  • Year of first Tri race?
  1. KQ questions

    I did a couple of half socially in my early 30's and had a miserable time with runs around 1-55 and as slow as 2:20 I think. Outside that I didn't do tris. started training for triathlon / Im specifically in 2011 in 40s. Never really been a runner and narrowly avoided a heart attack on my first training run of about 1km. by 2015 I'd been to Kona twice with a best qualifier of 2nd, won a 70.3 , reduced my fastest run to 1:30 and was on the podium for the state champs for Olympic and sprint in the only season I tried short course. biggest year was 4 IM and 2 halves in 6 months. average training volume for running: 20 km per week. i think you personally would be better if talking to a coach than seeking advice here. btw I personally was self coached,
  2. SO.......???

    5 years. No need to cry.
  3. I'm a little lost - Post Ironman

    Agree. Last time I did Cairns then Busso in the same year I did another two full Ironmen and a half in between. i never really had the break thing people talk about and never plataued either. I think train when you want to
  4. Plateaus

    Yep, I did more or less the same training on the bike week in week out for a couple of years. I became an ok rider
  5. Port Mac bike course on virtual software?

    That's going too be your biggest problem - wahoo doesn't go bump, let alone bump bump bump ....... bump...
  6. Don't be THAT triathlete.....

    From what my partner tells me - male triathletes are no different
  7. cairns bike transfer and bus race morn?

    Have done private car, provided transport and ridden. For transport - Just dropped off and didn't look at what happened next. happy to do that again
  8. AUS AG doping bust

    When they race at itu at pro at IM those people have zero effect on me - but an Ag in my division has a direct effect on me. ag can go onto pro. social media can negate the need to be pro in a small sport like tri to enable people to make money
  9. AUS AG doping bust

    Cheat your way into 6th - loser!
  10. IMOZ - is the specialness gone

    It's an ironman as far as I could tell. I mean whose so vain they measure the quality of the course by the number of spectatorors, if you want atmosphere goto Im France with at dj and fireworks at the end. No Aus IM can go near that.if you think IM Aus Is hard try something like Japan 2015 / Aus is a peace of piss. If you want to be to do th best you can do, ,iM aus is a good as place as any for that. for sure; im aus is the hardest in aus, but don't make the mistake of thinking ,Im aus is particularly hard compared too what's out there imo finishing time is it's all about perfcentage of effort and in that respect ,Im Aus is no different than busso. and the ride is shit - nothing To do with dead roads - we ride that all the time. It's the bone jarring bumpw for almsoet 180k: believe what you like but that's a major case nutrition brother to numbers
  11. More swimming numptiness (sorry!)

    I call bullshit in most the advice here - muscle through a swim - shit no
  12. Overcooking on the bike or not?

    Without a doubt this - from you otb brick times you should run sub. 1:30.
