  1. ... so its been a while. Lots of water under the bridge and all that. First up I wanted to thank Roxxi who has been a great personal friend and there through 'stuff' that goes on in each of our lives, I still remember vividly the day he lost his home and standing on my balcony at Cronulla watching the storm go away from us across the bay and toward Kurnell. That day happened to be my sons year 6 graduation day back in 2015, so remember it well, and the ensuing damage. Roxxi has helped me out with a few things including using his esteemed status as a JP, and we seem to have similar hanklin

  4. With a bit of resurgence of the old times and the unofficial handing over Trannies from @roxii to @willie I reckon we should bump an old thread that you like or had a wealth of information. Don't go silly bumping all sorts of crap but see what you can find to bump.

  5. Costumes for beer mile! I better get my act together training wise, going well after my holidays, nailed every session last week except one night when I had to eject off the bike and stop WW3 from erupting between the kiddos. Loving the training, and am getting fitter each week. looking forward to breaking 17 hrs and writing an in-depth race report for prizna to read 😉

  7. I was pacing a mate for 4hrs and started at the back of the B group, the pacers were way off to the front and we could hardly see them although we eventually did with the million U-turns we had to do. Toilet stop at 10km(for us both), lost 90s but got it back. Toilet stop at 30km (for my mate not me) lost another 90s but we were still on target at 34km. Somewhere in the 34-35km range my mate got slammed by cramps. So for the next 7-8km he went from cramping hamstrings,to cramping calves to cramping groin. When I wasn't yelling abuse to get started again I was laughing, it was quite f

  8. Went to church with the family, which was an endurance in itself! With some encouragement from Mrs FP, I bought a little present for myself at our local craft market. The guy does loads of sporting themes and will be at Weymouth 70.3 next week.

  9. That was a hard run. Weather was perfect. Ran with the 4hr pacer's although they split and i probably foolishly went with the faster one. All went well until about 33km then someone dropped a piano on me. The last 9km was hard, just kept trying to dig for something, stay positive and hope the finish line got to me before the 4hr back pacer, cos i had nothing. Kept eating and drinking (as i got that wrong in Coastal Classic). had a few concrete pills and reminded myself why i was doing it. I got home in 3:58

  11. Hey guys, as you now know Willie is taking over the reins of Trannies going forward. Firstly I’d like to say thanks to all and sundry for the support and camaraderie this place has shown over the last 5 years while I have been at the helm. I’d also like to make special thanks to TenPints (Stu) for helping me with so much of his own time to help a computer numpty almost successfully run a Forum and website. Thanks heaps mate!!! I never really intended on running an internet forum, it was simply a time and place thing that happened. Bernie “offered” it to me after a few prior peop

  12. So I just went to pick up my steed from servicing and happened to be introduced to the lovely SunnyGirl (figured out she was a Tranny after it was mentioned she had a run in with a roo). Before I went in I was feeling pretty crap, ready to go and eat a huge donut filled with nutella and lie on the couch for the rest of the day due to a multitude of reasons. But thanks to Sunny and her lovely, welcoming demeanour I instead settled for a long black and an afternoon of tidying the house followed by a WT sesh and short run. Despite the fact she's about half my size and has much more of a triathlet

  19. Is there anywhere we can watch the Banking Royal Commission online? This seems like the most entertaining comedy in years. Commissioner: So you were charging dead people for Life Insurance Premiums? AMP Boss: Yes. Commissioner: And do you think that was wrong? AMP Boss: Yes. It's straight out of a skit isn't it?

  26. Strawberry's are a daily item in my kids school lunchboxes - they love them, and although i think we will be OK up here in the Pilbara, i still chopped them up into quarters last night for the kiddos. What knob would do such a thing and stick needles in them. i hope they are caught asap.

  27. I was one of those who had to drive back to pick up my alloy wheels the night before. Thankfully I only live 45 minutes away from Southport but I agree, making a decision like that at 8.30pm is very poor form. i was just about to head to bed. So 1.5 hours later, back in the motel and an hour earlier to my alarm so I have time to swap wheels & brakes, and to bring the other wheels back to the motel before the race. Nothing some gels couldn't help with the lack of sleep during the race, but I was dead tired later in the afternoon driving back.

  30. For sure, but the impact of bidon placement applies irrespective of whether you can hold an aero position or not. Unless there is some strange form of bidon that causes people not to be able to maintain a position on their bike? IOW there is no harm in choosing to relocate a bidon on your bike while also working on your ability to ride in a good position. These are not mutually exclusive options.

  31. As with all these things, it's simply extra data to make an informed decision. It is more helpful to quantify the differences so one can make a better informed decision on the net impact of all the factors that matter for that particular item. These are not either/or scenarios but rather ways to help people make a choice that is sensible for them. At least if you have the data you are making a decision based on that rather than guessing. Another example is choice of helmet. A particular helmet may be the most aerodynamic choice for your particular set up but it might also be l

  33. Bailed on a wind trainer session this morning. Went to breaky with the family before home and spent a few hours watching a movie and sleeping on the couch. Out on the trails this arvo for a 20k run. Dont think I am ready to back up off a 180k ride just yet. Live and learn.

  36. So I went off at 8:40 and had 60 wheels. Definitely got the worst (and best) of the wind. It was a smashing tail wind out and revolting headwind on the way back. A few short sections of cross winds where I had to brace slightly but nothing onerous - personally I found the head wind on the run way more challenging. Super day out overall and a time way better than I expected or deserved. The support on the course was awesome.

  42. Ironman should include this in their event planning. In the event of the swim being cancelled all participants will be required to complete the beer mile before entering transition and starting the bike leg. This would make the bike leg way more entertaining for the spectators. 😉

  43. I'm in. This will be my first IM working a 4 weeks / 2 weeks off roster. While on the mine site there is no pool and the exercise bikes are the old school no screen type. So I am hoping for a cancelled swim and shortened bike again this year.
