  1. So I was about to purchase a Quarq power meter for the P5 - are they any good? Or is there a better option? I'm looking for a quality PM, so I'm happy to spend as needed. Thanks.
  2. Congrats, great race and glad to hear you're loving the IM lifestyle! Good luck for the next one.
  3. Congrats again mate. And the answer is yes, you can go faster.....when the next opportunity arises.
  4. Solid work. Wish I could produce a run leg like that!
  5. Exactly the same for me - wife is a genius at this stuff. We always get the CBA foreign currency card and load it up with USD before we go, saves a lot on fees etc.
  6. Cool, that's where my parents live too (I grew up there but live in Bris). Matty keeps hammering into me that low intensity high volume is the way to go, so I think you're on the right track.
  7. Hey Zed, a belated congrats on this - great race. I should have read this more closely earlier - it seems as though you and I are very similar in terms of where we are at and what we need to focus on, ie improved run time. I think you're probably slightly ahead of me in terms of ability and targets - I think if I achieved what you did at Sunny Coast this year I'll be a happy man. As you might have gathered from my race report, Hawaii 70.3 was a difficult race to draw any meaningful conclusions from as it's a particularly hard course. Re your comment on standalone running times, my standalone marathon pace seems to be a reasonable proxy for my 70.3 run pace, if that's any help to you. I'm doing Brisbane marathon in a couple of months to get a gauge on how I'm tracking. I know Matty (coach) has me on the right track with my running, so look forward to seeing some improvement there hopefully. Cheers.
  8. Well done Burgs. Out of interest is there an average heart rate you try to maintain throughout each discipline? Just interested to know what a pro shoots for. I'm assuming you would have target power for the bike too.
  9. Well done mate. I knew you before IM and you've progressed so much. Great reward for great effort.
  10. Wow. Congrats!
  11. Sorry to hear about your mate. I didn't see anything, except the ambulance going the opposite way which must have been for him. I could imagine the audible road markings causing an issue as I also drifted over them and they are quite rough on this course. Hope he recovers ok.
  12. Thanks for posting that - some really good footage from the day. You guys had such a good group there.
  13. Thanks Zed. Matty has me doing a lot of low intensity running (130-140 HR range) - basically told me to throw pace out the window and concentrate on HR only (at least for training). His other plan is to get me a lot stronger on the bike so I can run smoother
  14. Thanks mate
  15. Oh cool that was you. Didn't get a chance to chat - you were flying! Well done.
