    Husky Weekend

    Hell yeah I'll be there all weekend. Just done my last long run and hope I feel less smashed by sunday. Off some good form (by my standards) I am gunning to go sub-six. My hint for first timers is secure your bottles well - lots of ejections. Someone asked wetsuit swim - probably but not guaranteed. Miss Jess the lady you beat at tri canberra will be doing long course. Can anyone tell Emo to please set the run distance right - the extra 800m last year nearly killed me ; )

    Formula 2 Elite Energy

    I just went to register and found it closed - would have been fun, maybe next time...

    Formula 2 Elite Energy

    I think I can get around in under the cutoff, the layout looks pretty compact so hopefully transitions shouldn't be too long. With short breaks pacing will be a weird balance between OD pace and max-effort intervals. But how will I get all the legs on my 735 to track my splits???

    Half Iron Enduro Format

    Sounds like a lot of fun. Not enough enduros. I think the short swim and multi-lap format makes a lot of sense.

    Long course weekend

    There's a website for Jervis Bay http://www.lcwjervisbay.com/ in the brochures given out at husky. Emo gives dates above for Mandurah but I don't see anything else. I'm interested but won't enter until closer to the date - will depend how my off-season goes whether I have any chance to complete even the middle distances...

    Husky - Who's in ?

    I nearly did that once - so glad I didn't it would have been soooo embarrassing As per others, I saw minimal drafting. Now if only they'd resurface that road - on the faster sections I was vibrating so much I felt like I was about to enter hyperspace.

    Husky - Who's in ?

    That sucks, racing with the lurgy is awful. I must have come by you shortly after T2 judging by the times. You still beat me out of the water by 2 mins despite being unable to breathe : /

    Husky - Who's in ?

    What a great day. Beautiful weather (contrary) to the forecast. As usual wonderful atmosphere. 6 hours of pain. Why do we do it I have no idea. I'll be back next year. New run turnaround made the course close to 21km which was particularly painful to me because I screwed up my nutrition and finished bonked.

    See you all tomorrow. Definitely bring wetsuit although the water is very nice. Flanman, I'll be the one with a Bungy chord

    Husky - Who's in ?

    Anyone know what pros are racing? Also, anyone in the premium wave want to tow me around?

    Husky - Who's in ?

    Just arrived. I am pumped to go sub-6, this wind is not going to help, but won't be the super hot day originally forecast.

    When did you last do an Iron Distance?

    I will probably do an ironman one day, but right now half-iron is plenty tough enough for me. And I really enjoy sprint/standard distance events too.

    Anyone going to Canberra at the end of the month?

    Anyone want to tell me the swim course was a bit long? All too likely I just swam slow. But a bike PR and hit my run goal so super happy : ) Bogfrog you were one of two people to start late, great of Emo to adjust your time.

    Garmin 735 questions

    To calibrate, get in bike mode and hold down the up key for a few seconds (yeah - not obvious). You may have a problem with your watch in swim mode, mine stops and starts fine with the lap button and in between laps I can cycle through several displays using the arrow keys. I find the default display which shows last lap time, distance, leave interval really useful and clear. If your's doesn't do this something is wrong.
  15. What are the exact rules they will work to? Will they follow normal triathlon rules such as no outside assistance? If so how will they get nutrition? If not, fine but they should disclose up front. How will they verify that they've fully completed all the ironmans? If this sounds pedantic, I'd like to encourage them to avoid drama like ironcowboy elliptical. This would be an amazing achievement and if they do it some will question whether they cheated - they need to have solid evidence. Read the report on the Robert Young fiasco for solid suggestions how to do this.
