  • 2013 Recap and 2014 and beyond

    1 January

    I have been offline for a few weeks unwinding from the season and letting my mind and body recover so I am ready to step up and get after the work I need to do for next year! I have been back into training for a few weeks now and I am already well ahead of where I was this time last year. I spent two weeks of my off-season in Boulder, CO before coming back to Brisbane Australia for the second two weeks. Before I left Boulder I was able to sit down with my coach Ben Day and discuss how we both thought the year went and what we want to aim for in the coming year. In review 2013 was a great step forward in terms of race performances, experience, handling a big race workload and stepping up to the 70.3 distance. I finished the year having raced 18 races, fourteen Olympic Distance and four 70.3 distance, coming away with a win, two podium places and top ten results in the other races. It was a very consistent year with some major training changes and a big change in my bike position after a trip to the wind tunnel in Arizona. I started the year off with a new coach in Ben Day, he has been a professional cyclist for 15 years and has been coaching for quite a few years at a top level, and his experience and knowledge was something I really benefitted from this year. I feel as though we have both learnt a lot from each other and our own experiences within our own sports. I really enjoy being able to challenge each other while working towards a common goal.

    This weekend I am heading to California for the last race in the Lifetime Series and my last race for the season. I am excited to finish off a solid year and have a break and put the feet up. The Race this weekend is in the stunning beach side town of Oceanside. I have never stopped in Oceanside but have driven through. This time I get to spend a few days there. The forecast is predicting lots of sun and perfect racing temperatures.

    Well it’s time to get packing again, another race is beckoning this weekend, my second last race for the season and second last race in the Life Time Series events. I am heading to the Lone Star State for the weekend. I raced in Dallas last year as the Grand Final and it was a freezing cold on race day. It looks like we might be in for much more pleasant temperatures than last year, fingers crossed! There is a strong start list as per usual with the series.

    So far this season I have only competed in one of the Life Time Series events but for the second half of my season I am competing in the final four events! I am quite excited about that. There are so many races and series to choose from sometimes it is hard to pick between races. I raced the Life Time Series last year and really enjoyed the atmosphere at the events and the great organization behind these events. It is a great series and they support the athletes really well. Most races you go to you are lining up against the best guys in the sport without a doubt.

  • Noosa News paper article

    26 October

    HE IS the "nearly man" of the Noosa Triathlon - an athlete who has a deep connection with the event and a burning desire to win it after two previous podium finishes. For James Seear, who as a teenager got his first taste of the sport at the Noosa Triathlon, the famous annual event is more than a race. http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2011/10/26/chasing-top-level-on-the-tri-podium/

  • 2011 Season

    30 August

    This year has been a hard one to swallow, between inconsistent results and constantly trying to play catch-up on my training and gaining fitness. My broken collarbone prior to the season commencing was a setback but, with Olympic selection on the line this year, I knew I had to put it behind me quickly and look positively towards the season ahead. Simply, I had no choice but to race and train through the peak season with the hope of finding my best form quickly, in order to ensure that my ITU points were high enough to get starts. After some bad results, which remain difficult to deal with, I had a very hard decision to make.

  • Back into the swing of things

    15 February

    I am pleased to report that I am now into the start of my 4th week back into full training load. My recovery has passed quickly and I am currently a few weeks ahead of schedule. I am still being careful though to avoid any niggling problems, which could slow progress down.

  • Broken Collar Bone

    2 January

    I thought I should update you all on recent events! I returned to training after my end of season break and was enjoying being back into the swing of things. I was down in Northern NSW on a bike ride during our annual summer camp. We were, unfortunately, not blessed with great weather. Indeed, it was at its worst with torrential rain and flooding. I was struggling a bit during the ride and was sitting 8th wheel in a group of 9 whilst riding along the Tweed Valley Way. A snake slithered out onto the road as I was riding past and before I knew it my back wheel had slid out and I smacked into the ground quite hard.
