  1. Congrats to those who got their spots! For the benefit of those soon to apply, I applied in the recent application (Nov 2018 to Jan 2019) and have been guaranteed a spot for 2021. While it seemed a bit far away, it probably worked out for the best for me as there are quite a few commitments for this year and next year.
  2. Thank you! We hardly get to take family pictures like these post race as usually both wife and son are cranky after waiting so long! Thanks for reading! Yes, consciously reminded myself about the swimskin this time. Sebastian knows he's cute too and uses it to his advantage haha Thanks mate! Didn't manage to see you out there, well done to you too!
  3. Race report in link below, I love this race! Will be back again! http://just-tri-hard.blogspot.com/2019/02/tweed-coast-enduro-2019.html
  4. Ditto. It isn't the fastest of courses and the patchiness of the road surfaces can definitely take it's toll. I've just posted my race report in the Race Report section, if anyone interested.
  5. Me and another 9 from the Logan Tri Club. 4th time in a row for myself, love this race! But yes, would be better if later in the year.
  6. Thanks for reading! Yeah I really need to put a reminder note somewhere, this has happened 3 times already! And almost one more in an Ironman change tent, luckily I noticed the guy next to me removing his, so I remembered!
  7. Thanks for reading! Uh-oh I can't call you out anonymously any more haha
  8. Race report from yesterday's race, it was a fun day out! It was nice to meet Cranky out on the course too. http://just-tri-hard.blogspot.com/2019/01/qts-robina-january-2019.html
  9. I started using Saucony Guide few years ago, switched from Asics GT 2000s. I have flat feet with practically no arch, so these shoes with mid sole support suit me. I used to get orthotics but I find they over correct so now I run without them. I have gone through 5 pairs of Saucony Guides and have no complaints. They do make them in 2E widths as well.
  10. I do check my swim time during the swim, just to see how I'm progressing. Usually every 500m or so. I do it as I make the pull underwater, the disruption is minimal. No different than checking the km splits during the run leg. After the swim, using the multisport function, it's only natural to look at the watch once I've hit the lap button. Having the watch tell you the distance of the swim also helps explain any deviation from an expected/target swim time. It doesn't change my race strategy for the bike and run. And I'd rather know if the swim was over/under distanced than to have it play it my head wondering throughout the remainder of the race.
  11. Great racing and great report, thanks for sharing. Well done and congrats!

    Well done! And you're improving from race to race! Keep it up!
  13. This is pretty interesting. I kinda do both as I run on the same road/path for my out-and-back long run. Outbound I'll be against traffic, inbound I'll be with traffic. Partially on footpaths, partially on road shoulder. Usually in the early mornings, so barely any traffic and the road shoulders are pretty wide. The roads are multiple lanes as well, so cars can move to the outer lanes if required. I start and end my weekend rides through this same road as well, sometimes cycling in the middle of the inner lane to avoid drains and potholes.
  14. Wow, talk about six (or less) degrees of separation! Yeah IMOZ 2015 was another memorable one. I guess that only makes the experiences a whole lot richer and good stories to tell. Thanks for this photo!
  15. Relay swimmer in 2001. First sprint tri in 2002 in Desaru, Malaysia - won the juniors category (only one junior category for 19 years and under). Pic below - speedos for the swim, bike shorts on in T1 and run shoes with flat pedals on a borrowed bike To date, 12 Ironmans (applying for Kona legacy this Friday!), about 20+ half IMs and maybe around 30 ODs.
  16. Thanks for reading! Yes have fully recovered. Probably happened while the body is under stress and need to sort out before the next Ironman.
  17. Bib knicks from Scody, 25% off site wide. Used the $25 TA voucher in as well. I actually walked in store to try out for sizing, they wouldn't let me use any of the discounts/voucher in store. So have to wait until they send me an email saying that it's packaged nicely and ready for collection. Talk about wasting time.
  18. Thanks for reading guys! Yes onwards and upwards!
  19. I've always been honest in my reports, including this one even if it's a DNF. http://just-tri-hard.blogspot.com/2018/11/im-malaysia-2018-dnf.html
  20. Well done on moving up the ranks. Great report! Thanks for sharing. I'm with you re bike handling skills despite doing this sport for so many years. It has improved though as I started cycling to and from work this year. Always intrigued to try out the triathlon in Huskisson. Perhaps will get myself there one day when the timing is right.

    Wurf watch

    His name is on the start list of IM Malaysia too. 2 weeks before Busso.
  22. Well done AP! And enjoyed this very honest account of the race. 46th Ironman and 19th Kona, bloody legend!
  23. Totally agree. But I have to admit it was pretty entertaining following the story. Bit like the Kardashians for triathletes.
