  1. Trainer Road indoor cycle programs vs Training Peaks

    For TrainerRoad, yes - unless its now changed from when I first subscribed. TR and Wahoo kickr is my setup - all but one of my weekly rides are on the trainer.
  2. 9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    That’s good - my shoe got stuck in the mud a couple of years ago!
  3. Got 404s, what next?

    Glad you’ve raised this FP, because I’ve been struggling with this for a while. The cost doesn’t bother me, but just when I think I’m all keen to buy a disc, I chicken out and say to myself “FFS just train more”. It is quite a nice feeling passing someone in a race who has a disc too! The Customer is the first person I’ve ever heard say they would rather not have one (having had one), so that’s interesting. Where I’m at currently personally is I’d like to hire/borrow a disc for a race (and practice a bit beforehand) to see what it’s like - I’m thinking of doing that for the Port Mac 70.3 in May as it is also hilly. If it makes a difference to me then I might make the purchase. If not then I’ll stick to my HED Jet 6 (similar to your 404’s).
  4. Trainer Road indoor cycle programs vs Training Peaks

    Trainer road program is pretty good - I used the IM one for Port Mac training a couple of years ago. You’ll get plenty of cycling done.
  5. IMNZ 2018

    Nice one iFoz, love that Taupo is still your favourite despite the challenges.
  6. Geelong 70.3

    Nice work, great race and yes the sub 5 hours is definitely there. Agree with Zed, more running will always be of benefit.
  7. IMNZ 2018 - First Full

    Fantastic, well done and great write up. Love reading these.
  8. Mool meetup

    Easy ride with a mate this morning - wind was blowing the rain so hard that I couldn’t see as I didn’t have sunglasses with me and had to tuck in behind him. Im happy to race in whatever conditions but I do hope it calms down as there could be carnage tomorrow.
  9. Is 70.3 a brand or distance?

    Doesn’t Ironman also brand Olympic distance as 5150 (or is it 5i50)?
  10. 9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    I’m in for the kids race (70.3 or the half - I don’t know what to call it now!).
  11. Light headed

    Yep, me too. Also sometimes get it walking up stairs - I do think I need to drink more water though, so it could be I’m not hydrated enough.
  12. Apologies

    That’s not good mate. ITB?
  13. Mooloolaba wave starts

    Do you mean premium mates wave? There’s one that goes 4th wave after the paratriathletes. The other mates wave I think is the cheaper version.
  14. April and May Races

    Also the bike course is 36km, at least it was the last time I did it. They are pretty laid back in Byron Bay.
  15. My Fitness PAL

    This was pretty much me, and I found it good for that. Once I got the eating habits under control then I found I didn’t need it. As Goughy says, it stares you right in the face!
  16. Ten Questions with Roxii

    Great write up, thanks.
  17. Height & weight

    I’m a bit shorter at 175cm. Race weight is around 72-73kg. I would say I am more heavier set too - it requires me to be serious about diet to get to race weight. If I even look at a beer I put weight on.
  18. Mooloolaba Tri

    Yep - in for #10. Arrive Friday sometime. Love to catch up, post race might be hard as will have to head back to Brisvegas.
  19. Take the bike?

    I was there with the family in first week of January and did a few runs. Humidity is ridiculous, but that aside there are heaps of running tracks - you could ride them too but lots of tourists/pedestrians. Packing a bike sounds like a royal pain, I wouldn’t do it.
  20. HOTW

    Agree - it wouldn’t be called Hell of The West anymore if the date change - has to be hot.
  21. 2018 Goals-what are they ?

    Nice - buying/selling and moving house can be so stressful, plus all the cr@p that accumulates over the years! So the new Canyon arrives when?
  22. Trannies Strava Page

    TrainerRoad also does it Ex - just need to pair your speed/cadence sensors to the device you’re using. Same with heart rate if you want to track that.
  23. Trannies Strava Page

    Some intense analysis going on here.
  24. Open Water Swimming

    Yes, what Cranky and Ironman Foz said - and also practice duck diving under waves and swimming through, as getting out past the breaks is often a challenge in big surf. Maybe also change the mental focus during the swim - instead of worrying about the waves or what’s lurking beneath, try to concentrate on the buoys and make that the focus. I still remember that from Nippers as a kid.
