    Long course weekend entry for sale (half iron distances)

    Bump -$150?
  2. Hi, My wife entered the LCW Jervis Bay but has been sick and unable to train, so wants to sell her entry (and she's going to volunteer instead). EE have confirmed she can transfer. She entered the three events at half iron distance, paying $350 inc insurance & fees. Looking for $200 ono. Email to paul.wakeford@gmail.com preferred - I don't get here much any more. Thanks, Paul

    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!

    IM Cairns 2017

    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.
  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.

    IM Cairns 2017

    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.

    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...).

    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

    IM Cairns 2017

    I arrived in Cairns yesterday. Today, cool morning. I did a bike/run from Trinity Park to Palm Cove and back, around 1pm - 2pm. About 26-ish and quite windy too, coming from the south so a headwind going back towards Cairns. Forecast is for it to stay about the same all through the weekend, if so I'll be happy with that compared to sweatfests of previous years I did it. Maybe some rain on Sunday afternoon/evening. I'll see if I can get some pics of the sea tomorrow. Cheers, Paul

    Tri Toys: best, worst or most wanted.

    Best: I'm in the honeymoon period with the Garmin 935, seems good. Maybe the square screen worked better though (920XT). Worst: Rollers. Lust: smart trainer. Surprised no mentions for DI2 shifting yet.

    My local resident Cairns mate says it's been very windy for the last week. Temp and humidity fine though.

    Who is Zwifting?

    I do Zwift but not group stuff - more as 1. A way to record stats to Strava, 2. Something else to keep me distracted from the boredom of indoor training 3. It's a more honest workout than the constant traffic light stop/start - good consistent pedalling, more race-like.

    IM Cairns 2017

    I'm in for Cairns full too - first IM since Cairns 2013, 4th iron distance in total. Full on taper madness is here - have I done enough training?? If I live on bananas for a week can I lose a few more kgs?? I have just ordered a Garmin 935 having worked out yesterday that my 920XT battery is only lasting about 10 hours now which won't cover my expected 13 hour finishing time..

    Cycling PTSD

    I'm also losing my nerve - training for IM Cairns this year, the traffic feels a lot worse than the last time I did a lot of riding (2013). Maybe I'm just more aware. I'm doing a lot of Zwift stuff now - I'm almost looking forward to doing 6 hours on there this Saturday instead of going outside (rain is forecast - Illawarra region).
