    Townsville incident

    Weird, this article says the vehicle wasn't stolen....https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-19/cyclist-hit-and-run-crime-townsville/11979378

    The tear is minor, just some concern that they can re-tear quite easily without proper care. (I've done one before years ago). It possibly is plausible - I'm going to see how I'm going at the end of March and make a call. Part of the equation is also that trying to juggle ironman and increased workload is proving somewhat troublesome. I'm trying to get double sessions done during the week and it might be making me injury prone - I possibly just odn't have enough base fitness. My performance level prior to the calf tear was "just finish" Anyway, I guess I can just see how I go and if life gets in the way I can downgrade to the half.

    Um, unsure what you'd mean by that. Calf muscle tear is a fairly debilitating injury. Anyway, considering options - thats all. I may just to consider it if the calf doesn't heal well enough.

    Cheers Peter - that's a sensible suggestion!

    Anyone know if its easy enough to downgrade from full ironman to half at Cairns? I've fudged my calf and my physio has recommended I not train for the full but the half may be doable. Since I've already invested money in accommodation and flights etc, rather not make it a totally wasted trip!
  6. Anyone been keeping an eye on Lionel's recent youtube content? It's a bit puzzling to me why he would film it, but some of it is pretty interesting - particularly regarding the diet/sweat/lactate testing.
  7. Sounds about right - it hit me like a shotgun blast about 15 metres down the lane.

    Dairy free diet?

    I've been trying to drop dairy but finding it hard. Oatmilk is quite a nice substitute. I just love milky coffee too much! Have been vego now about foru months and feel so much better generally and immediately dropped a heap of weight.
  9. Zwift has been my saviour during all this rain in Brisbane. Have been putting solid time into it and it's great. They've really made some great improvements since I last heavily used it in 2017 - particularly the new Watopia routes. Is there a trannies zwift group?
  10. So 3/4 way through my swim yesterday - which was going great - I got the worst calf cramp I've ever experienced. So bad I had to immediately stop and get out. I then couldn't walk properly and had to hire a scooter to get home. It's still very sore today and I'm limping. I've had cramps before swimming but never this bad! I'm stretched and rolled it but no dice. Wondering if its possible to pull your calf swimming? I did do a particularly heavy day for me yesterday with some threshold running in the morning. Likely means I should run and swim on the same day.
  11. I use a basic arlec I got from Bunnings. Does the trick

    Wurf watch

    Fair enough. I guess we'll see. I'm not criticising the move, I just found it slightly confusing, that's all.

    Wurf watch

    I guess I think that because he's joined a pro team in a different sport. One where you presumably will be required to train in one discipline all the time. Perhaps he'll prove me wrong - but will he keep racing ironman and provide support for team INEOS?

    Wurf watch

    This just says to me that Wurf isn't really serious about triathlon. Or perhaps that INEOS want to be a pro cycling and pro triathlon team.
  15. Craftworx wheels with higher spoke count. They'll be fine. I'm a heavy guy and I ride these all the time and have no issue. Caden wheels will also be fine for racing at higher weights. Shimano wheels also have no max weight limit.

    Wurf watch

    I think he has retired completely from pro cycling.

    Quit freaking me out!
  18. I read that as "I will hook up with you on tinder"
  19. Indoor training at home - if something needs to be done, you can get off and do it. Know some of this pain though - I'm doing my first ironman build and managing the spouse is the hardest part! She is a nightowl, but doesn't look too kindly on me heading to bed at 8:30 for a 4:30 wake up.
  20. No rest? I'd died on this plan
  21. Yeah, that's like a different language This link helps a bit...I think https://www.diversalertnetwork.org/health/heart/immersion-pulmonary-edema
  22. Speed concept users who use the standard Bontrager aero bars....how does one mount front bottles to it? Garmins? Need to get some gear on the front end?

    He's an absolute nutcase.
  24. Well it depends on your objectives. I think doing high intensity 2 hours every second day is a recipe for injury. Do a lot of low intensity but long distance and HIIT once / twice a week and you'll grow your top end speed while also not flogging yourself to death.
  25. Yep, that's what I've recently been doing during my ironman build. Run for an hour before parkrun and throw it on at the end. Works nicely though 7am still feels late for humid Brisbane.
