  1. Robson the Serial WA cheat at it again

    The Poms have been dumping their crims down here for centuries - we're stuck with him now - maybe he could enter politics as long as he gives up his UK citizenship
  2. Any races on? (prep for Port Macq)

    Is there a space saved for Peter
  3. 40 Kona Slots

    It's their race they can do what they want - if you want a spot - get a coach who knows how to get you there - do what he says - everything what he says - don't question anything just do it - eventually you'll get your spot and all those lottery people will be out there walking in the dark while you're celebrating a successful finish - all the people I know who have qualified have done the work - never questioned - didn't waste their lives researching other ways of making it with less work It's a simple formula The 50 Americans who got spots are not hard trainers, they're Ironman tourists - they'll just be there to fill the bike racks up and to buy merchandise
  4. Any races on? (prep for Port Macq)

    I remember the old days when Paul would have ridden to Gundi in the days before - raced it and ridden home
  5. Scheduling strength training

    Lew is the oldest man to finish Kona IM - they started the 80+ category for him - done over 20 HIM
  6. Scheduling strength training

    Yeah but doing it this way is a lot better than rusting away - Lew says man is not old until he allows his regrets to replace his dreams
  7. most patronising thing said

    This is good - winner I'd say
  8. Geelong 70.3 Enter now

    That wouldn't count I was a much younger man then - I've really aged since then

    You're not the only one mate - different wave length to me
  10. Scheduling strength training

    Yes definitely - small amounts often won't tire you out too much and will certainly improve strength - we do 15min three times a week and it works well - fits into busy people's lives better - and it actually gets done rather than being a "good intention"
  11. I don't use the old 220 minus your age or Maffetone's 180 minus your age - I actually do a max HR test and work it out on the Karvonen method - at least this way it's individualised Also adding in scheduled short (20-30step walks) every 5min works very well in building an endurance base - but you don't get caught up in the mathematics - it can be 20 steps every 3min at first and training for an IM it can be 20 steps every 10min to simulate aid stations
  12. Geelong 70.3 Enter now

    I am home now - 90min cycling - 2,000m swimming - 25 chin ups - 50 push ups - 10min core work - coached the swim squad - now it's time for breakfast and get the nail bag on #livinthedream

    You can't control the time but you can go hard all the way and see what you get at the end #definitelyblessed The course record for Kona is 12.45 - Port is just a necessary step on the way #optimistic

    Because of the time I've been at it, I like to think of myself as a keyboard General

    Mens 70-74 Australian Ironman winning times - each one of these guys prepared as well as they could and did their best on the day so i guess with that same approach I'll be in and around those times 2013 - 13.10 2014 - 13.07 2015 - 12.46 2016 - 13.58 2017 - 14.28
