    But I thought the whole idea of keto was so that you could eat heaps of bacon?

    Yeah. I might not eat till next Monday to try to give you a push too. The other option would be to have a leg removed.

    Maccas Prince designs a short course for record

    The pool in Rio was spot on, but during the longer events they noticed irregularities with the splits the guys were doing, especially those in the outer lanes. Seems the filtration system was setting up a circular motion in the pool that was creating up to 0.2 second variation going one direction compared to the other, and the opposite way at the other edge of the pool. All good for the longer events, but I don't know what they did for the 50m events. Maybe nothing, because most qualifiers for finals were from 4 lanes 4 to 8, and then only 1 swimmer from lanes 1 to 3 podiumed in any of the male or female 50m events.

    Cranky does it again..

    AA7 won't have a hope next year after Cranky has 6 weeks training full-time.

    84.4 this morning, after fasting 24 hours through to 7:30pm last night. This is the first time I've been under 85kg since I passed it on my way up after my knee stopped me running & riding. A big drop this week, but would need an even bigger drop next week to try and take out these light-weights at the front. Maybe I'll fast for a couple days

    Wouldn't putting on weight during a weight-loss competition make him them the biggest losers?

    Anything to ward off the old "tuckshop arms".

    What training did you do today...

    1.7km this morning. Was an absolutely beautiful morning. I took it easy on the shoulder, and every 300m & swam 50 strokes of backstroke to break it up. It was lovely looking around at the dam and watching the birds fly over while on my back.

    What training did you do today...

    No training today (though the garmin is showing 12000 steps). After a busy morning in the yard I went for a nice drive over the mountains to the Brisbane Valley. Unfortunately for Monday's weigh-in, lunch was at the Fernvale bakery. If this is where Pete used to get his pies with AP, I'd better make sure I don't slip into any bad habits after I win my next WC.

    Benefits of knowing your swim time

    I look at mine when I'm swimming in the dam. It's set to vibrate every 500m, so once I feel that I have a quick look. I simply stop my stroke underwater for about 1 second and can read the time. Minimal delay, and if you really want to know how you're going, the time is there for you, and the distance should be fairly accurate.

    The pool thread

    For me it's when the light on the controller tells me to add salt.

    Thanks Prizna. I've never done a rolling start, always hated the idea (because I like the idea of racing the person next to you), but always wondered what the best tactic would be.

    Benefits of knowing your swim time

    I've got OD swim times from 12 minutes through to 28 minutes. How can you plan the rest of your race around a swim time when they could be short, long with the current or against?

    Anti Fog Solution (For Goggles)

    No. You just needed to swim faster to keep up.

    The cost of cycling on the road...

    It's actually for motorbikes, but yeah I know there are a few. Years back we had a guy in our group go over the edge a fair way. Managed to ride as far back as my place, then got his sister to pick him up & take him to the hospital. Turned out to be some internal bleeding, but not too bad. the worst bit was I had to climb halfway back up the bloody climb to find him.
