  1. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Seems a few are trying to qualify. Thought it might be a good idea to get an idea for whose trying to qualify, for which events and at what races etc. I'm interested to follow people's progress. I'm trying for standard distance and will be racing Robina Coffs and Mooloolaba.

  3. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Word is cranky has been saying she did all the work on the bike and Alison did nuthin
  4. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Well yeah I guess leg shaving was the missing key. My beard was still the best out there though.
  5. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Fair call. The bike I measured 38.5. With 15 turn around points I think you could go a bit faster on a 40k course like mooloolabah. Swim I can' comment on I don't measure but with a good draft the time isn't unreasonable for me and with the number of swimmers going round yesterday it created a nice current as I was always seeing bubbles which to me is a good sign you're getting a draft. My pb before yesterday was 2.14 I believe so a 1.58 with an * I'll claim as a pb of sorts.
  6. 50% off everything Dare2Tri

    Maybe people don't take the name dare to tri seriously.
  7. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yeah water was very warm. I was in wave 2. There isn't a lot of communication at the start to announce waves so you have to be on the ball. Pre uneventful swim 2 laps triangle. Pretty easy to navigate. Coming out of the water i heard some people yelling something about suits but I didn't stick around to ask questions and I got on with it. Ride was a pain in the ass. 15 180 deg turns. I struggle to put down the power some guys can out of a turn but found I was making the ground back on the straights. We had the moto with us for most of the ride which kept things fairer. It's a tight course and things get close. I came in with a good group who i found out at the turn on the run was the front of the ag race. My run suffered a bit I think due to under-hydrating on the bike. I took one bottle of water and might try 2 next time. It also might be learning to hurt a bit again as I've been used to getting off the bike and running "easy" for a few years now. Managed to get through the run and top 5 in age group and a solid pb. Stoked to get some good points and know I'm in the game for worlds qualifiers.
  8. Scheduling strength training

    I haven't read through all the comments here do apologies if it' already been covered. Currently working closely with my physio on some activation exercises. If I can get the muscles activating using a clinical Pilates approach then the swim bike and run will strengthen the appropriate muscles that aren' currently firing. Has made great differences and I've balanced my riding out from a 46/54 % imbalance on the bike to consistent 49/51% and even some 50/50 rides. I will be starting a session of clinical Pilates (group) session in the next week or so once a week. Looking forward to seeing the results improve.

    Swim skins are allowed in selection races. It' only the itu race where it' banned. We can all sleep easy now.
  10. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yeah can anyone confirm if it is correct? I would have thought they would have a specific section covering speed suits. Well done! Is that your first qual event? Great start if so! Thanks I also could have pushed harder on the run. I would have liked to go a lot faster than that on the run but I'm stoked with the overall result.
  11. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Howd you go? I've had a read of the itu rules and I can't see it clear cut in the rules but I haven't been through the whole thing yet.
  12. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    What's this speedsuit controversy?
  13. Willie goes down - again

    No good. Glad the cops watched the footage and listened to your side.
  14. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Chance of a morning thunderstorm makes things interesting.
  15. Running faster by running slower. Tips please

    I agree the awkward feeling is the fact you feel horrible running in that zone which requires work. It's uncomfortable which it shouldn't be cause you're moving so slowly compared how fast you think you need to run. Trained with plenty of guys who say they can't run slow. But they sure as hell do on raceday.
  16. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Wind won't affect me too much I'll be tucked I the middle of the biggest bunch I can find.
  17. My Instagram

    TC there is a lady in Brisbane with a similar following to corky. Has been through a number of groups due to constantly falling out. Was called out for drugs and fake followers and she was furious about both but it didn' take long looking at her followers to find a number of fake accounts. They all do it but the company's sponsoring need a better screening process. If it was me and I had a look and saw 1 fake follow I'd give that person nothing.
  18. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    I just had a peek. Yikes...i said I'll be happy if I get 1 point right.
  19. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    35 to 39 for worlds
  20. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    I'm not game to look at my age group. If I can jag too ten I will be absolutely stoked.
  21. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yeah Ashley ta adjust the results on their end when calculating points.
  22. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yeah I actually used to live about 2k from there so I'm pretty familiar with that stretch of road. I'm just not sure I've ever done 45 kph on them lok
  23. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Are all the straights downhill 😂😂 I'll need a bloody good wheel to sit on to hit that speed 😉
  24. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yeah fair enough. Just wasn' sure as the longest straight is 1.4k long. Should have been practicing my 180 deg turns
  25. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    6.03 start and I'll be racing with the age group I'm qualifying against (35 to 39) which is a bonus. Helmet choice for this course? Is a tt helmet a waste of time?
