Found 17 results

  1. OK How did we all go this year. Yes yes it's not over yet but ffs close enough for me. Swim - 396.98km Bike - 6979km Run - 1263km Happy with that. Although my small ocd has me wanting to round off those figures 🤣🤣👍
  2. Good morning to all the triathlete or future ones :). My name is Marco, I am new to the forum turning 47 in few months and I have a dream, finishing 5 Ironman in 5 continents by the age of 50. I do consider myself as an average normal guy but with a huge passion for triathlon. I will attend my first Ironman next year in Italy (Ironman Emilia-Romagna), anybody did it or is planning to do it? Other reason of this thread is to connect with triathlete that share the same passion and maybe have the chance to train with some of them. I am living in Krakow (Poland), so if you are in the area please d

    Shire Swim

    I see Sally Fitzgibbons has started a foundation to encourage kids to get active. There's an ocean swim for November 5 at Cronulla (1k or 2k) supporting it . details here for anyone who might be interested. Apparently there will be some top surfers competing and they have Elite, Open, Age Group and BOP categories - no word yet on a Tranny wave but as Roxii's the king of the Shire we can expect an announcement shortly. If they get good conditions it could be a cracker of a day - it's my favourite swim on a nice day. Edit to add that entries for another Ocean swim - the Sydney Skinny - go o
  4. A couple of posts recently got me to thinking about consistency across the 3 main components of a triathlon. It's no good being the fastest swimmer & rider, if you run 10km in 70 minutes, and likewise a fast swimmer and runner if you ride like my grandmother. I was always happy that my 3 legs were fairly consistent. I'm probably a little slow on the bike compared to the other 2, but don't really have a shocker in any. An example would be my last HIM. AG placings were 14th swim, 10th bike, 5th run. I'm happy the swim, as I probably averaged 2 swims a week for 3 months, and nothing for years

    About to spend a week in HB and wanting the good oil on where to run and swim (trying to do both every day) and also where to get coffee etc, I have found the aquatic centre and looks good. What is the OWS like at moment? I am staying on Esplanade pretty central I believe. Cheers

  9. Australian Quadrathlon Championships 3km Swim, 20km Run, 80km Bike, 26km Paddle. (Murray Quad - Yarrawonga to Tocumwal) Is anyone else silly enough to be doing this event, or am I the only one??? Just wondering what the course is like... Is the swim likely to be over 14 degrees? Is the run course likely to be muddy? Is the bike road surface good? Is there a rescue squad in that area? Not that it really matters, I'll be flat out even getting to the start line!
  10. I run/ride most days from the wilds of Lane Cove into the city, and am thinking of doing some swim training on the way to work. The three obvious options without too much of a detour are Lane Cove Olympic/Bluefit, North Sydney Olympic, and Boy Charlton. I've checked out the websites, prices etc, but curious to hear others' experiences at the facilities, quieter days/times to go etc. Work and life in general make getting to classes/squads too hard most weeks, so just looking to churn out a few laps 1-2 a week without being swamped by kids or serious insects. Not really a gym bunny, and would ra
  11. Hey guys, I'm interested in your thoughts re: swim tapering for Ironman. As a bit of background, I've been averaging 16-18km per week in the last 8 weeks or so, mostly over 4 sessions per week. This week I have done one 90mins / 5km session on Monday and am starting to taper it down so at the moment here's the plan: Wed (today): ~70min / 4km pool (threshold + strength mix) Fri: ~60min / 4km open water Sun: ~45-60min / 3-4km open water I'm not sure about what to do next week (race week). I've been enjoying getting in the water every second day so am keen to do the same but
  12. Ill be staying at hotel in South Yarra (Como) for a few days over the weekend and keen to get a couple of swims in. Are there any 50m pools close by or within reasonable bus/tram distance? Found a wattbike studio to try in Melb - so that will be my Sat am ride.
  13. I am doing my first sprint tri this Sunday at Kingscliff.My wave leaves at 7.25 with high tide being 8.26. Does anyone have any tips on swimming into the tide?
  14. Any of our expat Trannies got experience of tri clubs and/or places to train in Jakarta? Google isn't returning many valuable hits. I'll be working there for the next 4 weeks, in the Kemang, Blok M suburbs. I need to make sure my apparently already unworthy state (read qualifying for Vegas thread) doesn't deteriorate too much. : )

  16. I just joined a master swimming club a couple of weeks ago and they've had their "special" end of year session today. I thought I'd turn up and see how much of it I could get done. Started with the medium lane up to set 5, then the wheels started to fall off but still managed to hang on and called it a day after set #7 (7km), the furthest I have ever swam in one go. We all started at the same time, the guys on the fast lane were doing butterfly form on set #7 and were over 1km ahead of us Goal for next year is to get the whole set done and try to hang on with the fast guys. Wh
  17. Hi All, Just seeking some advice on swim sets that will help me pick up some speed. I can comfortably swim 2km in the pool in around 42min or swim the 1km in around 21-23min. Fitness wise, i complete the distances comfortably but what i want to do is swim them faster. Does anybody have any swim sets to offer up that is focused on increasing speed ? All advice appreciated.
