    Big Husky 2019

    Prizna - I guess we can now, as most of the keen folk have already booked their digs for the weekend (and when I did last month, there was almost nothing affordable!) I'm in, Scotty and I will be there - we are staying in Vincentia. Arriving Friday and leaving Monday. Race plan is sprint distance for me and enticer for Scotty on the Saturday and maybe the swim or bike for a team on Sunday, if you want to make up a team let me know.

    Yeah, I just use that term as I cannot say he works for me (not his manager unfortunately!)

    The Mental Health thread

    I'm just EXHAUSTED! I have a resource here who does not seem to think for himself, who does not do the job properly, and then blames everyone else when shit goes wrong. I'm exhausted just dealing with him. The other one in the team is S-L-O-W and does not document, it's shitting me. Although bright spot is I have a guy who has just started on the 7th and is a breath of fresh air. Exact opposite, only issue was getting all his access sorted!

    Biggest Loser - January 2019 Reboot

    89.9 - not much but going in the right direction. I'm also relaxing things from Friday night to about Sunday afternoon.

    Biggest Loser - January 2019 Reboot

    Standard response - get drinking! Possibly scientific response - maybe the booze was reducing your stress levels, they do say that stress can make you gain or not lose weight?

    Behind saddle bottle holder

    I have one of these, but I think they work on the specialized saddles only, but who knows? https://www.specialized.com/au/en/direct-mount-reserve-rack/p/155838?color=229243-155838&gclid=CjwKCAiA1ZDiBRAXEiwAIWyNC-h661bAa3Ho3IgjzFsnh2NDTLFq4NSSwjOIE0bzluufuzRIGWxuXxoCwQcQAvD_BwE I have two cages on there, one is spares, one is spare electrolyte. Mostly for training and races where there are minimal bike aid stations.

    Port 2019

    Well I have finally put the money down, 70.3 entry in yesterday. Now to figure out how to run over 10km again. 😖

    Stroke correction - Sydney

    Hi folks, need some assistance on finding someone to help the +1 with getting his freestyle more efficient. Most of the places do payments on a term or fortnightly basis. Would prefer to not sign up to heavy commitments. Also might need to look at weekend sessions or later starts mid-week (say 6.30pm or 7pm) as we both work in Mac Park and it's not easy getting to the city for a 6pm session. Ta!

    Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    If I see NY on the calendar I get on the workouts. I think cranking it up a sudden hill on the opening week is what killed my back.

    Official Zwift Group RIde

    From experience - you won't be able to cover everyone, I ride alone most times as I have found that the w/kg estimates are out of whack, besides that what others deem to be cruisy I am struggling. Normal ride - I reckon cover it for you stronger lot - I can weight dope I guess (~2w/kg is my FTP) Group workout - The other option is a group workout where we all hang together, but work at our relative w/kg

    What training did you do today...

    That was me on Tuesday night - left foot decided to not play, so I kept kicking away using just the right (was in fins) and still overtook someone

    Tribar Suggestions

    FP, they are nice and comfy. I might check my arm pad screws, they are looking a little brown.

    What training did you do today...

    I'm riding the 8k or so to and from work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I was thinking of increasing it, but I probably need to make sure I get more TT/aero time which I can only do on Zwift.

    Big issue

    Either way, just as long as it's on the menu, I might go a schnitty, but sometimes I might go the extra step....I like to have the option. Always with chips.

    Zwift Roll Call

    Friday evening, can we use beer as our hydration?

    The Mental Health thread

    That might be the problem. Not being driven and being near someone who is can make some feel inadequate. Just seeing all of their achievements can make some question themselves.

    Hills Triathlon Sprint - Regatta Centre, Penrith

    Entries close tonight at 9pm, have a look at the club website. www.hillstriclub.com Hopefully being an early morning race we end up not getting those headwinds that we get in the afternoon.

    Zwift Roll Call

    Jess HillsTriClub - 18 I think, but I am also only 2w/kg my FTP is ok for a chick, but my weight is not.

    Port 2019

    I stayed at Town Beach Motor Inn last year, it might be a bit squishy, but was ok price wise. I'm over at Riverside this year, the ferry is gonna be a bit of a pain, but it's free and my hosts feed me well

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    Rule violation. I have drafted, but I was not out there to cheat or gain advantage, just getting stuck on a super crowded course. Ever played leap frog? Some races have felt like that, pass someone, then 2 seconds later, pass someone else....
