  1. I have only ever had issues with Garmins. There are other brands out there which are more reliable and less mainstream. Don’t buy what everyone else buys just because you want to buy that (and dc rainmaker said so). Assess it for yourself. Why would a company make a HRM strap which chafes the majority of people who wear it ? Garmin fail. Consider : Wahoo; Suunto; Polar.
  2. Perhaps it’s time for you Garmin sycophants to try a different brand....

    Winter Gloves

    Sealskinz are good. They have seen me through a couple of winters commuting to work. Always dry even when it is pouring down and have longish cuffs which you can fit under your waterproof jacket to shingle the water off. Edit to say I’ve been commuting to work with them in Vancouver for a couple of years where it rains everyday in winter.
  4. I have a sleeveless wetsuit. Mach2 from Dare2Tri. I’ve used for IM Cairns, various races in SEQ, many outings with Grimseys and Eneggora dam and a couple of tris in Vancouver. When I know it will be cool I use a long sleeve compression top with it. In hindsight I could have gone for a sleeved suit but think the extra shoulder mobility may help me. My right shoulder can sublux occasionally so it helps with that. The other advantage of a sleeveless suit is it is much easier to get off when exiting the water.
  5. A 3.5k swim with Grimsey’s at Redcliffe this morning. Lovely flat conditions and a fairly small group because of GCM.
  6. 2600m in the pool with the pull buoy. I broke one of the bones in my pelvis a week and a half ago ( fell of the bike) so I haven't done anything since then. It was a pleasure to do something active even though I looked a bit strange getting in the pool off my crutches.
  7. Specialized Romin on the road bike and ISM attack on the TT. Needs some adjustment to hang off the front on the TT
  8. It was good actually, a little breezy on the bike which worked well on the run.
  9. Yep, I am in tomorrow. I’ve been sick with this rotten head cold for about 3 weeks so it could be a little ugly.
  10. Minoura Mag Turbo trainer. Free to good home. Adjustable resistance, good beginners unit or for outdoor work. Location Moorooka Brisbane.
  11. A double loop trail run and a 1k swim at the dam yesterday . Very nice
  12. River loop with my son this morning, including speed bump sprints at UQ. it was a nice outing.
  13. Windtrainer intervals then a mostly comfy run off the bike. I was running along the river at west end and ended up running alongside some rowers but they were in an 8 so they pulled away fairly quickly. Getting over my cold now so slowly feeling better.
