With just over a week to go I decided to make the trip up to Mooloolaba on Australia's Sunshine Coast to get in some final training and preparations before heading to Yeppoon for the 70.3 (Half Ironman Triathlon) next weekend. Mooloolaba is one of my favourite training locations with some amazing swimming, riding and running to be had. I could seriously consider living in this little corner of the world!

This morning I joined the 'Sunshine Coast Tri Academy's' squad for an open water swim session. Its always great to catchup with the coach of the SCTA Toby Coote as he has an amazing amount of knowledge after spending much of his triathlon career as a professional triathlete racing in Australia and around the world. He has also spent time at Yeppoon where I am heading next week for the 70.3 Triathlon and gave me some great tips for the race.
