    Planning for Your A Race

    I now taper for running and cycling - probably two weeks like you suggest for 70.3, but follow the Lionel Sanders advice on swimming taper...i.e none. I guess its because swimming is often more about the 'feel' of the water than engine in many ways. Think this works for me.

    Single Sided Power?

    I just saw estimates in the range of $1300 USD for dual sided 😱

    What training did you do today...

    1K in the pool at lunch. Finally I can see my speed starting to increase. A fortnight now since I've returned to the pool. Some guy was doing a weird thing in the lanes. The pool was mostly empty, but a guy was swimming down the right of one lane....then going under the lane rope and swimming up the right of my lane...basically swimming in two lanes. Fortunately I could change lanes entirely due to the emptiness of the pool so I didn't have to put up with that weird behaviour while trying to do my laps.

    Single Sided Power?

    Given that SRM power meters usually are the most expensive by far, I don't know how competitive their pedal based ones will be 😕

    Individual 70.3 races lack history in OZ

    Sunny Coast 70.3 well on the way to doing this. Already hosted the world champs in 2016. Been going for, what, 5 + years now? I personally love doing it because its a dedicated 70.3 event and its at a great time in the calendar. Tweed Coast Enduro also been going for a few years now and seems to be getting more popular each year.

    Supersets this morning after power testing on the bike last night. Felt alright, though legs were complaining when I woke up.

    Which workouts should you drop first?

    Is that Sat arvo Trail run really necessary? You're doing a massive amount that day and then backing up the next...How are you going to be fresh enough to do the sunday session after a big bike day?

    Power meters

    Argh, another look-cleat based pedal power meter?! Is it me or is there now shimano spd-sl compatible pedal based power meters? I hate Look cleats!

    Power meters

    I run an FSA Powerbox. Dual sided power for under $1K. It's basically a Power2max crank. I'm happy enough with it. only annoyance is that I need to use those FSA compatible bottom bracket.

    Best AG IM coaches - QLD or Online

    I would add that I've noted that many of the older men who I've trained with in the past simply have way more time to train that others. A lot of them may be semi-retired etc etc. Some of my older mates are able to sleep in and go do track sessions mid morning during the weekdays while I have to fit everything around work.
