    9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    I got up early and did my training - then I had a School Marching Band in the Main Parade in town - think it’s the 5th year I’ve done this. Had 3 school Anzac Day services on Tuesday - which my bands play at.

    Flu shot

    School provides it for free - so I’ve been getting it for a number of years now — never had a problem with them. Teaching primary and high kids and visiting different schools — sometimes hard not to avoid coughing and sneezing kids who don’t always wash their hands and go to school when they should be resting at home

    Cairns 70.3 - any good?

    Both times I've done it (IM and 70.3) - the water was rough. Make sure you don't swallow any -- few were on the side of the road vomiting - after they got on their bike. Both times I've done it - I was in a storm and got drenched. Part of the IM course is exposed to the elements - so had a bad crosswind for short part of it.. Saw a croc basking in the sun - when I was riding over a bridge (he was on creek bed) But that's the tropics - weather can be anywhere. Just be prepared for that

    9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    Not me ( as in weak 😁) My arm rest snapped off 20km into my TT today - but I kept going to finish it ( after I picked it off the road and had to refocus )

    Hamstring strain.

    I had hamstring stain --on and off - for a long time. For some reason since I've been doing loads of side stretches ( have a broom stick on shoulders and leaning to the side ) and then twisting into hamstring stretch. repeating this. Then sitting against a wall - legs split and doing same. Also stretching and strengthening trapezius muscle

    Mooloolaba Start Waves

    Agree - a pack of 6 or 7 passed me -- and 2 mins later at TO came past and stayed with the group for ages -- the group didn't even try to pretend they weren't drafting - and I thought surely the whole pack should be stopped -- but no -- the TO bike drove on...not one got a penalty --- Didn't even see anyone in any of the penalty boxes

    Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Just before finish line I saw someone in my AG so I sprinted and passed them just before the line. — ( where the finish arch was ) but results have me 4 seconds behind . Guess I will have to email Mooloolaba tri and ask them - and wait for photos to come out to show them proof

    No thanks - thought there might have been a free bottle or something exciting like that

    Mool meetup

    Think they must have run out of visors - bags as I never received one and no one else was coming out with one at check in

    Garmin 735 Dead

    My Garmin 735 I bought from Pushy's just died today; one month over the 12 month Garmin warranty of course. It was in perfect condition, never dropped, scratched etc. It looks like it has filled with water during a short pool swim. I watched a story about the ACCC Consumer Guarantee laws on "The Checkout" a few months ago, and from what I recall, the law would pretty much guarantee that i can get a refund, repair or replacement as it would be totally reasonable for this watch to be functional far in excess of 13 months. Has anyone had any experience with pulling the ACCC card with a supplier where they want to just refer back to the offered warranty?
