Perseverance to Ironman 70.3 2013

Thumb-70-3Our training leading up to 70.3 was not without hiccups; however, it was without injury. What did go well and I am really grateful for is doing my swim training with Peter Williams. Peter is one of the top swim coaches in the country and rightfully so. With this I have improved my swimming strength, endurance, technique and speed. This proved to be the factor to our victory.

Joburg CityTri: 5 February 2012

Joburg-City-Tri-logoThis was not expected to be a great race, because of my long distance training that I am doing. I did a 123km Ride on Saturday with Nicholas and wanted to do the ride at about a pace that I would hope to do on Ironman. I wanted to do a good swim.


Spec-Savers Ironman 70.3 2012: 22 January 2012

Thumb-70-3I write this with mixed emotions. We could not have asked for better weather conditions on the day. We knew the day before that the sea conditions would be favourable for a good swim and they were.


BSG Energade Tri Vanderbijlpark 2011: 4 December 2011

BSG-logoThe morning started with weather conditions that threatened rain and so we put Nikki's rain gear on. Then the sun came out and Nikki decided that this was too much and so we changed into a lighter wind jammer.


Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge 2011: 20 November 2011

Small-logo-94-7We were not sure what the weather conditions were going to be like. It seemed as if we were going to have a mix of conditions including rain. This was not the case and one has to say conditions were perfect even with the windy conditions that we experienced around Johannesburg centre.


BSG Energade Midmar: 30 Oct 2011

BSG-logoIt was good to get to go to a different venue for a change. So this was our first race at Midmar. The weather was just about perfect for the race with temperatures expected to reach 27°C. Read more...

BSG Energade Potch 2011

BSG-logoOnce again the registration process was slick and the event well organized. This is really a good series to do. Maybe they will consider making the swim 750m next year for all and not just the elites, making it a proper sprint triathlon.
