Edit: CTL is 63 less than this time last year.... 😳😳😳 

It's amazing how fast it can fall too.

I was 100 6 weeks ago.  Now at 75.

Need to build it back to 100 for Geelong.

Yeah bloody oath. 

Mine dropped away heaps when I stopped Zwifting and sold my P1 pedals. TSS only calculated on HR now.

40min jog while Mooj is at squads. 

Avg Pace 6:14 

Avg HR 118 - saw 123 once or twice. The effort felt above "easy" so I will slow down a bit. Capping run HR at 120bpm to rebuild my low end running endurance.

90 minutes on zwift yesterday morning and 50odd minutes running getting blown around in the wind yesterday arvo, but best of all, I managed to pack my towel for the lunch swim today!

Edit: 4km swim at lunch

First run in two weeks. Corporate Cup in Sydney. Great to see a lot of old Trannies out there; Rocket, Mr Flower, Smitty - even Mtb Boy. I am still  sweating after finishing 30 minutes ago. Bloody humid.

Went to go for my first dive after cyclone damo last weekend, turns out a yacht has decided to make its self at home on my dive spot permanently, must have broke its mooring and sunk at my existing spot, so will give it a few days and let some fishes find themselves in there Before I get in and have a explore.  
 

so I came home and did some efforts on Zwift for an hour or so.

Have only run once in 2 weeks because of it....

Feel an obsession coming on 

Uh oh

Best of luck with that.  Zwift is addictive AF...

So 3/4 way through my swim yesterday - which was going great - I got the worst calf cramp I've ever experienced. So bad I had to immediately stop and get out. I then couldn't walk properly and had to hire a scooter to get home. 

It's still very sore today and I'm limping. I've had cramps before swimming but never this bad! I'm stretched and rolled it but no dice. 

Wondering if its possible to pull your calf swimming?

I did do a particularly heavy day for me yesterday with some threshold running in the morning. Likely means I should run and swim on the same day.

Zwift has been my saviour during all this rain in Brisbane. Have been putting solid time into it and it's great. They've really made some great improvements since I last heavily used it in 2017 - particularly the new Watopia routes.

Is there a trannies zwift group?

Might have carried tightness into the session from previous day and hurt it pushing off the wall.

Sounds about right - it hit me like a shotgun blast about 15 metres down the lane.

I wasn’t using it enough.  The weather with exception to today, have been fantastic here and I prefer to ride outdoor than inside.  
 

I ride a bike because I enjoy riding. Not sitting inside.  
 

crits twice a week have been basically a zwift session anyway with the added bonus of winning cash.

Went out to do last long ride before IMNZ and two punctured tubulars later ended up being expensive short ride. 
The joys of training in full race bike kit. but at least better puncturing now than in the race.

As I pointed out to the wife a upgraded wheel set would offset the running cost.

Is there a program where I can ride the Kona bike course? 

After watching "Lionel thinks too much" ride it on YouTube I was wondering if there was a virtual version?

No real training, but after having my doc, knee specialist & physio telling me to limit activity to 6000 steps a day, and trying to keep to it over the past 6 months, my 20,000+ today, most with either a lawn mower or wheelbarrow in front of me has left me feeling like I've done a full IM.

I'm absolutely stuffed. And doing it with 32 degrees, and high humidity, I'm 3.5kg lighter than I was this morning, even after drinking 5 600ml bidons of cold water & about 1.5 litres of Pepsi Max throughout the day.

Maybe these double scotches will help rehydrate me.

Got out on the bike early this morning to explore. I knew about the bikeway under the Riverside Expressway but didn't really know where it went. I also knew how to drive to Mt Coot-tha, but had never got there by bike, so last night I put a route together, loaded it into the Garmin and away I went. Definitely learned a few shortcuts now that I know what the roads are like, but did about 54km from door to Coot-tha to door. That fly-over from Sylvan Road-ish to the Botanical Gardens is mega. 

Also, the whole way up the back climb there was a guy on a MTB who just maintained a gap of about 100m up the road. I didn't actively chase him but he was a bit of a carrot the whole climb. I didn't catch him on the climb but on the rolling hills past the TV stations and it was at that point that I saw that the bastard was on an e-Bike :lol:
