  4. Last session of any size today doing a race check. Thanks to Foz for showing me that there are good cycling roads in Sydney! 4 hours on the bike (plus a blown tyre which only took me 8 minutes to change, a vast improvement on before) and then a 40 minute run at race pace. Feeling good, serious taper time now.

  10. Yes three in fact I know all of them. A ute driver did a U turn in front of them without looking obviously. One went up on the footpath, one hit the ute but he only cut his finger and suffered bruising but the other one went head first into the ute tray. Pretty badly hurt but she's a tough lady and she's recovering now.

  11. I heard through the grapevine that a couple of his atheletes were involved in a nasty crash. So I suspect he is a bit busy at the moment. Stay safe out there kids. That is tip No 1 from Mr Flower.

  12. Yeah, this is essentially my thinking. I wasn't going to start training 'for-Busso' just yet, but more start doing some of the foundational stuff I need to do in order to be ready to start training in a few months time. Swimming definitely needs some short term specific focus, particularly around stroke correction. I've done a session with Swim Smooth (was ok, but there wasn't enough take away stuff to really help) and I've done another one-on-one with a coach with a similar result. I feel as though I need a handful of on-on-one sessions with plenty of follow up and correction to really g

  13. I leave the planning of next season until 1 June. The only thing to do in April/ May if you're not doing Port Mac or Byron Bay, is Relax, rest the brain, keep active and stay fit(ish). I hear Olympic Distance and sprint races are the future of the sport.

  14. Get your money's worth for a triathlon in Noumea. Entry fee was about $70. Race pack is backpack, towel and tshirt. Few other random things including an M&Ms cookbook (unfortunately in French). Also pasta party for lunch today and awards dinner on Monday night.

  16. I was pretty much going to say this. Especially about the swimming. You clearly have poor technique and simply haven’t (& won’t) be getting sufficient feedback from a squad. Go for the ‘one on one’ option. With a coach that knows their stuff and can give feedback. I reckon the best swim ‘toys’ you can use is for the coach to use your iPad video camera from the pool deck so he/she can show you exactly what you are doing wrong when you are in the pool so you can get your head around what he/she is trying to say to you in real time. Sorry that you are W.A. based, I can’t recommend anyone. If

  18. I'm being coached by Michelle Duffield, maybe send her an email? Swimming wise, squads would be good, but could be a problem if you're really slow!? What about getting a video analysis done, Swim Smooth with Paul Newsome.

  23. Start with stroke correction. Either one-on-one or a small class. Then go back to squad. The coach at squad is monitoring too many swimmers to give you the attention your swimming currently requires. Cycle in a group at least once a week with faster riders, or with training partner(s) of slightly better ability. Do a large variety of races over winter, including choosing an event or two that's a new challenge for you. Have some time/performance goals in races other than Busso. Basically, do all things that I'm neglecting to do.

  27. A different Anzac day. We did not go to the dawn service this year nor watched anything on the TV. We decided to make our first visit to my great great relatives in The Oaks Cemetery. They are on my father's side, who I have had no contact since I was six years old. My wife had done a lot of work looking back over 200 years of that side of my family. We also celebrated Anzac day by visiting our countryside, Camden, The Oaks, Burragorang Lookout, Picton then a nice lunch at the Bowling Club. Seeing hundreds of people out with their family and friends is really a great feeling and havi

  28. I did the B&B swim this morning at Manly. They had a 10 minutes or so service and the last post. Then about 1000 people did the swim. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to hit Fairy bower and when I stood on the beach and looked back at about 1000 pink swim caps all coming towards us it was an amazing site.

  32. Its good to hear youre enjoying time with you family. Sometimes our views & feelings change about 'family' when we have kids &/or we lose a parent. So sorry to hear about your Dad. For me, 5yrs isnt that long & there are probably a mix of feelings just under the surface. Take the time to mourn your Dad if you feel you havent because sometimes those feeling turn up when you least expect & not always a convenient time either! Enjoy what you have now, you cant change what did or didnt happened but you can do stuff from now to enjoy 'family' ...sounds like youre doing it

  36. Ultra Trail Australia - May 16th to 19th 2019 It's an event that I've been planning to do for a while. I believe there may be one or two other Trannies going around. Anybody wanna catch up before or during the event? Edit - Oops, just realised there's a UTA 2019 thread so I'll post there.

  39. I'm in for the 100. I did the 50 in 2015. Started the 100 in 2016 but pulled out at the 60km checkpoint. I was feeling utterly terrible from about 10km. Was chasing the individual checkpoint cutoffs. I was weak, lighheaded and could hardly move uphill . ad to sit own about every 10m on the up bits. But I wanted to get throughat least the section up o the overlap with the 50. Nellies Glen was the worst I have felt in my life (and I had done 100's before). 3 or 4 steps, then rest. Had the sweepers with me most of it, and felt so bad they were stuck with me. Overtook som
