Gold Coast Ironwoman Hayley Bateup has been keeping herself super busy in the lead up to the 2012/13 Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironwoman Series Trial, which will be held at Tugun on 15-16 September.
Bateup will line up for the trial with a solid base of training thanks to her recent business venture, Bateup’s Body Blitz and is says she is feeling confident in her fitness leading into the event.
“I am feeling really good heading into the trial. I’ve done a lot of cross training this year with my Body Blitz Participants as well as my usual sessions of swimming, board and ski.
“The trial format certainly suits my style of racing with long endurance formats and lots of running I can’t wait to get out there,” Bateup added.
Hayley had a pre-trial hit out last weekend taking part in the Bridge to Brisbane running festival. It was the first running event of this kind for Hayley, who contested the 5km event, where she finished 3rd in the open women’s division.
