This morning Max and I had breakfast at Mount Martha beach. It was a beautiful spot to sit and have a peaceful breakfast. Max was down there doing a 4 kilometre (2.4 miles) swim with some of his friends. So I thought I would take some breakfast down there for when he finished. I had muesli and yoghurt and Max had 7 vitabrits and a banana followed by some orange juice. After the breakfast we came home and then he went off for an 80 km (50 mile) bike ride.
Max is madly training for his next major sporting event. It is the Australian Ironman on 6th April at Port Macquarie in NSW. In this event he swims 3.8 kilometres(2.36miles) rides 180 kms(112miles) and runs 42.2km(26.2miles) all straight after each other. It is one hell of an event. This year he hopes to finish in 11 hours. This is why we call him Mad Max.
