    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

    What training did you do today...

    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!

    What training did you do today...

    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

    Big Husky 2019

    How's the training going? What race(s) are you doing? Goals for your race? It'll be my 4th go at the Long Course after missing out in 2018. With the new course, the goal is to run well, which historically for me is anything under 6:00min/km. Aiming to do 10-20s/km quicker though after a decent run volume in the back half of 2018. 43 sleeps!

    Advice for first 70.3

    I too run like a penguin through transition (ie, in bike shoes), less dangerous for me than trying a flying mount That would be carnage! I also realised I've never done a 70.3 distance race either! Since Husky will be a 70.3 distance this year, it'll be my first too!

    Ironman WA (Busso) 2018

    Great read Stikman. Loved this paragraph in particular "As much as I dislike running, or perhaps it’s more a case of it disliking me, the marathon is probably my best leg of an Ironman. I guess that’s because it plays to my greatest strength…talking. As much as people might believe otherwise I can’t talk underwater and when you’re cycling your encounters with others are far too brief for anything more than a few shouted words. With my pace and that of those around me in the back half of the run though, life stories can be shared."
