of the wider American sporting community. 2) To make sure I ran and didn’t get fat eating all the amazing American food. 3) Adventure – it would make for a good story. Which it certainly did!
Now in its 32nd year, the JP Morgan Challenge is a global Corporate running series, and as winners of the Sydney event, my CBA team was flown to San Francisco to compete in the international final. 5 continents. 7 countries. 13 cities. 265,000 participants. 3.3 miles. 4 women from Commonwealth Bank representing Team Australia, who are now officially the 3rd fastest female corporate running team in the world!!!
No matter where I travel, I always pack a pair of Pearl Izumi trainers, as running is the best way to explore new places and easiest form of exercise to keep up when I’m out of town. Today I tested out the new Pearl Izumi Trail N2’s around San Francisco, California.
