KONA AGAIN.

IRONMAN CANADA and a Whistler in particular backdrop provided a tough and challenging course for my latest Ironman adventure. One fellow athlete described it as Beauty and the Beast. It was indeed a tough and relentless challenge and although I was pleased with the swim, feeling I pushed myself over the distance it was the bike that was daunting. With a climb up Callaghan and then the finishing climb from Pemberton back into Whistler (20km+ ascent). However I enjoyed this part of the race and pushed through the hard parts to hit the run where I hoped to excel and challenge my competitors. Well I did that but not without sacrifice. The bike efforts showed after a good start on the run, the coke was called for after just 6 km as the heat came down, and this was supplemented by lots of ice and a sheer determination not to give in. Not til the chute was completed at least.

This course presents a horrid twist as the end approaches and takes you from the gates of joy through a tradesmen entrance, before coming out on top of the final finishing chute. So I pushed and as a result finished fourth in my age group – and taking the third qualifying spot for Kona (due to this race being designated to the Japanese National Championships). I then spent 30 minutes in recovery in the medical tent, having experienced several minor bonks within the run, but never relenting.

Ironman indeed is a challenge and no matter what experience, background or culture you come from – everyone has to complete the same challenge under the same conditions on any given race day to be called an Ironman. No mean feat and well done to all those who take up the challenge.

ARTISTS OR SCIENTISTS

TEAM PRESENTATION ON SELF-TALK AND GOALS

Man is a goal-seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.                                                                                                                                       (Aristotle)

Is your soccer team, a team of scientists or artists? Messi contrasts and compliments Iniesta, but the mindset of both are vital to developing a winning team and style of play. Clubb Sport is offering a positive and engaging player presentation on how to review and reflect upon your player mindsets and match the right mindset for the right position within the team structure.

All presentations are being offered for a donation towards the Cancervive 2017. This is a charity that is close to my heart having been through my Cancer journey and wishing to support many of others who are impacted by Cancer directly or indirectly.
