  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. And for me.... I dry it inside out and store it....inside out and in a bag and in a cupboard.
  3. Things clearly go very slowly in the Foz household. Today, approx 30 days since I got my Garmin Edge 530, I actually went and put a battery in the Qarq power metre. To my surprise a little green light came on. Looks like i have been able to pair it with the Garmin and update a few settings etc. Now I guess I just need to ride it and then have someone tell me what I should be pushing. Any suggestions for what is next are welcome. Until next time.
  4. I would suggest take one and take a spare for someone who has forgotten. May be a little chilly tomorrow
  5. Those helmets look all new. Better than the ones I race and ride in
  6. These billions are generally the biggest philanthropists. How is that a bad thing? In total, at least $171 billion from the coffers of Forbes 400 members — a cohort with a collective $3.2 trillion net worth — has ended up in the hands of charities and nonprofit institutions. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jenniferwang/2020/09/08/the-new-forbes-philanthropy-score-how-we-ranked-each-forbes-400-billionaire-based-on-their-giving/#9a303c49eba9 They probably get good tax breaks ...so what. On the other side of the coin though....... my daughter was at the coffee shop and some char
  7. Has anyone seen the Movie - Man of the Year? Check it out. Robi Williams accidently becomes President due to voting stuff up. Great movie.
  8. Didn't use the M4 til the late90"s. I think 97 onwards. Oh..The run was roiginally 14KM.....and then 12 K for many years before moving to 10Km once it transitioned to the regatta centre. And yes the hill up on the Leonay side was a prick of a hill.
  9. Can anyone answer this. Today at lunch I signed up for Cairns and it’s Tier 4 entry ie: maximum price which means it’s filling up. 4 Tiers so you would think it’s minimum 75% full. Then tonight they post that Cairns is 50% full. So why are we paying maximum Tier 4 prices when it goes to Tier 4 in March/April unless it fills up earlier. Money grab?
  10. I have been doing Tri's for over 30 years. Most people (work and friends) I know have no idea i do them. I only talk about Tri's with people who I do tri's with. My take is...... what is important, exciting and fun to me is not the necessarily important, exciting and fun to others.
  11. I just check all races (Ironman OZ, NZ, Cairns) and it seems they are all filling up quickly. I also notice a considerable price jump. I am not like this pricing structure ie: Tier 1, 2, 3 & 4. Once upon of time races fillup and price increases were by date, now its by volume. ie: For Cairns as an example, they are at Tier 4 already when the date cutoff for Tier 4 is late April. So as of today you can only enter Tier 4 and its a hit of $1027.00 assuming you dont have to pay for a one day licence. Have to say...good for the sport or Ironman...not so good for my wallet.
  12. They reckon IM Oz is 90% full too.
  13. A friend also told me that when GST came into Australia it was a god send.......everyone would offer cash as they didn't want to pay the extra 10%
  14. Correct. I know a heap of tradies who have the best bikes, boats, impressive house and all declaring an income of around 30-40K per year. They tell me they and there accounts know the formaula in which to operate there beusiness ie: what does through the books and what doesn't etc. What shits me is that if I was to buy a $10K bike, I essentially have to earn around $18k to pay for it......they pay Cash. I also know a guy who did a reno about 10 years ago - cost about 400K.... most of it was cash....In the end the builder said...Mate....I can't take any more cash!!!
