  1. Jocko Willink talks a lot of sense.
  2. Never needed special shoes for any WOD's. I know they say Lalo's etc give you a better platform for lifting or whatever, I don't really need them. I wear Ultra Armour runners.
  3. I ran a drink station at Geelong and agree with what was said above about slowing down to get drinks. You won't believe the number of people who flew through and had drinks flying everywhere trying to grab them. I've finished one Half IM. Learn the time cut offs, because I got the bike cut off wrong and fanged it, not leaving a lot in the tank for the run. As for the run - that said, if you start the run, I think you stand a good chance of finishing because there's no damn way after completing the first two legs you want to pull out. I walked a fair chunk of
  4. Who cares? I'm built like a loosehead prop, currently deadlift 140 kgs and bench 90kgs, I run like a slow wounded buffalo and look like a sea lion in a wetsuit. I love triathlon. Not looking to win my age group or anything, just keep fit and have fun.

    There was a definitely a section of the bike course where you needed to ride out toward the middle of the road or cop some decent corrugations. In more normal wind conditions the bike course would have been a treat. Battling it out in 20 kms of headwinds was a decent challenge.

    Finished. My first half ever. Stoked. Tough day at the office with the weather early on. Congrats to everyone, loved the encouragement on the course.

    I hate swimming - can I stand up in it if I get tired?

    20-40mm on Sat according to latest reports. Not sure I want to swim in a small lake with that much rain.
  12. I watched the video as I follow that page on FB. The guy is a tool. Overly aggressive and passing on the right hand side. Lots of stuff he does in the video appears unnecessary.
