    Busso 2019

    I found the bike to be really hot and blustery winds. I felt like I was going to vomit so I just rode within myself so I could finish . About the last 90km I was having double vision so I just rode so I could finish the bike ( it was weird seeing two of everything ) I thought I was try “ run “ 10km and then walk the rest - when I managed that - I thought I would run 2 laps and then walk the rest - after 2 laps I was starting to feel ok so I just kept running. saw about 9 people spew up on the run and a few sitting down having a rest - so I wasn’t as bad as they were feeling . Well outside my PB for Busso but very happy to have finished I found the bike to be really hot and also blustery wind - which changed directions I was just riding within myself to be safe from the heat.About the last 90km I was having double vision and just tried to focus on staying on the road - I was actually thinking I may not finish Run came and I thought I would just try to run the first lap and then walk the rest — I made it through the first lap - so I thought I will try to run the 2nd lap and then walk the rest — by the start of the 3rd lap I was feeling much better so just kept running

  14. I work on the rule -- anything above the neck ( slight sore throat, running nose) - is OK to train but don't get HR up and cut back on the running Anything below the neck -- rest

    Froome GONE

    Saturday 6 July
  16. My hubby liked the sleep in's when I would get up early and train -- then he started riding with me for part of my training -- then all of my rides. Then he started swimming with me and then running...now he does just about everything with me. Now 12 years later from when I started, and he is lining up in Cairns for his 4th Ironman. He starts work at 7am and works 10 hour days -- so we get up at 4am most mornings and finish by 6.30am at the latest
  17. Cairns #2 for me and 1st Cairns for Hubby

    All things IM NZ

    Does anyone get the TA membership upgrade ($192) to cover racing overseas ?
  19. We are in -- looking forward to it. This will be my 4th HOTW - have missed it for the last 2 years
  20. Don't go with Titan Performance - a know a few that did and haven't had a good experience -- fit didn't match their sizing chart, not responsive to messages, poor communication, took over 9 weeks to arrive, they didn't have sample sizes to try on (even when I offered to pay for postage both ways) They did eventually replace a tri top that I ordered -(ordered early July) after I sent lots of photos of the garment and measuring tapes that showed it wasn't even in their sizing measurements. However the garment still crawled up my torso - back and front like a caterpillar - so I got 15cm lycra sewed onto the bottom so at least I could wear it ( otherwise that was $200 down the drain) - it arrived a week before Busso

    What was even better was hiring mtb from The Hairy Marron plus the trails that are nearby are in excellent condition and loads of fun
