    Sharks vs Broncos

    As I said I don't know, but a penalty that clearly denied a try? He could have tackled legally but he did not. Could argue as in other codes he should be sent off

    question as I am poorly educated on league. As Slater was penalised and if had not done that the player would have scored, is that a case for a penalty try. Should he have been sin binned

    For zwifters is there a preference for day and time

    Transitions - What do you want?

    Most of the courses have a sprint point on them. There are plenty of all out races, formula that work well is, number of laps at whatever w/kg aiming for. Sprint, regather, last lap race to the finish. As you already have a number of people here your event will get people and if they bring at least one friend, that boosts the numbers in the race, will direct traffic to the site. Boom we have: broadened our presenece increased our numbers extended our reach Off course the ride needs good culture and to be well led

    Juggling life training

    Hope so, back to my trusty mix one bottle per hour

    Juggling life training

    As kids get older (both weekend mornings soccer, swimming in the weeks, karate, wife has senior job as do I), trying to have everything. Accepting that I wont be winning anything. Have averaged consistently 10 hours a week, few above, few below, two weeks where I got sick. Swim 2 times per week, able to swim 2 * 1900 holding 1:40 Bike 5 hours over 2 rides TH hard racing stuff, one or two other rides easier whenever I can fit in Run about 3 hours 35 K a week most weeks, can run 40 min 10 K Hoping I can still give a decent account of myself at Shep and go low 5, is it worth doing, or give it away for a while?

    Ha, that was last year, forgot to bring the stuff I like, bought stuff at expo that was not great, probably took on one mixed bottle the entire bike. So my bonk in the run may actually have been a case of not enough fuel

    True, once you start to expect it, it can be easier to give in earlier. Reflect on Im one, had no idea what to expect, walked at the 21 K mark for a bit, then got a bit annoyed after walk running through to 28 k where I said to myself, I did not pay all this money to walk and then ran the last 12 K sub 5 min pace. Now if I had only done that earlier

    Juggling life training

    Hmm, something in that. I did notice the massive cliff that happened at the 13 k mark of the run. Which did not happen in the past, will see how big it is this year and how early it hits

    Juggling life training

    Think this is where I'm at, external social life is almost nil. I have moved on from big training and plans and do my two squads, ride a few bunches and races and run with the dog. This is fun and does not feel like work, if I zwift I do a race, not canned work outs. 18 months ago I decided to give up being serious and coaching. went 1 % slower than I did being serious (ten minutes), saved a lot of money and a lot of stress

    70.3 World Championships in South Africa

    He did 7:56 for an ironman, how much more endurance does he need to build?

    Is coaching 90% mental too?

    I'm playing back what you are actually saying, which is different to what you think you are saying. If you read the actual conversation, instead of having to be right, you will see I actually agree with you. Once the fitness is there the mind is more important and even if there is a person with more talent and more fittness the one tougher in the mind can win. Of course the baselines need to be sort of close to start with. The difference between an EPL player and a championship player is almost all decision making and not physical

    Is coaching 90% mental too?

    It's a wild card to throw the term loosely around. Could use the word committed, willing to work hard, no one would argue. Dismissing people who can't get say to Kona as not having it mentally is a bit rough.

    If person 1 and person 2 both did the same work for 20 weeks - but person 1 was mentored and guided through whole way and person 2 just trained hard and had no support - the results would be so much different So you are saying you have to do the work then mental aspects make the difference between two people equally trained, equally talented. So you are saying its mostly physical.

    If you said, its mental, meaning the physical requires the mental. Then it makes more sense.

    Equal Pay

    Clearly gets coached by her coach (which has has admitted to) and gets a warning, has a little sook and smashed a racket so gets a violation, calls the umpire a thief and get a verbal abuse penalty. And some how she turns this into her championing for women's rights?? The level of delusion is mind boggling.... “I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is an example for the next person that has emotions that wants to express themselves, that wants to be a strong woman and they’re going to be allowed to do that because of today." Wonder if Serena was equally fined, makes case for equal pay. She also threatened the official that he would not umpire again. So that's worthy of a reasonable suspension

    Equal Pay

    Steffi Graf was much better. Not sure how this was sexism from the umpire.

    Is coaching 90% mental too?

    One person does 2 hours per week training for 20 weeks on the basis it is 90 % mental Person 2 does 20 weeks of 20 hours per week on the basis it is 90 % physical Person one and two were equally fit at the start. What is the likely result?
