What we got

As preparations for Hayden’s Ironman go into overdrive, we are starting a new morning routine that begins at 5:00am. There are only three and a half weeks until we go to NZ, which means two weeks of hard training before he tapers off to a week of rest before the race. I have vowed to get him up at 5:15am on every morning the next two weeks, just so that he can fit one more run into the day.

It’s been pretty challenging for him, since we moved to Townsville. Though his swimming has become stronger than ever, it has been hard for him to find enough hours in each day that are cool enough to do all the riding and running required. Though I’m not up to being a fully-fledged training buddy, I thought that the least I could do was get up in the dark with him, and take the camera down to the sea for a few snaps of the sunrise. Tomorrow I will go for a proper pre-sunrise walk, and you never know, by the end of the two weeks I may well be jogging. We’ll see.

I look at your photos, then look out of my window at London, and I immediately regret leaving Australia.
