3 months in Thailand

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

5 more days left in Thailand, what a fantastic 3 months Bella and I have had here. Starting with 6 weeks in the Boat Lagoon in Phuket; It was like 2 “big brother” houses, all 15 athletes sharing 2 houses, it was great, we all got to know each other very well!

Then the 2nd half of our stay in Thailand was here at Bor Saen villa, this place is like a tranquil paradise, to be able to finish a days training and slip into our private pool, then sleep in a beautiful 4 poster bed!!

Wow we have had quite time here in Thailand!

There have been a few races, we all had different experiences, most did great some not as well as hoped!

I managed a 6th place at IM Malaysia which was fine, but I am for sure looking for better, then my first Olympic distance race(ITU Points race in the Mekong river) was a disaster I had a big crash in the first 3km and it ruined my race, oh well we had a great after race party;)

From here Bella and I travel to Florida for the inaugural 101 race in Bradenton Florida, I feel good for this race, I will give it my best, you can see coverage on www.insidetri.com .

After this we have 3 weeks to train and get ready for Ironman Brazil, then we travel back to Europe for the European season.

We are so lucky to be able to travel to all these places and do these amazing races and stay in beautiful places like here in Thailand. It just gives me more motivation to train hard, a sort of guilt that feels better if I really train really hard!! That way I feel as though I have deserved these luxuries a least a little!!

Please visit my website www.stephenbayliss.net and then visit my sponsors and buy some of their products, they will like me a lot if you do this;)

Thanks for reading and keeping up with my progress.

Blimey! This picture is massive! I don’t know how to make it smaller! But anyway it is a completely irrelevent picture of Bella and I. I am in a kilt and I know that some people find it amusing so I thought I’d give them a laugh! Bella looks beautiful as usual though;)

I am going to use this blog to keep you up to date on my progress as I train and travel around the world, trying to be the best athlete I can be!

It may be that this Blog is of most interest to my parents, who I must email more, sorry mum and dad!

A bit more on being the best athlete I can be. Since starting triathlon again, after a few years break to pursue cycling ambitions, I have made steady but marked improvements in swim, bike and run performance, I do not intend to stop, and I see no reason why I should stop making improvements. Some people seem to like to put limits on performance, I put no limits on myself, I plan to keep on improving.

I have been training the last few months with my Team TBB team mates in Thailand, we have all put in some really solid work and we are looking forward to some great races coming up.

Team TBB has 1 very big aim, which I am a very small part of, that is to help some very underpriviledge children here in ASIA, even by logging on to our website and having a look around will in a small way help us to achieve this aim.

So thank you for reading
Stephen
