Today’s #tritraining was a doozy. So stoked with all the progress I’ve seen so far, and cannot wait to see how much I can improve as the season progresses. It’s workouts like these that keep me coming back for more. Today tested some limits and, overall, I’m happy with my progress. There’s always those moments of self-doubt and frustration, but there’s also the choice to quell that voice or drown it out with positive vibes. Victories are won when no one is watching, today was a victories day indeed. #roadtogoldcoast#triathlon#teamusa#resultsstarthere#findyourpower#run#bike#trainerday#brick
My first race of the year didn’t go quite as planned... Race prep has been a humbling process since I broke my ankle in February. In fact, this race was the first time I #ran 3 miles consecutively without walking. My coach told me to treat the race like a long training day (ha, jokes). The day before I had noticed my cleats were completely trashed and I had trouble getting clipped in... alas, I did not have time to replace them. I came out of the water with somewhat decent results for myself– around 6-10th in the pack. I grabbed my bike and ran to the mount line where I immediately splatted in front of the crowd! An uphill mount line- combined with broken cleats and broken ankles do NOT mix well! I also dropped my chain off and spent valuable time fixing it *Insert naughty words here* 🤬 I took off and threw down some of the best splits ever. Until I was about .5 miles from the turn around when my chain decided to drop again *more curse words* 🤬🤬🤬 Again, got off to fix my chain. I was so close to closing the leader gap, and still made a few #kills on the way back to the transition. Onto the run– I actually did pace myself here and had to hold back as per the plan, and for leg safety. I still managed to throw down some decent splits too! I ended up snagging the #gold in my #agegroup 🏅 Ended somewhere in the top 10 overall. Cheers to all my friends who Dominated their own races! #medalmonday#triathlon#teamusa#roadtogoldcoast#trekbikes#roka#findyourpower#spinnersarewinners @sister__carrie78

Last week was great but efforts like the one in this picture have left me cooked! I have now trained 11 days in a row but have missed a couple of sessions over the last few days. Time to recover and prepare for three hard seven day blocks before British Age Group Champs on 10th June.
Commitment and consistentcy is what you need to do well in triathlon but the biggest mistake some people make is sticking too rigidly to their program. Knowing and listening to your body is an essential skill. Knowing when to push on and when to pull back a bit is crucial.
As always, thanks to @handsthatheal9883 and @proctor.nicky for your help in making this happen.
Cameron Meyer is Australian cycling's Rain Man.
He's the owner of nine rainbow jerseys - one for each of his track cycling world titles - but now he wants more gold to go with them, starting on the Gold Coast at the Commonwealth Games next week.
The Aussie track team's elder statesman won three gold medals in the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and just missed an Olympic medal in the points race in Beijing in 2008.
Meyer will ride the points and scratch races on the track as well as the road race on the Gold Coast roads, and is an outside chance of the team pursuit and road time trials.

Thrilled to see the updates from @balmoraltri teammates who have made the Aussie team for the sprint world age group champs this September on the Gold Coast! I’m very grateful for my spot and look forward to the opportunity to wear green and gold. A big shout out to @owainmatthews for being the best husband, coach and support crew and @the_fonginator for being my sprint training partner in crime, making the journey so much fun! #roadtogoldcoast#howeliv#familygoals#triathlon#ridegiant
Heading into yesterday's Olympic Distance Race at St Kilda fighting off a cold and feeling flat meant I had a slow start and struggled to find my race legs. Luckily I managed to pull of 2nd place and all but secure my spot for the Australian Team for Gold Coast World Championships later this year. Being my last race on this beauty of a bike Id like to throw a huge thank you to @total_rush_cycling for their support over the past 3 years, this bike was a beast and although Ill miss it Im so excited to pick up my new wheels this week! Thanks to @roscoyy for your exceptional programming and support and to Waz from @aquamanaus for my amazing new wetty...it was a dream suit!! Time to sleep and get back to 100% to continue my season in a few weeks #totalrush#myshiv#adventuresofashivnamedcyril#duxdreamsfoundation#temposystems#aquamanaus#sbr#newbikeweek#roadtogoldcoast#longcoursefocusisback#timetogetfast#buttimetogolong#bringiton
Australia’s top female sprinter Stephanie Morton combines cycling with studying criminology at university but doesn’t buy into the mind games or psychological profiling of her rivals.
The 27-year-old won gold in Glasgow in 2014 when she upstaged team-mate Anna Meares in the sprint and now that Meares has retired, leads the team into a new era on the Gold Coast.
Morton said she focused on tactics, not mind games, in the cat-and-mouse sprint after winning a silver medal in the event at the past two world championships.
“I’ll look at them (rivals) in terms of their strengths and weaknesses but I don’t get involved in all those head games, let your legs do the talking really,” she said.
Morton, pictured at the Adelaide Gaol, is studying a bachelor of criminology and criminal justice with the aim of following German world champion Kristina Vogel into the police force.
