    Wind Trainer Reccomendation

    My wife bought me a neo. No complaints. It's great. Can't comment on it verse kickr, but the neo has no callibration required, road feel and can be used without power. May or may not be worth it? Neo 2 doesn't look like a worthwhile upgrade though

    What training did you do today...

    Yeah, that probably was the overnight low My watch had a low of 28 and an average of 29 for that run. But I know I'm lucky. Some of the temperatures others have been talking about here have been brutal!

    Advice for first 70.3

    *Thread crossover* and you might just catch out the guy drafting behind you as he didn't see the bottle coming! But realistically, for someone's first 70.3, I'm not sure bunny hopping, shoes on the bike etc etc are the greatest 'bang for buck' training hours.

    Motivating People - Who's yours?

    I have a hard time pinpointing people who I find motivating... there may be quotes or stories that I find motivating but generally, unless it starts as a decision from myself, I find it much harder to have the same level of commitment to something. I'm sure a psychologist could make a mountain of money off of me though

    Realised today there was a Toasty badge on Garmin Connect (activity in 38 degrees or higher)... anyone cracked that this summer? Swim at lunch, 15 x 100m.

    What training did you do today...

    45 min run with 30second efforts every 5 minutes. A few short or bad night's sleep in a row and some early mornings and I'm toast. Looking forward to finishing tomorrow's long run!

    I'd rather be doing the hill repeats in the cold and rain than dealing with someone else's undocumented finances Hope it picks up Ex
