Short...sharp and slow. @challengeshepp sprint done. Not pretty, but done. Happy to come away 1:02:40 6th Overall and 2nd in the u19, definitely was a better result than my training deserved. Bloody loved being out there. Let the climb back continue. Cheers @mizunorunningaus @giantsthyarra @oisports for the support though the good and bad always so much appreciated @auzzieluke let the build begin. #justbuildingamachine#theroadback#challengeshepparton
What the Hell ....why not. Lining up for my fave race tomorrow @challengeshepp . Last minute decision to give the sprint a crack again this year. Yeah I’m not ready but hey that’s not always what racing is about. #justbuildingamachine#theroadback
All it took was one race @noosatriathlon to get the ❤️ of racing back. Now it’s time to start the chasing. The mind is focused, big plans and changes being sorted and big goals being set. Bring on the hard work. #justbuildingamachine#theroadback
They always say you take away more from a bad race than a good race. And I’ve got so much away from today.
Came and did what I set out to do: ✔️Crossed the start and finished line. There was so way I was going to DNF, got to admit though walking the run course is so humbling and motivating at the same time. ✔️ Found my ❤️ of tri again. Sticking out an Olympic Distance for 3+ hours has got to be love.
So now I have an absolute starting point an Olympic distance time of 3:07. Let the training begin. Noosa 2019 I’m coming for you.
Cheers as always for the support both on the course and through messages and txts in the lead up to the race 🤗 So much appreciated. Massive thanks to @auzzieluke and @sportssupports you got me to the start and finish line now we just have to work on the race inbetween. Couldn’t have done it with out you, owe you both big time. And @mizunorunningaus, cheers legend for the support as always. @epixgear thanks for kitting me out.
So much more to say I’ll post more in a couple of days. Bring on the recovery beers with @calebnoble95 #justbuildingamachine#theroadback
What a difference a year makes. 2017 Nossa tri was going to be my ‘make them sit up and take notice race’ that was the goal @shreddedclean and I set at the start of the year. Instead, Ryan passed away and it became the race where the wheels started to fall off Triathlon for me. I had a massive anxiety attack before the race, I know if it hadn’t of been for a mate helping me through it I would of walked away from the race that day. Fast forward a year and I’m getting ready to line up again. This year I have 2 goals. Start and finish the race and find my ❤️ for racing again. I’ve always been a big believer in you get what you train for. My training started about 6 weeks ago and it’s had its ups and downs for sure so just getting through the race is a win for me this year. Once the passion is back, the results will take care of themselves. Cheers @auzzieluke for taking me under his wing and getting me to the start line, much appreciated. @mizunorunningaus cheers for sticking through the tough times with me. Noosa 2018 bring it on. #justbuildingamachine#theroadback#noosatri
Noosa packed and ready. Been a while since I’ve had to get race day packed . After last year and the stress of the ‘missing bike’ I’m sending the whip up tomorrow. 🤞🏼she gets up there safely before I head up on Friday morning. Noosa bring it on. 🏊♂️🚴🏼♂️🏃🏻♂️ #justbuildingmachine#theroadback
Cheers to the boys @giantsthyarra for getting the whip race ready. This time next week she’ll be racked ready for racez day. Stoked that atleast one of us will be in top race condition 😂 #justbuildingamachine#theroadback#noosatri
Got to admit every session I get done at the moment is a victory. Think it maybe time to give morning sessions a crack. Finding some nights it takes mega amount of motivation to get the training done after a day on the tools. #justbuildingamachine#theroadback
Surprised myself with getting almost 14kms into the legs this morning. Longest run in over a year. Didn’t think the legs had that in them.Cheers 🍻 @ben_galea_tri and On Course Triathlon Coaching for the run and banter, much appreciated. #justbuildingamachine#theroadback
