With winter (2015) coming on, what are your training plans?
I have been training for the (very hilly) 13.2km Puffing Billy Race, which I completed over the weekend in 1:01:25.

What are your goals for the 2015/16 season? Not sure at this stage. Oh yeah, I’m non-committal!

Do you have a Coach? Nope. I just like doing my own thing, to keep fit.

Favorite tri distance? Short course at Eaglehawk. I figure I don’t need as much training.
