  1. Are you signed up to zwiftpower toolish? There’s some good info on there about where you are and you get an ‘almost c’ notation next to your grade when pushing the limit.
  2. Naut, I hadn’t read this thread as thought it was im virtual racing. But zwift related which I am absolutely loving lately. I’ve mainly been doing the group rides in tour for all, will ride the surrey hill version probably on Saturday. I’ve been having a go at the SRAM send it races. Every Tuesday evening for another 6 weeks, think 6:30 for women and 7:10 for men. It’s open to all categories and aimed at aussies, think some of the national pro teams are involved. It’s one of the most horrible 30-40 minute experiences known to man
  3. Thanks gplama for your notes on Apple TV with recent update. Was doing my head in! I liked the previous version better where devices could be shared between Apple TV and linked through companion. That way if phone runs out of battery, I was only dropping hr.
  4. I haven’t changed it from 50% either. From what I’ve read they’ve done that not so much to make the ups easier but the downs harder. As in most people are using the trainer for a workout, if trainer set to 100% then you’d spin out the downhill. The other thing to watch out for is getting dropped from groups on the downhill. With settings less than 50% then the roads are getting pretty ‘flat’ so higher resistance downhill, hence higher power output possible. Uphill speed is determined by w/kg (must be relative to gradient though?) so it doesn’t matter what setting your trainer is, might mean you don’t need a granny gear up the alpe or yes the dreaded radio tower. I only just make it up at default settings!

    It’s even less due to overlapping circles? 🤔

    Completely agree with this. And they had a second chance after seeing the impact in China a couple of months ago. It was obvious China had a plan when they could build their hospitals so quickly.

    Happy to report cov negative. What a waste of isolation 😀

    Yeah I have thought that but fark it’s a big call to drink the kool aid. Or you want to get it towards the end when the medical response has had plenty of practice. You just don’t want to get it at the same time as everyone else.
  9. Similar for our accommodation. No refund unless someone else books it that weekend. If available on rescheduling date then we can move booking. Imagine hkw fit we’ll be by race day! Hopefully it’s not in summer...

    I’ve been acting as if I’ve got it, so following advice to self isolate as much as possible. Yes I’ve been in some of the other rooms. I haven’t been coughing or sneezing so I’d presume transmission would be limited. If I’ve got it, yes I’ll be in the spare room as much as possible. My wife and I are both 35, we have an 18 month old daughter. While we’re all in a lower risk category, I’d rather not tempt fate. Why would I willingly infect others?
  11. Really all you need is a gps watch then swim bike run can all be recorded and uploaded. Fantastic for those in remote locations. Bike and run could either be indoors or out. Effectively a mass participation solo training day with some incentive to go as fast as you can. Events and races are huge on zwift. I look forward to certain events on there. I’d find a way to do a virtual race. Maybe not iron distance. Glow sticks could attract the wrong kind of attention.

    Plenty of small wineries that will be doing it tough. And craft breweries, distilleries. Get online, support the little guys. Unless of course deliveries are affected, but wouldn’t have thought so.

    I got tested on Friday, waiting for the results which will probably come tomorrow. Showed some of the symptoms late Thursday - really bad fever, mild headache, mild sore throat, body aches. I rang the docs on Thursday and let them know that I’d done #mootri, there was a confirmed case but advice was it was extremely unlikely. Friday morning, pretty much non existent fever, mild aches, very sore throat, but really if corona wasn’t around I would have contemplated going to work. I thought about cancelling doctor but went anyway, mainly due to throat. After chatting between themselves for a while they decided to send me for testing on the triathlon link, just to be sure. There’s a dedicated Pathology lab set up for corona testing which I went to, with no booking needed apart from referral. What surprised me was the lack of protection they had. I was wearing a mask, but no one in reception was. They had no other protective equipment or clothing. They were all young, probably mid to late 20’s. There were 3 pens in a basket on the counter. At the doctors the situation was being taken much more seriously. It was the same people administering the test, which thankfully they did wear mask, gloves and I think gown. But the lack of care in the reception / waiting area astounded me and was in stark contrast to how the doctor surgery was operating. So here I sit in self isolation (spare room) feeling mostly ok but with really sore throat, slight headache and tiredness. And bored. Have been out to play with and pat the dog, which has been a somewhat saviour. Good news is we’ve plenty of date loaf, and the lions are about to flog the hawks. At least I can watch it in peace.....
  14. Good on them for trying something new. Think they’ll partner with Zwift (or similar) or try for some market share in that space? Virtual racing may become much more common after this. A new alternative. Bit like working from home, I expect this may change the face of how some business operates, and some new innovations
  15. Thinking I’ll sign up to sunny coast tomorrow. With all the winter races ‘postponed’, pretty sure it will be in hot demand. May not go ahead either, who knows.
