  1. Never been tested in my life... Apparently my $1k US to IM every year contributes towards testing but who is to say they don’t just take the samples and flush them down the toilet as what incentive would they actually have to spend money on it? In saying that though, I do truly believe pro tri to be quite clean. Perhaps this is because I believe the guy who is clearly the best in the world (Jan) is most definitely clean.

    Kona 2019 Picks

    We’re getting closer to the big dance, so here is mine: Women 1. Daniela Ryf 2. Laura Phillip 3. Anne Haug Men 1. Jan Frodeno 2. Braden Currie 3. Sebastian Kienle or Cam Wurf (if in same swim group, Kienle. If Kienle doesn’t make Wurf pack then Wurf)
  4. I thought Coffs Harbour was great. The old highway gets you out for a fairly long ride should you want it and plenty of hills to be had. Good pool. Probably didn’t run enough to have the best insight, but perhaps worth some consideration
  5. Between bed and the couch with some occasional quad and glute activations.. Navicular surgery was done on Wednesday!
  6. Placebo is one of the strongest, WADA approved drugs on the market IMO. in regards to above though, some people would get that email and have a ripping day, others would feel one tiny bit of hardship in the race and slow down because they just don’t see a need to push hard for anything anymore. Different strokes for different folks. Same goes for bad news. Anecdotally, I had to stop listening to ‘pump up’ playlists pre long course race as I found it left me overstimulated and spending the the first 300m of the swim going well over ‘threshold’ before having to slow down so far below threshold that I would lose feet just to try and recover. Others thrive on that. As below, everyone’s peak arousal curve is different and it’s worth learning where yours lies
  7. And that’s probably being kind as to what is in some of them! Given the other thread on needing to poo during runs, I’m not sure how many on here would go so good chugging down pre-workout before.... And that is before considering the risk of them being contaminated (whether deliberate or not) with other banned crap
  8. What are the thoughts on the Kickr Core? My Elite Drivo is so bloody loud these days, think the belt is cooked
  9. Unfortunately I’m out after fracturing my 4th metatarsal. Bummer but looking forward to watching the coverage! Heading to Cannes and Andorra instead, could be worse!
  10. Jeez decent start list for one slot! I’m stopped over in Singapore airport right now. Had planned to race Staffordshire 70.3 this weekend but unfortunately my foot flared up this morning so made the call to just go straight on another plane to Girona when I land in London and give it a few days off running and get a bit more training in. Cork was always the more important race. Excited to race a good, solid course with against some strong guys.
  11. Ideally, if could go a little longer Sunday then swap Thurs and Sun and build up to 90min around 80%. Also, ideally build Friday run up to 80-90min if possible.
  12. I would think utilising brick sessions would be a good use of time. e.g. Go to pool, 200-300 warm up, main set of 10x100 or 20x50 or 5x200, 200-300 cool down. Out of pool into run gear, 5min easy, 20min Mona Fartlek, 5min easy. Potential week (discuss) Mon - swim only, get 3km+ Tues - 45min ride incl 4x3min 110-120% threshold with 3min reco - 15min run off bike (easy) Wed - Swim/Run brick as above Thurs - 1hr ride - 5min build warm up, 50min straight @ 80-85% FTP, 5min cool down Fri - 1hr easy run, enjoy it Sat - 40min incl 1500m of race pace+ work - 20min run off @ HIM pace Sun - 1hr ride as 10min warm up, 4x8min @ threshold of just over, spin to an hour
  13. Another week in the bank. Swim - 28km - 5 x squad, 1x recovery Bike - 564km - 1 x 8x8min at 340w on Zwift, 1 x Vo2 session on Zwift, 2 x 180km (brick runs off), 1 x easy 80km Run - 62km - 1 x 6x5min at IM pace, 1 x 10km brick run off long ride at IM pace, 1 x easy 10km, 1 x easy 10km off long ride, 1 x 20km long run

    The 1% stuff

    Further to above, sleep is the number 1 performance enhancer (legal and illegal). If we could all sleep 10-12hr a night, what a difference it would make! I have been making a conscious effort to get 8+ as much as possible and try to avoid anything under 7hr where I can.
  15. After getting back into running and with IM Cork only 5 weeks away, I’m in the midst of a solid month. This week: Swim: 27k, 5 squads and one short open water (sub 15deg) Bike: 601km, two rides 180k+, one 30/30, one 8x8min @ 340, one easy 3hr Run: 52km, 5 runs, all easy except for 30min @ IM pace off of Wednesday 4.8k Swim + 180km ride
