    Planning for Your A Race

    What does the lead into your A race/last 10 weeks look like? How do you go about approaching build/recovery/taper period? Usually, for a half, I do something like 2 x (3 weeks build, 1 week recovery), then 2 week taper Thoughts?

    Zoggs Gel Warning

    I used to use No More Tears... was always too lazy to do it very frequently tho. On the upside, you keep your goggles clean

    Kona Slot Giveaway

    Gordon Ramsay was on a podcast I was listening to (Tower26, episode #55), I think he mentioned 25% of entrants at Kona don't qualify. I did think it was quite that high!

    Best cheapest smart trainer for zwift

    I looked, and read reviews and waited, and read more, and eventually my wife got sick of it and bought me a Tacx Neo for my birthday/Christmas. Not a cheap option for sure, but I only hear good things from those who go Kickr or Neo. DC Rainmaker and @gplama both have more info than you can know what to do with. Seems a little bit like the bike thing "im getting into triathlon and want to get a bike, what should I get?" Inevitably leading to the place where you spend more money than you originally planned

    What training did you do today...

    2km swim... been listening to the Tower26 podcast and making some stroke adjustments... apparently when I breathe more, I'm shorter on breath? At any rate, I've been able to knock off 5 seconds or so per 100m. Need to spend a bunch of time reinforcing changes and getting used to it.
