    2018 numbers - Swing ya d1ck time

    2018 was pretty good except for 2 little interruptions. For some reason I lost all motivation in august and fell off my bike in December. Other than those 2 months I've been consistently active and managed to stay reasonably fit which for me is the point of all this. Swim 2018 - 88.7km (2017 - 69.3) Cycle - 3,877km (2017 - 5,802) Run - 827.5km (2017 - 387.2) Total hours - 237 (2017 - 255)

    Training Question

    Do you have clashes with yours and your wife's schedules impacting on training? I found that a smart trainer and Zwift as a game changer for our family. Both my wife and I like to train in the mornings and this became impossible once we had kids. That was until we got onto Zwift and now we just take turns with who gets to go out into the real world for swimming/running/whatever and whoever is left behind can do their cycle sessions.

    Training Question

    Most people can get up at 5am and get in a good training session (except Kieran who works crazy early apparently) without missing too much on the home front. I find it's better to do that and be back for breakfast with the kids and leave evenings available to help with the arsenic hour in the lead up to kids bedtime. I sort of followed a cookie cutter internet program for 2 x cairns 70.3s and went great (for me). You're not going to win but you'll be fit, healthy and keeping in good with the wife because it's not massive hours. https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/kpdocshare/Training_Plans/Your_Best_Ever_703.pdf

    Job Seeking Advice

    Don't forget to mention that you're a triathlete and have recently done an ironman. Guaranteed to get any job once they know that........ Some really good advice in some of these replies.

    Zwift New York

    Had a go this morning with the Glasgow Green Cycle Club group ride. Definitely not flat and felt I was working harder than I do on that ride in Watopia. Didn't get much of a chance to look at the scenery anyway!

    Make some time when you next visit so that you can come in and do a mini tri with the Goondi Tri Club on a Sunday morning

    What on earth were you doing at Croppa Creek? I think I know whose paddock that is and @northstar lives just down the road.

    Best cheapest smart trainer for zwift

    The $1500 I spent on my kickr 3 years ago is still the best value spend I've had on any triathlon related purchase.

    Best cheapest smart trainer for zwift

    Wheel on versions are cheaper but I prefer wheel off. I only know Kickr models but I've got friends with cyclops versions that seem to work exactly the same. You can pick up a secondhand gen 1/2 kickr for $800-$1000. If you don't like it you will be able to sell it again for similar money. Brand new kickr snap at $750 works fine but I don't like wearing out my tyre, as well as checking the tyre pressure and making sure the tension knob has been applied the same each time you ride.

    Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    You get to know the climbs and how long you've got till the end. Alpe du Zwift counts down the corners ala Alpe d'Huez. I also find that I keep an eye on metres climbed and have a vague memory of how many metres are in the various climbs and do a bit of mental arithmetic.

    The Sharemarket Thread

    I was interested in a company called Johns Lyng Group (JLG) that is essentially involved in construction but specialises in clean up and rebuilding after natural disasters. Had a go at buying some shares a few weeks ago at $1.30 but they traded down to $1.32 and no closer so nothing happened. Now at $1.50 and I'm kicking myself. Now have the conundrum of whether I just give in and buy them at $1.50 or ignore them for a while and see if they revert back to some cheaper levels.

    The Sharemarket Thread

    Sharemarket having a few tough days because of old Trumpys attempt at starting a trade war. Is this a correction and a buying opportunity or the beginning of the next GFC? I'm down a bit but glad that I'd lightened the load a few weeks ago. Should have sold all of my ANZ shares instead of just half (Wagners is what I bought with the funds from the ANZ sale and they've done very well) but that's the benefit of hindsight.
