  1. So just clarifying, 80/20 is based on time and not distance?
  2. In the easy/fast bucket, Kira Beach on the Gold Coast, my only park run, clocked 3m of elevation on a shared path. It does have 2 turn arounds, but not a bad spot for a PB.
  3. 2 laps. I don't usually pass people on the run... that guy wasn't an exception (unless he blew up later and I didn't recognise him). From other photos going the other way just before the turn around he is going faster than me. Couldn't find his number in any photos. Heck yes. For my wife, but happy to share the love

    HM pacing advice

    Wow, I'd be dirty on a pacer banking time! (Not that I've ever run a standalone running event) How's the hamstring coming along?
  5. No injuries at the moment, but I wear my shoes quite badly (300-400km) on the left foot and can cause ITB pain if I'm not vigilant. I can't do 5km in 20min. Totally rested, flat as a pancake 5km is 4:38min/km. After seeing myself (in what was my best long course run) I couldn't help but think how much energy is being wasted going sideways. If I can avoid looking like a gumby that is a positive too 😉 Aside from fixing the gait, did you notice an improvement with your running? Speed/power?
  6. I do like the idea of sufficiently outrageous headgear to draw attention away from the supermodel walk. Been pointed at The Gait Guys, in particular, part 2. Part 1 is also worth a watch
  7. No one can top yours... Suggestions tho?!
  8. If you drew a line on the road, I'd naturally run with both feet landing on the line (not at the same time ;P). Anyone overcome anything like this? Suggestions on how to improve?

    Mechanic couldn't fix the wheel. Can I take you up on that offer @BogFrog ?

    Ah, all the options. Thanks guys. I guess I'll wait for the mechanic to get back to me. BogFrog, happy to be my plan B? Bosco plan C?

    I didn't hit anything (that I noticed), just went *crack* I have a mate bringing a training wheel and I'm having it looked at, the mechanic wasnt all too optimistic. It's a 10spd 60mm. Would prefer something other than a training wheel, but beggars can't be choosers

    Went for a little ride this morning and managed to break a rear spoke I am calm 😫
  13. Nice job! How'd the leg pull up?
  14. I did that also... about 3 months of climbing wasted
  15. 3:30 zwift and a 30min run 2 weeks until Husky!
  16. Just echoing @prizna and @monkie, not to mention the others I've been able to introduce to the race or bring along for a weekend away.
  17. I think he is saying Husky will be a DNS for everyone
