  1. Both goofy. How about that
  2. 7 year tranny switch?
  3. Interesting one. I've had 2 different run coaches go with different definitions of this. One said imagine a rope attached to the top of your head, pulling you up. The other said to concentrate on hips being high. With a slight bend / forward lean, brings glutes and calves into action. I feel I went to the same coach as rbr, as the barbed wire (electric fence in my case) analogy was used. This was to keep the pelvis level so I wasn't 'collapsing' with each stride. I trusted the second advice more that the first, but there's so much out there and hard to know what's specific to you. I think the best advice would be to get someone to look at your form, and if you make any changes, do it gradually. I went from running 2hrs to 1min run/30sec walk, and was still getting some calf niggles. Now they're used to working though, they're massive....
  4. Very downhill. I did it the first year and swam about 28 minutes. Was close to last out of the water. Edit to add it's a decent calendar for living in Brisbane
  5. Struggled big time this afternoon. Fear I'm getting the sickness that is going around. Was swimming pretty well, then, BAM! could hardly lift the arms out of the water. Happened over about 25 meters. Had a rest once I barely made it to then end, tried again but had nothing. Called it a day and feel exhausted. See how tomorrow goes.... Also, what's with people wearing HRMs in the pool? Never seen anyone done it and tonight there were 2 different blokes wearing them.
  6. Rightio, give us go then.
  7. I can't look away. Looks like he'll just miss at this point, only about 3.5km to go. He's got 10 minutes to do it. Kilometres down scroll under the little timer.
  8. Yep, Yamba is a great spot. Accomodation booked, race distance tbc
  9. Agree Tyno, Crows looked the better team most of the day. It was the first AFLW game I've watched, great contest. There seemed to be a lot of kicking in hope though, just clearance kicks. Also a fair bit of ball watching rather than ripping in. Was hopeful we'd see some silverware come back to the Lions den, maybe just the Clash cup tonight. There's always hope before the first game...
  10. Good points on Insta from Liz Blatchford. https://instagram.com/p/BSA25ZyhNqX/
  11. Yeah I heard that. Said to him he was an idol or a hero. That's pretty cool
  12. That's great to watch. Don't know what else they could do to get people interested. Maybe some more data. So we can compare how sh&t we are. Would be cool to see live hr and power metrics. Even some kph and run splits
  13. I've just cracked a beer and am settling in with the Superleague. Might have to do a repeat effort once this one is done.
  14. Looks like it will work, from 4:30 anyway. Thought we were being geoblocked for a while there.
  15. She might be involved in the marketing. Would be good to see Jan racing. Clashed with other priorities or too scared?
