I do not think that you are in a minority there  .........

Nice to hear from you  .........

Same to you!

I am currently too busy with my new challenge to land a slot for the Las Vegas 2013 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and further the 2014 Ironman Kona World Championship. First "pit stop" is Xiamen International Marathon next month. After that I will probably take part in a couple of 70.3 ironman competitions in Europe (still to decide where but UK and Spain are preferred options as of now) to get at top form to 13th August Yeppoon in Australia, where I have to run the race in just under 4 hours and 25 minutes if I want to have any chances to land a slot in my age group (45-49). That will mean swimming the 1.9 Kms in less than 30 mins, bike 90Kms around 2h30mins and run half marathon in less than 1h30mins.
I chose Australia because it's the land of the best triathletes and competition is enormous there, hence, you get to push yourself harder. Europe is OK, but the number of slots are less and the travelling time back and forth tires the body.
So, probably, yes, during the next year and a half, I might just not be as a frequent poster as I used to be, considering I need to spare 18 hours a week for training.
