  1. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Probably due to the mess up with the points in my age group
  2. What training did you do today?

    Drunk posting! Love it!
  3. What training did you do today?

    I'd be about the same. Very little difference if any over the last 2 years, but I've still improved on the bike - eg I can hold 90%.FTP for much longer than I could before. Increasing FTP is great, but there are other things to be improved also. Today was play day for me and I loved it. An 18km "long" run followed by brekkie with a friend and then the pool. As tri season is officially over for me, it was play time. Did a firm set of 5x200s to ease the guilt, but then played. Did some IMs and a bit of fly. Took the fins to the pool for the first time in a year as I knew my fly (ie quads) would've gone to shit. Anyway, had fun :-D
  4. Rotto swim canned - shark...

    Ditto Further proof :-D
  5. Stages Power Meter

    I've had it a year. I think it's Gen 2
  6. Stages Power Meter

    Nope, not fixed as stages say it's a Garmin issue and Garmin say stages issue. Basically of you use an "out-in-front" mount for your edge, you'll get drop outs. Very annoying when trying to do an FTP test! I flipped my mount around the otherway so that there was no metal between the stages and the edge and all problems resolved. I don't have issues with my 920...
  7. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    "All registrations for the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Gold Coast must be made through the national federation of the participating counties. " So there will be costs on top of that I'd say - to pay for team doctor, team mechanic, etc etc etc
  8. "rest" - an evil word. Unload the area, sure, but complete rest is rarely the answer (except for some injuries of course). When you rest, not only are you unloading the injured area, but you are also unloading everything else. When you eventually get back to it, you are unfit, but most of all the other muscles, tendons and ligaments have detrained and lost strength. Then you often get another injury due to this. Paraphrased from my physio and it rings true to me
  9. She's taking break from running - isn't that enough? If the physio says she can ride, let her ride... I know I would be! Sorry, can't offer any advice Cranky, but wondering how on earth you have managed to race 2 tris with a foot that requires a moonboot?!? Was it not painful? No extra damage caused?
  10. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    That was quick indeed! Anyway, based on my Moo result (I think I have 76 points) I have just registered... Not gonna do Wollongong as all that will do is give me up to 5 extra points and I don't think I need them.
  11. Mooloolaba Start Waves

    Where were you when I needed you?!? That wind showed up my lack of bike work big time... But in all seriousness, I didn't see any blatant cheating out there when I was out. Saw one guy being spoken to by a TO - for blocking I presume, but he looked like a newbie and probably didn't really know (was wearing shorts and a t-shirt)
  12. Mooloolaba Start Waves

    The morning of the race I saw one of the TOs go up to a guy who was at his bike in transition and wearing calf sleeves, and tell him that he wouldn't be allowed to wear them. He said he knew, that he was only wearing them to keep his calves warm...
  13. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Or a week early...
  14. Mool meetup

    Yep, that was the name and it was good. Wasn't called Greatbar...
  15. Mooloolaba Start Waves

    We were the last wave did not have a dry road. It rained for the whole 20km return leg and stopped for the run. The age group had blinders as it's a very strong field. If you compare their times yesterday to what they normally get it isn't out of place.
