End of Year Report Card.

Well what I can say the last 6 months has been a blast, lots of up and downs.

One of the main reasons for joining a Tri-Club/Squad was to get the race craft right. I must say the coaches at Tri Alliance are great, I can't say how good they are; Emma, Sarah, Ollie, Darren, Stan, Bernadette and Ryan - Thanks Guys.

To my friends in the squad, you guys rock I enjoy every moment of training with you.

This the best my body has felt in years and I owe thanks to Alana (my PT), Kim and Ben from Recover Sports Med without you guys I think my back would break.

I completed the following events

Run Melbourne (10km)
Sandy Half (10km)
Brooks Duathlon (1st one ever and I was wearing TA colors)
Ride around the Bay
Hanover Connecteast Ride
2 Gatorade Sprint Races (These where really Duathlon's) due to rain
Completed my first Hell Week with Tri Alliance some 550km's completed.

So What's ahead in 2012

Complete the rest of the Gatorade Sprint Races (let's hope we swim)
Run Melbourne (10km)
Sandy Half (10km)
Noosa Mutli Sport Event.

Also on the radar is
Australia Day 1.4KM open water swim in Brighton
Duathlon or two over winter

What I have learnt or got better at?

How to swim better and faster (down to 1m:48s pace per 100m) - Thanks Ryan,
My Open Water Swim is much better I feel claimer and better in the water even in choppy waves
How to get on/off the bike with the shoes left on the bike.
Run at sub 5min per km pace and keep it up over 5km - 10km
Quicker on the bike
Generally feeling strong and more conferdience in all areas.

So as 2011 draws I look back at my blog at all the ups and feel that I don't need to list the downs.

Happy New Year everyone bring on 2012 and I hope all your dreams and wish come true.
