    Kona spot. No need to qualify

    I took a spot via the eBay auction last year, didn't pay as much as this one went for, but it was significant. Still conflicted about the whole thing, even 6 months after I finished the race. However, I don't regret doing it. I will write a review one day and post it in race reports.

    Weak ankles and trail running

    Same experience as other members here... Chronic ankle injuries from basketball to the point I would roll them by walking on uneven ground. Started trail running and walking as prep for OXFAM in 2010. Found that an unintended benefit was improving the strength and balance around the ankle joint. Rolled a couple of times early on, but find that now if I go over, my proprioception kicks in and I'm able to correct it, before I sprain it. Also do weekly balance work on a BOSU ball. Haven't rolled them in years, including at basketball.

    Jackie Fairweather -Canberra

    I never train in groups and very rarely ride on a road bike in a race situation. Normally I'm in the top 20-25% of my age group for the run, but I found the surging to try and stay on wheels after the hairpins and going up the small inclines cooked my legs and my run suffered accordingly (top 33%). I did the Yarrawonga race and got into no drafting packs all race, but managed to hold on for a few km's in Canberra, so I guess that's some small improvement. Will need to adjust my training if I continue to do D/L (unlikely).

    Melb an Port IM double

    I did it in 2012 with no coach and not much idea on proper training, so this may not be as relevant for someone with those things ticked off. I was BOP for both races and very under-prepared physically for both, times were about the same 13:52 (Melb) & 13:36 (Port Mac). Took a week off post IM Melbourne, then struggled with motivation to train, eat right and do the 1%'s (sleep, massage etc). Having a disappointing first race at Melbourne certainly contributed to this. So for me, a few things I'd focus on if I did it again; 1). I think recovery of the mind and mental focus is just as important as the physical recovery. Dealing with the repercussions of the the first race on your racing ego. I guess an understanding that a lot of the hard work has already been done and in the bank and a few slips here and there are probably going to happen. 2). My splits at Port Mac were all slightly faster except the run, so I'd be more cautious about how I structured running between the two races as that's where you're gonna suffer in the second race 3). I think a week off post Melbourne was too long without any training at all, I should have done some swim and bike stuff Good Luck
