  1. Up for me, quite a bit. Post Noosa blowout and I have no regrets. I guess that's what a week of no training and maximum indulgence can do. I'm hoping its just a bit of water weight. Back to training and watching what I eat this week again.
  2. Yeah that's rough. I wonder how much a long course race would cost to put on? Say Bendigo, Shepp ect. I would love to do a river swim tri.
  3. Yeah fair point, but you may find yourself questioning the same thing in 5 or 6 years when you've done beach road a billion times, seen every blade of grass at Cartini gardens, or recall every tree you run past at the elwood race. We used to have a great selection of races across the season in different locations. Now we are stuck with little choice in Vic.
  4. Interested in the other states opinion, but here in Victoria, it feels as if triathlon is dying a very slow death. We now have 1 long course race in Geelong, 1 main tri series, that even that was on tender hooks mid year. No idea on club numbers, tri Australia memberships. What are the rest of Australia experiencing in their tri scene?
  5. Dunno about lost and found. I saw someones expensive down tube aero bottle on the road just before the turn up the hill. Whats Hastings St like today? You couldnt move, eat or drink anything last night.
  6. This is how you jam 4000 on the course. What a race! The bike is a brilliant mix of roundabouts, speed humps, climbs and descents. I saw lots of explosions on the run. Some people walking straight out of transition. I feel for all those people. This year though will be remembered for the swim. Piss bolt right down to the rocks, and let the ocean do the rest for you. Pop out and do a beach run back to the finish line. It was actually comical with all the people running down to the point. It made the 1st transition long though.
  7. Noosa is buzzing. Its my first time here and its living up to the hype. I did the swim last night, loved that. The expo is bloody awesome, all the brands, all priced to sell. I picked up a tri suit and a pair of googles already. Almost laid cash down for those new Noosa racers. They are wild. The missus got stuck into the shopping as well. The baby got given a free pair of googles. Its an expensive week but it’s totally worth it. The vollies are A++++
  8. I think it would be naive to think Triathlons, since the dawn of competition didn’t have athletes on the gear in the pro ranks. Only change now is they are easily accessible for the age groupers. Triathlon like cycling, is the perfect testing ground.
  9. My teething screaming child should get your attention 😂
  10. First time. I’m bloody excited. Heading up Thursday morning on Jetstar. Training has been shit, but I don’t care. It’s probably the closest to a Kona-ish vibe I’ll ever likely get. I’ll be the one at the gate with smooth legs and a baby praying for a smooth, quite flight
  11. Down another 600 grams. Now 81.2kgs Not too bad I suppose. Trying to eat the food in the fridge before heading to Noosa.
  12. I hope its a no wetsuit swim. Less weight to bring up. Every gram counts when you have a baby in-tow
  13. Wow. That is so bloody impressive. Well done Mel.
  14. 81.8kg. More of the same. This week I had a 3 day conference so I really really watched what I ate and drank. The weight loss had taken a longer then I thought, but I think early on I was snacking a little too much between meals.
  15. 83.0 even for me this week. Last weigh in was 83.8 after grand final weekend, but it would have been higher again last week with a week of travel. I had a good week with food and exercise, and getting a hold of my daily calories needs.
