Ironman 70.3

I have finally finished my mini documentary on my training and entry into an Ironman 70.3 race.

2 years in the making, this is the most time consuming, yet rewarding thing I have probably done in life so far. Training was long, hard, and exhausting… but I am glad to have finished the race […]

Ironman

What a day. Here I sit feeling the after effects of a long race, sore muscles and really sorehip and knee joints. The whole race has become a blur of a memory so I want to write down as much as I can before the memory fades away. You can read more on my fitness […]

Duathlon 2013

Another race is in the bag…and I feel pretty bagged!

I beat my time from last year by 4 minutes with a finish of 2:30:59 based on my Garmin timing. Some how my timing chip was not entered into the system, I mean I didn’t even get a DNF on the online rankings page. I […]

Great day for a Race

Wow you couldn’t ask for better weather to run a half marathon today. We just finished 3-4 days of steady rain, and the forecast says that it is going to pour rain again for 3-4 days this week. So the race managed to sit right in the middle. I was a little worried at fist […]

Race Support

I went to cheer on my older brother and help by volunteering on race day today. Once again the weather was less than ideal but it was still a good day none the less. I lent him my Garmin 910XT so that he could track all the great stats of his run and compare it […]

Race day check up

I’m getting a little nervous, my first Triathlon is tomorrow. 500 meter swim, 17.5 km bike, 5 km run.Now I know I can easily do the distances, and I entered this sprint distance triathlon as an easy opening to the season. I wanted a simple race that would help me work out some of the […]

First Halk Marathon Completed…ouch!

Wow this one hurt, my legs ache as I write this, I am not sure how I will cope with work over the next few days as my body tries to recover.

Finish time 1:57:00, thus I beat my 2 hour goal, but missed my 1:45 target time.

For the first 4km I was keeping […]

5.8km run / 37.7km bike / 9.7km run

Well the race is done, and I am going to feel this one tomorrow. This was probably the coldest I have ever felt in my life. Pouring rain on us and a stiff wind from the north made the first half of the race nearly unbearable. At least 5 people did not finish the bike […]

Second 10k race

Finished the second race of the season. Another 10k, although this one was much larger and drew over 10,000 runners for all the different races that day. Nearly 2600 people ran the 10k at the same time. I must say I felt like a cow to the slaughter as I lined up for the start […]

First 10k race

Had my first race of the season today. I must say I did not prepare correctly for this.

The problem started a week ago when I smoked my left leg really hard and did some deep damage to the left quadriceps. It was sore and difficult to walk for 2 days. I knew this spelt […]
