    Day 2. Bloody hell. 276km ride. The first 220km in the rain which gave way to brutal, brutal winds. This thing is a massive team effort, but the bloke out on the road is phenomenal. He goes places I’m not sure I’d come back from. I’m glad to report no penalties today.

    Unbelievable. But believable at the same time because it's happening. I thought I was going well with my ride this morning.... LOL but after seeing how strong those winds were/are via the UMWC Facebook page.....geez that's a serious ride

    But the article you posted said that raw eggs: Have a higher risk of salmonella Interfere with bioton uptake Have less available protein. What are the benefits i missed? From the article: PROTEIN BIOAVAILABILITY Cooking raw eggs increases the bioavailability of the protein in them. According to a 1998 study published in the "Journal of Nutrition," 51 percent of the protein found in raw eggs is bioavailable, meaning only about half of the protein in a raw egg can be absorbed by your body. In contrast, by cooking the egg, the bioavailability of egg protein increases to 91 percent, making cooked eggs a much better source of available protein than raw eggs.

    Walked to the pool and back, and did a shitty 500m of drills and crap the physio wanted me to do with leaking and foggy goggles. It was less than ideal.

    2.5km this morning in the resort pool. A bit annoying that it didn't open till 7am, but the sleep-in was nice for a change. No swim yesterday, but after a long drive up to 1770, I had the option of a late swim, or a late afternoon/sunset walk about 5km along the beach. The walk was a much better option. #onedayinarow

    Tri suits optional? And selective race number placement? (No pins of course, race belt only)

    Don't beat yourself up mate. I'm sure he's glad to have people that are there crewing for him. Mishaps happen and it's a long event, he can make 6 mins up somewhere I'm sure. Also, he's very skinny, I'm pretty sure he couldn't throw much of a haymaker

    Please do it! And report back here! I want to show my daughter whose best friend has CF and is currently in hospital again that people with CF can live a fulfilling life and do amazing things! Time doesn’t matter! It matters that you’re having a crack

    For someone that was totally underdone and overweight, I was pleased with my efforts on the day. Good swim (in @ 42% the field); good bike - (in @ 54% of the field) and as usual, slow as anything on the run. 17 of 28 in my AG. Not as hot as I though it would be - up until 5 kms into the run. I might even do a race report - the 1st since 2002. FM

    After riding up it for the past 2 days, decided to run up a mountain. Might have to have a crack at finishing in under 60 mins next time. 11k's @ average 7%. https://www.strava.com/activities/1290845893/overview

    Yep they will FP, I’m building it up to be a tourer, takes me ages as I prefer to do stuff myself and with colleagues instead of paying shops to do it. Will build the actual draws in the next week or so then put a floor on top of the frame then I can start my electrical work in the tray.

    95min easy mixed trail run with my neighbor. Her phone kept announcing to the world that our pace was 10.30 per mile. She still has the phone but it was nearly swimming with fishes.

    I know it’s crazy on the back of that performance. I think as with a few of the pros it’s probably not really performance that dictates when they retire it’s more about making a living. Also good to see Mel get an emotional win, probably a confidence boosting performance after a pretty crook year.

    Hopefully Garf can get on here and give his thoughts on the women’s race as he was riding the escort bike for 2nd female today. Said it was the final turnaround where Mel dropped the hammer and that was that. Missed the female finish as I was getting some relief from the heat then Mel stormed home before I could get back to the finish line. Rugby League legend Mick Ennis finished with a huge grin on his face finishing not only his first 70.3 but his first triathlon in 4.46 pretty respectable for a solid lump of a lad.

    Those Zenith straps I attach to the frame to secure them (one from the hook, other from side anchors). The horizontal beam slots into the tray's cutouts at the side (red bits are attached foam to give a snug fit). The bolt under the fork mount is removable for adjusting it back and forth using the other holes. The front small horizontal piece fits snug against the closed back as added security to stop forward slide and also adds stability. Hope that makes sense mate.

    I built my own for the back of my Hilux. Mounted fork-mounts to adjustable set-up for different bikes. Fits 2 currently but easy to add third. Let me get a pic for you mate...

    Yeah, but you'll need a wedge to eliminate your natural heel-toe drop. It's only .5 mm, it should be 10 mm. Trust me, I watched this thing on the internet. I'll send you a link with your first receipt......

    you only have to watch 1 IM to realise that not everyone finishes. And that's people who wanted to do it. To pretend that anyone can just rock up and do it, if they really had to, is ludicrous.

    He's some great advice. Speaking from experience! Did my 90 minute run this morning and then had to have a bit of a break before I jumped on the bike as I had to get the girls ready and for them to be picked up for acro. Decided to have my standard post training drink, raw eggs in chocolate milk, but because they were a bit smaller I threw in four. About 45 minutes later I jumped on the bike for a 90 minute wind trainer session. Not good. I thought because I wasn't running, it would be OK. Wrong. Felt sick the whole time. Didn't spew though, and finished my session, so that's great!

    Any one who has a separate swim coach - bike coach and run coach is on the wrong track - I've seen it fail too many times An athlete has only one immune system and it needs to be considered in the overall plan - every session needs to fit in with the rest of the plan - you may think you're clever enough to manage all three coaches expectations but it seldom works

    I have the TacX Vortex Smart and I'm very happy with it. I ordered from Pushys but they're out of Stock. Chain reaction have it though: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/au/en/tacx-vortex-smart-trainer/rp-prod125671?gs=1&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Chain+Reaction-AU-PLA-PLA-All-All-SE-Shopping+QLB+Manufacturer&utm_medium=base&utm_content=mkwid|sggFqFOBd_dc|pcrid|125706176920|pkw||pmt||prd|450045AU Incredibly simple to set up and use, works with Zwift and Trainer Road on my iPad and Samsung. Ideal piece of kit.

    First time I did yoga, the instructor mentioned at the start of the class "too many people live in the past with regret, or are waiting for something in the future. They fail to live in the now" I thought that was a great idea & in 4 years when I paid my cars off I would start living in the now. Woke up at 4am & decided to sell both my cars. By 9am I had both cars cleaned & on car sales. Sold one of them by lunch time and the second one a week later. Cleared $20k in credit card debt, interest free shit & started living in the now. Taken my daughter on holidays all around Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Mexico, 9 x to the USA. About to book a trip to Spain, France, Italy & Germany in April. I roll the dice at work, take the risk & apply for positions I have no experience in etc. I'm not going to go out wondering "what if" Making some changes in my life now to concentrate on doing something I tried when I was 18 & failed. Never done a yoga class since........

    Yeah ive had a few injuries over the years which I always manage at the time with excercises. I know we should always do something but I don't. I'm having flash backs to a chat with Hacq1 one day. Me : physio has given me excercises to help me stretch out so I can actually touch my toes. Hacq1 : how many times in an ironman do you need to touch your toes? Me : 🤔

    It will probably help anyone and will particularly help if you don't stretch etc. I do yoga. It's very good for core strength and balance. Depending on the class it can be way harder than people think. Some classes are easy and others I almost need to be carried out. I went to one really brutal class last week where my arms and legs were convulsing under the strain - was awesome! After 18 months I did a physical screening with a physio and they seemed surprised with my scores - I think I did well on the core stability and flexibility tests. But really you've answered it yourself, you have the time so why not give it a crack? Nothing to lose and potentially some decent improvement to gain.
