    I agree. Perhaps your banter is a bit too subtle though!?

    I've found that the 400s have helped with my racing, I'm finishing strong and not feeling any fade. Which makes me think, are a lot of tri coaches doing it wrong with their swim sets. Very much swim orientated, with a lot of sets built around 100s, which is very relevant for swimming 50m or 100m in a race, but we swim 2 - 4km in a race...

    If you don't qualify you can always buy a spot, for a sizzling hot $3000! Hi Jaimie, You are in luck, we have ONE spot left on our IRONMAN Foundation team for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship. I am pleased to announce that we have cultivated an incredible race package that sets athletes up for success and creates positive, tangible change within race communities. More information is included as an attachment to this email. If you are interested in a more flexible package at a secondary donation amount, I have included another option, just for Emma! DONATION/FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT: $3,000 INCLUDES: 1 Entry into the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in South Africa Custom IRONMAN Foundation Race Kit (including choice of Tri Top/Tri Bottom or one-piece Race Suit) Invitation to both you and Emma to experience and participate in the IRONMAN Foundation’s Community Service Project in partnership with IRONMAN 4 the Kidz.

P.S. 100% of all donations raised/provided supports the IRONMAN Foundation, a U.S. registered 501(c)3 charitable organization and the mission to provide service through sport and commitment to community. Kind Regards, WHITNEY STALOCH

    2020 70.3 World Championship

    Taupo would be more interesting as I'm guessing the swim will be in the Swan River as oppossed to the crystal clear Indian Ocean..

    I suppose it would have to be, otherwise Taupo wouldn't be a consideration in September because of the cold. Is IMWA/70.3 in December going to pose an issue? Numbers would drop for those races if the champs were held in december.

    Have they determined what time of the year it will be? Because if end August, surely that rules out Taupo?

    I'm glad you enjoyed them, I hate em! But they've helped my overall endurance.

    That's quite a big main set. Maybe do a warm-up, some drills and a main set of 10 x 100m focusing on form, you should be able to come in 1.40 on a 2 min cycle. Personally I focus on the quality of the set rather than the volume. i.e smaller main set, but quicker. And mix it up. Seems a lot of tri-squads tri swim sets are built around 100s and to a lesser extent 50s and 200s. Try doing some 400m main sets. You should find it really hard if you've been mostly doing 100s. I'm not sure of the relevance of 100m sets for long course swimming.
  12. Yeah I had the Clifton 3s, then bought the 4s, didn't like them as much so found another pair of 3s in the US and had them shipped out.
