  1. Staffordshire 70.3. anyone heard from Lachie?

    I thought the standard seemed quite good. Was around 900m vert on the bike I think and quite technical. Run was also had one bike hill three times (probably slightly longer than mooloolaba hill) and off road sections through forest etc. Finally it was pushing 30deg which is hot here! For reference, the male pro winner went 4.01
  2. Staffordshire 70.3. anyone heard from Lachie?

    Unfortunately for me, 5min into the bike I looked down to see my bottle with all my nutrition in it was gone. After the first hour with no nutrition at 349w I started to fade badly so began taking in the on course powerbar drink. Got off the bike and started running but gut was in all sorts from the drink. Held on until 10k but then had to stop 6 times in 4k to drop the kids off and couldn't get more than 10 steps of running without having to s**t. An hour on the portaloo after pulling out and guts are only just coming around.
  3. Staffordshire 70.3. anyone heard from Lachie?

    No more Wales for me, into Ironman Hamburg a month earlier instead!
  4. Staffordshire 70.3. anyone heard from Lachie?

    Sorry, been MIA on here! Yep, I'm in tomorrow. Looking like a fairly warm day but a nice solid course for sure! Interestingly they've told us it will be a 1min penalty if zipper in undone below breast bone on the run to be in line with ITU rules...
  5. Another Ironman to become a half

    Yep, that's the plan!

  10. UK places to stay

    Thanks guys, Really appreciate the info. Was having a look today and can stay reasonably cheaply in Edinburgh so thinking about even just staying there for the two weeks and trying to rent a car for that period.
  11. UK places to stay

    Hey guys/girls, I'll be racing Staffordshire 70.3 on June 18th and Edinburgh 70.3 on July 2nd. Looking for some ideas on where is best area to stay in UK in between for training friendlines? Cheers, Lachie
  12. What training did you do today?

    Couple of days putting some k's onto the new Dimond with some solid swimming and running to boot. Melbourne weather struggling to make up its mind..
  13. What training did you do today?

    Up at 4.50am, 140k on the bike including 6x5min @ threshold and a 30min tempo piece, packed up the car, drove to Albury, arrived at 4.15pm and headed put for a 1.40hr run including build and then 40min tempo. Cooked now. Bit more training and drive up to Syd tomorrow.
  14. Ironcentury Update Thread

    Was just rolling some laps of centennial park (girlfriend just moved to potts point so will be splitting time between here and Melb) and saw old mate still rolling laps on the TT bike. Was suprised he was still riding at 3.30ish. Makes for very long days. After 45k of laps around there (first time riding there), the thought of doing 180k followed by 42k running just in the park is now only further beyond my imagination
