2014-15 Season Summary

Its been a long time coming, but work and life in general haven't allowed me to write much on the blog, but here is a brief summary of whats happened since IM south Africa 2014:
  • Competed and finished IM Frankfurt with a PB of 10h:32ms
  • Competed and finished at IM 70.3 World Champs in Mont Tremblant, Canada with a PB of 5h:07ms
  • Only managed swim and bike at local Jailbreak olympic distance race due to injury.  
  • Competed and finished 2015 IM 70.3 South Africa with 5h:20ms. Disappointed with time, but the conditions were awful and everyone suffered. I placed 8th in my Age Group and would have gone to World Champs in Austria, but I didnt take the slot...or rather, I turned up late for slot allocation!!
  • Competed in 2015 IM South Africa but DNF.  PB on swim by 10 mins (1h:15m), Bike of 5h:52m, and injured on T2.
Not the best season, and definitely nothing to write home about, but I'll take my PB at IM Frankfurt, and my presence at the 70.3 World Champs in Canada as the highlight of the season.  I met some top pros in Canada and it was a great experience overall to compete in a world championship event!

After IM South Africa in March I took 5 weeks off training, completely OFF training.  Work and life in general haent allowed me much time to swim, bike and run, but it was good to take the foot off the gas pedal! I gained weight and reached 80Kgs for the fist time in 4 years, and it felt great!

The plan is to just keep ticking and stay active for a few months, do a few local 70.3 and shorter races, and look back at IM in the second half of 2016.  Below are some photos of the last season!
