I am now in Kona – Hawaii for the World Ironman Championships. Its been a great trip so far with fantastic weather and my bike and kit all arriving on time safe and sound. Once again the build up has been very low key which is great for me as this is purely about the experience and learning what its all about for maybe a solid attempt in the future.
Training has been minimal as I have really been enjoying freshening up from over six years of top level international kayak racing by having a rest from serious training this year. When late July came around I couldn’t bring myself to refund part of my entry as it was just far to cool of an experience to forgo so here I am!
Below is a photo from this mornings session. Very clear and warm water made for an enjoyable swim.
The FT 1 made it safe. I am looking forward to getting out on the bike course tomorrow.
