    Waterproof Tape

    Hey I was reading this thread yesterday --- so I tried some KT tape ( had some here ) -- as I was just experimenting to cover part of my feet - for some shorter races coming up ( don't want to wear socks -- feet got badly cut into on Robina OD --being so hot kept pouring water over me -- hence shoes got soaked and my feet were rubbing ) ---- went for a long run this morning --and didn't get "hot foot" like I normally do ---- have to do more running with the KT to see --- but wouldn't it be great if it somehow stopped it
  2. Don't think they have the correct points in the Overall -- as I've only been listed for one race -- so I've emailed them -- it's correct for the SD

    We were watching the start of the men -- think the first wave was white caps -- 3rd guy that came out of swim - must had only done one lap of the swim -- had a yellow cap on

    Canberra OD qualifier was same weekend and also Tweed Enduro is next weekend - so that would probably impact on numbers

    SunSmart Worlds

    In 2009 at the GC Worlds - it was a wetsuit swim -- so it must have been still on the cooler side

    It just clicked about this — I knew it was going to be cold but didn’t correlate that with being wet and cold
  7. Yes -- notice a lot cooler than it has been 11-24 degrees -- have packed a jumper Thinking I won't pack my wetsuit ??as it's been 34-38 degrees there lately
  8. Yes I was happy about that as well -- was thinking of just doing it Sunday morning - then no hurry to get to GC on Saturday

    Swim Skins

    Just wondering if you have good core -- do they make much difference.?? I have a dare2tri one and I'm not sure if it makes much of a difference...unless the brand makes a difference
  10. Just wondering - 2017 - how much was the race entry fee, the team management fee , the race and casual uniform ( guessing you can’t wear a tri suit from previous years - like 2014 ? ) and any other fees Just looking at total costs guessing to would be double the fee is you were doing both SD and OD?? I can’t see any of this info on the TA website
  11. Found this on their facebook page EVENT UPDATE - City of Joondalup Triathlon #1. Due to the significant wind speed there will be no swim and we will run with a DUATHLON format for all distances. It is advisable not to use a disc wheel.
  12. I did Perth OD in 2009 - for Gold Coast Worlds in 2009 - they were double points -- and I did worse in that then in the normal qualifying races
  13. Trying out for both OD and SD -- OD - Townsville, Robina, Canberra, Mooloolaba SD - Kawana, Canberra, Luke Harrop Points for best 3 races
  14. 😄 i checked that out last night — think was nearly 60 names in my AG for the sprint lots of long lists for all the AG Sprint
  15. Don't think so --- I did some research when I first started triathlon. Someone was attacked in USA on one occasion -- but was in a training swim
  16. Do you think they will put some shark netting up or just cancel it again if shark spotted ? for future years?
  17. They said at race briefing you can draft off same sex.and they had a gap of 25 mins between last male wave and 1st female wave It felt like I worked a lot harder on the bike then I would have normally if doing it solo ( — it was just like doing a bike race- ) - I was in a group of strong riders ) Possibly my legs may have been fresher in the run but I know my heart rate was at the high end
  18. Yes - was me — bike was so much fun - from the start worked with 2 other ladies then picked up a really strong rider from younger age group and the 4 of us worked together until the end of the bike leg. 20km ( apparently was 22km ) went in a flash. water wasn’t too bad for Canberra - no wetsuit as it was 22.4 degrees geeat race
  19. If people in a bike race don't work together - the pack soon gets sick of them -- as it's only 20km -- think it will work well if small group -- but I'll take it as it comes -- makes no sense to be out the front all the time while others have the benefit of drafting -- see what happens
  20. Who else is doing this? Will be my first draft legal triathlon. I'm thinking best to try work together in groups of 2 or 3 (in your own AG/wave) --- not sure how that will happen -- but going to try
  21. I hadn't done the Kawana course before - but it was a lot better than I thought it would be-- only a couple of people drafting (no big packs maybe in groups of 2) -- I didn't see any accidents (although I heard someone came off the bike ) and most people held their line when cornering -- good road surface
  22. What episode is it? -- I can't see it "on demand" -- thinking it must be 36 or 37 as can't see either of those
  23. Went to Roth this year - because of destination and iconic event...and was good as it is in Germany -- so my sister and youngest son (and of course hubby) came. Thinking of going back to Busso end of 2018 -( I've heard through 2 sources that it will be on ) as our youngest son (15 yrs) said he would only ever go there as a destination - triathlon /holiday --and wasn't interested in coming with us any where else -- so would probably the last time he does
  24. Wetsuit optional at the Hundy tomorrow — so you never know - lucky we threw ours in just in case
