  1. Eastbay. Best as shipping is good price
  2. When I consume too much protein the next day I feel sluggish because I not consumed enough carbohydrate. Carbohydrate should be the focus when training and protein when recovering. If you train during the day consume mainly carbohyrate with some protein and then recovery in your evening meal with protein from animal sources mainly if not vegtarian.
  3. Have been anaemic before. Had blood tests done every 2 weeks for 2 months. Went on liquid iron. Ate Kangaroo for Iron. Fodd combining is important too. Eat Red Meat with orange juice. Avoid eating any cheese or dairy when consuming high iron foods as calcium effects the absorption of iron. Breakfast eat strawberries with your cereal. Hope this helps
  4. Did anyone else not receive their race pack in the mail? I am doing my 7th Marathon for the year
  5. Anyone seen the latest footage/pictures of Chris McCormack? He is looking lean and mean for Kona. Possibly the leanest I have seen him for the world champs. Apparently has used short races in his preparation this year. SO this could be the year we see the Macca/Crowie showdown on the run.
  6. Double Runs are great. Try this one AM - Do long run 90mins to 2hrs PM - 30mins as 10mins Easy then 30sec Hard/30secs Easy 60sec Hard/60sec Easy 90secs Hard/90secs easy 60sec Hard/60sec Easy 30sec Hard/30secs Easy Cool Down to bring up 30mins This teaches you get your legs turning over when tired/fatigued
  7. I would like to say to anyone out who whinges about things that are trivial try doing what Shane Crawford just did (run from Adelaide to Melbourne) not for himself but to aid the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. I commend him on his effort. To put yourself through both the physical and pychological pain that he suffered is an inspiration to me and I would to propose to trannies/fitness addicts to dontate to the cause. Well Done Shane, have a well earned rest

  9. I would like to congratulate Joe Gambles on his victory at Ironman Wisconsin, his first Ironman. Time: 8:39 with a 2:54 marathon Great Effort from a guy from a small country town in Tasmania. Great to see him doing so well.
  10. Any Trannies would like to do the UPSTREAM CHALLENGE on November 13. It is a 50km Run/Walk from Docklands to Donvale raising money for a charity of your choice (from the charities listed) Individual and Team Events options I am aiming to complete it as a run as an Individual. Anyone keen to join me?
  11. Yes have had and found that doing the following helped with it. DOUBLE LEG CURL ON WAY UP - THEN SINGLE LEG ON THE DOWN USING A REASONABLY HEAVY WEIGHT. The theory behind this is the downward motion of control the weight helps stretch out the hamstring near the buttock, plus also increase stability and strength to what is a weak area. Walking lunges is also another way of strengthening the area. Myofascial release on the foam roller also assists with loosening up the area
  12. A 1kg drum cost 99.50 and free delivery. If you send me a message I can email a code for @ 20% discount to be used by October. My email address is garwood3000@yahoo.com.au, just send your name and your trannies name
  13. Ascend Sport Protein Recovey is great for after tough workouts, can mix with water or milk. I mix it in my porridge after morning sessions.
  14. If you actualy read the ad says looking for around $200 (no set price). I never mentioned to you that another member had shown interest just another buyer as have advterised elsewhere, and when mentioned that had someone interested they made me an offer. If have upset the boat I am sorry and only looking for the best price I can get for the item. I apologise to any trannies I have upset but there have been plenty of you on here that have done wrong by me as well and i just accept it and get on with life.

    7 Weeks to Kona

    Crowie, Macca showdown finally will occur, with darkhorse Andreas Raelart after his performance at Ironman Europe, he can run off the strong bike which is the key to winning Kona. Crowie might be due for some mechanical problems but suffice to say his is too professional to let anything else upset him. Macca will put all his eggs into one basket and will put everything on the line for victory (he will take a no prisoners approach) 1 Macca 2 Crowie 3 Raelart
  17. I performed a 2hr Elliptical Trainer Session this morning to replace my long run due to an achilles injury. I wore my Suunto T6 so was able to gauge a heart rate normal to what my long run HR would have been. Information regarding the session is as follows: Time: 2 hours Distance: 30km Avge HR 125 Max HR 137 Level used on elliptical - 7 for 10mins then remainder between 9 and 13 varying cadence but did 25mins changing level up every 5mins while maintaining same speed. KJs burnt - 1142 via Suunto Machine said - 1350 Just posting this for some interested parties Have found the elliptical a good workout for injured achilles as with my injury it is the only form that doesnt stress it.
  18. Think of doing a marathon on a Elliptical Trainer to raise funds for a cause. Anone interested in joining me?
  19. I used to compete in a the Burnie 10 in Tasmania and used to ride from home to the events, generally always a headwind and aim to arrive just before start time. The ride is 70-80km depending on which route I took. Every year I ran quicker than a normal 10km race in which I had ran in 4 weeks prior by about 45secs-75secs quicker. (34:40-35:15) I think this is due to two factors, the body is throughly warmed up and phychologically you go in with a more relaxed approach as you are a little fatigued and place less emphasis on running a certain time, so you relax and enjoy more rather than strain yourself.
  20. Have been diagnosed with oedema of kager's fat pad. Anone experienced this? WHat training can or did you to when you had it? What treatment did you use?
  21. Any Trannies out there know what treatment and training can be done with an inflammation of the fat pad under thendon sheath of the achilles tendon.
