    UCI Worlds

    Watching the live feed at the moment. Team Ireland ought to ask for a refund from the kit designer. Looks like Kermit racing in speedos.

    If you've done a 13 hour Ironman tell me why.

    I’m the eternal optimist and still believe I have a sub 13:00 in me. But history proves otherwise. Done 4, all over 13. Lack of consistent training usually the killer. Last IM Was Cairns 2016, dumb pacing (gees I feel great, let’s lift the pace) on run meant I walked a LOT and turned a likely PB into my slowest yet.

    Froomey banned from tour (and then not banned)

    Guilty or not, the timing is piss poor a week out from the race start. It’s not like this has snuck up on them from left field.

    Data and Running Shoes

    I’ve been in Brookes Adrenalin for a decade. Not getting injured so sticking with them. If I had to change would be a PITA but I might use something like this to point me in the right direction. I don’t do the mileage to need to get a new pair often, so it’s always a well thought out exercise. Kinda like voting, I go in with an open mind but usually come out with the same result.

    Plantar fasciitis

    I had it a number of years ago. No real issues now. Did a lot of strengthening and stretching, lots calf raises. Continue to do these daily after riding or running. Losing a few kg helped reduce the load on it as well, although I’m hardly a lightweight.

    Ironman Store Online

    Yep, tried to order a bag but when I got to the checkout I was told it couldn’t be delivered to Aust. This was from one of the many emails I get from them promoting stuff. Sent of a complaint but was surprised not to get a response 😄

    Disc wheels - yes/no?

    For the uninitiated, where do you see the difference in technique when riding them?

    Seat height, TT to Roadie?

    I raise by 6mm. If you move your seat forward for TT position the seat height will be less. Dig out the old trigonometry textbook 😀

    Giro d'Italia - Tipping Comp

    Just realised that there'll be no broadcast on SBS. Arrrrrgh!!! Is there a tech friendly way to watch and record the broadcast? Sent from the mobile client - Forum Talker

    World record - One for the sleuths - the 80's/90's

    I've got a slower run, but WAY past 10 hour finish. No record. Sent from the mobile client - Forum Talker

    Bike fit - Melbourne east

    +1 for Stuart. Had the fit a few weeks ago. Much improved comfort levels and quite an imformative process.

    Why do you/don't you wear Hoka's?

    I've looked but not tried Hokas particularly for the reduced DOMS that they are supposed to help with. I'm a slow and heavy runner and have been in Adrenelines last 8 years or so. Have avoided any significant injuries so I'm sticking with what works for the present. Sent from my GT-I9507 using Tapatalk

    Running Streak Ends

    Amazing physical resilience. Especially considering the significant number of training km in the legs. I assume he didn't just rock up to a race saying "I'll give this marathon thing a crack" and proceed to punch out a 2:10. Sent from my GT-I9507 using Tapatalk

    When did you last do an Iron Distance?

    Cairns 2016. Thinking probably Kangaroo Island this year. Sent from my GT-I9507 using Tapatalk

    Outside assistance

    The simplest solutions are often the best. I'm gonna use this. Sent from my GT-I9507 using Tapatalk
