    The good news thread

    Yeah I know there is a bit of contact in the classes over there but they have 'stock rods' here (Brisbane) which would fall apart if the bumpers were used... Every year, the poms send a team over to the teams champs (4 vs 4) where they borrow locals cars and they usually equip themselves very well. Frankie Wainman Jr has quite a following and Lee Fairhurst.. I just reckon these guys are crazy throwing round these things that nowadays cost over $100k and basically demolishing them..it's come a long way since I was a kid and most guys built cars and engines in their back shed.. Nothing tastes as good as a dirt covered hot dog either.. 😉

    I dont understand the no contact 'stockcar classes over here and in the UK... sprint cars are hard core though

    I don't understand.......

    I am seriously struggling to understand what this has got to do with anything? Is this like a "they were asking for it" type comment or am I misinterpreting (hopefully)?

    TA Membership time

    sorry I thought you meant it was a requirement to join TA if you did a certain number of races... fair enough the club wanting you to join if you are doing races run by them..

    nope.. it might end up better financial decision but I think you need to do quite a few large races (long course) to make it worth while over paying for one day licences...

    Swim coach west Melb?

    most squads will have lanes for people like you and should scale workouts to each lane. Fast lane might do 400m reps, slow lane 200m or whatever. Dont ever feel that you are unworthy, if any coach or squad makes you feel that way then they arent worth giving your money to anyway

    Be interesting if he agrees as I am pretty much just cut and pasting what he's said before... so he probably wont 😎😁

    If my memory serves me, his view is that it is best to stay as close to race weight/race fitness as possible all year around. The idea of a fitness ‘baseline’ (ability to separately swim 3km, 100kmTT, 2 hours year round) or off season weight (within 3kg of race weight) makes it easier when it comes time to get into a pre-race build. If you routinely do no training over winter and gain 15kg then you are behind the eight ball from the start… Makes sense really...

    FFF1077 - Just for you mate

    Comfortable for how long? There is a difference between 60 -90 mins on a trainer and 6 hours outside. make sure the position is as good as it can be to cover all options.. but yeah, seat is way too high

    What do I need to do - 70.3 worlds 2020

    Would check out the possible events in Asia that you might target. Check out the results and see what the Top 10 finish times were. See how you stack up to these times. Identify areas to improve. Just do it. That age group one of the fastest I'd say and there might be a lot of other people thinking the same thing in terms of shooting off to Asia to bag a spot but you'll never know that till you turn up.. You'd probably be better trying to qualify in Asia for a WC in the middle of Kazakhstan or somewhere... You've got a decent amount of time until you'd need to be hitting the qualifying event so thats a bonus. I wont say it will be easy, because it wont, but that will make it all more worthwhile..

    Kona qualifier 15+

    I think a keyboard warrior thread should be set up in this forum then those that dont want to read/post dont have to and those that do will. It'd be the busiest thread on here I reckon.. FYI: AP jumped on the bag PJ bandwagon recently but I guess as he has 'runs on the board' he's allowed to ask questions/raise concerns about the path the WC has been on..

    Swim coach west Melb?

    Send some emails to the better reputed coaches offering $50 for a half hour one on one session either directly before or after one of their squad sessions. They're already at pool so have nothing to lose. I did this and got 3 easy things to work on that immediately saved time..
