    Wurf watch

    That was an impressive race by Wurf. He is no longer just a uber biker. His swim is down to ~47 minutes and an impressive 2:45 run. On Strava he does massive volume, I think that he will recover in time. It is going to be a close and exciting mens race.
  2. Youtube is blocked for me so I could not see your video link.
  3. Controversial new ad put out by a foundation set up by some of the Sandy Hook parents. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-19/sandy-hook-foundation-releases-survive-the-school-year-ad/11528356 I disagree with the final tag line "All school shootings are preventable when you know the signs." Very glad that myself and my children grew up in a country where school shootings are not a reality.
  4. Some watches will allow you to broadcast the wrist HR. My Garmin 935 broadcasts my HR to my bike computer the Garmin 530. I really like my Garmin 530. It is the first time that I have had maps on my bike. As an older athlete I find that I can read the numbers on the larger screen.

    Magpies ?

    Link to the article on the cyclist dying while fleeing from a magpie. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-16/magpie-swooping-attack--man-dies-near-woonona/11515246

    Especially as Warner was at the centre of Sandpapergate.
  7. Everyone's favourite senator thinks that it was a false flag operation. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/pauline-hanson-and-the-ooze-of-port-arthur-conspiracy-mania-20190328-p518js.html
  8. I bought the Favero Assioma dual sided pedals from Willie. Make sure to put some grease on the thread each time you move them between bikes. I can swap them over in about 5 minutes. I bought a set of Look Keo pedals, which use the same cleats. That way I do not have to swap the pedals over for a one off ride.

    Warner is banned for life from a leadership position. Smith for 12 months from when he came back.

  11. My Kona training is going as well as can be expected. I spend 4 weeks at work. Every second night I will run usually for 90 minutes. The other nights I will either do intervals on an exercise bike or rowing/swim bands for 90 minutes. During my 2 weeks in Perth I try to maximise my swimming and cycling. During my last Perth break I completed 1350km of cycling, 30km of swimming and due to an injury only 25km of running. I am in Perth this week. On Sunday I will pack my bike into my bike bag and pack my suitcase. I go back to work for 2 weeks, have 18 hours in Perth and then fly to Honolulu for a week and then a week in Kona. I have signed up for everything in Kona - Ho`ala swim, PATH run, undie run, ST party. As a Legacy athlete I want to experience everything, as it is my one and only chance. Super excited now that the race is only a few weeks away.
  12. Be safe Monkie. I got caught up in the protests a few weeks ago and had to spend an extra day in HK. It took a week to get my suitcase back. While I was trapped in the terminal with the protesters, I felt very unsafe having seen the footage of the police using tear gas and rubber bullets in a subway station the day before. Work has banned us travelling through HK. Last week I had to go Beijing, Singapore, Perth. Next time it will be Perth, Bangkok, Seoul.
  13. Not buds, but I am a massive fan of the Trekz bone conduction headphones I bought off Willie a while ago. Perfect for cycling.
  14. Mark Allen posted this on ST It's the 30-year anniversary of one of the most amazing races in the history of the sport. Yes, the 1989 IRONMAN race between me and Dave Scott is that old. But for both of us it still feels like it just happened. My business partner and long time friend, Scott Zagarino, knows a lot of the back stories that had to take place for this matchup to even happen in 1989. He convinced both of us to collaborate on a series of stories telling about the year that led up to our epic battle and then of course recounting aspects of the race that only the two of us know. Scott helped us craft 10-stories that he will be publishing weekly between now and IRONMAN in October at the link below. The first one just went up yesterday. If you like the history of the sport, we are sure you'll love this. And if this first one brings back some great memories, stay tuned! There's nine more to come! Mark Allen https://1989thestory.com/ I have read the first story and enjoyed it.
