Monday 17th - Sunday 30th January Training...

Wednesday 19 January 2011:

I was sad to leave Wanaka but on Monday I did the 9.30hour drive from Wanaka to Nelson. The following day I drove to Picton and then waited 10hours before I could sail home on the ferry. I used this time to rest up from the Half-Ironman distance. Wednesday was the start of the Petone Splash and Dash so I raced.

S500m - 11.57mins/R3km - 13.22mins (25.19mins). It was a bit hard on the old body but I was placed 2nd overall female behind Katie Fenton. http://www.splashanddash.co.nz/Petone/Results_files/splash%20and%20dash%20petone%20r1%20-%202011.pdf

Thursday 27 January 2011:
