Not bad for a guy who spends 4 weeks out of 6 in a place with no swimming pool, a shitty exercise bike (so the km's do not count) and arctic running conditions for 6 months of the year.

I only had one wiggle order this year, on 28 Dec, for $110. 

Down from 4 orders last year.

Swim: 521k - 160 hrs.
Ride: 1265k - 50hrs
Run: 350k - 33 hrs

Aiming to increase the swim by 10% this year, quadruple the bike, & who knows about the running - having knee issues for the first time since the 90's.

So the big question is:

How does these distances equate to races times. I would think anyone doing big distances on the bike - then you must be doing pretty quick race times!

how does the above relate to your 70.3 or 140.6 results.

Bike distances have so many factors associated with and generally has nothing to do woth 70.3 or IM. 

Exploring new roads and new places is one of them.  Taking of certain climbs.  The joy of getting outside.  The mental health side of it, keeping your mind occupied via exercise.  

For me i ride once a week on the road, twice if public holiday and when i go out and i spend several hours doing it.  I have gone to places i would never drive to and places some have never heard of.

Swim: 260km (2018: 172km)
Ride: 11,977km (2018: 6,672km)
Run: 2,009km (2018: 1,573km)

Averaged 55 hours per month.

Improved across all OD and 70.3 races, and qualified for the first time for 70.3 world champs (Nice).

The bump in volume was intended for my third IM, which frustratingly never eventuated. Tore my hamstring a month out from Cairns, and got pneumonia a week before Busso. It would have been great to have seen what the volume would have achieved for IM but it wasn’t to be.

I’ll do Port full IM in 2020 but I can’t foresee another one after that. I like the 70.3 distance and so does the family.

I would smash an Ironman PB ride at the moment.  

I'm loving riding the bike at the moment. I like the ability to race every week, chase KOM, hang out with mates & exploring all the different bakerys around SA. 

Rohan Dennis & a heap of pros are all in town at the moment for the TDU. It's a great time to be out on the road. I did 90hrs on the bike last month. Considering the number of 40+ degree days we had and working full-time, I'm really happy with that.

He will be back after he races Port Mac. He's doing a "IvP" (sooking after a bad race & not posting)

Yes. That is currently the motivation. Although that ride nearly killed that. 
Road in best condition I have ever seen it. Just a boring as ride

Had a decent year going until the twins arrived. Training volume declined heaps until the Sunshine Coast race and then turned into casual rides and ParkRuns after that.

No commutes, yoga or gym sessions. All are either training sessions or at the very least active recovery (eg 30 minutes at 100W)

Both. 

He has 915 KOM & closing in on the 1000 at a rapid rate. 

Finished in the top 10 at 3 Peaks Challenge & went under 7:30. 

Also won almost every race in SA  this year.  

Not bad considering 2019 was his first full year back on the bike after a 20 year break.

PS - Just a hint Katz, if you're going to turn short then you may as well make it worthwhile!

Swim - 87.5km

Ride - 1,448km

Run - 1,246km

Almost all of this was done before the UTA 100 in May...   That's when the wheels well and truly fell off.

Hopefully I'll do more swimming & riding this year, but given I've only been able to do two x 2km runs in the past month or so then I'll be happy with any run K's that I can get done from now on.

96.85km elevation gain

595k running

4,386k riding

70k swimming

3 months combined injured meaning no exercise

nothing in the last 3 weeks due to smoke, not the best year.

OTOH - 2 blood donations, so that is nice.
