  1. Yup Nepean Triathlon, they don't have exclusive rights to that weekend, but pretty much everyone out that way knows it is on that same weekend every year. I guess part of the problem is, they would have asked TriNSW for sanctioning and they would have looked at their calendar and gone...yup, that's ok as NSW Club Champs is the following week, but they would have not asked anyone else as that is not the job of Ironman, they would have only made sure another triathlon was not on in the same state. Silver lining for Roth (and my friends going) is that Scotty and I will go now to cheer them on 🤣, as by then as that will be about time for another OS trip, which will be part of our honeymoon as the wedding is now postponed to June 2021.
  2. UTA has been rescheduled to the same weekend as Nepean. Port is 1 week before Western Sydney. I am moving my IMOZ entry to 2021. Chances are pools are likely to be open by spring, and I won't get arrested or frowned upon for going out 🤣
  3. Ironman Australia and Port Macquarie 70.3 Ironman Cairns and 70.3 No postponement date as yet. Just going to assume we get rolled over into 2021.

    Do you do weights?

    My physio has told me to work on glutes and hip flexors, especially the right to deal with an imbalance. My coach agrees and has also added single leg work. It now happens year round.
  5. I've now done two branded 70.3s, a 70.3 distance (Ultimate) and an Emo long course (2/80/20). Training for the my first IM this year. I'm probably going to say it's my only. I'm liking the 70.3 distance training load a bit better.

    BIG Husky 2020

    Swim was great, seemed to be spot on. Bike, lots of male bike packs, maybe a couple of ladies in there, but mostly the guys. Lots of shit road on the left side as usual, so got used to sitting in it instead of daring to come out and be barked at by some guy to stay left. I think I might go train on shit roads to practice! 😂 Run, bloody hot! But I think that might be my fastest off bike run, so the training is working. It was a shame I had a good injury otherwise I would have tried to run a bit more. Lots of aid stations ran out of cups and ice. Interesting things...Scotty had a guy leave a pair of wetsuit shorts at transition, he had ridden 1 lap in them already 😂 also was witness to another guy getting told off by one of the TOs for wearing a pair of headphones on the bike. Claimed that they were not even on, chucked a hissy fit, and asked her who she was to tell him what to do, said she was not his mother and threw the headphones to the ground 😂😂
  7. I thought Emmos post on Facebook was a joke.... 😂😷
  8. I had two friends train for Busso doing 6 hour rides on trainers. One of the wives would turn up with egg and sausage mc muffins 🤣
  9. Episodes of The Simpsons, although my indoor sets call for 30mins and episodes are 22mins. DOH!
  10. All my mid-week (and some of my weekend) training is on the kickr. Especially mid-week which are strength and tempo sessions, I can't get those done on the road without terrorising those on the shared path, or getting swiped by cars. My weekend bike session is more about time in the saddle now, so I will be doing those outside on a combo of paths and bike lanes. But I came from a cycling background, specifically mountain biking. So I got my handling skills back then.
  11. A measly 100g since last week. Perhaps not meant to be skinny.
  12. I'll weigh in tomorrow morning. But I doubt I have lost much
  13. I'm going to the gym and riding on the trainer. Only using a fan at the moment as the aircon brings it in as well. Most of the smoke in Rhodes seems to be early morning or late afternoon, so at least on the weekend I can get out for a run around 10 or so. We are thinking about going to Port Mac over Xmas (see the +1s family) but are playing it by ear. Hopefully there will be heavy rain to put all this shit out.
  14. My losses are small on the scale, but apparently my waist and hips are narrowing. I might just use the scales to make sure I am not putting on weight, but take the changes from the measuring tape. My wedding dress already seems loose and I swear I ordered the smaller size, and the setting engagement ring keeps on slipping down to the underside of my finger again.
  15. Yeah, might be taking a longer holiday later and my contract ends not long after the wedding.
