  1. Don't give me your pity, I'm still a dick. Apologies for the lack of responses I've been off driving bright red convertible vw beetles, drinking beers, swimming with turtles and being a genuine legend. Thanks for the critique Peter, sorry to read you're full of shit as usual. Fortunately for me I'm in a pretty sweet position where the money wasn't too much of concern. My wife cried for me when I told her I got the DQ. A moment where I realised how much of not just my life went in to the race and everything prior, it's truly not a solo adventure.
  2. Sure did get a DQ. Long story of my day as short as possible. Went in full bravado after sunny coast 4:13, was ready to be cocky as and crush it. I got dealt a crushing blow, swim and rode within plan and walked to a 5+ hour marathon and spent more time on the toilets than I did running. The DQ, crossed finish line got medal, bead necklace thing and towel. Old dude pulled me aside told me he was head ref and asked explained I'd received a penalty and not stopped. Briefly discussion lead to a few things, my number was clearly written down but bike description was wrong. He was head ref not marshal who did it, we discussed some more he said I could go get the rest of my finisher stuff and go have a feed. Having just done an 11hour + Ironman feeling like a piece of shit I didn't care too much so I said thanks DQ me I'll deal with it after. I'll flick them an email with my bike photos after i finish holidaying and question then.
  3. I started my 'dedicated' Kona block the week after Gold Coast marathon. I had a real good block of 4 weeks, then decided to take it easy for a week as I got a bit of fomo and entered SC 70.3. I thought at this stage I'd ease off for a week, do 3 solid weeks then have a lighter few days either side of SC. 4 weeks later and the last month I've been sick for two weeks which resulted in zero training and then the sickness had a flow on effect in to work commitments which resutled in me not getting sessions done. Anyway this weekend is SC 70.3 and if I'm fully recovered from last weekends adventures on and around the toilet bowl I should be fresh as and equally as unfit. Prior to the past month I was hitting all time highs for bike ftp and my fastest ever 5km so who knows how this weekend will go. Fitness just doesnt disappear........hopefully After SC weekends will look like So theres still plenty of time and plenty of work to come. I don't mind leaving the training late, i feel it's almost like momentum. All rides since like june'ish have been on the trainer except for commutes becasue it's too f'ing cold and I'm enjoying sweating it up indoors. I fly to Kona 9 or 10 days before so I'll do one last 'long' ride over there, it'll be about 4 hours, no longer than that. It's primary purpose is to get a gauge on rpe to power in kona conditions.
  4. Run distance legit? Good progress for PJ

    AP's training tip # 4

    If you're looking to me for an example you should probably aim higher. 😭

    So you've got time before the kids get up. Throw the kids in one of those bike trailer things, you'll avoid traffic and get training in. Become better at your job so you don't have to work as hard and can have lunch. Pick up kids, sweet another training opportunity. You can't clean or throw some washing on as you cook for and bathe the kids?

    Dan Plews was fastest ag overall at Kona last year. During his build for Kona 18 he had a wife, had a 6-12 month old, had a full time job at a university, consulted for another sporting company (can't remember what it was) and coached triathlon athletes. I believe he also had an injury. What I know is he got shit done and he had no time to complain about having no time.

    We all have families. We all have jobs. We all have 24h hours in a day. We all make choices.

    I think talent is over rated for Ag KQ. Talent is needed to be a good professional but ag KQ is pretty much just consistent work.

  12. Not to derail a thread but for clarity sake I was working 6 or 7 days a week, 60hrs over 5 is significantly harder!
  13. Do what you enjoy, lives change and people evolve. What you may have loved 10 years ago may no longer interest you, what may have been a priority 10 years ago may now be insignificant.
  14. So true! It's rare for a bunch to ride easy on an easy ride.
