  1. Hi Guys, been a while since I posted here. life was busy and certainly lost a bit of my triathlon mojo. My wife has put her journey with our little Hana over the past 4 years in a book. I know some of you have been very closely following and supporting us through this difficult journey. check out her book trailer and please support it! she's put her heart into it. Both of them Hana and my wife Naomi are my heroes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw8jSdMf_i0&t=21s
  2. This news really made me feel sick I rode on Mona Vale road that same morning. So sad for the family and all the riders involved. Hope there is a proper investigation into this one.

    Brownlee trying IM

    The guy won two Olympic Gold medals.... not accidentally found himself In the lead and sprinted to a finish he went in twice with intention to win as favorite and executed. This not a small feat and to repeat is mind blowing. He has blown away the competition whenever he intended to win. He is a born competitor and winner he will tare IM a new one. No disrespect to IM or Frodo .... Frodo would not have been a match to AB on any day. Yet He blew IM veterans out of the water. AB and Olympic champions are a different league of triathletes. He will decimate the IM field unless Gomez steps up too.
  4. well I could but I can't ........ very very time poor AND lacking mojo....deadly combo. I get about 60-90 min at home a day when my kids are awake so spend it with them if I can after which I'm off to bed myself! the main issue is also the lack of drive.
  5. Completely agree and thanks for sharing this. It dangerous that people think that being endurance athletes makes people immune to these conditions. People think they can eat shit because they will burn it off etc... it is important to know these things and to now what symptoms are....... my brother in law 35 yrs old and ex-squash junior world champion and seemingly very fit guy one morning randomly vomited on his way to work and felt very unwell with a tight chest..... the emergency NHS doctor at the hospital told him to stop trying to get out of work and get on with it..... he went back again with the same symptoms and the same doc sent him away. Turns out he was having a heart attack and because he was sent away suffered a myocardial infarction which would have been avoided had he been taken seriously. Also had he thought, fit as he thought he was, he could be having a heart attack at 35 he would have seen a private Dr sooner.
  6. thanks for the input everyone. that a good idea Alex. I'll mix it up a little and see.
  7. I should've added starting this with below than average Fittness so swimming 2 min slower than my 1 k pb and riding 6 min slower than my Calga 25 km pb as well. I guess it's probably wishful thinking still.
  8. So what are your thoughts ? Can I improve my riding by putting in one ride 2-3 hours long a week? Some weeks I may be able to squeeze one 60-80 min turbo session midweek. I can swim 20-30 min 2-3 times a week. One short run. I aim to only do sprints and want to do a couple of Calga TTs
  9. That is very well controlled pacing! Only had 20 min in the morning so smashed a 1k TT Shaved another 10 sec 15:28 !
  10. Ok shaved 5 sec off! 15:38 last week!
  11. First TT 1km in 25 M pool 15:43 Hoping to get training a bit can break 15 min this year ?

    IM rules

    Clearly you weren't there so you can't comment on this photos of blatant drafting. ...... what a bullshit argument!!! if you were racing and did not see any drafting or participate in any .. well good for you. you only see a fraction of the event and what occurs around you the moment you pass that point.... the spectator / photographer sees way more.... get some perspective. Drafting is endemic to IM simply because they do not care about policing it ..... 30 min penalty certainly would but... they do not want to upset their customers. You race , you draft a little , you get a PB..... next time you draft some more you get another PB ..... happy customer!
  16. So I got the green light to get s new turbo I want something nice to boost my mojo may be start using zwift as my motivation is at an all time low and so is my fitness Is a kickr or worth the extra dollars over a snap? Is the Tacx Neo the best? Read DC rainmakers last post and it seems to indicate that Neo is the best but only seems to be cause it's quiet ..... that's not an issue for me. What would be grateful for your advice!
  17. looks like Harry Wiltshire made another friend! http://triathlon.competitor.com/2016/10/video/jan-frodeno-kona-win-dig-deep_294806
  18. And Frodo smashed everyone at IM so will Gomez then smashed all?
  19. Has there been any hints or suggestions any of them will? Would they smoke the field? Gomez seems made for this but not sure how strong he would be on the bike. Spirig should really have the ability to dominate no?
  20. thanks a lot for that! I'm gonna do more reading using your search terms. My brother in law is staying with us so .... I have some man power too!!
  21. What Roxii said ....not covered unfortunately. I haven't measured it but I don't think it higher that 6meters. will getting there tomorrow and check !
  22. Not sure why there is such an anti Mel club here? She's delt with a fair degree of adversity , injury and I have lot of respect for how she made the transition from runner to triathlete and won a world title too. Give the girl a break

    Power Meters

    I have a Garmin Vector, PowerTap Pro and Quarq. Powertap is just headache free and works. you're locked to the same wheel though. I would get it on a wheel that can double up as race and training wheel like 808 clincher or HED jet, and get a disc cover. Quarq the same but a bit more cumbersome to move from one bike to another. also if you decide you want shorter or longer cranks you're stuck. Garmin were a massive PITA I was one of the early one to get it. lots of dropping out , breakages with the pods ...... But after software updates has now worked without an issue for 2 years approximately. gives left right etc. it is a pain to move from one bike to the other though. not as simple as changing pedals thats for sure.
  24. what happened to Mel Hauschilldt?
  25. well thats what my wife want me to do! DIY
