  1. Don't think so. A few people I know are doing their normal times. One friend who is doing her first IM usually swims 55 for a half and she has done 1.32 . I spoke to her on Monday and she was hoping for just under 2 hrs.
  2. Ch 7 have been doing the weather crosses from there this morning. Good to see the race is getting some air time on free to air tv. Weather looks amazing

    Ash Barty

    And Dylan Alcott for his first French Open win.
  4. Mat entered Roth last year but had to withdraw because he got the Survivor gig.
  5. Hope he has done more training than what he has put on Strava, if not he is in serious trouble.

    Port - Race Day

    I was but didn’t stay long. Not many people there
  8. I had quite a few friends running this year, a couple are right up the pointy end. 20 degrees at the start which is warm. They were all sweating buckets by the time they got to the road which is about 8km, the humidity was the highest it's been for years. Most of the top runners were all 15 mins slower than they should be so it looks like conditions have played a huge factor.

  11. I was answering his question about charting trends and pointing to the fact that they are pretty accurate.
  12. Yes. I had this happen recently and had to wear a monitor for 24 hours. My doctor told me the watches are pretty accurate and I should wear mine 24 x 7. I also have a friend who works at a gym and just before Xmas a guy working out had a heart attack. When the paramedics arrived their monitors showed exactly the same HR reading as the guy's Garmin.

    Summer Storms

    Been insane. Not just one storm but two or three on some days. Yesterday we had hail twice, the second time was worse than the first. A friend of mine has had no power since Saturday nights apocalypse. On a positive note, the BOM has been almost spot on every time (except for the one on Saturday night) so we have had plenty of warning.
  14. Jose Mourinho is available
  15. Zoggs. Happened to a couple of us at squad, lenses get more scratched with each use.
  16. Baby shampoo scratched my goggles, anyone else had this problem?
  17. Well done Al, I too was following you online on the day. I notice the two guys in front just aged up as well, did you know them? The 2nd guy won his age group at Roth this year. Both had incredible bike times. I'm sure you'll give it another crack next year, good luck
  18. Every ironman awards top 10. Pros have to make a living .
  19. I switched from the pc to the iPad and it has been fine. No idea why but pc keeps dropping out
