What caught your eye today?

Recommended Posts

Out on a long trail run, doing the section around Enogerra dam, this guy is running towards me, bare chest, swim hat on, paddles on his hands, swim buoy clipped to his waist, looks like a viking (big beard).  So after the initial wtf, thought he could be training for this https://otilloswimrun.com/races/hvar/

It was hot out there today so no idea how he could run with a swim hat on 😂

I reckon that would be a blast. Any tips or info on where to find swimruns?

FP - got any info on these ?

Did the sydney race two years ago. Wad awesome. Was entered in this years race too (last weekend in april) but partner had to withdraw.

 

Totally dfferent atmosphere to a triathlon - closer to a parkrun with people out there to have fun rather than be super competitive. For example at one swim exit there was a queue to usethe only pair of stairs, but no one was getting agro about have to wait for 30 seconds or so.

 

It was nice to do a multisport event right in the heart of the city again.

Had a nice close up look at a dirt ground full of leaves, logs and rocks when I decided to faceplant the MTB off a 1m high bridge in the skills park today while clipped in.

 

All good though, just some scrapes and bruises!

They've had one in Sydney the past couple of years.

Because swimruns is another series, they have a couple in New Zealand. Another friend is doing one there next weekend.

And as mentioned above Otillo, is the European race series.

A huge nest of red backs under the lip of a pot. I reckon about 50 of varying size, a couple of massive parents and an unopened egg sac.

My blood test results after a recent bout of salmonella. Farken hell, my blood profile is up the dick to quote Muzz (wolf man). I'm in a world of hurt leading up to challenge Melbourne. Common sense ( and the wife) are telling me a call to SME360 maybe needed.

When drafting in the swim I tend to swim on the hip rather than on the feet. 

The females started behind us today, so I was jumping on the quicker ones as they were overtaking us. 

One girl came up beside me so I moved over and sat on her hip. we were swimming in synch and both breathing the same way. But she had her cozzies wedged right up her crack. So every other strike I was getting a face full of cheek.

certainly distracted me from my cramping calves.  :lol:
