  2. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Woah! Just woke up from a 3 hour nana nap ! Maybe that classifies as a great grandma nap.. . that speed suit ruling was correct. Swim skins, if worn, may only be removed after the swim if it's a long course event. Sprint and Olympic must keep it on. The new ruling was effective December 2017. (Just read the rules ๐Ÿค“) well I managed to collect a few points. Just. not one of my favorite races and I was just going through the paces. Couldn't engage my mojo at all, even when a fellow AG competitor ran past me on the last lap it was - whatever. in short - the swim The water temperature was 29 degrees - yuck. I did manage a 3 minute improvement on the swim - yes! ! But think it was more swimming straight than faster... the bike - ran out of puff and water on the last lap of the bike. The run - At the first water station saw an ambo working on a young guy writhing on the ground packing him with ice. That was it for me. Shuffled the rest of the way. Stopping at each water station - I was in heaven - icy cold water over the head- bliss. back to sprint training ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช

    Lots ๐Ÿ˜„ I'm thinking of putting my only son on eBay to cover costs ....
  4. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    My 2 fervent hopes for tomorrow - more than the usual water tables and a hose at the turnaround : more than the usual portaloos ๐Ÿ˜œ For some reason robina has the most ridiculous lines.

    My screen shot skills are insufficient to show the 35-39 grouping. Suffice to say, there are lots!

    โ€œThe guy then had the time to stop and wind down his passenger window in order to talk to me and abuse me and basically saying he was aiming for me and that I was, I quote, โ€˜a faggotโ€™ for riding around in Lycra and I wasnโ€™t worth the air Iโ€™m breathing. Were the police called? Did he report him?

    did it for you
  8. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    I still cant work out why they have a half hour break. Plenty of capacity to break them up a bit. Then again, what do I know about running a triathlon....
  9. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    StartLists are up. Sure am glad I'm not racing in my old age group. Doubt I'd have collected a single point!
  10. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    the roads are great. I tend to be in the high 30s low 40s on the straights - the latter with a tail wind . Definitely practice the U-turns.
  11. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    35 minutes between Olympic Female 50+ and the next wave? At least I'm not going to get swamped on the swim..

    This is my opinion also.

    Couldn't resist - ya shouldn't a cut that swim short Chris !
  14. What training did you do today?

    I did an interval session on the corso this morning - sooo much more enjoyable with a group compared to solo - harder as well as it keeps you honest ๐Ÿ˜‚ Only problem was I just HAD to join them for coffee after rather than running off the bike. Cost me tho with Cranky pipping me on the morning strava board ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    My optical heart rate monitor seems pretty good. This is an example of an interval session with standing recovery - the longer drop off was when I stopped a bit longer for a quick chat with a friend.
