    70.3 World Championships in South Africa

    I'm really interested to know how how these guys run that quick. I get it they train quite a lot. When I was a younger whipper snapper and was the fittest i've ever been, I managed an 85 minute 21.1k - FRESH. 1st place in 2018 Sydney Half marathon was a 1:05, given its probably a hillier course than what was at the world champs. In that training prep I was doing 1K intervals at around 3.30-3.45 and was absolutely cooked at the end of it. At first I thought it may have been Jan's stride, but then again Gomez is quite short. These guys are absolute machines!!!!

    Smashed Bikram last night - man, I've never felt better than how I do after a bikram session, I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Swimming in Sydney CBD

    ABC pool doesnt open until 1st September, if you are there before then, and staying near hyde park, your best bet is Cook + Phillip which is indoor

    I actually enjoyed the run today, just wanted to go around in 70 mins to retain my red group start. Crossed the line at 68 mins, after feeling a slight calf / top of achilles tear at the 4K mark and had to stop for a little bit. Lots of nice hills, wasnt as difficult as last year Hopefully this is the start I need for WS70.3, and Blackmores half marathon. I also think I need some new shoes, I'm currently running in Nike Flyknit Racers

    Is there much benefit on an 11 speed VS 10 speed?

    Hey All, I'm not too bike techy, so I thought I'd ask a question. I have a Quintana Roo with a SRAM Rival Groupset - with a 10 speed cassette / 11-25 tooth / 50-34 chainring (I think) I have a training tyre that I want to use on the trainer rather than my racing ones. I can get a Shimano 105 5800 11 speed for $50, which seems cheap enough. Will that work on the new tyre and with my existing setup on the TT bike? Or would I be better upgrading the cassette on my TT bike, and moving the SRAM existing to the training tyre? HELP!
