  7. Chasing fitness with Ego

    If you didn’t train from jul to sept you lost a lot of fitness , you lose a lot after 6 weeks off if you training like you did back then then you will be fatigued ?? if you are easing into training and you are resting well and sleeping well and still feeling fatigued then see a medical professional

    We had 340 entrants at the Murray Man in SA here Nov 5th , locals are going to Busso so I doubt they will be doing this one
  11. New Fenix 5

    Ray recommends the 735 over the Fenix 3. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/06/garmin-forerunner-735xt-in-depth-review.html Fenix 3 will be unsupported a lot quicker as it’s old but will do the job for triathlons. Wrist optical heart rates are only good for heart rate measurements while sitting on the couch or for recreational users. Definitely use a heart rate strap if you are heart rate training / racing. I have a 935 and Apple Watch 3 and use a heart rate strap with both, both wrist opticals suffer with heart rate lock and changes in wrist movements.
  12. Disc wheels - yes/no?

    Good video - explains the aero science behind the rim depth
