Training Camp - January 2013
What a long weekend for all those (Flynnie, Scotty, Fi, Andy, Foster & Stray) involved in the January 2013 Ironman Training Camp, held in Mangakino. Thanks to Flynnie for organising the accomodation and to my trusty EA (Stray) for firstly ensuring Fi was looked after on the rides and runs and secondly helping cook, clean and in general look after the others. Also thanks to all those doing the training as you all made the camp a great success as well as Ali and Eve for helping out as well. That egg after Mondays ride on the bike course was great Eve.
The Camp involved 3 big days of training with the first 2 days based in Mangakino on some rather hilly courses for the rides and spectatular river tracks for the run and the third day in Taupo on the NZ IM course. The weather couldn't have been better for the 3 days and hopefully this is a good omen for the race in March. I am definitely looking forward to the Ironman in 5 weeks as you are all in great shape and will have awesome races.
