    Best AG IM coaches - QLD or Online

    I've just been through this, some very important question in all this. What's your goal at the end of it. Where are you at now (level of ability) How much have you got to spend? Edit to add wow I just realised it was 12 months ago I went through this process. How time flies..

    What racing flats are the kool kids in?

    I got some new balance Hanzos. Have only worn them for one short run before Boston but planning to start doing some work in them now things are back on track. Another to try is the adidas adios. I'e struggled to find them in Australia in the size I need. I put a pair on while in the US and I just love the feel of them. If Willie can talk adidas around I'll be onto him for those for my next purchase.

    Major fault in 100 runs in 100 days

    Maybe I'm doing one thing right even if I'm not out busting it up that wet hill on Tuesday morning. I've never set a goal time in a ironman. I race with no watch in the swim. Use my bike computer but hardly look at it and on the run glance to my run watch after each k clicks over to get an idea of how I'm traveling... I never have a clue of overall time during a race not that it actually matters. All I know on raceday is if I execute well the result will take care of itself. While I do have time goals I would like to achieve just for bragging rights at the pub, I know that targeting a certain swim time, bike time or run time are stupid. The time will come if I put in the work, execute well and get a "fast day". That's my 2c on that. Re 100runs in 100days. Go easy let me know when you start. I'l throw 2k on the treadmill in every day I don't have a run scheduled and tick them off with you.

    Ironman Aus 2018 - The good, the bad and the ugly

    I've done 5 ironman races and a few 70.3s. 3 ironmans were rolling and 1 70.3. I prefer them and feel there is more hype actually being able to understand the commentator. Couldn't hear or understand them in the mass starts just bobbing waiting for the gun to go. I generally hold my own in the swim but the rolling start allows me to race off the bat and not fight people. I'm not a rough person and I don't want to punch and kick and swim over people I just wanna swim as fast as I can. But regardless of what any of us think it is safer and causes much less angst for the majority of the field and that's what it' about.

    ITU Worlds - the new thread

    Nuthin just had a couple weeks to consider things and my hearts just not in the shorter stuff. Don' regret doing the qual races which were a lot of fun but I've got other goals on my plate which are more important for me right now ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Swim plateau: how to break through

    I'm not saying swimmers shouldn't kick or that it doesn't help them. Our event is very different to a swimming race. They're only bringing the kick in for the very top end and anyone i swim passed in a race kicking is doing a whole lot more than a 2 beat kick which has to be costing them later in the day. I understand this is almost as contentious as hflc but in my view there is only one person on this forum (currently) who should be utilising a kick in an ironman/70.3 or even oly race.
