ONE STEP AHEAD: LCHF and thyroid. WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Your stroke rate for swimming - what you should be considering and how to determine where you sit. HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW - MELISSA HAUSCHILDT: A former Australian steeplechase champion turned triathlete Mel is 2 x Ironman 70.3 World Champion and ITU Long Distance World Champion. She has also won 20 x Half Ironman races and, after a recent move to the full distance, won Ironman Australia and most recently the Ironman Asia Pacific Champs in Melbourne. A dramatic stop to tend to painful blisters could not prevent her from securing the overall win and with it a place in October's World Champs in Hawaii. We talk to Mel about her journey into triathlon, her races to date and those blisters (ouch!).

5 MINUTE FOCUS: Looking to do another Iron Distance event after IMNZ? Don't want to wait another year before you take the challenge on again?

THE GEEK OUT: Stroke rate and swimming - a research study.
