Training goal - Consistency. Is everything, especially for the over 40s athlete. So ... aim to average 8km Swimming, 3.30hrs on the ergo bike and 25km running per week over the whole year (excluding the two weeks of active recovery after IM Cairns 70.3).

Run sub 25 minute park run by the end of summer

Swim sub 15min for 1km by end of January

Sub 1:17 Nowra Tri Sprint (21 January)

Sub 1:15 Husky sprint (18 Feb)

Sub 1:12 Farkurnell sprint (2 April)

Sub 2:40 Wollongong Olympic (March)

Sub 2:35 Port Stephens Tri (May)

Sub 6hrs - Cairns 70.3

Therafter reassess goals. Could be either a big swimming goal (Samoa Swim series, Rotto and Gibraltar channel) or stepping it back up to Ironman distance - Jervis Bay Long Course weekend, IMWA & Ironman Cairns 2019. ...

No x 8 goals. Reassessment time.

So ... take two:

Sub 25 Parkrun over winter

Sub 1:15hr sprint tri - probably aim for October Hills Tri

sub 2:35hr Olympic tri - little husky in November

sub 6hr Western Sydney 70.3.

Oh, I just realised my 2018 goal is to enter the 18/19 summer without being injured :crutch:

Last two years soccer has gotten the better of me.

This being my 50th year I'm finding a number of things to justify as goals

IM Aus tick

lining up a marathon, maybe a open water swim,

Next Sunday I start working on my main goal for 2018 - on October 13th I am going to be in Hawaii for my 19th go at the Ironman - I have traditionally swam OK and ran OK but lost places on the bike, even though I had often had the fastest bike in my age group in Australia.

This year I am going to go there in the best shape I can possibly be. I intend riding six days a week for the 16 week build. I'll be racing basically the same group of guys who have come up through the different age groups with me, I can't stop them doing what they're going to do. All I can do is go there in the best shape possible and go hard from the swim start to the run finish.

I can't set a time goal, conditions vary so much - I can't guarantee a position goal but I will be laying it on the line to be hard to beat 😎

Deadlift and Bench goals are on track to happen in the next 2 months.

Overhead press goal is looking dodgy, my weight is going up in proportion with my increase in lifting capacity over my head.
