|Breakfast after a nice open water swim at Coogee! Nice way to spend Friday morning.|
|Lisa was very excited to be getting a new bike before me....|
|We took a short cut to Brookton Hwy. Its always nice to go somewhere new!|
|The ride home along Roe Hwy was nice for as change....We had a rare tail wind!|
|We met up with Lisa on our way home. She loved her new ride!|
When we got home I had clocked up just about 100km, more then enough given how flat I was feeling. Unfortunately I had no time to nap, instead Lisa and I had to go to Garden City Shopping Center.... Not my favourite place at the best of times, let alone Saturday lunch time! From there is was onto Coogee (a much happier place) for an easy 8km run before a swim. Spencer from Tri Oz Connect came down for the swim. It was nice to put a face to the name finally!

On Sunday it was time for the ATTA 80km State Championship TT at Wandi. I did this race last year and was looking to see how things would compare. Unfortunately, not so good! My ride was disappointing but I stuck it out and managed to get through! I finished in 2.11.49 (37.21 km/hr) for the 82km (slightly long). On a positive note my lap splits were relatively even which was good:
After the ride I sliped on my running shoes for a quick 6km run. I felt pretty strong on the run and ran at just over 4 min/km. It was then home to bed..... Before going to Coogee Beach for the 3rd day in a row! This time ins and outs were on the cards. Its only ever a short session but it always hurts and gets the heart rate up! We stayed for a BBQ and a relax at the beach after which was a great way to spend Sunday evening after a hard week of training!
On Sunday (10 April) I will be racing the Hillary's triathlon. XU1 Sports will have a display at the race with CEEPO bikes on show. Come and have a chat to us there!
