Mooloolaba Training - Part 2

Saturday morning at Mooloolaba proved to be another stunning day. The plan for the morning was to get a solid session done consisting of a longer swim/bike/run to go through the motions of what next weekends race will involve. It was a good chance to try my nutrition plan and dial in the speed/times I'm planning to hit during the race in 1 weeks time. The session marked my last hard workout before easing off the training in preparation for next weekends 70.3 race in Yeppoon.

Got a chance to hit the beach that afternoon. There was powerboat racing going on which is pretty awesome to watch and drew a big crowd

For my afternoon run I met up with Australian Moto GP rider Chris Vermeulen who lives at Mooloolaba. Chris will be racing the Noosa Triathlon later this year and it was great to give him a few tips on racing and training for triathlons as well as hearing about his experiences as a Moto GP rider.
