Training Program Design
16/5/05 - "The personalised program has provided me with confidence in knowing that my training sessions are balanced and specific in addressing my goals. Duration and intensity are specified which takes out the guess work of determining what is the right session to do. It is great to leave the planning side of things to people that know what they are on about. It is like a 'prescription' to achieve your goal; it's then up to your body and mind to put the 'recipe' into action". Damian Rozenfeld, Australia.
22/4/05 - "When I first heard of online training, it looked expensive without much coach interaction. Training Smart Online removes both of these obstacles, making my triathlon training both affordable and effective with their surprisingly quick responses to my questions. I feel like I'm definitely improving my base with their workouts and looking forward to my first triathlon in June". Sarah Bergbreiter, USA.
6/1/05 - "Training is going great. Each time I think this is going to be too tough, I manage to get it done. Especially the swimming!" John Doran, NSW.

23/5/05 - Boyd signing an autograph before the 2005 Ironman Japan Triathlon. Boyd was 4th out of the swim, but unfortunately had to retire from the race 133km into the bike leg due to technical difficulties.
See below for the pre-race interview posted on ironmanlive.com
One young Australian competing in Ironman Japan is competing in his third Ironman ever, and his first outside Australia. Celebrating ten years in triathlon with his move into the Ironman pro ranks, Boyd Conrick also remains one of Australian top Life Savers, (hes a real life Baywatch kinda guy!) and this year won the Australian Championship in Surf Life Saving for the 2km sand run. Hes also gone sub-nine in Ironman, and finished Ironman Australia in tenth, going 9:01 this year
Hes also developed a triathlon pedigree; even though this pro athlete is also a full time fireman in real life at home in Newcastle, New South Wales on Australias east coast. Hes won over 50 short course races and has twice been NSW Champion. Stepping up to the long course events he was third in the Cannibal Gold Coast Half Ironman and 6th outright in the recent Australian Long Distant Championships. His first visit to Japan is already being filled with memories. It seems so good here. The 31 year old told Ironmanlive.com. Its very picturesque and the island of Fukue is especially so. The island is also very mountainous and this presents a big challenge on the course, not only for ascending but also for descending too. The Life Saver is also looking forward to the swim
I like the choppy conditions if the wind blows strong. I relish an ocean swim and this will suit me and the bonus is the water is so clear and clean
So Japan has so far been a great experience for the young Australian. The hospitality from the Japanese is first class and every one here is so very helpful, but for me the language barrier is always a challenge. However Ive had three seasons in France in the last few years, so I know that sometimes when you travel there are some pitfalls. So remember the name Boyd Conrick. As Race Director Mickey Yamamoto says of him, Hell be a sunshine finisher! And dont we all wish for that!
