    Sanders starts favourite

    So it looks like quite a bit of rain, correct? Who does that favour, the Uber bikers of the runners? Sanders in to $1.80 which seems really short!

    Equal Pay

    The standard of women’s surfing is right up there and I absolutely think top tier girls like Steph Gilmore would take a few heats off the men in 4 ft snapper. And this is the WSL, no one is surfing 80ft waves, it’s same locations at the same time so I can’t see a reason for different pay. Heres a question that I don’t know the answer to; does a company like Billabong make more profit from the guys or girls retail side of things?

    Gold Coast Marathon

    In for the half. Unprepared, story of my life. Still a long way out for weather but looks like a bit of wind coming for the latter half of the marathon. 4 hour finishers might have have a stiff headwind for the last 5km.

    Busso swim problem solved

    Or just follow the lead of WSL and move the event to a different country.

    So Macca basically sells himself like a prostitute

    Didn’t Sunny do time for tax evasion (or similar) already? I thought around 7-10 years ago he got locked up for a little while? Or are you referring to something new?

    Giro - Grand Tour Tipping Contest

    Great tour, kept me guessing until the end and while I would’ve loved to have seen Yates in Pink in Rome it was still a fantastic result for Mitchelton Scott.

    Running faster by running slower. Tips please

    40-50km is a pretty good week for me. Was certainly doing these weeks in half marathon and 70.3 prep but often wouldn't link 3+ weeks of that volume together. So weekly volune isnt isn't anything more than I'm used to in preparation, but monthly would be more. I agree, it's likely the volume that results in improvement, not the easy running itself. Just that the easy running is my best way to achieve such volume consistently.

    Running faster by running slower. Tips please

    Just a few notes from my experience doing the 80/20 method of easy running. Only been at it it a short time (since Christmas), with the aim of improving my 5 and 10km run times. I did 5 weeks straight of only easy running. Easy running was defined as "can I keep my mouth closed and breath through my nose for 500m at this pace?". I did around 4-5 runs of 40-50km per week, all easy. No efforts whatsoever. Pace was around 6min+ per km, down towards 5:30-5:45 after 5 weeks. Then I introduced a hard session once a week in place of an easy run. 2 weeks later and I run a sub 20min 5k off the bike, first time off the bike and about 30 secs of a running 5k pb. im quite excited about continuing the 80/20 (or 90/10, or 100/0) as I feel that there is a lot of progression to be made by simply running more and this is the method that will allow me to do that. I really enjoy running slow, often use podcasts, and while the ego takes a hit in the short term I'm confident I'll be a better runner in the long term. Just my 2c.

    Who is the best Aussie IM Male Athlete right now? Why?

    NIck Kalestein (spelling ?) had the fastest IM time of 2017 for an Aussie if I remember correctly, at Busso.

    Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    Am I right in saying it's a rolling start for the pros? 30 males, 20 seconds between them, so that's 10 mins difference between first to go and last. So it's not necessarily first across the line?

    Patrick Lange was at $17 on Sportsbet the night before the race when I last checked.

    I'm more so curious as to how he could be deemed the winner by Sportsbet. Has an age grouper ever had the fastest time on the day in an ironman? I'm thinking it could happen in the female ranks as they generally aren't as deep at second and third tier events.
