  1. Thanks Bored@ I guess we'll give it one more shot with policatl threads... If we cant all get along then maybe it's best we just dont have them here anymore... Is that fair? For those of you openly admitting to trolling just for fun you might find we now just lock your account for good. It's not helping anyone and it's just creating work for mods etc.

  2. So tomorrow (10th Jan) was supposed to be the Kurnell worlds, postponed from Nov and ultimately cancelled. I did want to do one more triathlon of some description and had actually entered this way back when it was first advertised and then postponed had a cunning 16 week weight loss plan devised but like that it seems this much loved event has gone the way of the do do bird. I suppose if I get of the grog and the meds I can still lose weight but will we ever see your face again?? Im thinking of a song here.... and dont like the chorus Im hearing

  3. A) some might say I need a god feed. And I like this look. 😀 b) I do most of my riding on the aero bars whenever I can. So getting aero for long periods is not an issue for me. But I get what you are saying. Serious question: Given your the expert here can you advise what you see as the 3-5 most important stretching exercises we should be doing. I certainly need the advice. And...oh.... feel free to post a pic of your physique so we all know what to be aiming for. You are being a bit presumptuous in your comments and I get it and tend to agree in some part

  4. I think that the best money a Triathlete can spend is getting a bike fit on their TT. You will end up more aero, so faster and more comfortable for that 180km in the saddle. You need to train your body to stay in the aero position for 180km. I see so many people after the 90km mark sitting up with their hands on the bars.

  5. Foz and Cranky are good sources and have done well. There are not any wrong answers, depends a lot on where you are starting from and what you want to achieve. If objective is complete then almost anything to the extreme of nothing can work. The example I posted was around don't be limited by a 2 year old, its a good age, it gets more challenging as they get older, Foz though has actually lived it so he is best placed for this one. On the model its basically ride bike 5 time, run 5 times, swim 3, do some intervals focussing on IM demands closer you get to the IM. I used to think

  6. It got locked, we have lost our way without your wisdom and Coach@'s and well a few others. I'm not helping so trying to stay strictly Tri Chat, but I keep letting myself get dragged back in. Anyway good to have you back, maybe you can give me some more tips for crit racing that I won't follow and then I'll moan about my results😀

  12. When I was at my peak 15+ years ago, I was getting 6.5 to 7 hours of sleep regularly. Don't know if I would have been better off with 8. These days, I try to get 8 and when I do I tend to have better workouts.

  14. I have been doing Tri’s since 1989 and have never owned a road bike. 12 months ago I bought a Cervelo P5 Six. My mate bought me a Bike fit for Xmas last year which I did... never had one before. I always saw others doing them and they had all sorts of new stuff added etc for adjustment. Anyway.... prior to bike fit I bought some s-bend aero bars to replace the ski ramp bars. My other bike also had s-bend bars which I love because I can just get so much drive out of the bike in the aero position. Walked in to the bike fit..... straight away they said - we need to get rid of the s

  15. I hear you. I am in the same boat - shift worker the last 10 years.... (12 hour shifts). Garmin says my average sleep this week is 8hours. What it doesn’t know is I had 3 night shifts this week and my watch lay upstairs beside my bed so it thinks that I slept well. I reckon I am the king of minimum sleep and getting the most out of every day.

  18. I find Garmin sleep monitoring less reliable than their wrist HR (which is saying something).. I've had many nights where I've been awake most of the night but 'staying still' trying to drop off and I've recorded 8 hours of sleep with loads of rem and deep sleep...I think as long as you're still you get false readings

  20. Professional bike fitters impose their own personal philosophies upon you. Just sayin. Formulas are pretty simple. And your position and fit will change over time. Quite frequently. But hey if you makes you happy mate all good. Ive never had the capacity without a lot of stuffing around to change around crank lengths before I had the new indoor bike, and its confirmed a lot of what I have practically experienced in nearly 40 (omg) years of riding all types of bikes in competitive environments in multiple disciplines. I have been through all (and I mean all) the modern evolutions in bike h

  21. This resonates with a theory of mine... I suspect many who stick with long course racing while bringing up a family have spouses who are significantly more accommodating than they realise. Of course, it’s all relative. My grandfather in law spent most of his weekends golfing or fishing and no-one suggested that wasn’t family friendly.

  22. I’ll take that bet I’m confident I’m not doing them wrong What you have described is exactly what I have been doing. I’m also doing Turkish get ups, atomic push ups using a TRX, kettle bell work, single leg deadlifts, push press etc. I pay for a one on one private session once a week. It’s expensive but worth the money. I have noticed big improvements on the bike. I also find my posture when Sitting at my desk is a lot better.

  23. The main way to get better at crit racing is to race. Ride to and from the race if possible. Dont overthink it, just roll around. Trainer road has some great sessions of 40/20s and shorter bursts. Learn how to ride a wheel and not make enemies, roll your turn its easier than ducking them and embrace the discomfort. Learn to relax in a bunch. Learn which wheels to follow and dont be scared to put yourself in the spot for the primes and the sprints, dont sprint too early. Do some peak efforts on the trainer and try and get a few numbers north of 1000, and some peak 5 second efforts. DONT pedal t

  24. Which other thread. Yeah concrete cupcakes. Harden the **** up variety. Im sure Andrew you garnered considerable amusement and mirth from the antics of Cleaver Greene of counsel and his erstwhile adversary Callum Skiddy McGregor.... Sydney law, politics and scumbag antics at their finest..... problem is truth is become stranger than fiction by the day.

  25. See to me this is like any other attention seeking exercise. If its all too hard you can just stop. Id rather do something that is for me rather than telling people about it and go bush and see how I survive etc. Thats a real challenge not this stupid shit. Go climb a mountain or do an ocean paddle or something like Cody Townsend (who) and his missus are doing on their bikes and skis at the moment. Ive realised things are much more satisfying if you achieve them for yourself and telling everyone about it kinda spoils it - unless you want to share the joy of it with your friends and not for sel

  26. I would have thought that all people in HQ should have a negative test to confirm that they're virus free before they leave HQ. Isnt that the point of HQ? Obviously, the approach of "no symptoms for 3 days" was always going to fail when you can have people with the virus showing no symptoms at all.

  28. I’m not embarrassed- being an idiot is not a state based phenomenon. Likewise, just as many normal people here as elsewhere. Drove to the shopping centre at Toowong last night on the way home from work. (I’m a daily shopper as I never know what I want for dinner) Plenty of parking. It was about 5ish and maybe 80 percent of people I saw had masks on. Plenty of fresh fruit and veges on the shelves. Butcher was well stocked as well. Didn’t go into coles but glanced in and no queues. On the drive home I saw several runners with masks on. My daughter took the dog for a walk at the local do

  29. Interesting to see on a Saturday morning that construction workers and tradies are deemed to be essential workers here in Brisbane - can’t be anything to do with premium rates on a weekend can it?
