    Most of us are sitting on the fence here, so not taking sides, but Millward came across as credible on the podcast. Watt's response sounded like it was either drafted when he was drunk/high or written by his 12 year old daughter. The bit about Callum begging and haranguing Watt for coaching is laughable especially when CM has the emails. Potentially a douche move using social media, but in retrospect, probably the right thing to do. You can't have coaches running around doing that shit during a race. In a bar, pissed up he has a go at an athlete, so what, during a race, different story. And in actual fact Watt's response actually backed up and confirmed (more or less) what Millward said.

    Ironman pacing strategy

    Just a question re pacing IMWA. I’m not riding to power, just HR and will aim to keep it high 130s, low 140s. 180km at the weekend on Busso course I av 34 km/hr with av HR of 139. Did a 80km ride on Sunday with 32km brick run @ 5min pace av HR 152 for run. I’m aiming to ride really conservatively, but am worried that it may be too conservative, leaving me too much to do on the run. The guys that race similar 70.3 times to me are all around 9.50 – 10.10 for the full, so I’d be happy with coming in at that time, be great to sneak under 10, but I guess I need to get the balance right. Looking at 10 guys who rode similar Busso 70.3 bike splits (as a rough guide) to me (2.25) they’re all riding way quicker than I plan to during the full, low 5s. I was thinking 5.15 max, even 5.20 which would be almost a training ride. People are looking at me like I kray kray when I say I'm planning on riding a 5.20. Anyway add 1.05 for swim and T1/T2, leaves me having to run a 3.35…. seems awful quick! The 32km brick run @ 5min pace did feel fine, but then that was only off an 80km ride. *These times are based on the assumption max temp = 15C

    Busso 2018

    I think I've got screenshots somewhere of the forecast 3 days before May Busso 70.3 2018. It was something like light easterly winds, 20% chance of rain. Reality = storm with 80km/hr winds... .

    Was on just before. I normally do group rides and races. Don’t ride by myself really.

    Ironman pacing strategy

    I did a 160km training ride the other day, rode as a pack, 10mins at the front, rolling. Finished feeling like I'd ridden to the park with the kids. Did get me thinking about how much (or little) I got out of that. I suppose ideally you'd sit 12m+ behind and just ride by yourselves rather than as a pack, but I don't know any clubs/squads that do that.

    Wahoo Kickr Problems

    Is it the Kickr or Zwift? I had some issues with cadence dropping to zero and a few power fluctuations in Zwift. I also had my Garmin Edge 520 connected and could see all the readings from the Kickr were good. Have you updated firmware and Zwift app? What are you running Zwift on? I know with the Apple TV, there have been issues with readings due to too many bluetooth devices attached. Also true calibrating Kickr in Zwift.

    Zwift group training ride. I get absolutely flogged on those. I wonder how they compare to outdoor rides with traffic lights, drafting etc? Only 60mins, but on it for every second... I made the mistake of freewheeling for a nanosecond and got spat out the back lol

    Busso 2018

    Busso in may, av wind speed was 56 km/hr, max wind speed was 81 km/hr which according to the Beaufort scale is a severe gale. Great day for my disc!

    I'm not fit enough (Bullshit)

    Scared to underachieve, scared about pain, some will train and race, but not really like or enjoy racing. They're the ones that might train regularly, but race rarely. I know peeps who will do 1 x 70.3 or IM a season and that's it. Some are there just for the social side of things.

    Bike computer options

    You want a watch not a bike computer? If it's a bike computer go the Garmin Edge 520. Are you using HRM, PM? You can get a Fenix 5 for $500. Awesome watch.

    Busso 2018

    I did Mandurah 70.3 4 years on the trot and for 4 years all of November was mild (low 20s) apart from race day. Every race was 30+, one year it hit 40. I started looking at long range forecasts and obsessing about the weather. Unfortunately I figured out, those long range forecast are hopelessly inaccurate. I think it's just determined using some algorithim with historical data rather than current weather. Even 7 days out is pretty inaccurate. 4 days is close, 2 days is accurate. 10 days out from Mandurah 70.3 it had temp as 23, 1 week high 20s, 48 hours before was low 30s and race day was 39.

    Has anyone used a Token disc??

    I can't think of any Australian companies, all based overseas. I just run a 10 speed cassette on my 11 speed bike.

    He's going to love Busso. I wonder if Cameron Watt's going to be there? Any of his athletes racing?
