  1. Yep - I think they are the options with the order of the disciplines not fixed for the 7 day or 3 day version, and no requirement for the distance to be covered in one go in those versions either. I think in each option the swim can be swapped out for a run. The ride doesn't have to be on Rouvy for any of the options. I don't think my fitness is there, but it is not too bad. I was training for Cairns in the hope that ACT would be given the greenlight for QLD at the eleventh hour.
  2. Are any Trannies anyone signing up for the 17hr option IM distance VR event over the Kona weekend? I'm swinging between signing up and not blowing up the chance of a real race before Xmas. I guess this will be a state by state thing, but I'm interested to hear whether others are doing it and how they are going to structure the day. Also, how it fits into their plans for the summer.

  3. I'm finding it a little difficult to fully commit at the moment. I rolled my Port entry to Cairns. I'm hoping it goes ahead. Around six weeks ago I listened to Andrew Messick interviewed on Fitter radio. During the interview he twice mentioned that he was looking forward to SC 70.3 and IM Cairns. He also signalled Taupo taking the 2022 70.3 Worlds as an option. There was no mention of Port. I came home from my run and told my partner that I might be connecting dots that aren't there, but I think IM is going to rationalise the racing in September, assuming all keeps trending well with Covid-19,

    AAA 2018

    Hi All - has anyone raced the AAA without a support crew? If you have, it would be great to hear how it worked out. For those that have done the event with a support crew, any thoughts on whether you think no support crew is OK or a bad way to go would be appreciated as well. Thanks Steve
  5. Thats a great pic. You're mostly right re not caring. She wishes I could finish in the daylight like the others but also wants glow sticks 🤷‍♂️. As you say, the hug is the main thing. If I give her a hug, share some icecream, and give her my full attention to hear all about her race day experience (not mine!!) she is stoked and goes to bed with a smile. A couple of months ago I was looking at a piece of my daughter's school work that was in her bag. In response to a question as to what her favourite part of her body is she wrote 'her feet, for running along the breakwall'. Thank-you
  6. My daughter is 7 and I’m still working out how to ‘get it right’. In that 7 years, I’ve added about an hour to my IM time. I’ve dropped the number of long rides I do – and they are generally an hour less in time than what I used to do. I think I’ve tripled the cost of going up to Port to try and make it as comfortable and enjoyable for my family as possible – especially race day. My training is done more at night than in the morning as my partner is not a morning person and I take the lead getting my daughter up and going in the mornings. I don’t train with groups as I can’t lock a time i
  7. Thanks again for all the suggestions. Sounds like I should start looking at a trip to Newcastle.
  8. Thanks for the suggestions! Newcastle could be good. Any tips for longer ride routes (or is Strava the best place to find that info?). I'm based in Canberra and we are really spoiled here. Great cycling and plenty of pools. It is still a bit cold at the moment, but I could live with that. The motivation for getting away rather than staying at home is to make sure I switch. I tend to just keep on rolling with work if I am at home.
  9. Hi All - I'm coming off a long period of being flat out at work and in life in general. I've been given the green light to take some time (up to a week) away solo next week and am trying to find a good location to train and relax. Ideally, somewhere in NSW/VIC with reasonable weather, safe roads for cycling and somewhere to swim. The coast would be good but safe cycling is the preference. So I'm open to the coast or inland. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks Steve
  10. Thanks guys. I might see how I feel by the end of the weekend.
  11. Hi All - Has anyone here done both Ironman Aus and Cairns in the same year? If you have doubled-up, how did you find Cairns (in terms of enjoyment and ability to push yourself relative to your performance / experience at Port Mac)? Steve

    Any info on the new course? Looks like the course previously put on facebook is not on the website.
