Discussion
We want the people who have done Hawaii to share some tips with those who haven’t. What are the things you would do different if you went to Kona again.

Coach’s Corner

Finishing off you season
    Have a clear date for the end of your season, avoid the temptation to keep dragging it out.
    Allow a minimum of 2 weeks off after your last race (try to completely get away from triathlon).
    Then follow unstructured (low volume) training for a few weeks and spend time planning you next season.
    Try to take as many weekends ‘off’ and spend time with family & friends.
    Important not too take too much zero time.
    Off season is the best  time to work on limiters rather than trying to find small gains in strengths.
    Great time to do some detailed technique analysis (videoing).

Questions and Answers

Mark and Jono gave us some information on why 70.3’s are still called Half Ironman in Australia.
Andy Gump asks us what we think a competent IM finish time is.
Pete asks if we should keep training if we are sick.

We also want to take away Jim Beuselinck’s age grouper award and give it to Mark Stenning. Mark came second to Jim in IMUK.

High 5 Keeping you swim cap on

1.  Get a hair cut if you have long hair. That was John’s hint for Bevan.

2.  Use a Silicone cap, the extra money is worth it. Plus make sure it has a grip around the bottom edge.

3.  Have dry hair when you put the cap on.

4.  Pull the cap right down so it covers the front of the forehead and the ears.

5.  Use a push start instead of diving in. This way the cap will stay on.

2.  Keep the leavers close to each when putting them under the tyre.

3.  Find the hole by pumping up the tube once you have got it out. Then check inside the wheel at the same place.

4.  Put the new valve in the wheel and then put a little bit of air in tube before putting the tyre back on.

5.  Be careful not to pinch the tube when using the leaver to put the tyre back on.
