  4. Kona Pro Field

    Where did you see this? How was the course different to previous years?
  5. Kona LIVE Coverage 2017

    It was on the Saturday closest to the full moon until around 2005-6ish. Then changed to second Saturday. the 1996 race (when the old course record was set) was super late, maybe 26 October, winds are often a bit less late October
  6. Female Kona Champion and top Aussie.

    Macca - 7.54 at Roth and Kona win in 2007 Hellreigel - 8.09 at Canada and 8.06 at Kona (2nd) in 1996 Peter Reid - Canada win and Kona win in 2000

  8. Hawaii Ironman betting

    TAB and Sportsbet usually come out with a market 24-48 hrs before the event. Frodeno opened at maybe $3.50-$3.80 last year. I got in at $2.80 which worked out well.
  9. Mark Allens son Mats 5th at 70.3

    He was actually first M20-24 at IM Korea in 9.53 Won his a/g by 94 minutes! 3rd o'all (no pro category in this event)
  10. Mark Allens son Mats 5th at 70.3

    Drew Scott was 21st at Chattanooga on the weekend

  12. Max HR Run vs Bike

    It's variable between people but generally max HR is ~7 beats / 5% lower on the bike compared to run
  13. ALTITUDE TRAINING ADVICE

    There is negligible benefit from 1-2 hours of hypoxia (low oxygen) exposure 2/week. Best options for altitude training to get improvement: 1. Go live somewhere high (1800m +) for 2-5 weeks. Ideally you go down to a lower altitude to do the very hard sessions (live high train low) 2. Altitude tent - ideally it's 18+ hrs/day which isn't really practical but there is some benefit from 8-10 hours/day. 3. Do hypoxic 'intervals' (not while exercising) with low oxygen concentrations (you need a machine of some sort to change the oxygen percentage). John Hellemans has published on this, it's quite interesting 4 (a very distant 4th). Doing 1-2 hrs in a mildly hypoxic environment as you've suggested. Some of the research actually suggests it decreases performance! As mentioned above there are probably better uses of your time/$
  14. Where did my legs go?

    I reckon the training volume is the big one.
