And just like that the season 2016 is about to get underway in Abu Dhabi in just over a weeks time to start round one of the World Triathlon Series..
Where has the time gone since my last update?
I got a sweet new ride for the season thanks to Specialized Australia, which was the much talked about S-Works Venge ViAS. Seriously next level and the hype was real, this thing is seriously fast!! The honeymoon period is still well and truly alive as she sleeps inside! Favorite quote from someone whilst aboard her is; "you look like Batman on that thing"... I’ve always wanted to be like Batman!
Another stint of three weeks at Falls Creek was endured. It had a new experience as I got dropped by a chick whilst climbing up to Falls one day and contemplated life as I stared at the coke can for answers, which for those interested it had nothing to give. It was a rough day and I just put it down to maybe I was unfit and swept it under the carpet.
Myself and the rest of the Wizards have returned to the Velodrome aboard our Track Bikes twice a week, which is easily the hardest sessions of the week though very fun in a sick kind of way! We do all kinds of different workouts working mostly on being able to produce power through cadence.
I’ve had a few small hit outs at some awesome local races down around Wollongong. A few mixed results, though was happy to win the Huski Sprint Tri last weekend, which was a small indicator things are headed in the right direction.
Otherwise it’s just been eat, sleep, train and repeat, which is a good thing.
And just like that it’s time to pack the bags and test the body to see what shape it is in Abu Dhabi next weekend. Very much looking forward to it and will report in post.
