    Transitions - What do you want?

    Yeah I’ve been thinking a lot about how much this site has given me and how little I’ve given back. I raced IM Cairns earlier this year and finally KQ’d (it took me six IMs to finally punch my ticket). I hadn’t planned on writing a race report, but it might be a good read particularly for someone who dreams of KQ and has the commitment but is still on the journey. Or anyone else who just loves a race report.

    What do I need to do - 70.3 worlds 2020

    Great choice mate. Athletically, Chris has taken me to places that just 2 years ago I thought were so far beyond my potential. We started the same way you two are - we set a goal, I committed to his program 100%, had complete trust in his guidance, and in less than 2 years working together this produced a result two weeks ago at IM Cairns that I had only ever dreamed about. It takes courage to put yourself out there and let a public forum know your goal, and I’m sure you expected to have your doubters. I can promise you that you’re capable of a lot more than what you, or anyone else, thinks you are. You’re in great hands with Chris. Trust the program, truly commit to it, stay the course and the rewards will come. Looking forward to following your progress mate.

    Cairns 2018

    Easy there Pieman. Just being a bit provocative. She was no closer than every other age-group pace-line.

    Cairns 2018

    Jumping on my wheel for the final 10km of the bike leg certainly would have helped 😛
  6. Gold Coast marathon 2016 1.27.37 / 1.27.25 I ran a big negative split in my last IM marathon in Port last year, which would suggest I probably left too much in the tank 1.38.21 / 1.34.52

    The Mental Health thread

    Reminds me of a quote from an acquaintance who spent years trying to run away from unhappiness - “Everywhere I go, there I am”

    Ryan @ 3D Bike Fit. This thread honestly doesn’t need to go any further. If your friend wants the best, then they need to go to him.

    Respecting the Race

    Lots of people talking about the IM experience as though it’s the same for pros and AG. They are worlds apart in every respect.
