I am pleased to announce some great news, PhysioHealth have confirmed their ongoing support to continue in a relationship with NTC.

They have a special offer for all of us. They have a special triathlete screening assessment which is normally $150, till the end of April it will be only $100. For those with private health insurance, you should be able to claim and make it cheaper again. The assessment takes 1 hour, specifically targets all three disciplines and the athlete gets the test, a detailed summary and some individual exercises taught and sent via video in an email.

The level of financial support PhysioHealth will then provide the club ongoing will depend on the numbers we get along in the next month. So please take them up on this great offer. It’s a great opportunity to have a comprehensive assessment to find your strengths, weaknesses and limitations within all three disciplines. It’s a great way to get some information that will either explain ongoing injury problems or even better prevent them happening. It’s also a really good way to support a business that supports us and our club.

They have a practice at Mt Waverley and Kew that you can book in at, when you make a booking please be sure to mention Nuna Tri Club to get the discount and to ensure it registers as an NTC customer in their system. For Mt Waverley call 9802 7444 and for Kew call 9853 2224.

If you could also please make a comment on this post or just PM me to let me know you have booked in for an assessment so I can keep track of the numbers.

In our house, Bron and I have a saying “Do what you can, when you can ”. Life’s busy enough without training for an Ironman! And let’s be honest, I should have been doing this 15-20 years ago when I was single and had the time to train - not now at the age of 40 something with bigger priorities/responsibilities, a family and a full time job!

Scott's recent IMNZ had a popular following from so many Nuna members. This is a great read....

Not many of you know me. My name is Mel and I’m a fairly new member of your club & until recently l have managed to fly under the radar!

On the 11th of November 2017 l completed my 7th Ironman from 7 starts in just over 3.5 years on the beautiful Malaysian island of Langkawi with my friend & your Nunawading president Angelo Bonacci.

This is my adventure!

Navec writes, "What can I say about Busso, it was hot, so hot. Well just race day anyway. It was a great crew who went over to WA including Regine, Goose, Bags, Stuart White, the Stricklands, Laura, Debbie and Sue. There was a mix of those doing the Ironman and Half Ironman, spoiler alert everyone finished, go Nuna!"

Read on to discover just how incredible these race conditions were and how Navec's personal journey was extremely testing....an event that no one will ever forget.

Gavin has been a club member for well over 10 years. You may have seen his face recently at events. He lives in Bendigo so you won't see him at club training, but here is some info for your interest so you can identify the mystery member.

For those who haven’t heard of Xterra, it’s a brand of triathlon that has events all over the world and is an “off road” based event. Generally the events are a 1500m swim, a 30km mountain bike ride and a 10km trail run. You have to qualify to do the world champs by competing in one of the events around the world. Winning your age group will get you a spot. The World Champs are run in Maui every year with over 800 athletes from over 50 countries represented. Peter and Celine Hepworth, and Andrew Noordhoff represented Australia and this is Peter's story.

So you’ve decided to buy a Power Meter, or perhaps you already have one and you don’t know how to use it? I’ve found they are a great training tool to enable you to plan and execute training sessions as well as possible. They are an even better racing tool, especially for long course racing. Read both parts of the following article for Aidan's training and racing advice.

I was fortunate enough to qualify for this event at Ironman 70.3 Ballarat last December. There was no hesitation to accept my spot and register as 70.3 worlds was number two on my bucket list, obviously Kona is number one. With 9 months to prepare, a PB at Ballarat and good base to build on from several years of triathlon, I was extremely confident for a good showing at Chattanooga. However, things started to unravel in April when I sustained a sore back. I then ran the Puffing Billy race with that niggle and in hindsight that was a big mistake. My back niggle that day developed into a much more serious back injury that would ruin my lead up and still cause problems today.

Last year in Yarrawonga I supported Talia for her race and this was also the first time I had been to a triathlon event. It was such a cold and windy day that I thought to myself “this is not for me, riding the bike looks fun, but I’ll freeze to death in the water before I even reach my bike”.

Martin has burst on to the triathlon scene with very competitive results in his AG. He recently clocked a time of 4:36 for the Shepparton 70.3 which is an awesome time for anyone, let alone someone so new to the sport!

After doing my first season of triathlon in 16/17, starting with the GIT program for Race 1 and finishing with the Sprint at Challenge Melbourne (what a wonderful morning that was), I set my sights on completing my first 70.3 at Challenge Shepparton.

Cup weekend, the time of year when it’s all about getting dressed up in a cold Melbourne and trying to back a winner, but not for me. Cup weekend is Noosa weekend and it is one of the best weekends of the year. This is meant to be a race report on the triathlon however I feel that speaking only of the Tri is missing the point of the entire weekend. This is the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival and festival is exactly how it feels.

The bike leg of triathlon is impacted most by technology. Back in the early to mid-1980s, triathlons were raced on steel and alloy road bikes, loose fitting singlets, standard wheels, and a lot has changed!

Do you hate traffic lights? Do you hate cars endlessly crowding you out? Do you want to improve your cycling and consequently your running off the bike? Do you want to ride without exhaust fumes in a beautiful tree environment?
Well if the answer is yes to any of the above questions then the Nuna Hilly Rides are for you!

We are becoming quite nostalgic lately, especially when reflecting upon how much triathlon has changed over the past decades, and how strong our club still stands. So many people volunteering their time, for the passion of the club and the sport. With a new GIT program starting next month, it's timely to look back on where it all started.

The Daddy put his nutrition needs to the test recently when competing in the 2017 Sydney Oxfam 100km event. The toughest Oxfam in Australia, with 3000m of climbing. His team of 4, comprising of life Nuna Tri club member Steve Vaughan, and past Nuna Tri Club members Alistair Lang and Rowan Ware, came first across the line in 18hours. The article below describes his recent personal thoughts about race nutrition.....

Once upon a time, a couple of triathletes decided to head to Canada on family holidays. The convenience of fitting in not just one but two triathlons was a small detail. The plan began before they even raced the 2016 Cross Tri World Champs at Crackenback. The 2017 Cross Tri World Champs would take place in Penticton, Canada.
