    Advice for first 70.3

    Calf Strain

    (Sports Physio opinion) It's often the case that bike is fine as there isn't really a high load on the calf. Most injuries are soleus rather than gastroc For return to run I normally like to see: painfree stretch (bent knee and straight knee), painfree hilly brisk walk, painfree hop. If it's been a longer term issue there are some strength benchmarks to hit as well.

    Fluid Intake and Cycling Performance

  4. I’ve seen four through work over the last 12 years. Have also been in theatre to observe the surgery for the condition Three had surgery. Two of those (both good triathletes) went well. The third was an unusual one in that it was common iliac rather than external iliac. This athlete returned to recreational cycling but not previous level (national level +). The fourth person (ex elite cyclist) didn’t have the surgery and just treated with activity modification. It’s a reasonably low risk procedure (but certainly not risk free as Mel H has spoken about publicly) although you are often quite sore for the first few weeks due to the trauma to the muscle to access the artery. Rehab for you might be a bit longer as it sounds that you are deconditioned as a side effect of the condition. the two vascular surgeons we use in Melbourne are Roger Bell and Bill Campbell. if you have any other questions feel free to ask here or send me a message
  5. Ps hard to blame the athlete here but it’s obviously not fair
  6. IM Argentina has just started after a delay due to cold weather (8-9 C air temp, not sure on water temp). Swim now 1.9km. Tim and Rinny racing

    Terrenzo should go about 7.55. What a comeback. Wurf likely to break 8 as well

    Busso 2018

    Wurf caught by 30.7km but still running head to head with Bozzone 2km later. Could be a great finish

    30 sec from Wurf to Bozzone at 27.3km, pass likely within a couple km
