Some good results this year, 1st ironman and good results in Queenstown marathon, hounslow, CC, c2s
Struggled with injuries (Fibula Stress Fracture before ironman, and calf strain in c2s) which was due to training volume, and not taking breaks from a discipline (rests from running and only cycling etc)
Big improvements in cycling and swimming in leadup to ironman, and big improvements in trail & O technique.
Had a lot of fun, enjoyed every race i did, and enjoyed pretty much every training session.
Main focus - London Marathon April (sub-3, target 2:55), Kepler challenge Nov
Secondary focus - Cradle Mountain Feb, Possibly an ironman/half ironman in 2nd half, 5km sub17
- Run less, but more quality sessions - tempo/intervals/hills/long
- Strength... i say this every year, but i need to get stronger. more circuits and heavy hills.
- Try and stay a bit lighter. have been up around 85 since ironman and should be a bit closer to 80. Think this definately hurts me in the hills
- Less reluctance to crosstrain. climb more, paddle more etc.
