Curious how you don't read many posts saying: good solid prep- totally injury free as I've been doing my core exercises.  Nutrition nailed in training - Time to roll the dice and rock ! 😂

For someone that was totally underdone and overweight, I was pleased with my efforts on the day. Good swim (in @ 42% the field); good bike - (in @ 54% of the field) and as usual, slow as anything on t

Correct - non wetsuit swim. 32C when I left about 2pm today. 

Had a good chat with Delly. Great to see he is looking a lot better than a little while ago. 

Thanks Roxii for the hat. Would be a good sponsor the old Trannies. Lol

As for sweaty Rog, I think everyone will be like that.

Alright tomorrow the day.  Not in the shape I wanted but confident I can finish strong.  The harder the run gets the better.  It'll slow everyone down but it's my goal to slow down the least.  

 

Good luck everyone who's having a crack tomorrow, looking forward to a beer or two at the finish line.

4th, well done mate, looks like you had a solid run!

Thanks mate.  Thought if I executed well I could grab a podium but obviously not back at that level yet.  I finished the last 5k strong on the run but I've got a lot of work to do on my bike.

 

Surprisingly wasn't too hot out there.  Once again I enjoyed the race.

 

Well done to everyone else who raced.  Keen to hear the other reports.

Women 

1. Hauschildt (awesome) 

2 Sheedy Ryan

3 Watkinson

Hopefully Garf can get on here and give his thoughts on the women’s race as he was riding the escort bike for 2nd female today. 

Said it was the final turnaround where Mel dropped the hammer and that was that. 

Missed the female finish as I was getting some relief from the heat then Mel stormed home before I could get back to the finish line. 

Rugby League legend Mick Ennis finished with a huge grin on his face finishing not only his first 70.3 but his first triathlon in 4.46  pretty respectable for a solid lump of a lad.

Dan Wilson is going too well to retire.

I know it’s crazy on the back of that performance. I think as with a few of the pros it’s probably not really performance that dictates when they retire it’s more about making a living. 

Also good to see Mel get an emotional win, probably a confidence boosting performance after a pretty crook year.

He's about to start a PhD in clinical psychology - doesn't leave many hours in the day for training

It was a bit warm out there by the middle of the day :-)

Good to see you Roxii!

The female pros...definitely a runner's race.

Lauren Brandon started the run with ~90 sec lead. That was wiped out by the first aid station at ~2km. Hauschildt, then Watkinson, and a short time later Sheedy-Ryan came past. Then it became two as Sheedy-ryan set about catching Hauschildt. From about 10km to 16km they ran together. Hauschildt picked up the pace enough to create a 12 sec gap at the last turnaround, and then continued to extend that out to about 1 min approaching the finish. Around 1:20 for the 21km for both...

Is this you RBR?

I might even do a race report - the 1st since 2002.

Pro Max Neumann - DQ

why??

I think I heard he cam into T2 off the pack after a visit to the sin bin, so it may be something more to that.

OR

In T2 he did (discreetly) drop his tri suit and put on run shorts WITH JOCKS.  For my money that worthy of a DQ.

Good to see a great turn out for the race on the weekend!

Unfortunately for me it was probably one race too many for the year and was running on fumes all day but happy to get across the line and spend the next week full of a going away, a 21st and a music festival... might be harder than the race!

Swim went well, bike went well, had no legs in the run as expected. Set out of T2 with Mick Ennis, but that lasted about 1k. 

Forgot my garmin and HRM so was doing all on feel. I once forgot my cycling shoes a few years back!

Time to regroup, pick some races for next year. Decided to not put the cash down until im ready to commit 100% to training and diet. 

Also need a new bike!
