  1. Nice ride but there is no way that is nearly 9000 m of gain 5000 m max More like 4500 ( I live at the bottom of buffalo So know multible reps of buffalo well including a fatbike Everest ) mrs ip and I have done buffalo (dingo dell) ,Then hotham , Then buffalo (Dingo dell) Rides and they arnt quite 6000 m so bright to dingo dell X3 wouldn’t be any more than 5000m
  2. Not to bring any facts into this like clintred did , but if you watch this interview with the race director of both Kona and the half IM camps it will tell you that a two day race will never happen at Kona , and also that the IMWC will allways be held at kona
  3. Sodium/electrolyte use is the most neglected part for 99% of ironman age group racing and training most folks should be useing 1500mg per hr and some like myself need upto 3000mg per hr
  4. Yes but one person might be as aero as a brick and the other super slippery, so can’t do any comparison a lot also depends on how you rode to get those 220 watts , tyre type , brand , tubbie V clincher and pressure etc etc

    Bike v's car

    Agreee just a matter of time , before something happens I’d never ride in the shite , but then again if had to live. In that I’d never drive in that crap either so what are the options ? got less chance of being killed driving I suppose but that just adds to the problem and frustration of living in a way to overcrowded city 🌃 helicopter to work or move I suppose niether option not available to most

    Time management

    Ditch the evening session and train in the morning far far more time efficient, if you want to train , sometimes something has to give best st thing I ever did is get rid of the PM sessions , some coach’s Ive worked with hAvnt been overly happy when we start working together when I tell them I refuse to do any PM sessions but once they see how much I can cram into a (training) week then they get over it very very quickly great your not digging into family time , so you just have to except that u won’t get your 8 hrs sleep on some nights I’m out the door at 6-30 am most days and work 12hr plus days (when daylight allows ) so home 7-7-30 pm and still get a minimum of 2 hrs done on a week day morning some morns 3hr latest im in bed is 9pm , but some mornings are a 2-30 am start , mostly 3-30am though 4am starts on a weekend is a great sleep in , beside the Tuesday when I get up at 5-20am as that’s my day off training Also indoor trainer is your friend , get to know him/her
  9. Very simple fix , to keeping life/train balance , therefore keeping spouse happy 😃 A get out of bed earlier and be organised B do all your rides (or most) on the trainer C ditch any group “training” sessions , this frees up sooooo much time , and allows you do get done what u need to get done at a time that suits EG early morning and there is no time lost waiting before and after for that dude that’s allways late . Also no time wasted getting to and from session . It’s all about time management D see Point A

    I’ve allways said anyone can finish an IM even on no training its not hard you won’t find anything we’re i said anyone can go sub ten , quite the opposite my personal aim is allways sub 10 , just cause I done it in the past doesn’t mean it’s gunna happen again or even , this week but u gotta have an aim

    Let’s hope next Sunday is as good as this one weather wise was abit cool at 4am for the ride but arwsome now
  15. Take the ferry across the river and drive and or ride on the beach , it’s arwsome and goes for mikes go to wauhope and timbertown koala hospital , is great and gives money to the hospital
  16. I’ve had my KK rock n roll for 9 years 15-20 hrs a week , so let’s go on low side so say 15hr x52 =780 780x9 7020 hrs 7020 x 30k = 210,600k mines still going fine , so if you need to replace it get a kirt kinetic
  17. Yep dogs are the best people
  18. Can’t speak for AP or FB , but yes not only in my first but also in my 10th 20th and 30th IM its a lifestyle choice , not saying you have to be ripped but gee plenty in our world need to have a good look at thier eating habits (as well as many other things ) its still astonishing how many folk can supposedly have done the training for an IM and still be so flipping fat 😬 not sure how they find the time to eat that much 🤔
  19. The only way you’d get me to do 11 sprint races is if they where all held on the same day
  20. What peter said but I’d just swim in speedos or what ever u normally swim in the pool and get changed if u think I might go for a swim skinnthen just wait till u get there plenty of bargains at the expo , you’ll pick up a no name brand for $100 just make sure it’s a good fit
