Well, we're back on with the next "build" block of training and the weather has very kindly let us know that we're now heading into the Autumnal months - doh! Still, perfect day for wind training, so I look forward to seeing you at the Sweat Shack this evening at 6pm if you can make it. We have a couple of spare spots this evening so please let me know if you wish to attend.
Don't forget, the Tuesday and Thursday Time:4:Me sessions are back to normal at 9.30am (both days!) down at Claremont Pool, so I look forward to seeing some of you then.
Yesterday we had a few of the crew race at the final TRI Events race up at Hillary's Boat Harbour.
- Andrew Menschelyi came 2nd in his 25-29 AG and a very credible 29th overall
- Clint Doak was just over 60s behind Andrew and came 3rd in the 20-24 AG and more importantly went on to win the Series Title in the 20-24 AG - superb!
- Ian Murray was fresh on his new Felt DA steed and finished 4th in the 40-44 AG and top-50 overall (not too shy of the young guns above either!)
- Sally O'Dea took out 7th place in the 25-29 ladies event and no-doubt had a better race than the unfortunate episode down at Karri Valley.
And so that brings us to next weekend...no doubt a few of you have signed up for the Point Walter Olympic Distance Triathlon on Sunday and as such I'll see you down there for that one (the last chance to test your race legs before Busso HIM). However, our 3 intrepid Ironman Crew will be heading over to Port MacQuarie tomorrow for the Australian Ironman Championships. The trio, including Andrew Menschelyi, Clint Doak and Janet Musker, have been training consistently now for 26 weeks (a "double-peak" program) and all are looking good for next weekend. I hope we will all get behind these guys next Sunday on the www.ironmanlive.com website and keep any eye on how they're progressing. These three mates really do personify what it means to be consistent and committed to your training and what you can achieve as a result! We wish them all the best and look forward to hearing of their stories next week! Just remember guys...keep it steady!!
