  1. It won’t work for a heap of reasons, it’s been looked at and the only way it would work would be a few days apart. It’s a 17hr race with staff working a 24 plus hour day, basically the whole shit show would be back to back race days (maybe 4hrs apart) which isn’t possible.
  2. Coaching people properly takes time, you’ve gotta stay on top of their load over the previous month/months, have a plan for the next months specifics and be in constant contact with athletes if you want them to progress, based on my time spent I’ll be 2hrs a week per athlete, conservatively which includes phone/emails/sms/programming If you work that out on an hourly rate then according to most my time is worth $25 per hr, how many of you earn that much per hr? I’m sure neally everyone is north of that figure. It’s a hard avenue to earn a living unless you’re complimenting the pers

    It works a treat............ as long as you’re happy doing lumpy farts for the last hour or so!

    Ironman Frankfurt

    I can’t help but wonder what Sarah True’s nutrition strategy was for the day compared to Kona, both hot races however if she was “forced” to use Gatorade endurance in Hawaii (due to lack of special needs) then she would have been getting extra calories (mostly sugar) from her hydration instead of using her sponsors product which has zero calories in it. Drinking so much fluid with no calories in it is an equation I have never worked out as you’ve got to add your calories in on top of all the fluid, I have tried and ended up in a similar state. Roxxi said give her a Gatorade show
  5. How I approached the race- first time I have been confident in ripping into the port course and seeing what happens, first time I knew I could be at the pointy end of the overall age group race. Raceday Swim- my form seemed good leading into the day but you never know how you’ll go Raceday, 2018 I had the 18th overall quickest swim so it was the first time I convinced myself to be as early in the water as possible, got in about 4th, figured there would be a few outliers who would be off the front but as the swim went along I had the kayak just in front the whole time, figured ther
  6. I just copied it into the race report section, I’ll get around to writing something about the race on the weekend at some point and post it also

    Kona 2018

    KONA 2018 The qualifying process:- It was a character building process, however looking back I was stoked to qualify for my first Hawaii at Ironman Australia and have so many people around to share the experience with, the amount of texts, calls and “well done mate stoked for you” type correspondence was very warming. Equally it added to the self-induced pressure that I really wanted to perform admirably come October. Training block:- My training was consistent, I changed little aspects of my build from Port Ironman and went about the first couple of months work by k

  9. I raced last year, it will be @nukedfirst time this year. Ill post my long winded race report from last years Kona race later today, how the Port went for myself and what our basic weekly structure has been since New Year’s Day.
  10. I haven’t done that double but have done port into Hawaii 70.3 the last two years (4weeks apart) if you make the right decisions between the two you’ll be surprised, don’t panic train, don’t do too much volume, do next to no intensity, up the swim percentage and drop the run percentage. The hardest part for me is staying on the straight and narrow with eating post Ironman, it’s so easy to start eating junk, throwing beers in every other night etc.
  11. Wear a swimskin for sure, it allows you to wear whatever you want on the bike (slightly loose top if that floats your boat) and you won’t have to worry about it swallowing water during the swim, if you wear a tri suit you can roll it down or if a two piece you can put it in your t1 bag. Other thing to take in to account is that often there can be stingers in the water there, if you have a sleeved swimskin on you’ll be less likely to get them down your suit. You’ve got a fair while to find a secondhand one, just keep an eye out and you’ll get one for $100 odd dollars and I’m sure i

    I won’t answer for Ryan but I guess it it similar to a lot of people who have a deep deep knowledge of their passion, although they would love to be able to apply it daily and help people better themselves in that field they also have financial commitments that will eventually win out and making a decent wage for your family wins out.
  13. And he hasn’t retired yet, my point is you can eat truckloads of calories and it will burn while you’re training but if you keep your shitty habits once you stop 6hr rides and 3hr runs you’ll be fast visiting the mr big section at Kmart !
