Both the long and the short racing formats were covered last weekend with athletes taking on Race 3 of the Active Tri series as well as the 2 Bays Trail run.

Active Tri Race 3

While each leg of the Enduro format (swim/bike/run/swim/bike/run) may be shorter it proves itself to be a challenging way to race. A 250m swim, 10k ride and 2.5k run repeated kept athletes honest and showed the benefit of a quick transition.

Mon Liston made her return back to racing after enjoying her post Busso IM break and it was a great chance to blow out the cobwebs as she gets back into her training.

Les Toth continued his summer of racing and came away with some valuable lessons that only racing hard and regularly will teach. Great work Les.

Charles Martin had his debut race in the MEC colors and whipped around the course managing a top 10 in is age group.

Two Bays Trail Run

2 MEC athletes headed down to the Mornington Peninsula to be part of the 2 Bays 28k trail run.

Angelo Bonacci has been going from strength to strength in training and topping off another great week getting through the challenging 28k course 'comfortably and upright' as per coaches instructions.

Leanne Keating laced up for the 28k course as she builds towards Ultraman in May this year. A strong bike ride the day before to take the shine off the legs showed that she is well on track getting through the run and finishing full of running.

Well done to everyone on another great weekend of racing. A great start to the year and looking forward to seeing the results for goal races later in the year.

Not just a triathlete coach, but also a life coach

Not only has my coach helped me to achieve what I have set out to achieve, he has taught me so much more, I actually call him my triathlete coach and life coach. He believes in me before I have believed in myself, without him I would not have achieved my 70.3 World qualifier and Ironman pb's.
