    What training did you do today...

    A bit of strength work this morning and a 2km straight steady effort in the pool. Chuffed with the speed for the effort

    Packing to head down through there in an hour or so. Camp overnight, kayak on the Clyde at Shallow Crossing tomorrow and run/climb up through the Buddawangs Sunday. Yep, truly God's own.

    Any news on Lionel Sanders

    Yeah he's never going to be a gun swimmer. I'd love the guy to win, but the only way he can is if a number of the top guys are out injured or have bad days or IM clamp down on the drafting. No idea how close together these trains are and for how long, but looking at some of the photos it's little more than 4 or 5m. If they're allowed to race like that, unfettered, there is zero chance of someone not part of the train catching them and hitting T2 relatively fresh. Candles will get burnt.

    I'd run, but I'd hit the (actual) wall after three steps

    Not a chance. My job is physically demanding as it is. I really struggle adding training on top even when I’m working days and getting good sleep. 😩

    What training did you do today...

    I used to do some of my best training working nightshift. Long ride straight from work at 7am. But I'd never ever go back to that (permanent night shift for 18 months)

    Any news on Lionel Sanders

    With wurf swimming better it is really hard for him to bridge back up and then pass and get a lead. Swimming is just super hard to improve from where he is to being a main pack swimmer, the guys ahead all swam as juniors and have brilliant technique. This year the swim seemed to stay together, throw brownlee and Frodo in the mix and I expect the whole thing to get strung out. I really could see Frodo going off the front with Amberger and holding on to win the race in 2019, brownlee will be able to go with those two and is a very strong biker over 70.3 so he might be able to go with them on the bike too, Gomez will be stronger next year also. Sanders is going to need a day that is really hot and really windy to make it super hard for everyone else to have a chance.

    I had planned an hour in the pool. I bailed at 1k. Too bloody tired after 4 nights. Off to the hairdressers to nap in her chair then home to bed for a bit. Big weekend planned.

    Any news on Lionel Sanders

    It's a tough gig when you judge success as winning the world championships, especially in a sport where you have limited (to no) control over your competition. As @Andrew #1 said, the goal has to be to get his best effort out on the day. Will that ever be enough on the day Kona rolls around? Who knows. I love his honesty, but I do wonder if it gives an edge to his competition. At very least he is an entertaining personality for the sport. Keen to watch it continue to unfold.

    Lionel can win Kona. The guy is new to the sport and making the same mistakes we all made when we first started out racing. He's just making them as a pro. He's new to the sport. Look how many times Macca raced Kona & failed. I read in his book he went and spoke with a body builder to get tips on how to win Kona.

    I still enter the 18-24 age group. Been in this age group for 30 years now.

    Any news on Lionel Sanders

    I think Lionel totally can win Kona, but like most athletes who aren't Frodo or Lange, they need conditions to suit. This year came 100% down to a runners race because the bike conditions took a lot less out of the runners, and didn't allow the super strong riders to excel in the normal challenging conditions. He was only 2 minutes off winning last year, with a blow up on the run. The reason he was ok last year is he got into an uber cycling group early, and they rode big time into the runners in normal Kona conditions. This year, neither he nor Sebi got into that rider pack due to other issues. If he can get out in the second swim group - like he did last year, if he can get in a good cycling group, like he did last year, and that group can work together to gap the runners, like they did last year, he is 'potentially' one for the strongest runners in the 'cyclist' group. His run in Samorin was awesome, where for the first time he was unable to catch Sebi on the bike (due to the first mistake of switching to a small frame bike after Oceanside) but still completely schooled Sebi on the run leg. The problem is that he wont always be in that swim pack, and from there its really game over.

    I said in a race briefing once when they bought it up - 'let us know where they are testing so we know where to dump our bags of ice...'
