    As I said, apologies Im really busy at the moment. I have answered these briefly for now. I will maybe expand on a few points if there is interest or answer any additional questions if there is any. Thanks Tyno. 1.Roxii, can you give us a quick rundown of your tri history – notable events, rep teams, KWC wins etc? Kicked off with the Canobolas Tri in Orange in 1991, was won by Jabbs. Was just something I was doing with a few mates for shits and giggles and I supposed I got hooked. Did Ironman for the first time in 1996 and managed to go round 11 times. PB was 10.46, my run always let me down, no matter how much or how hard I trained never seemed to be any good once I got beyond 20 odd k’s in the run. Probably most proud of my 4.45 Half Ironman at Forster, probably my best put together race on a hot day. My only KWC trophy was a first in a team. KWC has always had guns turn up (Michellie and Welchy were regulars in the early days and Gwen lately) so I was never gunna win that, even Yo-Yo came down to KWC once. I competed in the 09 Worlds as a member of team Ireland. I had hopes of trying to make the Aus team but came down with whooping cough during the qualifying series. Doing a WC was one thing I wanted to do before giving it away, as was my plan back then. Just never got around to retiring. 2. What about the earlier sports back ground, going back to the school days? I went to Catholic schools so rugby league was the sport. As with pretty much my entire life, I have always been able to turn my hand to anything, but only to a mediocre level, which actually ends up ok as a triathlete as being OK at all three and not having a significant weakness usually ends up with you being above average overall. 3. As the sole owner/proprietor here....for those that don't know, how did it all start for you – what lead to your takeover from Queen B?...and what about some early memories from the first few months in charge? I had offered to buy the site off Bernie when she started taking a back seat, but she declined. I didn’t think anything more of it and then a few years later out of the blue she sent me an email asking if I was interested. I wasn’t the first she had offered it to, I think Trev was first. I discussed it with the Mrs and she was cool so it all went through pretty quickly. The main reason I bought it was that this place had been pretty good to me and I knew how much of a good community it was and I didn’t want it being bastardised if it went elsewhere. I had already been moderating and that is by far harder than “owning” the site. My biggest issue is that I’m a computer numpty so I’m indebted to Stu (TenPints) for his help. 4. What about some of those early memories and famous/infamous names past. Are you happy you didn’t have to deal with some of the historical histrionics? Do you miss some of the action of the good old days? There were some funny times back in the day and yeah sometimes I miss it but I don’t think it is the site or triathlon that has forced that change it is simply a sign of the times. You simply can’t say and do the things you used to be able to say and do and get away with it any more. I have the legal letters to prove it. I’m lucky that a few of the “characters” I’m still in touch with, I get to see Gunther pretty regularly and he is still good for a laugh. 5. Are you happy with the current direction and feeling around the board and site as a whole? What would you like to see change or be added if you had the time/resources? Yeah on the whole, as long as you are all happy, Im happy. Obvioulsy I’d like to see more people contributing, especially when I know how many people read here. I am toying with the idea of stopping the “website” part and just bringing the new articles into the forum like I was toying with in the News and Reviews tab. While I enjoyed doing the website, a combination of things have made it more difficult. Obviously the tornado wrecking the house put things on hold for the best part of a year, also now with so many social media streams a lot of the “press release” are already out there as quickly as I can put them online, and pro athletes are also the same with their social stuff, plus my work is very busy at the moment and I have taken on more responsibility so it cuts into a bit of my spare time. I need to talk to Stu about implementing all this (and I feel really bad as he had built the site for me) and also want to look at incorporating the Transitions.net.au url and eventually go away from the .org.au url. 6. If there are things you’d like to improve, but currently can’t, could you see yourself putting a For Sale sign up? How many 6 packs would it take? If someone made a decent offer AND had the right intentions I would be happy to offload it, but all that being said its not much of a burden. It costs $130 US a month to keep it online and 99.9% of the time you guys behave and there is not much to do. Im a bit disappointed at how hard it has been to get some financial support/ sponsors from the industry. To be honest Ive given up. I would have thought of all the media streams a forum would be among the most beneficial. It has been proven that you guys will actively support good sponsors, and it’s the one media stream where people revisit (often) giving much more exposure to a brand. If I could get a few “partners” on board to cover costs that would be nice. 7. Does the forum gives you any kind of fame or notoriety far beyond your Shire roots? Does it open any doors in the industry? Does it ever make it more difficult for you? Yes, Yes and Yes. I already knew quite a few people from being around for a while and being from the shire but also having been training with a few different groups and clubs. But yeah the biggest shock was the first year, only a few months after taking over, going to Port and having Pete Murray come up and say “Hey Geoff Meyer wants to speak to you”, I said “Yeah sure who is Geoff Meyer” and Pete told me he was the boss of Ironman Asia Pacific. My first though was “Oh crap, what have we done now!” but he was great and saw the value of having a good relationship with Transitions. Similar when Phil Dally was head of TNSW, we got on great and he would give me plenty of great info (on and off the record) and I in turn would help TNSW out where I could. Unfortunately now that Geoff and Phil have moved on I have lost good relationships at Ironman and TNSW that haven’t continued since they moved on. One of my biggest bug bears is that TA will not engage with me (with the exception of legal threats), I made many attempts early on but kept getting palmed off or passed around to the point where I stopped bothering. I have tried to ask questions on “our” behalf and get promises but no follow up, its frustrating and I don’t think reflects well on the organisation and I suppose is just and extension of member frustration that you guys have expressed about lack of transparency and member accountability and now that Geoff and Phil have moved on I have lost good relationships at Ironman and TNSW that haven’t continued since they moved on. 8. The early days of the forum had a number of big hitters hanging around, would you like to see that sort of scenario return or do you accept it’s a different time and only some, like Bergs, will jump in every now and then? Yeah I think we all appreciate when the pro’s get involved here but as alluded to earlier they all have their own media and social media to look after too, plus I believe they need to do a bit of training, and occasionally when they come to places like this there will be one or two smartarses that want to tell pros how much they know, or how the pro is doing it all wrong and you could understand why they would not want to waste their time and effort on engaging. I think we are lucky enough that Bergs has a thick skin and a good sense of humour, plus we have Lachie who knows us all pretty well warts and all as he has been here a while. I think we may have blown our chance with PJ though. 9. Going back a long time there has been talk of people being happy to contribute to running costs and to help the owner make a bit of coin. Is this something you have thought about or are there mysterious benefactors who are putting some cash in behind the scenes? Nah at the moment it’s all coming out of my pocket. I’m ok with that it’s not a huge burden but I probably need to get off my arse and try and find a few sponsors/ partners/ whatever to try and cover the running costs and maybe make enough for a beer or two. 10. If you could change one thing in the world of tri (ANYTHING tri related), what would it be? (For the purposes of this exercise, you have a GOD like power to make the change happen and smooth any negative issues it might have.) Id simply like it to flourish, by whatever means that takes. If it meant races where easier to put on and cheaper to enter then that would be my one wish. It is a great sport (we all know that) and a great community (we know that too) and Id like more people, especially kids, to be able to experience that.

    Who knows. The questions is do I want to invest into something that really isnt that important to me. I love training and setting personal goals now. I don't need a medal to get satisfaction from doing a distance (no disrespect to anyone here, we all have different motivations). The last two races i have invested in I have ended up with something broken a month out from the race. One in 2012 got nothing back on my entry. Shoulder seperation and other stuff took 3 years before felt normal and got back on a bike on road again. Broke foot in 2016 and missed a 2017 race at home this was after breaking shoulder in feb that year which took 9 months to heal. So currently for me work is number 1. My new job has great avenues and a great environment for me as it is a facility which is about my beliefs and i dont have to find clients they are given. This gym is appointment only has PD workshops every tuesday. I am currently on a 3 month probation period (standard so both me and them have a get out if not working) so do i want to ruin this by putting focus on a race. 2012 prior to accident i would have. When you are out of work and action for 3 years and then do a 1 year internship unpaid, work is important and so is building relationship in this industry. The last 18 months I have learnt a lot and built some great rapport, relationships with AHP and sporting coaches. The training aspect is just what I like doing. 5 and 10km races dont motivate me anymore. Hope that answers your question. I think AP mentioned in a previous post some people just like training and keeping fit not entering races and currently that is me. The most important thing is I am happy at the moment and enjoying things which given my history it is something to hold onto.

    Jess, if you met him on the day of your "forever alone" post you've known him for all of 18 days. Way too early to be unable to see him with her in three months time. If you can't slow yourself down, steer clear of men for a while. Otherwise you're going to destroy yourself with heartache.

    How to determine race weight - The trick is to keep losing weight until your friends and family ask you if you've been sick. Then you know you're within 5kg. If they start whispering to each other, wondering if you've got AIDS, you're within 2. When they actually do an intervention, you're at race weight.

    Boom!!!!! after 5 years of looking for a house that my wife & I could both agree on!!! We have finally found a place we both like. 2.2km from my work & 9km closer to the city and airport. With a great bakery & coffee shop in walking distance. Our house sold first open, dead smack in the middle of our asking range. Negotiated hard but fair over the price of the new house. Lost it to a lower price that wasn't subject to sale, only subject to finance. Then the other buyers couldn't get finance. Vendor than agreed to take our price subject to sale. I said the offer was no longer on the table, it's now $7k less (the cost of a new Canyon) with subject to sale of our place and a longer settlement. After 3 days they accepted our offer. (wife almost killed me thinking we had missed out on the house over $7k) I have also been washing the cars a lot more. We were going to Europe in April but that's on hold now because of having to move into the new house. Another trip to the USA & Canada in September. Cars are still nice & clean. So it's not even the end of Feb & it looks like my 2018 goals are all done & dusted!!!

    Fair go mate - I don't mind copping a bit of shit - but that is really below the belt race report When I looked up the competitor list I noticed there was only two in my age group - I didn't know the other guys by name or what he looked like so my race plan was to go as hard as I could in the swim - ride out to the turn around as hard as I could so I could start into the head wind as early as possible - 40km of head wind is an "arm wrestle" at any time - then when I started the run the plan was to settle in and increase the pace with each lap - it doesn't matter how many are in my age group - I race everyone - I managed 3rd in the category below me - the other guy in my category apparently pulled out after the swim - but you never know he could be up the road 30sec in front of me It was the coolest HOTW start I have ever experienced - the wind on the bike was up to strength - I think the toughest part of the weekend is the four and a half hour drive home after the race - I only stopped twice and each time my legs had seized into the sitting position Again it was a great day - the Gundi team are always improving on what we all agree is a great event - my finish towel is embroided with my name and 25 times finisher

    I'll put money on my daughter smashing stickman & Ratdog. The little devil was holding 5min pace the other night & asking me how my day was at work. She asked 4 times before she realised I was in the box & struggling. She then picked the pace up to 4:50. Only just held on until her endurance went. She's good for about 3km atm. I'm screwed when she can run the full 5km.

    People tend to lament over the 'good old days' believing that life used to be better back then. The reality is, that life on planet Earth has never been better than it is now - humans are living longer, enjoying better health, have more leisure time and far more opportunities in life than any other time in history. Being a well fed, privileged human does not necessarily mean you'll be a great runner although you will have the means to participate and travel to the vast number of events and races that we now have. In 2004 there was 1 Ironman race in Australia so the stakes were high - it was a big investment and a rare opportunity to race. For me, those factors kept your training honest. These days there are Ironman events on every weekend somewhere in the World. In this region, perhaps 6? or so, within 4hrs flight time. Same goes for the number of 'fun-runs' and opportunities to run full marathons. I believe so much opportunity and choice has diluted the standard of the field, even though participation numbers have increased. At the pointy end, the Elites have more choice on where they can go to race so you may not get a high concentration of Elites showing up at one particular event which may account for smaller numbers of sub 2.40 at any one event. You can't blame technology for making humans slower, on the contrary, Garmins and Strava are an addiction that motivates some people to get out the door. Participation in endurance sports has become a life-style choice due to greater leisure time and travel opportunities. Some people are simply happy to reach the finish line and participate. If they are happy, who are we to criticise?

    Been over in Dunedin for the NZ Master Games. The Mrs entered 6 events (100m, 200m, discus, shotput, indoor rowing 300m & 500m) and got gold in them all! Has so much more natural talent than me it is embarrassing. She has been crook as a dog for the last month too with a flu. Rowed as a lightweight (<61kgs) and even beat the big girls (open = heavyweight). On the piss now

    I was meant to do a 1500m swim. It didn't go to plan with garmin ending up recording 1750m, even though I definitely swam back to the start end of the pool. Stupid thing. Anyways, nice to know I could swim much further than I thought I was able to (my swims have recently been limited to a nice comfortable 1k).

    I did a FOUR MINUTE ride yesterday. That's right, FOUR MINUTES. We had a time trial in the foyer of our building (Zwift) with the Tour De Cure gang. There were 40 participants. The best distance was smack bang on 3 kms (two small inclines thrown in). I did 2.8kms. First time I have ever done a time trial. We raised just on $700 in two hours. Great effort from all. FM

    Don't apologise Goughy. The intention of my post was not to make you feel bad in any way, shape or form. More to take it as an opportunity to perhaps think about the situation with a different mindset and perspective. Yes, its pretty crappy at the moment, and yes you are frustrated and not quite sure what the next steps are..............but, plenty of positives to be taken from all of this as well. You are smarter than you think and you will work through this. I have seen you (via this forum and social media) reach out when you need to and that takes a great deal of strength. I see you post coming from a position of frustration only. And that's ok. This crap is frustrating and its ok to vent here. Thats whats so great about this thread. Let me be clear - there was absolutely no offense taken from your post and I certainly didn't perceive it as selfish in any way. Keep at it!!

    Well, while we've got some way to go with Kyan, I can say that the networks around him and his school just rock, like I'm talking foo fighter 3hr set ROCK. He's certainly had 2 physical conditions which have exasperated his anxiety - he's not sleeping well and has large tonsils which may be affecting his airways; he's had inflamed nostrils and throat (not associated with his tonsils) so has had soreness there. He's missed more than a week of school since starting 3 weeks ago, actually all in the last two weeks. And wednesday he had a big freak out in the middle of the day when he thought we'd have to talk to the school about him etc, and ended up calling his psychologist he's seeing next wednesday, and then onto the child and youth mental health services at the hospital, as we thought we might have been dragging him up there. But they were all really helpful, at least for us. He eventually calmed down, I think from exhaustion. While I'd spoken to his home room teacher (who was great), I decided to talk to his head of year. They were fantastic, and pretty much immediately said to keep him home till after his psych appointment, then talk to them again. We'll still try and get him to school but won't panic if we can't. They're going to get his teachers to email us work for him that he can do here. And they have plenty of options and programs running that can help out. They have staff there whose job is to come around to homes to talk to kids who aren't coming in (she said it would be a nice change for them to have two parents who would welcome them into their home), but there's lots they can do. From later starts if mornings are an issue, to dropping one class, or less days of the week. And while I've got a doc certificate for some of his days off, she said don't worry about them, she'll sort it all out with the office! It really took a load off for both me and Rob after that. And I think they were pretty happy to have us being proactive to the point of contacting them ourselves - I don't think that happens there that much.

    Hey Goughy, I'm sorry to hear of the above as it sounds like a shit time for everyone involved. I don't for one minute claim to understand what it is like for you and your family at present, so please take this for what it is and how it is intended - simply a different perspective. As I head towards nearly a full year since I have seen or spoken to my children (and this being the second time this has occurred - the first lasting nearly 2 years), I would give absolutely anything to swap and be in your position. As shit as the current situation may be, you ARE in your children's lives, you DO have the ability to impact and influence them, and you DO have the ability to tell them every single day that you love them. And maybe it is simply the last point that is the most important. I don't know the answers to the issues you describe above, but mate, just be there. Tell them you love them, give them a hug and maybe the shit will sort itself out. Maybe it won't, but at least they will feel the love. I hope you can all work through this soon. Good luck Ayto

    So did my first husky long course yesterday, was targeting 5hrs and made it with 11sec to spare. so happy with that. The run was tough and I struggled, just very happy I was in the earlier age groups. The wind was just starting to pick up on my last lap of the bike and it was hot. Couldn't of asked for better conditions for the swim Overall it was a good weekend, the Sprint was really quick on Sat as it was a qualifier. 1hr 10min wasn't quick enough for someone from my club to earn any points in the 40-44 age group The pro men and women were flying in both the sprint and the long course. Kids loved doing the miniman and mrs limited did the 10k fun run.

    I've an interesting year so far re running. I don't run much in terms of volume as my back can't handle it but have noticed some improvement in times since changing jobs in Nov and utilising the gym at work. Mostly, my week for running looks like this: 2 x medium tempo runs. (5,00 - 5.20 pace or similar) and the distance varies based on time available but usually 40-50 mins. 1 x speed session, 5 x 1km@ 4.10.4.20, can do 7x1km some weeks but not every week, occasionally a week will go by where this one doesn't happen at all. 1 x long easy run, usually on a Sunday. This one is done to time, never distance but the terrain varies from canal tow and undulating to full on muddy trails. Usually done with my neighbour, so the pace is 'chatty'. This run is never less that 90min and never more that 2.10. No idea of the distance we cover as I had no gadgets. I hit a Park Run PB of 20.47 a dew weeks ago which I was happy with. Here's what's interesting. I've just got a whizz bang all singing and dancing watch and I raced a duathlon yesterday which was 5/20/5. At the gun I hit my watch to start the Duathlon program, after about a km, I thought I was running ok but breathing was difficult as it was 1degC. I looked at my watch twice in that first 5km and the pace said 6.50 and 7.xx. I'm thinking this is a £400 POS and didn't look at it again but did press the right buttons for T1, bike etc. I raced on feel as per normal. I ended up running the first 5km in 20.19 and the 5km in 21.57. Turns out, despite me changing the watch to metric, 'Pace' was recording in mins per mile So, targeted speed sessions and the long easy run seem to make a difference. I'm not sure if my mid tempo running is bringing anything to the party but I'm convinced that consistency is helping a lot, even if the volume is low (my running before was more ad hoc). This 'peak and trough' and terms of effort stops me from smashing myself or taking it too easy.

    Possibly slightly different but posted link anyway in case it's of some use. If I get a chance I'll post an update on the other thread in case it's of any value to anyone, but basically I'm almost back to normal except if I overdo it. I'm pretty guarded in really rough terrain, or on a particularly long run, but have since done an Ironman and an 100km Ultra run so can't complain. Plus I still get to do our weekly 'Stubby Run' so I'm happy! PM me or give me a call if you want any more details.
