Update: Ironman Cairns & Change of Plans


Coming into the race I knew I hadn’t had the best build up, mainly due to a simple dental treatment turning into a bigger issue than expected. After 70.3 Busselton I was booked to have a tooth removed on the Monday with the idea I would only need to take three days off training, instead there was complications and it turned into more 4 visits to the Dentist and 10 days without being able to train. I was able to recover and get some good solid training in once it was resolved but it wasn’t the perfect preparation!

The last few days before the race when as normal, with some light training & suss out the new swim & run course. When I did Ironman Cairns in 2012, the swim and T1 was in central Cairns which was changed this year to be at Palm Cove which 25km out of Cairns. It would impact the end of the bike as it would would finish the bike in town and meant the the whole run would be in down town Cairns with a “few” 180 degree turns!
