    One Week One Australia

    What a crap article. Doesn't even mention what he considers to be the 8 best trails in Aust. Given that they only total 150km, "8 trails from all the states that I could logistically squeeze in, within a short timeframe" would be far better descriptor. "As a runner, the most important thing is to get out there and run." So true, but again this article barely touches on that either.

    Motivating Musicians- Who's yours?

    I played this a lot after being offered a job in Perth.

    Motivating Musicians- Who's yours?

    Bone Machine was the album that sucked me into Waits' bizarre world. Lyrically dense and thought provoking, musically raw and idiosyncratic. I still return to it often.

    I rest my case.

    Splitting a long run

    Running well in Ironman is all about running well when fatigued. I think replicating that is a valuable part of training.

    It was appaling when Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature a couple of years ago. So clearly should have been presented to Tom.

    Simon and Garfunkel never sounded so good as this:

    Splitting a long run

    It really depends on your circumstances, priorities and preferences. If you don't want to impose on your wife and you're aiming to build endurance from your long run, I'd split your total of 2:20 by running 45 minutes to the beach, swimming, then run 1:35 home. Alternatively, if you want to share some relaxing beach time with your spouse, run 2:20 to the beach, do your swim as recovery, then meet her afterwards for some time together before driving home.

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    You did say it "doesn't matter" in some races. Whether that equates with saying it's OK is just semantics. Meanwhile, you seem to have failed to grasp or address the points I made. And no, I'm not getting upset about the subject. You started this thread asking what people thought about issue, I simply told you.

    So it's OK for those not shooting for a Kona or a WC place? Or if the race is designated the Aust Champs in 2019 it's not OK, but it's fine to draft in the same race in 2018 or 2020?

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    So if it's OK for people to draft at entry level events and it becomes the culture of the sport, why wouldn't they draft when they move up to longer events which are raced pretty much under the same rules? If the behaviour is accepted (whether by governing bodies, race organisers, TOs or fellow competitors) at the entry level and shorter events, we can't expect any better behaviour or controls as athletes move through the ranks. Don't take up golf.

    Turquoise Coast Tri (Jurien Bay, WA)

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't mind laid back. Nor do I mind racing in unfavourable conditions. A windy course just means a choppy swim and a tougher cycle. I might check out the Aust Day race. Not overly fond of crowded sprints on loop courses, but I need some racing. I was actually down at Point Walter this morning running the MAWA 10km. Conveniently close to home.

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    So which events are OK to cheat in and which are not? Is Husky OK because it doesn't carry the IM brand? Or it just the shorter races? Do what you like in a sprint, but you should race by the rules in a HIM? An Oly is each way bet? Or is it decided by certain price points? If you get an early-bird entry you may be fortunate enough to be among the few individuals allowed to draft on race day?

    Back in the day when it perfectly acceptable to expose yourself in a non-lewd manner.
