Breaking the cardinal rule – trying something new in race week…

So in truth I am still trying to get my eating on point…it is proving to be more of a mission that I had originally planned. I suppose it helps that I have been eating like a training Ironman since I completed my first one A YEAR AGO! Seriously, this coming Monday has some pretty big expectations placed upon it.


Monday December 5th.
·         11 Months until IMFL (Ironman Florida – now you know).
·         Official start of the Bike Base Build (BBB….just made that one up…took ages)
·         Starting to reform my good/better eating habits…out with the bad and in with the good (silent sobbing)
·         Motivation and focus return to point…

Why December 5th…well this weekend (December 4th) I am in the inaugural Ironman Western Australia 70.3 in Busselton.

Starting to start...

So the early alarms are still proving to be a bit of a bug bear with me at the moment…the good news is that the weather is improving and we are getting lighter and warmer in the mornings so my list of excuses are becoming very short in supply.

Kind of sums up my eating too a little...
 In theory I should be able to build a decent enough habit over the summer/tri season that winter should be a doddle with regards to getting up (sorry…even I was laughing as I was typing that dribble!).

I'm all about that bass, 'Bout that bass...

Thanks Megan Trainor for the catchy title. Not exactly the most butch song for my first embedded video link...



One thing I am quickly remembering with the (attempted) return to regular training is the early alarm settings. It is a real struggle to drag my carcass out of bed most some mornings. On a side note, I probably should invest in a more quiet coffee maker as I am sure that the novelty of the machines warm-up routine at 4:30 will wear pretty thin pretty fast with my wife (especially as it means the boys wake up and crash any chance of extra sleep for her!). Who knew that the grinding process of a few measly beans could rival a rock concert…
