  1. What are the thoughts on the Kickr Core? My Elite Drivo is so bloody loud these days, think the belt is cooked
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  8. 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

    Cairns full is $150k, no pro race in 70.3

    Asia-Pac champs (more prize $). Also, Sunrise Events look after the pros very well and Alaska milk sponsors a bunch of athletes
  11. Well, there’s no funding at all (not even tri suits when I did it) and probably a bit early for most Aussie long course athletes to head to Europe for extended stay (given you’d probably want to be there a bit before race).
  12. Although, did hear/read a comment recently that St George may be difficult for split day due to there being so many mormons and Sunday’s being a day of rest
  13. Great to see WTC consistently picking tough courses for 70.3 WC!
  14. If we’re talking about the world, unlikely anywhere in Aus, drivers are simply too shit... Girona is great but can be boring/lonely, especially if you don’t speak Catalan or at least Spanish. Have heard good things about Portugal and Mallorca too. Think Customer is on the ball though
  15. My personal opinion is keep it simple and use what works for you! I’ve never used SFuels but with that fat content, I’d highly recommend trying first as it could cause some issues ‘at the back end’ if you know what I mean
