  1. I assume nobody is keen on Ballarat 226. I'm not, although Chuck maybe resurrecting it.
  2. Chuck, you forgot to tell Mike Reilly it was off, he was ranting and raving down at St.Kilda this afternoon wondering where everybody was. His day ended up officiating the beach volleyball tournament a suburb down in middle park. He was in full voice but will be hitting you up for his appearance fee, although I see you've got that covered from Active.
  3. I found running endurance (going not flat out but fast longer) improved after 40, although that could have been influenced by how I trained, but top end speed fell away. Then mid/late 40's both endurance and speed aspects of running started to slow. (Not being as serious doesn't help, but I factored that in) I found explosive bike speed also fell only slightly away after 40 but nothing too noticeable. I don't ride anymore (other than on the trainer) to see where I am now but suspect several rungs back. I sorta don't enjoy long bike rides any more, they just seem like they'll be boring after doing them for so long. Same with swimming.
  4. California is the most western mainland state of the USA isn't it? (Outside of Alaska)
  5. Chuck, how about making the Frankston race a qualifier to the Ballarat 226, that would go along way to justifying the prize purse you suggest.
  6. I opened this topic thinking it was a story about somebody laying a cable in some athletes pre or post race/training meal.

    I do remember you farting at the awards ceremony and it was gross!! The Customer can verify this.

    What about Wim De Doncker in the early days. OLT used to give him curry.

    The tan lines indicate either a significant time spent in budgey smugglers on the road or budgey smugglers in the solarium.

    Splitting a long run

    Paul's response is pretty good. When I was training properly (and had the time) a lunch session could be 25min run to the beach 30 min swim then 25 min run return when the weather was nice. Still 50 or so mins run but it felt harder than a 50 min straight run and therefore of more benefit to fitness/adaption. Personally, given your scenario I'd do the 45 min run (I'm assuming there are no shot cuts), swim as much as you want/need (Don't think it makes too much difference) but I'd run more than 1.35 home, perhaps 1.50 as a long run is a long run. My boundary is 1.40 for medium to long run. With all that, and I'm sure you're across it is nutrition (or drink) is most important depending upon the temperature/humidity, you'll have to improvise well after getting out of the water. If not the run home could turn pretty nasty and my times above would not be recommended. If it is Melbourne cool it's not so bad - Sydney not so. If your program allows it, a 45 min W/T aerobic session that doesn't impact your run (your fitness level will determine if that is possible) prior really piques off a good session. Cheers
