Tier 3 is cheaper than Tier 2, if that helps?

we are quite use to driving big distances up here, so we will be driving to Perth again to avoid the major rip off which is Karratha to Perth flights.

Oh.  Substitute '2' for '4' then

Point being, you've saved money

Not entered yet because I'm a commitment-phobe, but I hope to be there for the full.

Too late. You may as well have entered, seeing you commented here!!

This thread is the equivalent of hot cross buns on boxing day.

Mmmmmmmm hot cross buns 🤪

No butter on my hot cross buns, I'm in training for Port 2019 don't you know!?

Accommodation booked, I think I've entered (better check that) and also break the news to my cardiologist, I lied. 2018 won't be my last IM.

Don't stress... butter is a "good fat"! 😂

There is a fair chance this will be the first time I've missed being at IMAUS since 1995

This is not ok

Could be a starter if I can’t shake this hip injury for NZ, might have to transfer!

Better start training ...next week

Training starts February 1st. You have plenty of time. Just keep rolling the arms and legs for the moment and then get cracking on Feb1st (12 week block - 1 week taper).

This is my plan - but nothing for the 2 weeks leading into February except skiing. bring it on... heading off on Feb 14 - the countdown begins.

Might be looking at this now as I’ve got a sportsman’s hernia and now cancelling my IM NZ plans. 👎

If anyone is keen to offload some family friendly reasonably priced accom let me know. 

(I realise the insanity of trying to find reasonably priced accom around IM time)

I stayed at Town Beach Motor Inn last year, it might be a bit squishy, but was ok price wise. 

I'm over at Riverside this year, the ferry is gonna be a bit of a pain, but it's free and my hosts feed me well :D

We stay here: http://www.lighthousebeachholidayvillage.com.au/rates.html 

Pretty basic but suits us perfectly and is right on the bike course!

Well I have finally put the money down, 70.3 entry in yesterday. Now to figure out how to run over 10km again. 😖

I just have to learn to run again...starting off this week with 1 min run 1 min walks....21 km seems so far away right now.

It'll come back all of a sudden. Have faith.
