Year of first Tri race?

  1. Sold out - oversubscribed. No waiting list. Sorry for those leaving it late to enter; congrats to those 1500 plus age groupers, 26 pros (seven internationals) and 42 teams meaning right now there's over 1600 athletes making a record entry to race in the nation's capital come December. Safe Training to all!
  2. Beginning next week with IMFL rego, if you want to travel over and do an Mdot race here in North America, you'll need an Active.com membership. See here: http://www.ironman.com/triathlon-news/articles/2012/10/florida-registration.aspx#axzz2AscKne2O It's free, but just something to be aware of if you're thinking of doing a race which sells out quickly.
  3. Would anyone have a DVD / Torrent file that they could share with me? Happy to pay for it if needed. I don't care which year, just wanted to have a look at it again as it's been a while. I have the 2007 DVD and just tried to play it but it's not working anymore for some reason Thanks, Rog
  4. Been a while since I've posted. As some may remember (or not) I had some issues with my heart after doing my first IM in Melbourne this year. Long story short I did the race with a bit of a chest infection (not a smart decision, but one I made at the time) and although a bit slower than I expected I did finish in 12:20 and felt fine after the race. After 3 weeks of recovery I ventured out for a few slow runs with my 12 year old daughter, and found my HR running at 90%-95% from start to finish at a very slow pace. After a few more episodes of the same over a couple of weeks I saw the doctor and was told I had Bronchitis, but she didn't think that would affect my HR like that, so and appointment was made with the cardiologist. After a 3 month wait I finally had that visit and a subsequent follow up stress test and echo. He gave me the all clear and suggested that I probably had some damage after the race which had healed since, and that my current high avg HR during running was more lost fitness that any structural or electrical problems. He gave me the all clear to return to training, but recommended I stay away from IM length races in the future, citing Dr Andre La Gerche's work and saying he thought up to HIM distance was much less stressful on the heart in the long term. Just wondering if others have had changes in their avg HR after IM, especially those doing their first. For comparison leading into the race I was able to run up to 30k at 75% of max at around 5:40 pace post IM I found I would avg 88% at the same pace, and in fact couldn't break into a run at all without it going into the high 80s and sometimes low 90s. Also I'm not a couch to IM in 12 months type, I've been steadily building distances for a decade, and had done a few HIM's and had steadily increased my training over the 12 months prior to the race to a number of 5-7 hour sessions. As I said the cardiologist said he expects me to be able to regain that fitness, so I'll see how the avg comes down once I start getting fit again (and start to shift the extra 12kg I've put on). But I was just curious if others have seen something similar.

  7. Yup, that's me coming to the rescue again!!! http://goo.gl/zUmS4 PS: thanks everyone for all the beers you shouted me (not) at Port as promised last year...
  8. So with (less than) two weeks to go, I'm starting to think about how I want to eat for the next two weeks. I'm starting tapering as of today and worried that bulk may be a factor to consider with a lower 'fat burning' work load. My taper this week includes less hours and slight increase in intensity. This will surely have an effect. It got me thinking though - if you are what you eat....what is everyone eating in the lead up to IMOZ? Extra protein now and then carb focus next week? Vice versa? Don't worry about nutrition until the night before? Personally I'm planning on the following: This week - High protein - high fibre - low starch - low 'gas-producing foods' Next week - high carb - low/no fibre - low starch - low 'gas-producing foods' This is by no means based on any research or hard science - just my gut feeling (pun intended). Also based on how I know I handle certain food types with endurance sessions. Anyone have any good recipe ideas for the above two weeks?
  9. So with Ironman Western Australia, New Zealand, Melbourne and soon Port out of the way, there will be about 100+ spots currently taken by the best athletes in the country. With the extra 40 spots being offered at Cairns, surely this is the place to be this year if you are after a trip to Hawaii no? Even the time of year is favourable as it tends to be "off season" for a lot of the Australiasian athletes having a bit of down time... For the NZ guys looking at their options now, I'd say it is a no brainer that you have to be in Cairns and give it a good shot. Thoughts?
  10. Hi everyone, i'll be doing my first triathlon at frankston on the w/e, i'm really nervous, does anyone have any last minute training tips, just to give me that edge over the others in my age group?
  11. Up for sale is my very lightly used set of powertap training wheels. Wheels are: Rear: Cycleops SL+ 32h rear powertap hub laced with comp spokes to a dt rr4** rim, black spokes and rim front: cycleops front hub (has cool carbon cutouts and matches the rear.....mmmmmm symmetry) 32h laced to a mavic open pro rim 32h, black spokes and rim. Wheels have done at most 1000km. Selling them as i don't really like using power (call me not a triathlete), and i owe money to the man. Wheels will come with pair of very good condition Schwalbe ultremo DD tyres and a Dura-Ace 12-23 Cassette, (or a campag freehub body with no cassette if you are awesome and like campag). Wheels are true and round and have been owned by a bike mechanic (a proper one, not a "i work on my own bikes and therefore i am a mechanic" mechanic). Looking for around $1100 ONO. (including post) BUY THEM.
  12. Great video of the Keynote plus Q&A by Andrew Messick (CEO of World Triathlon Corp) at the Triathlon America Conference. He talks about the acquisition of USM events, the future of Ironman and their other products, plus some hints into the future of the sport and much more. Great video! Check it out:

  14. Hi, the athlete guide for Melbourne has been posted online, for those interested! Www.ironmanmelbourne.com
  15. So... I haven't had the chance to get down to the pool and strap on the latex for the efficiency test. And I'm too lazy this month for another crack at the 100km TT. But I'm man enough to tackle the ultimate AP challenge. Yeah, you know it bitches. I got home from work and there's 3 smiling faces, 6 completed loads of washing, and 1 remaining pill. Expect ultimate performance by the morning, I say.
  16. Hey guys, Here's a great interview with Jeff Symonds, a 25 year old Canadian who recently finished 3rd at the Ironman 70.3 World Champs in Vegas 2 weeks ago. This is an astounding result, especially considering Jeff has only been training for Triathlons for 4 years and was a huge underdog in that race. In this interview, Jeff shares some of his success secrets and strategies which you can apply to your own training. http://www.thefeelgoodlifestyle.com/half-ironman-world-championship-medalist-reveals-success-secrets.html
  17. Hi guys, lately - probably thanks to the advent of the Melbourne Ironman - I have been considering doing an Ironman. Obviously I'd do a half first, or maybe even a shorter distance before that. Completing an IM in <12hrs has been a goal of mine for several years, I just never thought I was fit enough. This leads me to my real question: how "fit" should you realistically be before attempting to complete the 20week training programmes? I've run 2 marathons and am planning on a third soon, but 4:30hrs is a far cry from 12hrs. I know my weaknesses etc but I'd just like a ball park, how fit were you guys before you considered doing an IM?
