  1. AAA 2018

    March 10th. http://www.eliteenergy.com.au/event/australian-alpine-ascent/
  2. AAA 2018

    So 2018 was to be the year I would finally do AAA. Turning 50, coming off an ironman year.. perfect. Except it's been moved back to March and is now the same weekend as Mooloolaba which I am committed to. Aaaarghhh!

    12:56 for me, not quite the 12:30 goal but still a PB so I can't complain. I found the swim rough, I felt like a bobbing cork on the waves, but sounds like it was just me. Bike was fun, surface rougher than I remember but it went quickly up to the last 20-30km when the wind was a bit much. I saw quite a few TOs and people in the pen box early on. Legs went bad after about 20km of the run but the coke pulled me back together and I ran between the aid stations to get home. I have plenty of ideas in how to improve for my next IM in 2019 - I need a year off IM to do other events - thinking of the LCW, Centennial Park Ultra (if it happens), Mooloolaba, AAA (if that happens in 2018), and will enter the Norseman lottery again with no expectations of getting in.

    Good luck Andrew and family.
  5. Cairns 70.3 - Wanted: loan of a Trek Speed Concept Seven seat post

    Sorted by Discovery Cycles!
  6. My brother in law just found he left his seat post at home -Trek Speed Concept Seven series. He's going to call the local bike shop tomorrow to see if they can help - but in case they can't, does anyone have any other leads he could look at? Thanks, Paul

    100mg per tablet. A long black is about 150mg and I have 3 or 4 of those a day normally.

    I wrote up my more detailed plan and times here (public post)

    Spot on. This week I've noticed I've gained at least 5km/h going north and lost the same on the way back. I need to keep an eye on power/hr both ways to make sure I'm not slacking or overdoing it.

    Long line at rego this afternoon.

    Water cooler than expected - much warmer than the ocean where I've been training (near Wollongong) but still cool. Wetsuits strongly likely (was: 'guaranteed' - but just in case...).

    There's video embedded too, dunno if that will post here.

    Palm Cove 08:45 08/06/2017. Slight breeze, clear skies. Flat sea. Sun feels strong, good sunblock required. Btw the road into Palm Cove is now closed before the roundabout. IMG_0857.MOV
