Training wise it's been reasonable.
- I've run 385km in 34 hours
- I've cycled a mere 38km for a club time trial, warm up/cool down included
- I've rowed a trifling 6871m in 30 minutes, when I didn't fancy a run
- I've ten whole hours to yoga.
With the race only just three weeks away now, I've dropped the long run in favour of shorter back to back runs of 20-30km each day on a weekend.
So as it's now just three weeks away, the plan is now to have two more semi-long runs this weekend and then start winding it down for the next two weeks before scaling back to just maintenance in the week before the event.
Photos from down under will come later. All I can say now is that Sydney was horribly wet, and that Christchurch is a beautiful town, but is still suffering in a big way from the effects of the earthquakes they had.
And I will try harder next time not to leave such a big gap
