  1. Was the extra length due to having to bypass the charred remains of the Goose?
  2. That is the plan, try to get consistent running in and build a solid long term base. We that was the case until this morning when 2 minutes into my run a mistimed stride on a footpath crossover and bam, calf pinged....
  3. Appreciate the advice. Tends to align with what I thought, do a little as often as possible. Will focus on running as often as possible seeing that this is my weakest discipline, and most disliked. @Fitness Buddyagree on the strength building. Already feeling the old man syndrome kicking in with the additional running I am doing.
  4. Please excuse the long winded post but I am hoping to get some advice from the community about ‘off season’ training. For a little context I am a 43 year old reformed fatty who only started triathlon a little over 3 years ago, recently completed my second 70.3 in a time of 6:01. I have absolutely no illusion that I will be qualifying for anything or being at the front of the field, however I do want to improve. Based on the fact that I will not be front of pack I cannot see the merit in the cost of coaching combined with the fact that both my wife and I work full time and have 3 sc
  5. I woke up this morning and first thought was, can't be bothered going for a run. Thought about Chris and said to myself, if he is doing what he is today then i can get my lazy ar$e out of bed for a run. Amazing effort from him and his crew.

    Could be an interesting time for them then, seeing I have received a confirmation email of the order, stating that my order will be dispatched as soon as possible, and the money has been deducted from my credit card. But the order status on their website is listed as 'not yet processed'. Guess the outcome will be based on their interpretation of 'processed'.

    Put your order in Peter and with the money you save throw that at Bitcoin, you haven't missed out you are just late to the party.

    Based on that I would fully expect we wont be getting our Neo any time soon.

    I would think that you would have a case for a refund if they did, as we have an email stating the confirmation of the order at $238.58.

    Well the transaction has occurred on my credit card so where does that sit in the scheme of a transaction????

    Just put my order in to, but it does say status: Not yet Processed, so I guess there is their out. Wait and see.
  13. In my highly uneducated and rookie opinion the first question in the above comment hits the nail on the head, what do you want out of triathlon. Are you after Front of Pack results with World Championship qualifications or are you happy to compete and provide an example to your children of what you can achieve in life in the hope that they may follow in your footsteps to compete as well, which will lead to greater time spent together. I have three children (5, 9 & 13) and fully understand my place in the triathlon world. I have no aspirations for World Champ qualifications and am
  14. Ok, being a newbie to the sport it's good to know these things. Agree on the volunteer comment, however is the issue lack of volunteers or is it that the event isn't making the organisers enough money? I imagine the issue with volunteers in Busso would be seeing it is 2 hours from Perth and then paying for accommodation on top of traveling to help out would be a deterrent to many.
