  1. Swim - Water a bit cool.... wind chill on top was bloody chilly. OK swim 17:36 Bike - Miserable and bitterly cold - felt a bit like I had some issues breathing - put it down to the cold. Could not wait to start the run and warm up. Really slowed me down a bit. 51:30 Run - rain stop half way through - body warmed up thankfully, though still did not feel very good. But happy with run overall. 22:47, then 21:22 splits for a 44:10. Transition 1: 1:20 Transition 2: 1:18 This gave me 8th in the 50-54 age group with a time of 1:55:55. Thought I went faster as I did

  2. Long ride for the week. It was a hoot heading home with the tailwind. Neck deep in toast and marmalade now. ROTB will be done via mowing the lawn and the vacuuming.

  3. Back in semi-freedom, I’ve had 4 days in a row of my commute back up through Mt Dandenong. Reminds me how much I miss just riding in the semi-rural hills, no traffic or traffic lights and fresh air. Cycling can be just fun and mentally refreshing. Around 1200m climb and 80kms each day but it’s just enjoying cycling again.

  4. Morning. Calmer today.....lol. Had a talk with him yesterday about getting everytsorted and that he couldn't live in a house like that. I spent 4 hrs in his house yesterday. At least it is a start. Needed a mask so I didnt get high....lol. Cleaner in today at 10am. 18 garbage bags so far. Disharge likely Friday. Assessment tomorrow with discharge and community health team. A happy place to begin the day. Marcoola Beach. Not a bad beach.....no crocs here.🤣 Thanks all.

  5. Yep its mind boggling that the biggest issue in the Presidential race is actually getting people to turn up and vote, then you go and make it difficult for them to do so. We complain about about having to trek all the way to the local public school and if the line up is longer than it takes to down a democracy sausage we are livid.

  7. As I am on the trainer for a few hours i will answer this today. Part 1- context First questions is why are you doing kettlebell swings? Did the pt give a reason why you were doing them? There are a few exercises pts give that are basically used to fatigue you rather then benefit you performance why. Go to any bootcamp or group session and you will always see burpees, jump squats or box jumps and kettlebell swings. They are too fatigue you to give the sense of you have trained but in essence you have just got tired. There is a Difference between training and working out. Traini

  9. I think you would be surprised at just how many others at various times or a lot of the time are doing exactly the same mate. Just showing up is a lot better than giving up and at least keeps you moving in the right direction till we all figure this life shit out. Keep focusing on the positives mate, you are a good man doing good. Keep it up.

  10. Sadly a Triathlon legend and all round great guy Digger Elrick passed away peacefully today with his family by his side. Its a sad loss for the Victorian triathlon community and he certainly helped myself alot as a junior and continued to be involved in the sport as much as he could after his accident many, many years ago. Digger was a founding member of Mornington Peninsula Triathlon Club, a State and National champion and a loveable larikin. A fighter to the end. Rest in peace Dig.

  13. So all the training is done and it's taper time. 2 weeks to race day - what have I done! other than a pilates inflicted injury which was quickly resolved by virtue of the fact I have an inhouse osteo 😀 I've had a great prep. Longest run timewise was 3 hours - but that was because I took a wrong turn and spent half an our or so crawling through lantana and over rocks trying to refind a trail, or any trail!. Nothing more frustrating than the phone map saying the trail is just 50 meters "over there" but there's a vertical cliff face and/or prickly vines in between 😆 Eventually escaped!

  16. Long easy easy run. I put in a couple of half hearted MP kms but my head wasn’t in it. The terrible weather meant 3 or 4 stops for coat on/off because I had a loaded vest on. This destroyed my rhythm, so I concentrated on ‘getting it done’ 29km, 139 mtrs, 2:49:14 at 5.50 pace

Thanks folks, trigger pulled and ordered in custom yellow/green purple (got to be able to find your's when it counts, right?) now to see how long the delivery time is...... then to get race fit for x-tri season (and Noosa of course) I can hear Townsville 2022 whispering to me "give it a go...."

  26. I'm not in taper yet, in fact this is (meant to be) my biggest week, with my longest run run being 33km on either Friday or Sat. This hasn't been a great prep, as I just picked a 16 wk program and jumped in at wk 9 because I signed up so late. That and the few days I had off with my knee will probably bite me but we'll see how it goes. Realistically, I will miss one medium length run and one speed session this week but hopefully not the end of the world. My plan is to run the first half holding 5.20/kms and see at half way how I feel. 5.20s gives me 3:48 but anything under 4.00 wi

  31. Long run progression continues... 6.6k walk to work. Easy after only a few hours sleep. 7.4k walk home. Quicker than this morning but still only revving above idle 😎👌 ATL is at 53 Form is -16 I can feel last weeks swim at Scarbs in my sinuses but other than that I am feeling OK.

  34. It appears you had a pt who obviously was doing generic programming. Tell me why you are or want to be doing a kettlebell swing. Give me some context. Are you strength training for triathlon or running or for crossfit? Below is a pic highlighting the forces of running gait of the muscles used. Many athletes run based i see have weak plantar flexors and weak hamstrings not weak glutes.

  40. Never heard of the guy and to be honest haven't really been watching pro cycling for a few years. It got boring with Team Sky and Froome. It's controlled by people in cars etc and I just kinda feel a bit meh about grand tours. The classics I still enjoy, a car can't do too much if a big tactical mistake is made, or mechanical etc. It's a bit more open and anything can happen. Basically cycling is becoming a bit dull very much like the ITU did before Browsers, Gomez and others changed it for the better.

  42. Brick session, 30km ride/4km run. After 7 years in the wilderness, I'm pretty much back to square one, where I was when I started sprint tris in the late 80's. It all feels pretty tough. Used to be able to smash a session like that and easily run 4-4:30 pace off a much longer bike. Now it kills me. Got to be patient I guess and work on it slowly. This season will be back to learning again. On the plus side, at the last local race a bloke gave me his wife's Adamo ISM seat (it's a men's seat & she hates it, was going to chuck it). I absolutely love it. Wish I'd got o

  47. Firstly thank you Trifun for correcting my memory. It was 1986 and my result was 6th not 5th. A complete results list would be great Trifun. Thanks. Does anyone have the results/articles of knows where to point me of two iconic Australian races and one very tragic race. 1981 Elouera Triathlon. I was a 21 year old local cop who played basketball. 13th overall just 4 places behind someone unknown to me then but who would not only become my housemate but was a legend of the sport, Mark Pringle. In 1985 Pringo and I we headed to Vanuatu for Port Vila Triathlon 1st & 2nd, b
