  1. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Seems a few are trying to qualify. Thought it might be a good idea to get an idea for whose trying to qualify, for which events and at what races etc. I'm interested to follow people's progress. I'm trying for standard distance and will be racing Robina Coffs and Mooloolaba.
  2. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Must have. I hope it isn't issues in my ag. I worked out I ended up in 13th but they had me 11th. I'd like those extra 4 points 😉
  3. 9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    Quick search on athlinks shows she failed to qualify first start when coming 2nd. Had another crack at cairns where she won but there was only 2 in AG. Funny thing is even though she only beat one other person home to get her spot she also smashed Prizna's DNF in the same race.

    Which race was she the only one in her age group?
  5. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    I'm good at multi tasking.

    Mooloolaba points also up if you want to check the position after the shuffling of age groups.

    We're not all supreme athletes like yourself flanman 😊
  9. 9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    The hill up to flynns is worse on raceday, MFD has the crowd to get you up, flynns is desolate and the hill seems to go forever and kicks hard at the end.
  10. Marathons

    Alright, for the next 5 weeks I'm no longer a triathlete... Boston marathon is on Monday 16th April.... I've never had a crack at a marathon before, talk to me about how you handled a marathon vs tris and what struggles were the hardest on raceday.

    There is not really a choice to be made?

  13. Marathons

    Awesome Mr flower I can't wait. I also had a mate run last year and he loved it as well. I'll pm you a pic of my singlet. FB the training hasn't been ideal, goal has been qualifying for standard distance world champs and now the marathon training starts. It's not an ideal prep but I never know when I might ever run a marathon again so I'm going to have a crack. It' been some interesting reading what struggles people have faced, considering the prep it will be interesting to see how it goes. I will say if I make it to the start line in one piece Willie has been a massive part of that, sent me a pair of shoes that took just over 12 hours to arrive when he knew my current pair were no good at all. That bloke I owe a beer.

    The way it has been redone they could potentially change the finish shute to go into the carpark to "show off" the new area. The running festival finished that way last week I believe.
  15. 9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    Yep town green has been redone. Should make up for the road quality
  16. Got 404s, what next?

    Fatpom why aren't you interested in a wheel cover? The HED Jet is basically just a wheel cover isn't it?
  17. Marathons

    I agree Nealo, while all my training and pacing advice I will always ask my coach, getting some other peoples actual experiences in a marathon is awesome.

  19. Marathons

    My goal is sub 4min ks. So sub 2.48. I will be starting with people with similar qual time I believe so 2.59. Hopefully a few of those will go out too hard and give me something to follow and then pick off as they start tiring. I've been doing my 70.3 racepace efforts between 3.50 and 4.00 ks so that's been my guide for this. I understand what CEM is saying 're enjoying it. I actually take a whole lot in when I am running. Maybe I lack that focus the really top guys have but in my best races I've been smiling, thanking vollies and high fiving kids on the sidelines. I plan to do this in Boston too. I used to have s dream of running a Sub 2.30 marathon but I enjoy triathlon too much now to just run all the time. Thanks for all the responses it's been good reading!
  20. Marathons

    Thanks FB I like that advice about treating the last 10k as a 10k time trial. Thanks mate.
  21. Marathons

    Thanks Triatx that was great info and exactly what I was after, I don't have any worries about my pacing ability as I tend to under estimate if anything. I thought you might be right re boredom as in ironman you're rarely alone on the lap courses. Greatly appreciate the response.
  22. Marathons

    I'm offended you even asked. 2 years ago I paced the 2:10 half marathon group at gold coast. It was like march of the zombies, everyone had headphones in. One girl started talking to me around 6k in. I was shocked and answered her back, she then took an ear piece out and said oh sorry no I'm on the phone.
  23. Marathons

    I'll watch out for the flat spot. Boston is a bit of a rolling course which hopefully will break up the monotony a bit. I can't stand flat courses.
  24. Marathons

    Thanks Ex, I dont want to do a heap of marathons so I really wanna make this one count Maybe I should have started training for it a few months ago and not starting today
