Jenna begins her training “down under”


After China, I boarded the plane and headed down to Australia to meet my new coach. He lives on the Gold Coast, which is just south of Brisbane. So for the past week, I have been trying to adjust to life “down-under” which will likely be where I call “home” for the next 4 years or longer. Only a few days after arriving here, I found out that I was to race a ½ Ironman here on the Gold Coast.  I have never raced a ½ Ironman and had done no training for this one. The race was an experience to say the least. After winning the swim, I had a solid bike and was running quite well until I “bonked” at around 15k. I managed to gather myself and recover from it, but it cost me 3 places as I fell from 3rd down to 6th.

Now, the real training and routine will begin as I start my preparation for the Noosa Triathlon in about one month time. It will be my last race for 2008 and then the rebuilding and preparation for 2009 will begin!
