I have just arrived back from a weekend in lovely Dunedin where I was involved in "heat testing" - an interesting experience that will hopefully provide information to help me cope with the heat when racing in hot conditions. Today I am off to Wellington for the launch at Parliment House of "Sportconnect", a sponsorship intitiative set up by Hamish and Marissa Carter. (www.sportconnect.co,nz)
I have managed to get a new bike thanks to Ben at Performance Bicycle Tuning - it was a bit of a worry as I leave for Boulder on May 16th. I haven't managed to have a ride on it yet but hopefully it will perform as well as my trusty Mac.
With only 2 weeks to go until I leave I suddenly have lots to do. Training is going really well and I am enjoying feeling stronger thanks to my new gym programme.
