  • Year of first Tri race?

  1. Normally there is a timekeeper singing out race splits at the finish line each lap. So at 300 metres, 700 metres, 1100 metres. The finish time might be sang out or just recorded. So working out lap splits for 6:00 mins for 1500 metres which is 4 min per kilometre pace or 1:36 per full 400 metres of track. 300 metres 1:12 700 metres 2:48 1100 metres 4:24 1500 metres 6:00 adding or subtracting 4 seconds per lap gives a 15 second overall race adjustment. I have done quite a few in my former life time as an athletics club member. Don't get sucked in by running someone else's race. Once you get the hang of these, you will find out what works for you better. Going out hard or even paced or sitting and kicking. 5000 / 10000 metres on the track is hard work 12 and half laps for the 5km and 25 laps for 10km. No place to hide.

  4. I would wait till 2016 build 2016 model in my opinion.
  5. Is it the brand new 2016 model? Plates would show 2015 build and 2016 model. I wouldn't touch it. Resale you would already of lost a year.
  6. Please note Ryde Pool is an indoor pool and splits the 50 metres into 25 metres for most of day. Example http://www.ryde.nsw.gov.au/files/assets/public/ralc/lane-availability/lap-lane-availability-21-27-dec.pdf?streamfile=true Macquarie Uni pool has an outdoor 50 metre and inside 25 metre pool. Not far way from Gladesville. Much better option.
  7. Very well brought up young lady. I'm sure Mum and Dad very proud. http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/tornados-wrath-changes-christmas-day-for-kurnell-residents-20151218-glr5fx.html

  9. Enjoyed the movie with my son. Fiirst one seen at the movies since the original came out. Saw the first one released if I remember rightly at the State Theatre, in Sydney CBD in the back row, This time, Parranatta Gold Class in 3D.
  10. So much luck for no one to injured. I hope insurance companies don't play up and not pay up.
  11. I know there is a bike path virtually just outside airport. BTW3, the 6 marathons in 6 continents have used it for their made up marathon.
  12. Free?Suitable for soft drink? I withdrew due to knee op on torn meniscus. Good luck to the best social gathering of triathletes of all shapes and sizes.
  13. No mention of Rinny's name "only bowing to last year's Ironman world champion" Sour taste there.
  14. Can't make it up if it wasn't in the rules.
