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.
