    Australian Masters Games

    Yet again, triathlon does not appear as a sport in next year's Australian Masters Games (Adelaide - Oct 19). It hasn't been on the radar for years. Anyone know why ? It is in every World Masters Games. FM

    Port 2019

    MoM is coming too ? That’ll be excellent. I too am only half the man. Accomodation already booked. Training starts today. Will be great to catch up again with you up there. FM

    The good news thread

    Just a night time shot to tease. FM

    What training did you do today...

    I have always wondered the same when I see swim sessions online. 95% of my training sessions include a swim between 1 km to 2.5 kms. The rest is drills with tools. I only do sprint training only a couple of weeks out from long races. FM

    The good news thread

    After a lot of pain for 4 days on holidays in NZ, I had my bad wisdom tooth removed yesterday. I had a bit of pain yesterday and still today but should start getting better tomorrow onwards. FM PS: No, that was not the good news, On the way home from the dentist, I picked up my brand new road bike.🚲 My last roadie was bought new in 2008. I should be able to have a ride in a couple of days after the gum/jaw settles.

    Benefits of knowing your swim time

    I like to know my swim time. I use it to look st what percentile I am in my AG and overall. To me, a better outcome. FM

    Ironman WA 2018 - The Comeback

    Just a great story - before, during and after. It’s what life’s about. “There is something very special getting your medal from the one you love”. Awesome. FM

    Busso 2018

    You could have gone 9:09:xx if you didn't lay your lips on a spectator. I just don't know what's with you lot nowadays. I guess it's just a lack of passion for the sport. FM

    Garmin and Strava

    I joined Strava three years ago. My training Ks have to be recorded/confirmed to show I am competent to complete a Tour de Cure ride. So yes, I have been on for three years now and just started logging Ks for my 2019 ride ==> https://tourdecure.com.au/profile/?memberId=76140&tourId=1021 FM

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    Next April it will be my 30th year. Started in 1989 with the Corp Tri at Narrabeen (500/15/5) at the age of 30 after a sports career in swimming, rugby league and basketball. Only had 2009 off Triathlon due to bike crash and multiple broken ribs and operations. I have done about 150 or so races from short to IM. Enjoying a few 70.3 races lately. I would love to do IM #5 but I honestly not in the mood for one. Looking forward to the 60 AG and especially time after 19 July 2019. FM

    Taupo 70.3

    I am getting my money’s worth. 4 x 440 ml can of Jim Bean n coke - NZD 11.99. That’s just over $11 OZ. Me thinks our taxes are a wee bit higher on alcohol. FM
