Cam Watt Malaysia 70.3

In a few days I’ll be flying up to race the Malaysian 70.3 in Putrajaya. I think it isn’t too far from Kuala Lumpar and I must admit my lack of knowledge about Malaysia in general. I do know it held the Commonwealth Games in 1998?? when Jay Sweet won the road race for Australia and he serverely cramped on the finish line and there was an awesome photo of him in absolute agony from it mixed with a little happiness from winning, anyway I’m looking foward to learning more about the place when I get there. One thing I am sure of though is that it will be extremely hot and humid and that could play a big part in the race as we are starting at 8am so the run leg will be contested in the middle of the day!

My training has been progressing really well, I think I’ve got 6weeks under the belt now after my month off so I’m starting to feel strong and fast again. I’ve done a handfull of what I call reality sessions, sessions that you can’t fake, sessions that don’t lie and I haven’t gone too bad so I’m confident of a good start to the back end of my season that will really kick off after this weekend, as I’m looking to defend last years Port Macquarie Half Ironman in November, then another race in mid November in Forster which is a weird distance of 2km,60km,16km then onto Ironman WA in Busselton early December.

Wow the past week I;d thought up heaps of stuff to write in this blog, and now I’m doing it I’ve got nothing, ouch trained hard and long this morning, need more food and sleep so will have to make up for this next time sorry……
