  1. Hey everyone My wife and friends are raising funds for Tour de Cure 2020. They have an Ironman and 70.3 spot for Port Macquarie up for auction. If you are keen please let me know your bid and I’ll pass it on to the team. All funds go to the charity. Late notice. Bids required by the end of the weekend. Cheers 2020 AUSTRALIAN IRONMAN & IRONMAN 70.3 ENTRIES ON AUCTION. A FUNDRAISER FOR THE 2020 TOUR DE CURE BIKE RIDE FROM NEWCASTLE TO NOOSA. Ironman have kindly donated 1 spot into each race in Port Macquarie on May 3, 2020. The spots MUST be used
  2. Mrs Shuffla was swim course director. Was out at 9pm the night before triple checking and adjusting the swim course. Measured with Garmin on board a surf club IRB. Was very close to correct distance from strava reports I’ve seen. High tide was at 8:30am so it shouldn’t have been much help maybe a bit of help at the start with a bit of tidal inflow, and then mostly still conditions for the swim home. I think the rolling start creates its own current for middle pack swimmers.

    $7 puffer vest? No thanks.
  4. Sorry, my post wasn’t directed at you Emski. I agree with your approach - have a family and then focus on sport later. I love having my kids involved with my events.
  5. If you are making family planning decisions around Ironman or KQ then that is a bit sad.
  6. 43km Run. Crescent Head to Port Macquarie Lighthouse. Just under 5 hours Something I’ve always wanted to do. Pretty sure I won’t do it again, certainly not on a hot day.
  7. Similar to rory-dognz. 10-12 hours for the 12-14 week prep. 4 IMs self coached 10:48-11:21. Plus 1 IM as a guide probably averaged 8 hours a week and we went 13:15. Just double checked my last IM in 2014 I did 174 hours from 1 Jan to 30 April. That’s 10.2 hours a week and I did my PB of 10:48 The missus does about 14-20 hours a week. 10 IMs between 9:45-11:30ish.
  8. Adult leukaemia is different to childhood leukaemia. Childhood leukaemia is curable (thankfully) but adult leukaemia is managed through ongoing treatment ie daily pills. You can sit around waiting for it to “get you” or get on with enjoying life in whatever way gives you satisfaction.

    Well done Flanman. Mrs Shuffla is half way home on the drive back to Port. Said she really enjoyed the ride.
  10. Mini yo-yo the past two weeks. Back down below 78kg at 77.7kg now. I was shooting for 75kg by the end of Feb, but will keep focussed on it and see what March brings with same diet and an increase in training
  11. UTA? Yeah they have a great wait list/transfer arrangement. I picked up a below cost entry late in the piece a few years back. And I think the transfer fee was only $30 then.
  12. Mate, you probably got off the bike close to Mrs Shuffla in her debut IM. She was 1 IV bag down by the time you finished 😂 She is still upset at me that I suggested she push for the age group course record when she was about 30km into the run. Ended with a 10.01 and missed the record by 2 minutes. Was lucky to finish at all. Creaking bike all week and we couldn’t figure it out. Safely finished the race and when we collected the bike at the end of the race the seat post snapped off as soon as I picked up the bike.
  13. Yeah pretty sure I was at 90,000m before I got it. On the plus side I well and truely crossed Italy 😂
  14. 77.7kg this morning. Chipping away each week which has been encouraging. At (or just below) my 2014 IM weight. Still 4-5kg off my ideal weight.
