The count down to Vegas

We are about 5 and a half weeks (38 days to be exact) away from the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas and I am excited!

A few weeks ago Mark and I ventured up to Geraldton (approximately 450km north of Perth) to run a Half Marathon. I was pleasantly suprised to run a 1.23.22 (3.59 min/km), a big improvement on my effort at the Darlington Half Marthon earlier in the year (I ran 1.48.32 and was going through a rough period in my triathlon career...). More details of our trip can be found here (thanks to Mark Luckin).

Last weekend was another fun run, this time it was the the 10km 'Run for Gold'. I ran 38.34 (3.50 min/km). On all accounts running is heading in the right direction!

Not much else to report on the training front, I am getting through the program and I feel I am in a good place physically and mentally .

This week is slightly easier before a last three week push phase leading into the World Champs!
