Well it's been a crazy 6 months of COVID lockdowns here and around the world. Since I last raced in March at Ironman New Zealand, there has only been one other Ironman, which was a few weeks ago in Cairns, Australia. Here in NZ we have returned to level one, which means the country is back to normal again with just our borders shut. Hopefully in a few months time we will have open borders with Australia and the Pacific, and fingers crossed for a vaccine soon.
I've been getting ready for our summer season which will start in another month and I can't wait to race again! The last few weeks I've been down in the South Island gravel bike riding and running some epic mountains and trails. It was great to not only refresh the mind and body with some different training, but also to explore some different parts of New Zealand.
We chatted to Caitlin about how they make their relationship work around their heavy training loads and transient race schedules.
