    Trannies Strava Page

    I was looking at some of the Strava segments from people ( I know how their race times ) — “ easy 4 hour ride “ - 130km — “ easy Ironman pace run “ - 4.30 min/km Pace ( 15km ) —- then I discovered there is a digital EPO that improves your ride and run by 5% when uploaded to Strava !!!!!

    Bike Bag Recommendations

    Looking for bike bag recommendations. Have done a search on here already and seems the EVOC and Scicon seems to be most popular. Would like one where you don't have to remove handlebars if possible. After many years of using a frame/ travel bike box made of PVC Conduit/ Corflute that my hubby made -- used for both international and domestic - it finally has had it's last flight -- where I believe a baggage handler has walked on the box (this has happened before ) and trashed the frame the bike goes on. Thinking soft bag -- thinking baggage handlers might be more careful !! and at least not walk all over it

    Ironman Aus 2018 - The good, the bad and the ugly

    Always good for me - is passing blokes on the bike (especially any hill) and run. Love it especially when they zoom past me on the bike and then give up on the run. Love the swim course and the great support on the run and bonus - I passed two 70.3 competitors on the bike coming back into town

    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
