  1. Lots of things going on here, best if you can take a video of yourself running and analyze from there... But based on the data, seems like you're bounding/moving a little diagonally forward. You might be pushing off harder vertically because you're loading yourself up longer on the ground. Maybe try increasing your cadence a little more nearer to 180, your stride length with reduce along with gct and vo too.
  2. I didn't even noticed what bike Lucy was on....

  4. Goodness, having own a Shiv, I was expecting a super Shiv next... i just flushed those expectations down the loo, this THING looks FUGLY IMO... It's like they took ideas from the latest bikes which came out the past few years and just smash them together on a bigger scale....
  5. Interesting invention which might appeal to many (wealthy) triathletes and cyclist... https://redsharkbikes.com/en/
  6. Saw this from Runner's World, talent + hard work = results Yuki Kawauchi, surprise winner of the Boston Marathon earlier this week lives in a two-story suburban home with his mother and younger brother in Saitama Prefecture, about 34 miles north of Tokyo. Since graduating from college, he's worked 40 hours a week (1pm-9pm Monday to Friday) in an office for the Saitama Prefectural government. He answers phones, enters data, and collects tuition and meal payments. As a government employee, he gets about 25 days off and uses most of them for racing and traveling. Straitlaced and serious, Kawauchi spends most of his spare time running. Four mornings a week, he'll log 18 to 20 kilometers (11 to 12 miles) over about two hours in a park near his house. At night, he'll strength-train in his room with homemade equipment, using an old bike tube as an exercise band and a 33-pound weight bar from which he hangs his retired running shoes. He does speedwork on Wednesdays and uses the weekend to make up some mileage. He might hit mountain trails for anywhere from three to seven hours, but often, he competes. Kawauchi targets monthly “main” races before which he'll run various distances in preparation. Since 2010, Kawauchi has run an average of 12 Marathons and 10 Half Marathons per year. Add to that, about 15-20 other races (5k's, 10k's, 20k's, 50k's etc). Kawauchi tries to find a race most weeks and uses them for training. [information from: Runner's World]
  7. Congrats both of you!!! Really good times too despite the conditions. It was reported to be one of the slowest pro marathon times in Boston history.
  8. All the best mate!!! Keep warm!!! Maybe get some hugs (and kisses) from the Wellesly College gals at the Wellesly scream tunnel
  9. Not really keen on disc brakes on triathlon bikes, it just adds another element to worry about on the bike for me. Besides, who brakes in a triathlon.
  10. I like the sound of that
  11. Yeah, been surfing for it, only found a place in QLD which claims it does the replacement... New shock absorbers for the knees... hahaha

    Running shorts

    this one? http://www.wiggle.com.au/dhb-5-run-short/
  14. My missus showed this to me yesterday, never knew the meniscus can be replaced. Probably should sit down with the doctor to discuss all the options available, would really want a way to avoid surgery. Not sure if there is a way to manipulate the folded flap back?
  15. OMG, that is the same thing i have, doctor says apparently this is very common and can happen to just about anyone. Some just don't realized it until get too painful. But getting back on the bike in 1-2 weeks sounds promising.
  16. That doesn't sound too good, think I'll be heading that direction too... How long was your rehab after the surgeries? How many months after only did you started running again?
  17. Are you still able to run with these tears? I can't seem to run, as the muscles around the knee lock up.
  18. Anyone gone through this medical procedure before? I would like to know their review/feedback on recovery times, impact on activity levels, etc I got an mri scan on my knee, and it shows a tear on my lateral meniscus. Doctor suggested getting it repaired or replaced.

    Running shorts

    I have a pair of the C3s, they don't soak up that much sweat, but the inner liner does...

    Running shorts

    Tried the lululemon shorts before, never will I run for more than an hour in them again. Let me have a look at roka
  21. Have the same issue, apparently my ankles are a little hyper mobile and that doesn't go well on trails, especially rocky trails. I visited a physio who also trail runs, at first he got me doing a number of core work with the stability ball and wobble boards. Then we did a lot of single leg exercises, apparently I have to progress these exercises on the bosu and wobble boards once my legs get stronger. He also had me do single leg hops, and wants me to tense or keep the ankle stiff while doing them. Also he recommended a good trail shoe to me, and wants me to wear ankle guards when I'm on the trails for the time being.
