Hi Bill,

The sun made a brief appearance earlier this week but it's been cold, wind and rain here. In our northern states of Queensland and New South Wales they have had unseasonably warm weather around 30C (85F) for a few weeks now. There are many bush fires in regional areas.

I've been training very consistently and with increasing intensity the last 5 weeks. This will go on hold on Monday as we are going for a holiday in New Zealand for 3 weeks. When we return I'll have 7 weeks to race 1 for the season. I bought a season pass and got an "early bird" rate of 6 races for the price of 4. I also got a further 20% off as the group I train with are partners with the race organizers. I'm really looking forward to this tri season, it may be my last as I pursue other interests and go through my Bucket List.

I just started training again for the fall/winter. Never made it to a single race this summer. I am back at the beginning again. There's always next year!

Just continuing my “training” (swims & walks)....no biking other than some spinner time at gym to “warm” up for a lifting session. Very short swim this am....yardwork yesterday has left me with some lower back muscle spasms-lifted a heavy bag of soil and rotated ackwardly...knew it the second I did it. Walking like a pretzel today....taking it easy.

Rock there are always more races. Bill I’m sorry to here about the back, that is one thing I can say without a doubt that I know how you feel. I have been just doing my HIIT training and running here and there, which has got to kick way up for the Houston Marathon in January. Between work, family, and the start of deer season (archery) I’ve been really busy and not on the internet very much.

Added - I also don’t know why but when I’m not training for a Tri I just can’t make myself log the workouts here. The only thing I can think is that they are in my iwatch and therefore don’t need to be logged again. I don’t know!

I forgot to mention (a good chunk of the reason my summer plans got screwed up), my youngest finished the Pacific Crest Trail! 2650 miles from Mexico to Canada along the spines of the Sierra's and Cascades. Very worth taking the summer off to support him. By the last couple months he was walking a marathon distance in the mountains, everyday! Good stuff, now back to work for me.

Hi Turtles,

Great to see that there is lots of activity even though there is no racing.

It's just over a month to my first race which is a mini sprint consisting of 150 M swim (open water), 7 KM Ride & 1.2 KM run. A nice way to start the season. The swim can be a challenge in rough, choppy conditions. I'm using this race as a warm up for the rest of the season. My focus to date has been on building strength and increasing my running distances.

I need to shed some weight to fit into my wet suit and tri suit. Gained a few extra pounds while on holiday and recent family celebrations.

I've set some modest goals for this race and I'm on track to achieve them. If I make it to the starting line then I've had a win regardless of what happens on race day.

Hey Turtles, got signed up for a 5k fun run this Friday. I want to get an official time recorded to start building on. My pre-race goal is under 30 minutes. We shall see.

Enjoy the 5K! Local Arthritis Foundation sponsoring a local “Jingle Bell” run/walk this weekend; contemplating us doing this and take our 2 dogs along; I ran a number of these events in years past but haven’t participated since having my knees done. We usually walk the dogs 3+miles on Sundays so this event would fit right in...

Thanks guys! I would like to shave about 5 - 6 minutes off that time by next April. Swimming is still my weakness and plan to really work on that over the winter. Trying to build up to 500 continuous yards per session. I am up to 250 at this point with the rest of my workout being 100's/breaks.
