    what is the @mdcc_tester or anyone else knowledgeable solution for using a gxp chainset in a BB30 frame (other than not lining the pockets of people who make BB30 frame sets)...

    its been suggested that the Cbear bb30 to gxp is the best option, but at £95 it seems like an expensive solution to the problem.

    no, but id never spend two hours in a pool let alone most of if doing leg drills!

    but them i am a triathlete, and spend as little time kicking as possible, just an occasional flutter to keep them in line with my body rather than generating propulsion, barely even kicked doing IM Austria despite it being no wetsuit...

    i'd probably do it the other way around and buy a swim wetsuit and surf in it....

    shoulder mobility for the swim will only help your surfing, i guess the only downside is the swim ones are a bit more fragile but if you get a lower end one then they tend to be made of less fragile materials etc.

    i think i saw a post somewhere prior to the 12 asking if he'd mapped the route right though, so strictly following what was on his Garmin must have seemed logical at the time, but i agree they are definitely self made bad luck, i believe they are what NFL teams call thinking errors....

    i think once hes in a race he just goes full gas till he finishes, he knew hed been DQ'd from ironman wales this weekend for littering and still went on, running a 2:52 marathon despite the fact its less than 4 weeks from Kona so will now spend several weeks recovering and wont even have got paid for his exertions.... and probably wont do well enough in Kona to get paid either as a result*

    *hopefully he does as it looks like he's had a crap year with injuries and to get dq'd from two races is pretty unlucky even if they were both technically his own fault.

    Bristol half today, well organised, tricky course with a nice out and back for the first 8 miles and then zigzagging though the city centre for the last 5 miles.

    Went out having only run 2 times per week since June and longest run about 16km, sat with 1:35 pacer for 8 miles and then just drifted off in front and ran to feel, finished in 1:33:02, nothing special but a good step in rebuilding my enjoyment of running and confidence having really struggled in the marathon of Ironman Austria in July!
