    Nah different shoes but around at the same time. The yellow ones were Nike Sock Racers, slightly heavier but with more cushioning were the green Nike Sock Trainers. In the day we used the “Racers” up to 20k and the “Trainers” for longer run legs. The yellow Racers were prone to your big toe wearing a hole, the Trainers were a lot tougher

    Still have my 1st pair of tri bars in the shed (mid 80’s), prior to that we use to make our own, prior to that it was cow horn or std road bars. Also found an old pair of Nike Sock Trainers from the late 80’s

    Winterfish 2018

    It wasn't so cold in the dam this morning, not as bad as I thought it would be though I was wearing a L/S wettie. Bloody cold afterwards though. Swam 6.3, a little further than planned and was starting to think 8 or 10 but then I remembered it was Mother's day and decided I'd better do the right thing.

    6.3k open water swim in L/S wettie, wasn't too bad in the water but so cold when I got out. Took half the day to warm up again.

    3k of form work at centenary pool... "heated" apparently. Planning on a long dam swim tomorrow and starting to wonder if I can fit my long sleeve wettie over the top of my sleeveless wettie

    What training did you do today?

    3000mts pool swim, 2.5 slow-med pull + 500 kick. Almost as cold as the dam, perhaps the sudden drop in Brizzy temps caught them by surprise.

    Magnetic Island Triathlon

    I hope to do the Magnetic Island to Townsville swim in late July, if I can secure a paddler

    Greatest American triathlete of all time

    It's all relative though, they knew just as much and used the same gear as their rivals at that time.... IMO
