Hi, my name is Imogen Inglis. I am 28 years old and one day, maybe a little naively, I decided to take on Challenge Wanaka Ironman. I have always liked the idea of doing an ironman and ticking it off my bucket list, the actual concept of completing the training to ensure I was “match day fit” wasn’t even a consideration.
My name is Bridget, I decided to enter the Wanaka Challenge Half Ironman a few months ago and have been chipping away at training since. During the day I work as a solicitor which keeps me pretty busy. I am married to Jesse and we have a Spoodle called Oscar who is awesome. Our weeks are pretty busy with work etc, we also spend a fair few of our weekends in Central Otago. I am not good at getting up early in the morning for training and I get cranky if I don’t get enough sleep!
I'm Tom Shand, a dietitian for Trailblazer Nutrition. This blog that I will be writing on Trailblazer's website is going to be about my nutritional and training journey to completing a northern hemisphere spring marathon. I've got my eye on the London marathon 2014, but need to confirm a starting spot in that, which isn't a walk in the park.
This weekend was Spring Challenge weekend. Spring Challenge is an all woman adventure race run by Nathan Favae and wife Jodie. There are 3, 6 or 10 hour options each involving a combination of running/hiking, mountain biking and rafting. This year the event was held in Gibbston Valley near Queenstown. It is the 3rd year I have competed in it.
Last week’s key learning is – Don’t underestimate your support crew!
As I stated last blog, I am starting on a journey to getting my nutrition bang on so that I can achieve my London marathon goals.
