"Six days to go now so there is not really much we can do fitness wise now, it is more about keeping the engine running. So, I had a little run in the energy lab that morning, I did 1 hour and 15 minutes with a few one-mile efforts in there. It felt good to put in a bit of race pace intensity after a few days of travel and a few rest days. Then I had a swim at the pool, a 3km swim set and again with a few race pace efforts to get the heart rate up," said the Australian.
