November draws to an end

November was always going to be a tough month for me. With my focus set on qualifying for Vegas next year. I have had to race a lot of local races to qualify as I am unable to travel later in the season. This has meant packing a lot into a short time. Mandurah was the first followed by Noosa and Shepparton. It might have been a bit much with work as Shepparton was a tough day out for me.

Other than racing I have picked up the support of Orca and Oakley in November. The crew is building into the new year. I have two key races to go, Canberra and Auckland then I long training block into Cairns then, hopefully the US. I will spend this time focusing on my run. It is well of where it used to be, which has been frustrating.

November was also a month of fundraising. I have supported the Murdoch Research Institute this month by participating in the Foxtel Lap and the MND foundation by completing 100x100 this weekend. My next fundraiser will be for the McGrath Foundation in the new year.

Well it has been a couple of weeks since Shepparton. I have finally recovered. I had yet another bout of the cold leading in, so it was a tough day in the office for me. On a positive note, I exited the swim with the main bunch of girls which is positive given my focus on swimming recently. A solid ride and a 2/3 ok run. It is back to training for a change in training focus leading into the next race.
