  2. I reckon you gave him a gobful first I agree with your sentiments though. If you've got a safe cycleway option and you're not in a bunch, I can't see why you wouldn't use it
  3. I personally think that strength becomes more important than technique in an open water environment. My stroke is quite different in a pool than in the open water and I'm often unable to beat or keep up with those in an open water swim whom I would normally lead out in the pool. Despite the added buoyancy, the wetsuit does change my stroke and requires much more effort in the shoulder area. Regardless of how comfortable a wetsuit is, I've never been able to maintain good effortless technique in a tri swim. The only thing that appears to help is practice, practice, practice in a wetsuit, allowing you to build strength. And experience navigating in the open water of course. But it's still not as comfortable nor as natural as swimming without a wetsuit. The more aggressive, stronger swimmer with heaps of open water experience but only basic (even ugly) technique will get you everytime in a tri swim.

    Awesome. I'm impressed. Can I ask your age and prior running background? I would get injured even just looking at this

    training the science

    I don't see why this has to be so complicated. You need both your long slow distance sessions and your shorter intensity speed sessions. Just like you wouldn't spend all your time on one discipline, neither would you spend all your time training at the one pace

    Average times for ...

    Not if you're getting off and running 5+ hours If you're doing a 5hr bike and can back it up with a 3:30 run, then that's an achievement!

    Regret

    Regrets. Yes. But there is nothing that can be done to change the past. The only thing you can do is don't dwell on it. Just learn from it. And keep moving forward.

    Weight? Lighter usually - not always - means faster. Look to reduce your weight if you've got some to lose. Lengthy background in triathlon or another sport? A consistent long term sporting history usually - not always - means an advantage over those with only a few years training. Continue to work hard, consistently and with patience.
