  1. Whilst attired in active-wear
  2. Is there a budgie smuggler option?
  3. I thought aerobic threshold and lactate threshold would be more useful to know than max HR for identifying HR ranges to train at for Olympic and longer tris?
  4. On the basis that my HR was relatively stable for the race I took the average figures above from (eg didn’t start the run higher, then trail off walking the last 5km), I (perhaps mistakenly) thought it should be a fair proxy for some threshold? In which case it might be a more accurate place to work training zones off than a MAF 180, less age 🤔
  5. HR is from a Garmin chest strap. What I had in mind was that, assuming an average HR from a 1/2 IM is indicative of, say, aerobic threshold, what % of that would you suggest doing most training kms.
  6. I’m interested in some ideas on working out appropriate training heart rate... So for some data to work with: The MAF formula would have me training to a 140bpm cap. My last 1/2 IM average HRs were 167 on the bike and 174 on the run. What do you think?

    Dairy free diet?

    Not to mention how good a washed rind goes with a Barossa Shiraz...

    Dairy free diet?

    My piccolo tastes sublime on full cream compared to soy, almond, etc
  9. Bored@‘s mate was out there
  10. You mean Ryf, Atkinson, etc endorse a product that is not good for you?
  11. Has you old friend been to Kona?
  12. Unless, for example, your 8 year old came into your bedroom at 4:30am (ie 1/2 an hour after you left and, depending on the mood, possibly / likely connected with you leaving the house) and woke your spouse up. Then your 6 year old wakes up at 5:30am and wakes your 4 year old in the course of doing so. So when you arrive home at 8:xx your spouse is not kindly disposed to your triathlon past-time. But it seems no-one on here has kids that do this or have very accommodating spouse or cash to burn on hired help...
  13. Anyone on this forum with little guys that typically wake up (sometimes well) before 6am?
  14. In all seriousness, “wanting it enough” is worth 2/10ths of €%]# all if of your spouse does not look favourably on you consistently carving ~15 hours out of your week. Any suggestions on managing spouse expectations?
  15. Funny how when I’ve brought up “time management” type topics before , so many of the crew who like to talk about “wanting it more”, discipline, etc (particularly those with small children and significant work commitments) conveniently neglect to mention a supportive spouse... No use setting your alarm for 4am and heading out the door (or wherever you keep indoor training stuff) if your spouse complains it wakes them, your 2 year old is waking up regularly through the night, your 5 year old always wakes at 5am leaving your spouse to consistently do the morning shift, etc...
  16. If you are driving an old car... Simultaneously drop into 2nd and pull on the handbrake 😉
  17. You might need to send AP a PM on this one...
  18. What about my woman or person who chooses not to identify as a binary gender?
  19. I used two different surgeons in Qld for successful ACL grafts and meniscus repair / trim. Getting IM Asia Pacific to accommodate an entry transfer required as a result of the injury is a different matter...
