  1. Maybe we could meet up before the team photo on Wednesday or even better before the AG Dinner on the Thursday
  2. I'm excited only because I get a week off with paid Sporting Leave -- my highlight
  3. How strict do you think they will be for race pack pick up ? Sprint pick up Wednesday 10:30-11.15am. previous years they haven’t been strict at all. i was planning to pick up in the afternoon on Wednesday
  4. Can't believe the questions being asked on that Facebook group
  5. I was looking at some of the Strava segments from people ( I know how their race times ) — “ easy 4 hour ride “ - 130km — “ easy Ironman pace run “ - 4.30 min/km Pace ( 15km ) —- then I discovered there is a digital EPO that improves your ride and run by 5% when uploaded to Strava !!!!!

    Busso 2018

    we are in -will be my 3rd time at Busso
  7. Excellent thanks went onto Spartan Bike Bags and Ive bought the last of the ex demo TT bag 😀😀
  8. Looking for bike bag recommendations. Have done a search on here already and seems the EVOC and Scicon seems to be most popular. Would like one where you don't have to remove handlebars if possible. After many years of using a frame/ travel bike box made of PVC Conduit/ Corflute that my hubby made -- used for both international and domestic - it finally has had it's last flight -- where I believe a baggage handler has walked on the box (this has happened before ) and trashed the frame the bike goes on. Thinking soft bag -- thinking baggage handlers might be more careful
  9. Think I went for the zip back this time -- I had the 2nd one for Auckland --
  10. Always good for me - is passing blokes on the bike (especially any hill) and run. Love it especially when they zoom past me on the bike and then give up on the run. Love the swim course and the great support on the run and bonus - I passed two 70.3 competitors on the bike coming back into town
  11. Excited -- today my paid Sporting Leave got approved. I've paid the entry fee and ordered team uniform
  12. Anyone got a 2mm Allen key we could quickly borrow — staying at Mantra — going to have a bit of a swim at 7am this morning just need it to adjust brakes

  14. Youngy and Youngy2 - full - don’t know our numbers and too lazy to look them up 🙃
  15. I got up early and did my training - then I had a School Marching Band in the Main Parade in town - think it’s the 5th year I’ve done this. Had 3 school Anzac Day services on Tuesday - which my bands play at.

    Flu shot

    School provides it for free - so I’ve been getting it for a number of years now — never had a problem with them. Teaching primary and high kids and visiting different schools — sometimes hard not to avoid coughing and sneezing kids who don’t always wash their hands and go to school when they should be resting at home
  17. That's because Gen Y use snapchat
  18. Both times I've done it (IM and 70.3) - the water was rough. Make sure you don't swallow any -- few were on the side of the road vomiting - after they got on their bike. Both times I've done it - I was in a storm and got drenched. Part of the IM course is exposed to the elements - so had a bad crosswind for short part of it.. Saw a croc basking in the sun - when I was riding over a bridge (he was on creek bed) But that's the tropics - weather can be anywhere. Just be prepared for that
  19. Good we get paid Sporting Leave (hope that hasn't changed) I've already booked an AirBnB place on Marina Parade from Wed- Monday
