  1. This is amazing! Can’t wait to run with my boy (and future girl) who is just 16mths 😂 Long way to go yet..
  2. I’d love to go to Kona one day, but if I don’t that’s ok and I will be happy to have just given it my best shot and will be happy to keep racing and just doing the sport. I love this sport, but for me just doing it, keeping fit, meeting similar minded people, travelling, that is what means the most to me. Ed: I think failure is such a strong word. Maybe if you put your all into Kona, that’s all you ever wanted, and you just couldn’t get there, maybe you’d put that label on yourself, but like mentioned above, others would still think you were amazing for the effort you out in.
  3. Wow had no idea they did that. Thanks for that.
  4. What are the ‘women in tri’ spots? All the double slots would be for races after Nice wouldn’t they?
  5. I heard this as well when I first started so I have big ones!

    Port - Race Day

    Well done everyone!! Even those who didn't do as well as hoped or were not feeling so good - you're all amazing for what you did! Serious FOMO at these times. Always such a great motivator to get out the door and exercise.

    Garmin Fenix5S

    Damn don’t tell me that! I wanted one of these earlier in the year because I’m small built and the size appeals to me. Couldn’t justify the price ($799 I think) so found a 3 on fb in good condition (it’s huge though!). The battery life is prob the only downside I could tell - would just have to do my next Ironman quicker haha.
  8. Yes!! Want to do this one day too. Would be be so much harder decked out, geez I’d never do it but love watching the ones that do! Always give me a laugh.
  9. I’m a dnf 😩 1 year old who is teething hardcore and isn’t sleeping has resulted in very little happening this weekend. Thanks for the challenge though @Peter! I wouldn’t have ridden 90km on Fri without it. Now to get to the pool and go for a run at least once this week and I’ll be very happy with that 👍🏼
  10. Ok I’m giving this a go! More for motivation and to get back into it after a few quiet weeks so my times will be slooow 😆 and run will be a mixture of run/walk. 90km zwift ride, 3:18. ETA: flat course
  11. I’m not really for/against any side (eat meat, but have wanted to try to eat more plant based on many occasions) but I reckon a huge percentage of people eating meat and dairy etc would be incredibly deficient in so many things purely from the amount of crap in people’s diet.. just interesting from the other side too.. Prof Athletes with nutrition playing such a large role in their performance and potential pay packet would have people to work all that out wouldn’t they?

    AP's training tip # 4

    I see it as the other way around, and not sad at all. I had some goals, we decided to start a family so those goals are on hold. I hope to one day pick them up again. But you’re entitled to your opinion.

    AP's training tip # 4

    Lots of different views here. My 2 cents as a MOP: having recently started a family (have a 14mth old) I’ve realised just how much time you have to do anything you want when you don’t have kids hah. I’ve put full IMs on hold and will do 70.3 and shorter for the next 5-10yrs while we grow our family. I missed trying to KQ while young (am currently 31) but want to give it a crack so will wait til we’re done with kids and they’re bigger so I can throw myself into training and not miss too much.
