    Training solo

    Hi all. Due to time and location constraints I'm forced to do all my session's solo. I'm just trying to get some tips on how to stay accountable particularly during the hard or long sessions, and was wondering if anyone has any pieces of advice for the completely solo grind. Thanks

    650 vs 700 wheels for TT Bike

    Hi all, I recently purchased a second-hand trek speed series concept 7 second hand XS size which has 650 wheels. When I brought it the previous owner stated "Trek only produce XS Frame with 650 wheels otherwise impossible to produce correct geoemetry," which I'm not discounting, however I'm 167cm tall F, so pretty average height, was wondering if it would be possible to to put 700 rims and tyres on at all, or would that put me at too much risk of toe-overlap what not. Just wondering if anyone's had any experience or what not. Thanks

    Garmin 735 Dead

    Just happened to me (literally just got the replacement unit from Garmin this AM-it did take a turnaround of roughly 3 weeks). Died randomly 1 week before Geelong after having it for 18 months (also purchased from pushy's who couldn't do anything). Will hopefully get at least another 18 months out of this watch before upgrading to a different one. I've been happy with the service from Garmin.

    Mornington/Frankston Cycle

    Hey guys. Just moved down to the Frankston/Mornington area and am keen to get out on the bike. I've had a look at the Nepean between Frankston/Mornington but am not too keen on that. Looking for some pretty quiet route recommendations (where I'm from I usually just ride on very, very quiet roads where only people who live on them drive typically). Any recommendations/routes/groups would be appreciated. Cheers!

    Turbo trainer recommendations

    Hi all. Relatively new here. I'm looking for any first time turbo recommendations. Don't really have any preferences between fluid/mag/direct etc. Would welcome any recommendations/advice from users. Looking at a price limit of around $400-500 for a first time which probably puts the direct drives out of budget. Thanks guys

    Bendigo running clubs/groups

    Hi all. Moving to Bendigo for 6 months placement and looking to join a running group/club in Bendigo to maintain fitness (won't really have time for competing). Wondering if anyone knows any groups/clubs, preferably training in the morning as a bonus as well? Cheers
  9. Just wondering if anyone has actually gained any benefits from doing any form of strength work, ie. speed, injury prevention etc. I'm currently doing 2 sessions per week (full body), but am not sure if I will gain any triathlon benefits? cheers

    Training rut

    Hi guys, So this year I've gotten into a bit of a training rut, and my training has been steadily declining, until I imagine I might get to a point where I don't train. I'm a medical student, and this year particularly I'm finding it incredibly difficult to fit into training. Any advice from someone with a very hectic schedule? I've always had the motivation, but now I'm prioritizing everything else ahead....
