It's all about the km’s at this stage of training - no weight training and no strength work. I also start focusing on my race plan and make sure I've ticked all my boxes in preparation for the race.
Probably only a hour a day 5 days a week, kept really light.
Up to 6 hours a day 6 days a week. Time to feel the pain.
My biggest weakness was my bike riding. I’ve spent the last four years trying to turn this into the strongest part of my racing. I’ve done this buy concentrating on my overall leg strength. I worked with my coach, put together an awesome weights program and did a lot of big gear hills riding.
My height is my other biggest weakness. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can really do about that - it gives me an advantage on the bike and a disadvantage on the run. I just deal with it.
Basketball. Past passion.
My meal plan is generally pretty normal - 5 meals per day, everyday, plus my supplements of course! I just eat healthy with a couple of rewards in there (chocolate) every now and again. I keep my food intake pretty balanced; I eat lots of pasta, rice, chicken, veg and fruit. Three days out from a race I'll double my carb intake and drop my training so I start to store some energy in the form or glycogen for the race (carb-loading).
BSN AminoX. All the different flavours keep you wanting more!
I have a 5 year goal to qualify for and compete in the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona Hawai
Their drive to be the best and to see how far and fast the human body can go is amazing. There isn’t a race on the planet that these two guys haven’t won.
Oh pizza... GET IN MY BELLY!
I don’t listen to music when I train. I like to train the mind as well as the body.
The desire to be the best I can be and to see how far I can go in the sport I love.
