    I'm going to suggest to GTN show that they a do an informal 'test'.

    Unfortunately I don't - and a quick look around the internet, it seems no one has every really looked into it. I guess I could say 'if there was significant benefits in using SPD over SPD-SL type pedal systems, pro triathletes and pro cyclists would be using it'. But I guess it's 'each to their own'. If you prefer SPD for tris, go for it

    Raby Bay Brisbane Riding

    Can second this for a solid TT workout - where I used to do mine as well. Another option for TT work is along Mt Glorious Road at Samford - between Samford Village and the start of the Goat Track. Some other people I know do TT work out at the backstreets of Thornlands in the east. Feel free to drop South Bank Tri Club a line if you're after some training buddys (I'm a member, though not training for long course). They do all their training around Sotuh Bank area and usually they're open to having other visiting triathletes join in.

    2018 wrap up

    I’ve had a fairly terrible 2018 and its pretty much ruined me for meeting any goals. Lowest moment? I guess the day after I found out my father had a stroke and had to retire from the work he lived for. At the same time I was doing final exams for a degree and was dealing with the fall out of the end of a long term relationship. Couldn’t exercise for months and piled on weight…later found out I had undiagnosed glandular fever. Talk about everything coming at once! Most rewarding moment? Finishing the three day Velothon and also finishing the Kingscliff sprint tri last week – my first triathlon of 2018! Actually doing crit race and overcoming some fear of competitive bike racing. Worst race? Day 1 of Velothon on Sunny Coast. Man, I suffered that day! Best Race? I suppose the Running CEOS Fast 10K run. I hadn’t run in 10 months and put on about 10KG, but I still ran a sub 55 min 10K which was about 10 minutes faster than predicted. Harshest lesson? Consistency is key What was your aim for 2018, did you achieve it? Initially finish Velothon, which I achieved. Also wanted to lose weight, but that didn’t happen What was your biggest learning? That I shouldn’t expect any results if I’m not consistent with training and also diet. What is your aim for 2019? Get my running back to where it was a few years back, sub 5 hour half, perhaps Busso full! Ge tdown to a good weight, but focus on habits rather than an actual number. Most hated training session? All of them this year! Most loved training session? I did a 6 hour gravel Audax ride around Boonah in SE QLD during winter and despite breaking the rear derailleur on my bike while riding, it still was a gorgeous ride and training session.

    Tyres

    Wwere they brand new tyres when you started tht race or near new? Or were they well worn prior to the race? Strange!! I used to use SPD in triathlon, but switched to SPL-SL later on. As I understand it, you won't get as much power or contact area on the pedals with SPD compared to SPD-SL. So any time saving in transistion from using SPD will be offset by time lost due to not being able to pedal as efficiently with power using SPD-SL style pedals. Saying all of that, I'm fully aware that I could be 100% wrong.

    Power Meter Recommendations

    I use a FSA powerbox (a rebranded Power2Max) and its dual-sided and performed well. Only issue is the annoying BB standard that you might have to change over. However, its far cheaper than some others.

    What training did you do today...

    Pool set of around 2K INcreasinly I've noticed that I keep having uncontrollable sneezing for some time after swimming. Is it possible to develop an issue with chlorine? It never used to happen - and now happens all the time - and I'm swimming in different pools as well.

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    2014 for me…first one was Kingy Tri, sprint distance. Since then have done 8 x Sprint 2 x Olympic 1 x Duathlon 4 x 70.3s (one as a team).

    Gateway motorway bike track to Redcliffe

    Ahh right. To be fair though, the replacement path they've put in is literally the other side of the motorway...a 30 second ride away from the old one.
