    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.
  6. 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.

    ITU Worlds - the new thread

    I think I would go with “Crank”.......

    What’s the general cause of weak adductors?

    IM Texas on now

    If in doubt, maybe give Dimity Lee-Duke a quick message and get her thoughts. Probably the only one in this whole mess who has half a reason to hold head a little higher.

    Port - Right Here, Right Now

    Tyno- it’s nice of our state governments to work with Wanda on getting the public holidays sorted. Qld Monday labour holiday for Port Mac, NSW Monday holiday for Cairns. Helps with travel 😉

    Swimming stroke question / discussion

    How good is the information in TriGold! Some of the best Ironman information on the net in there. Also I think Zed posted some links to Slowtwitch threads on running recently. I found these swim tips in those links - I certainly took a lot from it. https://forum.slowtwitch.com/gforum.cgi?post=4020943;search_string=barryp;#4020943

    Swimming stroke question / discussion

    I took little away from the Effortless Swim sessions. Too little direct contact and one on one time. I would put the money into 3-4 individual coaching sessions.

    Challenge Wanaka Full just got canned

    Maybe a seperate thread, why is Cairns full sold out and 70.3 still open? I am hoping more spots released for Cairns and more a ploy to get people into IM Oz (I have registered in final 10 days last 2 years @ Cairns). Or is it the allure of racing on the course with Gomez and Rinny ( and Bergs!!!). Do pros attract AG’s?

    I think he might need to update his threshold pace. Not sure how you get 247 rTSS from a 2h’ish run.
