  1. 😄 First run set for me in a bit...hopefully I can keep on making them!
  2. That's fair enough - but he doesn't really offer any solution other than "do something sustainable".
  3. Great read Kevin. Good to have you training with SBTC as well!
  4. Same here. Last year during a period of incredible family and relationship stress I put on 10kg in a month. I didn't even think I was eating that poorly at the time - though I ceased all exercise. I have been unable to move it, despite eating well. I know stress increases cortisol levels and that makes it difficult to move weight but I often wonder if stress is an underrated part of the weight gain/loss equation.
  5. Fire up that XLS again for sure!
  6. Usually I'd suggest Kingscliff There is some awesome riding through the hinterland, but some of its on fire at the moment 😕
  7. Agree. There is often a heap of bad riding in triathlon. Possibly may be due to the rise in windtrainer training. It's kinda funny considering how important the bike is to triathlon that more triathletes don't invest time in basic bike handling and maintenance skills. The amount of people I know who don't know how to change a tyre is a bit astounding! I think there may be benefit for some athletes to try do a bit of offroad / single track or even crit racing. Just so they're a bit more agile on the bike and learn how to through it around / anticipate changes.
  8. Hey Goughy. Actually it was a fairly tough ride given the amount of wind that was about - the climb back up the range after the INSANE descent (where one could sit at 80kph for about 10k). was hellish. Basically a gale coming straight at you. Many times I thought I'd get blown off the bike. As for the other parts of the ride...it was a bit 'meh'. Didn't think it was well organised to be honest. At one point they let 'classic' cars (think old holdens etc) on to the viaduct and they ended up driving through the bike packs (so much for closed roads). The ride itself was fairly devoid of any interesting things to look at - unless you like looking at farms I guess. Heard there were a whole bunch of crashes as well though I didn't see any myself.
  9. Looks pretty interesting! Costly though... https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/09/wahoos-kickr-bike-with-built-in-climb-everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know.html
  10. Went out on my first run in aaaagggess. Kicking off my Tweed Coast Enduro campaign and need to put some serious kms in to get back to where I was a few years back.
  11. I have the newer version of the radar and TBH I absolutely love it. It is great tool for when riding solo - particularly on lonely largely empty roads
  12. How much fibre are you eating the morning or or the night before you run?

    Wurf watch

    Can't you arguably get a much better and consistent training session indoor than outside? I mean, no coasting, no stopping your set for cars or traffic lights etc etc.
  14. TBH I'd just wait and let a trained professional give you the results
  15. So this is not a story about how Taylor Swift made her pop masterpiece 1989 then?
  16. Well, my budget is as cheap as possible which is probably not enough for a trek. Thought I'd put up the post anyway to see what I might be able to get. Yeah, they are overpriced compared to the competition but they're the only ones that will work well with my bike fit Whats this bupa discount you speak of?
  17. Hi all I'm keen to get a Trek Speed Concept (large) second hand but in rideable condition. Ultegra mechanical or DI2 preferred - 11 speed too. Need it as close to stock spec as possible (e.g no cut seatpost). Based in Brissy so if anyone has one or knows of someone who does have one who wants it gone, let me know! Thanks! Daz
  18. I'm a big fan of the BOSE's but found some issues with their longevity.
  19. I used to play mixed netball at a fairly competitive social level for quite some time. Basically ended up with rooted ankles after a while and took up the comparatively far more safer running (then tris). I also played both soccer and rugby during my years. but never had as many injuries as I did with netball. People might think its 'tame' but its often has far more contact than soccer, thats for sure!
  20. Has anyone ever considered there could be more to his style than just a "form" thing? Does he have one leg longer than the other? Does he have genetic issues with his hip? Is there something else at a musclar-skeletal level that prevent him from running like Lange?
  21. I thought he looked fine in some parts of the video. Regardless, why would Lionel care? Even with that apparent "poor form" he still came second and qualified for Kona off the back of 6 weeks run training. I find it somewhat funny that we sit around saying his form is terrible when he accomplished far more in triathlon than most of us could dream of! (me especially!). It's kinda like saying Einstein's handwriting is terrible so we should basically throw his theory of relativity in the bin.

    Nice 70.3

    For those going and for those who can listen to Triathlon Taren - he did an interesting interview with pro Rudy Van Berg - who grew up in Nice and really knows the bike course. http://triathlontarenpodcast.libsyn.com/2019-im-703-world-championship-scouting-report-with-rudy-von-berg The bit from 27mins - 37 min discussed the bike and run course in detail. Rudy definitely recommends a TT bike!
  23. You got a link to those highlights? Wonder if Sanders benefited from some adequate rest for once!
