    Hey I said before I use to use a GPS with all the cool stuff. I became a bit obsessed with looking at data, half of it was useless. Becoming obsessive over numbers became unhealthy. My debate has always been it is overused. Every session needs to be recorded (mainly for strava so everyone knows what you are doing). Then when it malfunctions it is like you (people) are unable to function without it. FB and Instagram malfunctioned the other morning and for a lot of people this caused major meltdown. People were ringing radio stations in tears. In essence we have became lost in technology. Doing stuff the old way can be good as well and a combination of both tech and no tech probably is best That's my last bit on this. Rant over. Off for a holiday

    Didn't know it was meant to. Interesting group the tri group you can't be different. You must be like everyone else. Part of life ups and downs. Do I put myself in situations where I can get hit. Yes I do, this called running and riding in the real world. Do you realise cars actually meant to give way to pedestrian. Cycling I ride pretty defensively. No bike computer, and always cautious where parked cars, roundabouts and some intersections. I don't trust anyone on the road to do right thing. Running I probably need to do this more. But when you are on the footpath you think you are OK. Better me getting hit then some little kid though. I apologise for not being funny, not having all the gadgets and tech stuff. I apologise for having an opinion and for not fitting in. Sorry all. #buythegadgetsexpectproblems

    Don't do either. Amazing when I use sarcasm I get labelled a dickhead when others do it people thinks it is funny. By the way I do get a smile every time I hear someone having a gadget issue. Maybe the reason cars run into me and other people because they are not looking at where they are going. Called a phone which they continually have head down.

    I did a 28:20 run I would rather use the rest of time doing some mobility or technique stuff.

    No definetly not, more of a disadvantage then an advantage. Stupid bloody rule anyway. If you are not bare chested which she wasn't who cares. Triathlon is bit like the AFL, they have rules in place (with grey areas) but tend to forget to use commonsense when needed.
