Michael completed his first 70.3 at Melbourne last weekend and what a super debut it was. Here is his summation of the day.... 1.9KM Swim / 31:38 Alarm sounds at 4am. The day hath cometh.

Vanessa Murray commenced training with Fluid in mid July 2019, following a period of being self-coached. She came to the program with some very accomplished results but was looking for a new focus as she wanted to race Ironman distance again following a 3year break. She sat down with Head Coach Sean Foster to map out her build to Ironman New Zealand 2020, wiping the slate cle ...

Like many other athletes racing there we prepped 2-3 times and final got to the swim start on May 1st. Leading up to the race I felt extremely calm and relaxed but a little confused, was I being over confident or was I just ready? I had actually felt more nervous before an Olympic distance at a QLD TRI series a few months prior. I kept thinking “I’ve trained for 2-3 years for ...

Training for Cairns full IM in June, this was meant to be my ‘B’ race....until I was at the start line and then it quickly became my ‘A’ race.   Had my best race over this distance with 4th AG place - overall time of 4:42 PB including bike PB averaging 85% FTP for 35km/h and a 1:41 PB run averaging 4:50 min/km.   Finally nailed the run!
