    Yep, that was the consensus when the discussion happened on here a few weeks ago.

  5. Ooh and Beacons from Willie. Yes I did race in them. 3 sub 20 parkruns in the lead up to worlds too.
  6. Cadens just a few weeks ago. I too am very fond of them so far.

    Yep, definitely more so from the sprint.

    On another matter, far too many people claiming a 10km PB when it was clearly short. I didn't measure it, but I was absolutely plodding and still ran 46min. I think Cranky had it about 500-600m short.

    The swim warm up area for the sprint was right near where a drain runs out and the water there was pretty gross. It was a fairly shallow section and the bottom was all stirred up. I don't like making excuses and I know some people that backed up well on Sunday. But I guess, it could've affected some and not others. I'm sure in over 100 triathlons I've raced over 11 years or so, I've raced with a mild cold or something a few times, nothing has ever made me feel like I did on Sunday though.

    Tempted, if I win lotto. The extra slots for women for Nice are appealing too.

    She is indeed. What an effort to win the sprint though. I can't use the same excuse.

    Yeh possibly. I did feel a bit feverish on Sunday arvo and was sneezing quite a bit.

    OK, that was undoubtedly my worst race ever and I'm so disappointed. Been training well and had a great race on Thursday. But for some reason, Sunday was a disaster. I felt awful from the gun. As soon as I started, my quads felt like jelly, even in the swim. My chest felt tight and I just couldnt get my breath, I had to do a fair amount of backstroke and breastroke and even stopped to float on my back a couple of times to try to get it together. Sightings the buoys at one stage, the buildings up ahead were all blurry. I was very happy to get out of the water, slow jog to my bike, still really tight in the chest. On the bike and just had nothing in the legs, had two little spews which was pretty gross. Tried to push through, but just wasn't happening. Plodded the run, didnt even try to push it, just wanted the race to end. Even took time to usher the baby plovers off the run course. I know this is just triathlon, but when you put so much into it and you're feeling good, it really hurts to get a poor results. End of sob story.

    Yes, very different body shape to the others. But can still run!
