    What training did you do today...

    There is only 1 thing worse, and that’s helping move house for someone else!

    Cotton eyes - I find myself every 6 months or so re reading AP diet masterpiece in TriGold for same reason.

    Gold Coast team for Major League Triathlon

    I like it - I think the international element has legs. Good on the Gold Coast, TA and everyone involved in having a crack!

    Swim coach west Melb?

    Three things for me:- 1. Cross over in stroke - work on entry in front of shoulders, if it feels too wide it’s likely right. 2. Lifting head to breath - there is a lift, tuck chin in 3. Body position - hold that 20cent piece between butt, streamline in push offs to feel the core engaged. You swim very similar to me, all of the above is advice given to me over time. I would get a coach - the good thing is there is some long hanging fruit that will see immediate improvement.

    Training solo

    I’ll assume bike is biggest concern? I must always have a clear structure to my sessions. If not it’s so easy to coast or cut short sessions. I upload all my ‘workoouts’ to Garmin - for me I have trouble saying no to my 520. I personally love running solo, it’s meditative for me and I have no issues in doing what I need to do so cannot comment there. Swimming sucks either way.......squads are better though so good luck on that. Some really good stuff posted recently with Andrew, Zed and crew having some great workouts tips etc.

    What do I need to do - 70.3 worlds 2020

    Kieran - is it the slot or bettering yourself you are chasing? Honestly if wanting to compete at 70.3 world champs - take a late season slot to Nice next year. If bettering yourself, work out the improvements required and get started on that process. You will be internet coached I suspect where you are so work out of that suits. I admire what you’ve done in reading race reports but it’s going to take a massive commitment to make it happen. Work out that why well before putting yourself and family through it.

    Trex Cross Tri - Port Stephens

    I don’t think so........but a hard tail MTB was fine. Low tyres pressure, as wide as you have. IvP’s fatbike would have been ideal......

    Why can't we all just get along???

    Long term stalker here, minimal poster but I have sucked a lot of information out of this site . I just find the recent need to post and argue irrelevant crap (in TriChat) really devalues the forum. I truly believe some of the best information for long course triathlon can be found over in TRiGold. It came from discussion and input from a various inputters and viewpoints. There appears to be 5-6 main posters at present and the weight of their posts is giving me the feeling of overload. But - I was recently reminded you only get out what you put into things - this is a reminder for me to put myself, posts and questions out there in this forum to help create the discussion.

    Trex Cross Tri - Port Stephens

    No idea what a euro style course is but bugger me I hated that course last year. Fire Trails with shitloads of sand and 1-2 unridable hills. I hated it.....but really it’s the most unfit I have been for any event ever so maybe that had a bit to do with it. No real technical skills required. Overall (if fit) a great event - beautiful calm swim in fingal bay seeing bottom whole way, a non technical but sandy and tough MTB, run was a fair chunk along Fingal bay beach (enough firm sand to be pleasant). I’ll be back again this year.
  13. Only one for me with a 1.22 first half and 1.34 second half. Hardest last 10km of my life (after over pacing of course) and longest recovery period.
