    I'm not fit enough (Bullshit)

    This is the reason I shave my beard for an ironman.

    Fair enough, nothing will be as easy as what youre doing and will take effort so I guess best just to stick with whats easy.

    I'd be looking to reaplce the banana with something like Bone broth if you have time to make it or buy the powdered version. Although I have been told if using a powdered version to add in gelatin. Pepsi Max does really funny things to my body, its almost like eating something really sugary I get the same reaction, feel bloated (carrying water) and get sore so I have made a concious effort to avoid that. Rather than pasta and sauce a good carb at night if you need it is sweet potato, I steam it then mash and add in butter and cinnamon, very sweet.

    Agree but we aren't running a marathon were doing an Ironman. As I say if you train the right way you can definitely close that gap alright off. God looking at that chart got me really concerned about the fact I couldn't run 5k at the half mara pace but that pace literally has nothing to do with being strong and running off a 180k bike so all is good in my head again. I think.

    I learn from feel in training and also based off previous races. Should be slower than a half and the pace should scare you a bit. I'd prefer to have a crack on the run and fade the last 5k or so than to never know..

    I was looking at the times between 64 and 69. 64 could be achieveable with a whole lot of specific work but I was definitely not in that shape when I ran a low 3. I think all this proves is that historically people are training the wrong energy system for ironman, not that there has to be that much of a slow down. If you train properly you can close that gap between stand alone and Ironman run times. The chart scares me so Im going to stop looking at it..

    Makes you wonder why they don't split the field over 2 days.

    I've run a 3:04 mara in ironman and I would not be a chance in hell of doing the associated times. Take this chart with a grain of salt..

    Time goals can vary based on so many factors. So Ill give a range Swim 50-55 depending on conditions, course length, other swimmers... Ride 4:45-5:15, again same depending on conditions, I have no idea what the course/road is like, just know it is historically fast. Run - 3:00-3:10 Transition + 5-10min Total - 8:50-9:20 would be a good range to come in between and I would be relatively happy with anything in that. I don't really have any excuses, not limping in, carrying a few niggles, have trained the last 15 weeks very consistently with just one weekend off with a cold last weekend where I had 3 days off. My previous 6 months is where I struggled with consistency but I've maintained a good level of training since then. Only one concern I have is ve not done the massive rides I have in previous Ironman builds but that was on purpose, so Ill see if it pays off or if it leaves me limping home the last 20k. Its going to be a good indication of where the work needs to go for Port but I'm excited for both and looking forward to the trip which is approaching very rapidly.

    There is a lot of love in our relationship. I'll give her the same courtesy late may when the head starts showing.

    I had a small mechanical on the bike and ran the first 10k trying to make up some time. Was a learning experience that's for sure..

    There are some sick people out there:

    Last time i designed a team kit it had a lot of black but we went a full white back for visibility from behind.

    Was on track for sub 3 at port last year. I still find little pieces of my soul out at settlement point every time I run there. Took me a month or so till I went back out there after that race.

    Im in, need something to do at the end of next year after becoming a dad in May (2 weeks after ironman) will mean training will take a back seat for a while. This will be a nice family holiday.
