Each one was nice. The raspberry beer was a bit unusual. I don’t think I would buy a six pack of it though.

Sub 11 hr @ Port will do me as far as goals go.

Other than that, keep the training consistent, not let work get in the way and enjoy any spare time with the family!

Same as 2017 - train lots, race lots and have a good time doing both 🏊‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️🏃‍♀️💪

dont drink so that's not an issue,

eat pretty well so no change required there

family life relatively balanced - not bad with 2 teenagers in the house 😄

Might take up knitting again. Maybe.

Goals for this year:-

Be more consistent in training; get to a respectable weight; sleep more; learn more; be more positive and at peace with life; stay relatively injury free; complete another Tour de Cure ride; complete a couple of TRIs including have a crack at Port Half and break my HIM PB from 2000.

My two most important goals this year - 1) get the missus into a healthier lifestyle and positive frame of mind; 2) try and make this the last FULL year that I have to work.

Personal goals:

Weight down to 80kg and maintain it to the end of the year - booked in for the 3 month detox that did it last time later this month (might be worth a thread on the experience of this one)

10 more subjects done at uni and pull my GPA back over the 3.0 mark.  If I achieve this will be on track for graduation in early 2020 (and straight into MBA)

Show more gratitude

Get 40 fruit bearing trees in at home and be producing at least 30% of the families food at home

Purchase of a 1200GS to get back out on motorised 2 wheels again

Exercise:

Do one tri

50km trail run (eyeing off Wilson's prom run in June but may be a bit early), 4,000kms is my milage goal for the year

Get back on the bike, 2,500kms on the open road and do the 120km bass coast ride in November

200kms of swimming

I still think we should be looking at putting some Trannies teams together for the multiple leg events like the Tripple Tri in Canberra (9 legs and up to nine in a team - 3 Swim, 3 MTB's, 3 Runs) and the Multisport Classic at Jindabyne (12 legs and up to twelve in a team - 3 Swims, 3 MTB's, 3 Kayak, 3 Runs).  The legs are all different distances so there's something for everyone, especially the ones who can't run any more, and we can double up on a few legs if we are short on team members.  These are both great team events and the results don't really matter it's just a great excuse for a fun day out.

Yep, I might add that as one of my goals as well.  It may be a bit more than 2kg though so we'll see.

Hmm...
Which weekend was that again? I might be up for a leg or two. (Won't be fast...)

 

As for me, this year.

#1 - Try not to fall off the bike. (I still have bruising from November, and issues from January)

#2 - Sub6 @Geelong70.3

#3 - Sub14 @IMNZ (Well, start it, then complete it, but we did say 'Goals')

#4 - Finish LCW Jervis Bay.

#5 - End the year lighter that I started it...

Just set soft targets with plenty of excuses.  

There is more to life than Triathlon. I'm really enjoying crit racing & hanging around the local bunch rides. Coffee after a ride is a lot more enjoyable than a brick session.

Personal/Work/Home

- Drink less (while it hasn't become a problem, I think I'm drinking too much)

- Do more with my son (this year has been good, next year will be better)

- Now that the kids are older, do more things with just my wife

- Keep things interesting at work. Develop the new staff.

- Build the Rainforest Grotto, and get the Heliconia gardens in. Reduce the lawn to less than 1/2 acre

 

Training

- Swim 750km this year

- Sub 14min for 1km (suck them apples Andrew :))

- 100 x 100 on 100

- 20km swim

Are you serous about that 100 x 100 on 1:00?!

My goals for 2018

Triathlon:

My main goal is to qualify for OD world's. 

I'd like to improve my 10km run time to less than an average of 4:30 pace but I'd be happy with a 4:35.I did a 4:36 at Noosa in 2015. I'm getting older but I'd like to think I could do that again. 

I'd like to learn how to pace my runs so I don't fade in the second half. ATM it seems if I start slow I just get slower. If I start fast I get slower but not as slow as when I start slow.  ????

Run my 5km Park run in under 4:20/km.

I'd like to be able to swim with jellyfish and bluebottles without having a near anxiety attack. 

I'd like to do the 100 x 100m swim at Christmas time. 

To remain uninjured. 

To do atleast 1 strength session every week (except race weeks).

Family:

I'd like to remember to call my mum more often. 

Work:

To work smarter not harder. To be more productive and only do what's necessary. Often I'll spend so much time on a task only to find I could've done it a much easier way.

To find a way to meet the needs, mentally and academically, of all of my students, better than what I did this year.

To get to know all of my kids, well, by the end of term 1. Know their interests, family life, parents names, occupations, etc. 

My dreams for 2018:

My hubby will give up the ciggies and take up a sport or some form of exercise.

My girls will podium at Nationals Skipping Champs in Camera in June. 

 

I think that's it. Considering I didn't think I had any goals. I think I've done well. 😉

If you are going to do 45min for 10km off the bike, you should be aiming for close to 20min for a parkrun.

That's what I would have thought!

^^^What they said.  Our times are very similar Cranky - a 20min flat parkrun is a 45min 10K triathlon run

And you can still get faster - I've got a few years on you and I'm still getting faster...

And maybe you should be reconsidering 1hr45min long slow runs if you're trying to get faster for OD.

This is it.

To time consuming with a young family, its almost selfish!

And I feel like the sport is turning towards who has the latest bike, the most expensive equipment, the most followers/likes. Not healthy for future generations in the sport! 

And It's just farkin to expensive.
