  1. What training did you do today?

    Sorrento return ride with Arthur's Seat each way (210k) + 4km swim. Starving.
  2. What training did you do today?

    Am: 3hr ride with 6x5min @ 380w early on (although got carried away on last one as it included Oliver's hill and did 431w...) rest just easy PM: 2hr run on the treadmill... 20min starting at 13, up 0.1 every 2min. 20min at 14. 40min between 14.5 and 15. 3x5min at 16 with 2min in between at 13. 20min cool down from 13.5 down to 12.5...

    Haha I'm more than happy to cop it on the chin! I love riding a bike hard, that's for sure... It's interesting how different the half and full distance racing is from a pacing and nutrition standpoint and unlocking it is a bloody tough puzzle. In saying that though, when guys are going 7.40-8hr for a full, that is fast. I'm lucky enough to still be in my last year of uni and have relatively little expenses which gives me the opportunity to go into races with the freedom to put it all on the line. I've done 40 halves and started 4 fulls and to be honest, a lot have contained a lpt of physical suffering at the back end. The days when things pay off though feel bloody awesome! I'll come out with likely a slight different game plan at Port Mac, but make no mistake I don't know if I'll ever be a guy happy to sit in a bunch at 250w while there's guys getting 10min up the road.. All good though, I'm confident I'll podium at one of these bloody things one day in the future.

    Don't worry, everything I do and plan is with Gilesy and I have 100% faith in him. I choose to share on here as I feel as though it can provide some insight above and beyond just a results list and I truly love being a part of the wider triathlon community. Hopefully, this can provide some insight into my journey and a bit more of a 'story'. I also enjoy following everone else on here at the same time!

    3.10 at Hamburg with 4 toilet stops. Need to sort my gut issues more than anything for every distance!

    Of course. However, I am confident that I can run 2.55-3.00 off a solid bike. It, to me, is about finding a balance between solid and too hard and knowing how many matches there are to burn. Hopefully Port Mac will be that.
  8. IMNZ 2018

    Agreed. That day was trying to get back into the race, yesterday I tried to break the race apart. Ultimately it did, just didn't benefit me!
  9. IMNZ 2018

    Not my day out there. Pinned it early with Skipper after a sub standard swim to get back on (first 40k in 55.40) and then went straight to the front and kept pushing which was silly in hindsight. Lost BTA bottle cage with garmin on it at 60k and then ended up getting off the front at 70k with three others coming with me. Unfortunately had a glute issue since Thursday after geelong and flared up at 115k and I lost 8min to the break in last 60k... tried to get running and was ticking off 4min/km or so looking at it after but everything just got worse and guts bezerk went too and ended up pulling the pin at 16k.. a lot of things to sort put before Port Mac. Also need to find the balance between aggressive and smart.
  10. What training did you do today?

    Last few solid days before IMNZ taper. Yesterday: AM: 4km OW swim with 12x200 build PM: 3hr ride as 20min warm up then 1hr as 6x through 8min @ 70.3 pace (all 340-350w) with 2min @ IM (300w) between. Solid hour. Roll out aerobic 1.40hr to get 3hr total.
  11. Challenge Wanaka - Currie/Gomez

    I wish it was a backdoor brag. The backs of their suits all looked fantastic running into the distance out of transition!
  12. Challenge Wanaka - Currie/Gomez

    Have a feeling @hey_burgs and Appo may have done the same for Jake Montgomery at Geelong from what I read on his blog. (Happened behind me so didn't see)
  13. Challenge wananka. It's on like donkey Kong

    Belly, Mckenzie, Dougal and Jesse T is a bunch with huge fire power on the bike. Wouldn't be suprised to see a catch.
  14. Geelong 70.3

    I'm in. As it falls, it's my first ever time doing the 70.3 at Geelong and my 40th half-distance race.
  15. What training did you do today?

    3km swim with 2k in westuit. Few hours applying for 2019 Graduate Programs. 7km jog. Nice to have a couple easy days into Geelong on Sunday and a good chance to catch up on other areas of life.
