  2. Those swim times quoted above - surely can’t be that consistent? Amazing effort. Go 🤠!

    That’s who I assumed we were taking about. I think though that @Tyno desire to stay committed may have come under question?

    This may be the first ever post saying it was easier back in the day 😂 I haven’t looked into it that far tbh. There are def more races now than there used to be so presume that means fewer slots per race as I don’t think the Kona field has increased hugely. From memory the fast times drop off pretty quickly. There was a comment earlier about how many sub 10 times there are not many. There have been improvements in technology both for training and the tools we get (wetsuits, bikes, runners) but the winning times haven’t come down drastically. I’m not commenting whether it’s eas

    Maybe a couch to Boston thread is needed to get some run focus?

    My amateur take on all of the above is there’s a correlation between the genetics you’re dealt and the follow up commitment required. Time per week and how many weeks you need to stay the course committed. Eg. Elite genetics- kq in 12 months with 10hrs/week. Sh1t genetics- kq in 48 months with 30hrs/week. Average genetics somewhere in between. No use moaning about someone doing it in 12hrs / week, not a natural runner, whatever else makes it a bit harder. We’re all dealt a hand and can decide what we want to do with it.
  7. Race report please @lawman when you can! This looks an amazing event and definitely one I’d love to do.

    It would take me 12 months minimum to be able to handle 15hrs a week consistently. I’m an av swimmer - 4 hours of swim squad each week would kill me. That’s 4 sessions in the hurt locker. Unless part of a squad that’s tri focused and tailored to your level / goals, I don’t see how a swim squad is really relevant to tri swimming?

    Worth the hype?

    Def worth it. Enjoy. They’re my go to on the roadie. It’s like sitting on a pillow.

    Geez that’s rough, think everyone would agree that’s a stellar time. They put themselves smack bang in the area of getting there and you can’t do much more than that.
  11. I’ve read that last part as not wanting to look like a tosser in IM kit yet trains shirtless 😂

    Yep agree. Definitely. Maybe a bit of luck with rolldown. I do still believe that most people could put themselves in the realm of kq time wise. Then depends on execution who shows up on the day.
  13. Course safety and accurate course shouldn’t even need to be mentioned but does. Interesting course could be good and entertainment in the hard bits. Mfd at port gets some tri club support there, but imagine if there was a commentator set up and someone playing music. Similar to the red bull aid stations but without the aid. Covid at the moment has screwed up the finishing experience. Atm it’s grab a piece of banana and continue on your way. Having a compare at the start finish line is great and something the ironman events do pretty well. Swag is hit and miss and after
