Camp Kia Kaha @ Challenge Roth days 3-7

With organising our camp, podcasting and trying my best to stay focused and prepared for the race this blog has fallen off the radar sorry.

DAY 3 – Monday

BIKE ~110km Hilpoltstein to Regensburg

The first 40km was over the first part of the Challenge Roth course so another good chance to check some of the climbs. Felling OK today but still sleeping like rubbish with very early wake up times

Bike file:


DAY 4 – Tuesday – in Regensburg

RUN – very easy 6km tourist run around town in Regensburg. What a wonderful city.

BIKE – 55-60km over the old challenge Regensburg course. After some riding over bike paths initially we turned onto a awesome climb on quite country roads. A good chance for some forced intensity.

SWIM – another incredible outdoor 50m stainless steel pool. After a disappointing swim yesterday I was focusing on a little speed today. Despite there being no lane ropes I hit some really nice times for my 50’s.

  • 500-600 warm up
  • 6x100 descend 1-3, 4-6
  • 12x50 on 60 (2 hard / 1 easy)
  • 100 warm down


Day 5 – Wednesday - Transfer from Regensburg to Nuremburg

SWIM – ~2km open water swim @ Challenge Regensburg course (1km of 200m easy / 200m IM race pace 1lm of 100m race pace / 100m easy)

RUN – Easy 30-40mins run with Bevan


DAY 6 – Thursday

RUN 11km easy to steady.

We joined in with the night run from Hilpoltstein to Roth. There were a couple of hundred doing this fun run over a lovely course through forests and towns finishing at the expo.

A fair amount of walking, podcasting etc today so felt a bit sluggish for the run.



DAY 7 – Friday

SWIM at race site with a few 25m efforts.

BIKE – I was planning on a ride but had some podcasting commitments so only got in 15mins to check the bike is running smoothly
