    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    That’s mostly just AP though

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    First tri would have been 1997 or 1998 at the old Oasis Gym in Canberra. Remember doing a St George Oly in Wyong in 1999 or 2000 that was about 40C finished in about 3 hours and they were packing up as I was coming in. Did some Sri Chinmoy long course races in early 2000s. Usually one of the last to finish in about 6 hours+ . Failed to automatically qualify for IMOZ at Gold Coast Half in 2006 in 5:22. Baggsy later gave me a spot First IM 2007 at Port in 11.21 Total of 5 IMs at Port. Quickest 10:48 in 2014. Slowest 13:15 guiding another athlete around in 2017. That was my last tri of any distance I think.

    At least their timing system doesn’t crash like Ironman’s

    Had a snake get blown out of a tree once. Landed between the two riders in front of me (one of which was Mrs Shuffla). It quickly made off for the side of the road while I swerved in the opposite direction.

    Biggest Loser 2018 edition

    I haven’t been super engaged in this up til now. Got myself a routine and have cut a lot of snacks. Dropped 1kg last week. Down around 2.5kg since the start and can see sub-80 from here. Will be the first time in a few years. Feeling good.

    Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    I think you just go to Strava and do manual file upload from that folder.

    Ironman pacing strategy

    Actually she rode 5:11. I reckon you aren’t far off correct pacing if you can keep HR around 140. Better chance of running 5 min k’s with a controlled effort on the bike.

    Ironman pacing strategy

    My wife rode a 5:06 from memory (maybe 5:10) and 9:45 overall at Busso a few years back. I reckon should had had difficulty riding 2:25 for a half. But she has a diesel engine and can just lock in a pretty solid pace all day How hard were you going for the 2:25? I’d say 5:10 would be a reasonable target.

    What does being part of this team actually mean? What’s involved and what does one get out of it?

    Lots of gear changing. Almost like riding in real life!

    Long Course Weekend - Who's in?

    That’s Easter I think. Easier to get leave but unusual to schedule at that time in a tourist town.

    Long Course Weekend - Who's in?

    Plenty of 0-2C mornings this year. I spent 11 years in Canberra so certainly appreciated the warmer weather up here the first few years. Now I seem to be less of a morning person.

    Long Course Weekend - Who's in?

    4-5 weeks before IMOz would be a great three day hit out. Even three weeks out might be okay, but it means a lot of travel and cost so close to IM. Personally I’m more likely to do LCW in April as it means training through summer instead of winter.

    What training did you do today...

    Felt like it to. Ran 50km trail run in the rain last week. Legs only just coming good. Was going to mention I saw you sipping a latte. Assume you earned it earlier in the day.

    What training did you do today...

    12km run around Port Mac in the first real humidity of the season. Sweating buckets 💧
