    I reckon most people going by feel go too fast too soon. I agree that feel is very important, my best half IM was faster than planned and a negative split. I also agree that APs racing mindset is more important, but hope someone has tested running and biking an IM with an IF > 0.80. Most marathon WR are negative splits for a good reason.

    So how do you choose a pace. Most pros fade on the run too. Whats wrong with taking the conservative pace as a starting point?

    I used aqua jogging, lots of Achilles heel drops and new shoes to get through IMNZ. But evey injury and case is different, what shouldn't change is that you shouldn't lose much run fitness with 3 weeks to go. For run pacing I look at this chart. I generally run bricks and long runs a touch faster. I have also switched to walking 45 seconds every 3km, this allows me to reset each time and keeps me focussed on just my current interval.

    There are some sick people out there:

    This morning some guy aggressively honking his horn screams "I'm going to fkn kill you". Then again to my mate 30m up the road. For no other reason than we were on the road I guess #Syd Oly Park.

    Congrats. So there must be some lofty goals this race? I can't be the only one brave (or stupid) enough to publicly disclose race goals?

    No medals for teams :-(

    What is their inTent of these high prices? Good outcome here. I was in the winning men's team at WS 70.3 and we got plaques and everything, it was a little embarrassing as we were well and truly beaten by mixed teams 😂

    Lol I had 3 years off from my 1st. My 2nd was a 1.5h PR so hopefully the same for you. RBR, sometimes we need a few failures to succeed, sounds like you were giving it a mighty crack!

    Yep. At 28km I was on track for 3:26 at Cairns this year, started puking and finished with 3:49.

    My PR was 1.5 years ago, I felt so much younger then... First time at Busso, 5th IM in total. Don't want to get too far ahead of myself, simply need to focus on committing to a race plan, controlling what I can and executing on the day.

    Whats the weather going to be? Sub 10. PR is 10.02 @ Cairns 2017. Swam 1:09 NZ, 1:17 Cairns, so 1:10-1:14, should ride 5-10min either side of 5h and fk me if I don't go under 3.30 this time. No kore IMs till late next yeat so this one has to count.

    My consistency hasn't been perfect but in the last 15 weeks I averaged 16:40 hpw, lowest 7:19, largest 23:26. For IMNZ last 12 weeks ave including the race was 15:40 hpw, I was injured and only ran 2.5h in the last 5 weeks. Last 12 weeks for Cairns I averaged 17hpw but didn't feel like I regained full run fitness. I will bastardise Joe Friel's peak in 'Your Best Triathlon', it's built around 4 race pace bricks starting this Friday but still keeps some intensity this week. I completed 21h the last 2 weeks and 5.5h today so will probably land around 15-17 this week, not exactly putting my feet up but cutting back nonetheless.

    Yep. Build has been decent but body maintenance not so great so time to freshen up. My main goal is get tighter on nutrition, after tonight's taper celebration, and to keep up on swimming frequency.

    Taper starts in a few days so I will chip away and provide something. I only have AG 35-45, I need to learn how to web-scrape with Python. As for winning my AG, I don't need any data to tell me that 'aint happenin'.

    I need a flak jacket, I'm taking bullets left and right. Don't think I will live this down unless I win the beer mile.
