Year of first Tri race?

  1. Did my first parkrun the other day and had a bit of a crack and ran 21.22 which my memory and strava tells me is a PB. So I'm going to try and get it down to 20.00 over the next couple of months. I'm going to try and do this on 2 or 3 runs a week that are in addition to 2 or 3 rides a week. Question is - what would be the best bang for buck in terms of running intervals to do each week??

    New Clown Shoe Required

    G'day all Have a couple of OLD pairs of Hoka Stinson 3 which were/are awesome for me. I also have a pair of Hoka Clifton 4 which are.....ho hum. I can't find Stinson 3 online(discontinued) I need the mega clown shoe cushioning for my hips and muscles. The Clifton have been horrible for DOMS in comparison. Are there other brands that are very similar to the Stinson in a cushioning and mild control sense? Thanks very much ALL OPINIONS ARE VALID.

    Run Hundred

    In the same vein as Winter Fish, also inspired by a ST idea I've never done with them, comes: Run Hundred What's it about? It's about running. For 100 days. NOT continuously, but consistently. What constitutes a run? 20 minutes or more of running in one session. What is running? If you classify what you're doing as running, then it counts. Run/walk, water run, slow jog, sprint interval, whatever. What if I run more than once in a day? If you have more than one session in a day that has 20 minutes of running in it, each one counts. When does it start? I will start on Fr
  4. Sydney is a week away from the old blue line marathon.. who's in this year?? I'm start venue manager again so I guess I'll see you all fresh and ready to rock and roll! I"ll be the least like to look like a runner guy wearing around three radios!
  5. Apologies to Florence and the Machine for some lyric manipulation there... After visting a Physio and an Osteo to fix my hamstring problem, on Monday I visited a doctor. I was sent for an MRI and then back to the doctor - I knew things weren't looking too good when she said "you must have a very high pain threshold to run with your back in that state." She referred me to a specialist Sports Doctor, who went through each slide of the MRI with me, and identified the cause of my hamstring pain as a disc issue. I have three discs which have a 'tear' and have lost fluid (the discs look all dark
  6. Even though I only live a few hours away from Bright I've only ever been through the place a couple of times on my way up to the snow. People keep telling me about how nice a spot it is for some running and riding so I penciled the Bright Alpine Climb ( http://www.4peaks.com.au/ ) in my diary and then virtually forgot about it. It looks like the event is actually four separate runs over four days (Sat, Sun, Mon, Tue) and the run distances vary from 10k's to 15k's and take in each of the peaks of Mystic, Feathertop, Hotham & Buffalo so each run will be solid but still very achievable.
  7. It's my first city to surf, so who's in? Are any Trannies hanging around for a few post race light refreshments?
  8. I was thinking about this on my run last night while struggling to stay in my aerobic zone. I generally follow the Maffetone method for run training and had been starting to see some good improvement until I injured on the bike. A 2 month layoff has put my aerobic ability back what feels like 12 months. The real question is - how detrimental is drifting into zone 3 / tempo pace when trying to build aerobic efficiency? I have no problem walking to get it back under, but this could also relate to trail and hill running, rather than my current unfitness. I've just moved into a hilly
  9. Hey guys, I'm hoping to tap on the collective wisdom and experiences of others to see if you can help me work out what to do next to try and get rid of a nagging issue I've been having with my achilles since January this year. I have seen 2 or 3 different physios, podiatrist, masseurs and I don't think any of them have been able to figure out exactly what my problem is. The issue seems to be localised somewhere near the heel bursa rather than your typical achilles area - from what I can understand this is where the achilles tendon connects with the heel. This area swells after
  10. Already working through this problem but always interesting in hearing new opinions and thoughts. Subject. Long term athlete, 180cm/80 odd kg, 10km PB around 34-35mins, 27yrs old. Problem. Body is pretty banged up, trained on and off for last 10yrs longest break of 2months off running. Lots of half arsed efforts to get back into over the past two yrs. soft tissue injuries, back related nerve problems etc. Over the last 8 weeks I've been getting back into my running and want to race again after Xmas. Did a six week program building from 30km-80km that netted a 34:15 10km. Never drop

  13. So with 4 months until I return to IM racing, I have started to think about where my weaknesses are in actually trying to race an IM. Physically I think I have most things covered. However, my main issue is that my run forms slips under extreme fatigue. There are a few things I am doing to improve physically in this aspect. However, I am pretty sure a large part of this is a weakness in my thought process while on the run in long course races. I tend to not be able to really push a mind numbing pain longer term. In short course racing I tend to have a mindset of racing angry and this
  14. Thought I would share this with those that like something a bit different.This event was organized to celebrate the 100th Canberra birthday. Sri Chinmoy put on the event and did a great job, co-ordinating, trail marking and supporting the runners. The course started from Regatta Point Lake Burley Griffin and took in the major peaks surrounding Canberra. I completed the 2nd leg 30km which was a fairly full on day. There were 25-30 solo runners and approx 70-80 teams. with the solo winner just under 11 hours. Here's the link with details and results. http://au.srichinmoyraces
  15. Hi Everyone, This has probably been done to death but I did a few searches and wasn't coming up with much. I've been racing Sprint and Olympic distance races all year. My longest long run this year was 15km had a foot injury which has limited me to 8km runs. 5km pace 4:25 per km 10km pace is 4.45 - 5 min. Its 2 and a bit months to the race and I'm now good to go. My swimming is sweet normally front of the pack in my races similar in my ride TT's. Long rides of up to 200kms. Including 3 peaks and alpine classic just need to build the time on the Aero bars now. I'm looking at

  17. So my wife has a love/hate relationship with triathlon.. In other words, she loves the pre and post-race banter, the socialising and, when she's not stressed at work, the training. She is a great athlete naturally and had a first amatuer and a number of AG podiums this year. She wants to turn her focus a little more to running, however, when we're back in Aus next next year. With a few friends, she's trying to pick out a few races to focus on. I looked for her on Cool Running and Event List to find a few but I felt there were a number missing. So, with that said, does anyone have any s
  18. Hi all, So around 4 months ago I sprained my ankle really badly playing AFL footy (please save your comments...) I left it for about 1.5 months before seeing anyone (physio), where i got small results. Then 6 weeks later I went to see a foot and ankle specialist where I got a CT scan, MRI scan and post scan analysis. It was decided to go for a cortisone injection as excess scar tissue had bult up around the anterior tiliofibular ligament area, which were blocking the flexibility in my ankle quite significantly. I was told the injection was to go in and break up the excess scar tissue a

  21. Ummmm strange question of the day: What are some of the negatives of Natural/Barefoot/Minimalist Running? Doing a lit review on Natural Running technique but cant find any negatives from literature (journal articles) besides peoples issues with injuries due to lack of transition time. Any ideas?

    Garmin Fenix

    Looks like the new Fenix will be perfect for the adventure racers, trail runners and ultras... http://sites.garmin.com/fenix/?lang=en&country=AU#begin http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/10/garmin-fenix-gps-watch/ http://uncrate.com/stuff/garmin-fenix-gps-watch/ http://www.bare-essentials.com.au/12891-gps-for-serious-adventurers/ Nice looking unit, but not really a triathlon watch, does not seem to have power or swim functions.
  23. Shooting down the West Coast this weekend to watch the Great Ocean Road marathon. Has anyone done this, and interested to hear some tips on how you tackled the course and what you thought of it
  24. Hi, My missus had a herniated disc a few years back and after 18 months of rigorous rehab she got it all under control. She was told to swim a lot to help keep the back mobilized and also with stretching. Her doctors advised her not to run at all as the constant jarring due to running is not good at all for her situation. Recently (around 4-5 months ) back she started running again as swimming and cycling was not cutting the mustard. she enjoys it immensely and has been slowly making some good progress. But due to the competitive nature she also has a tendency to test the limits a bit
