My favourite training session is:
Really depends on which discipline….a really good endurance swim session, is a 10 x 200m set which takes about an hour:
After a 300-400m warm up + a few of your favourite drills, do 10 x 200m repeats
My best race tip is:
Race how you feel and only use your watch/garmin/data as a guide….. some days, you will feel much better than the data suggests and some days worse. That will, of course, require you to be attuned to how you feel at certain effort levels during training sessions too…can only be a good thing right 😊
The highlight of my triathlon journey is:
You learn to push your physical boundaries the stronger you become mentally and there are also a few races that I look back on with fondness (if that’s the right word). However, absolutely no doubt, the best thing is the friends I have made along the way…when you train/suffer together and then race together, the sense of camaraderie cannot be topped.
I love being a member of Warringah Triathlon Club because:
It’s a community of like minded people (aka idiots) who love to push their limits and laugh about it…at their friends and themselves.
My best advice to anyone new to the sport is:
You don’t need to spend a fortune on the latest equipment…remember the engine matters Sooo much more. Much better to have $10,000 legs and a $200 bike than the other way round!
