Last Sat afternoon I took the drive up to A lovely place called Hervey Bay . I’d never been there before but I know it’s renound for its whale watching and for taking the barge to the gorgeous Fraser Island .
The water was dead flat and a little cool at 7am in the morning but still no wetsuit . I have to say after arriving into the bay I ran into this place ……
Left me just a little apprehensive about the swim at dawn !
But all was ok and I just swam to get out and on to the bike .
I lead out onto the bike and maybe a little cold It took me a while to get going and into a rhythm . 2nd Lap felt much better .
An out and back run for a change I tried to hang on to a good pace and finish well . Fairly easy win and probably more a great training session I enjoyed it and all done by 9am !
It was longish trip home back on the Gold Coast . But a quick race getaway is a good one J
Now after a kind of late decision by the Doc I’m off to Byron Bay thisarvo to race midday tomorrow . Can’t exactly say I’ll have fresh legs but its all good training .
Plus Byron Bay is beautiful (and got a great pub ) so no way I was going to argue & I’ll try get some pretty snaps to post in my next Blog .
Also a quick good luck to the others racing this weekend ! I know its Jodie’s first Ironman and I’m sure she’ll rock it !
