  1. The OLT v FatPom was a classic as FP mentioned above was gold. Wim De Doncker (the Belgian Pro Triathlete) who come to OZ for a few races and jumped on this forum copped a harsh feedback, the threads he engaged in always somehow needed popcorn close by. I have been on and off for all the years, and not so much as late but was always good to check in on the community.
  2. I thought that was pre Transitions i.e Forster HIM 2002 (that very hot day) in Ozchat.
  3. To confirm, I'll always think you're great.
  4. The only upside to that is additional SC or Points if they (presumably so) hold any meaning to you.
  5. So if you have the lounge option, given the time frame you have, that does present an opportunity to have a nice session (keep it discreet though). Hopefully the QAN lounge you have which is pretty decent in ADL. The Virgin lounge there is not so nice - particularly the bathrooms/shower.
  6. Yeah, as other have said, the Torrens river run is a ripper, although the last 2k heading to the beach is a bit boring so turning right and running as far as you want to city direction would be my choice. Alternatively get yourself to the beach from the airport which is pretty easy and plenty of good running either direction.
  7. You could always just have more and then get it right!!! 😁😁😁😁😁
  8. If either had done a "Deek", there would have been no issue (well the present one being discussed).
  9. I assume nobody is keen on Ballarat 226. I'm not, although Chuck maybe resurrecting it.
  10. Chuck, you forgot to tell Mike Reilly it was off, he was ranting and raving down at St.Kilda this afternoon wondering where everybody was. His day ended up officiating the beach volleyball tournament a suburb down in middle park. He was in full voice but will be hitting you up for his appearance fee, although I see you've got that covered from Active.
  11. I found running endurance (going not flat out but fast longer) improved after 40, although that could have been influenced by how I trained, but top end speed fell away. Then mid/late 40's both endurance and speed aspects of running started to slow. (Not being as serious doesn't help, but I factored that in) I found explosive bike speed also fell only slightly away after 40 but nothing too noticeable. I don't ride anymore (other than on the trainer) to see where I am now but suspect several rungs back. I sorta don't enjoy long bike rides any more, they just seem like they'll be bo
  12. California is the most western mainland state of the USA isn't it? (Outside of Alaska)
  13. Chuck, how about making the Frankston race a qualifier to the Ballarat 226, that would go along way to justifying the prize purse you suggest.
  14. I opened this topic thinking it was a story about somebody laying a cable in some athletes pre or post race/training meal.
  15. GSP

    All things IM NZ

    I do remember you farting at the awards ceremony and it was gross!! The Customer can verify this.
  16. Heh Chuck. What about 226 in Ballarat, is that back on soon?
  17. The tan lines indicate either a significant time spent in budgey smugglers on the road or budgey smugglers in the solarium.
  18. FP. That front chain ring. ahem
  19. Paul's response is pretty good. When I was training properly (and had the time) a lunch session could be 25min run to the beach 30 min swim then 25 min run return when the weather was nice. Still 50 or so mins run but it felt harder than a 50 min straight run and therefore of more benefit to fitness/adaption. Personally, given your scenario I'd do the 45 min run (I'm assuming there are no shot cuts), swim as much as you want/need (Don't think it makes too much difference) but I'd run more than 1.35 home, perhaps 1.50 as a long run is a long run. My boundary is 1.40 for medium to lon
  20. Hi Campbell, If you're running only I don't see why you'd need to bother. If you do get back on the treadly, even for W/T sessions or jump in the pool for a dip then go for it. There is a chap at work who has a 235 and we were comparing the pro's/con's of both watches and he said nope to swimming and riding which left minimal differences which granted were there, but not $400 worth. He also doesn't go on Goughy's Golf forum, so the golfing features are no use to him either, I'm not sure whether you've taken up that time sink though. Cheers
  21. Eh?? The 910 was around 8 years (I think) The 920 was released around Sep/Oct 2014 (I'm sure). The 935 does everything the 910 does and heaps more except what Pete pointed out about the non button light thingy which was temperamental on the 910 anyway.
