It’s been a long two weeks here in Singapore building up for the 70.3 – Its hard on the mind getting out there everyday and feeling lethargic and generally bad all round in this heat and humidity, but in saying that, when i tested the body over these weeks it always responded well and therefore knew I was in good shape.

I arrived in Miami Monday before the race, straight from Galveston. Miami isn't the ideal place to train, but this wasn't a bad thing as it forced a very light taper. A massive thanks to Pat Mac for hosting me and to Bevan for sorting it out. It was great having a guide to get things done and one of the big benefits of a home stay. Come Thursday though I was in to the hotel and in race mode. My mate from Germany, Horst Reichel, arrived Friday and gave me a few pointers on what to expect and how to get the most out of racing longer distance, mainly nutrition!

Santa Cruz International 2011

First up in my 'home town' was the sprint distance race on Saturday. Just 6 days after NY 5150 I had struggled all week to recover and I knew that I would have to push my limits again if I wanted to beat Tommy Zaferes (the real local). The swim was hard, the run to transition was hard and the bike was hard. Tommy put a little gap on me in the swim, then a little more on me running to transition, which is about 500m and then more time in to me on the bike. I ran hard for the first 2.5km and realised that I had only caught about 10seconds of 30. I knew I couldnt catch him and with the Olympic distance the next day I decided to shut it down and cruise to the finish.
