Pre Ironman Update

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. A lot on the go these days from training my amazing clients and athletes, training myself and getting ready to bring a new baby into the world....ok the last one isn't that much work right now but just wait!!

Where to begin. I am 3 weeks out from Ironman Florida and feel great. Probably the best shape of my life. I have been working on nutrition and tempo so I can have a successful race in Florida. To be honest I didn't fully understand how specific you have to be with pacing and nutrition in Ironman until I went through it. The past 2 months I have been getting around 500 calories per hour on the bike and can't even start to explain how good I feel running off the bike.

My final weekend of big training passed with Glenn and I riding to Welland and meeting up with Nicole. I kept the watts around 220 and took a ton of nutrition. Off the bike I ran 45min and that night I did another 15with the dog to make it 60min haha. On the Sunday I woke up and ran the Toronto Half Marathon. No watch, just went on feel and ran a 1:20:00 not too shabby to close out the weekend. I also wore my Saucony Kinvara, which have held the test of time and made me walk away not sore!! It is rest time now so just want to get there and race!!

On the team side we ran into a speed bump with UTM right now so we decided to look at the Triathlon Group later on in the year. Sorry to all who were excited. Team Hiperformance however is filling up and can't wait to show off our new Singlets, which were designed by Nicole.

Other then that thanks to all my sponsors, Saucony, Cera Sport, Mach Bikes, Xterra Wetsuits, ISM Saddles, Sable Water Optics, Gears Bike Shop for a great season and ready to show you what I can do in Florida!
