    Mooloolaba Tri

    Right, got it. Thanks.
  2. I’m about the same as this, which is more than more my past two IM’s.

    Absolutely fair comment. I came 2nd in my AG for the ocean swim on Saturday and got a medal - and you didn’t even get a medal for the Tri. Heck, even the kids tri got medals!

    I’ll be there - heading up tomorrow with the family.

    Port 2019

    In a word - tired - but been pretty consistent so far. Easier week this week as I have Mooloolaba tri on Sunday. Hope everyone is going well.
  6. Willie I’m supportive of whatever you want to do here mate. It’s clear you have everyone’s best intentions at heart, as well as the triathlon community in general.
  7. Absolutely this. But on the Tweed result, sometimes the bad races are the ones you learn from the most. Nothing to beat yourself up over, just learn from it.
  8. Really enjoyed reading that, thanks!
  9. Swim: 172km (last year - 190km) Bike: 6,672km (last year - 6,638km) Run: 1,573km (last year - 1,378km)
  10. Sub 4 hour run split for IM. That’s the primary tri goal for 2019.
  11. I love going to Port Mac every year with the family but that bike course messes with me, plus a couple of sharp rises on the run. I’ve done both Cairns and Port full, but for next year’s (2019) IM I chose Cairns. Tougher swim which plays to my better leg, but still doing Port Mac 70.3 as a warm up. Both have a lot of positives - the course at Cairns is stunning and the atmosphere at Port is sensational. There’s an interesting website which categorises courses based on difficulty - www.obstri.com Or just do whatever course time, funding, life, etc allows and enjoy it regardless!
  12. Not me. I am ninja-like.
  13. There’ll be people more qualified than me to answer this, but its a hard thing to answer as it depends on your background, is there a discipline you are better at already, how much time can you realistically allocate towards training, etc. In terms of juggling the various commitments, its a matter of getting done what you can, when you can (eg when kids are asleep). But that’s just what works for me - not much more to it than that. If you’re committed to your goal you’ll find a way to make it work. Only other thing I can add is a coach is valuable even if training solo, be consistent and have a good diet.
