    If you don’t already check out Lachlan Earnshaw on YouTube, Aussie ametuer Ironman guy who’s pretty quick and thinks up some crazy training challenges. Inspiring me to do a triple brick workout next weekend if the expected snow and ice arrives up north

    I don’t blame you looking at that! Wonderful.
    If we’re unloading, I had 2 sandwiches for lunch instead of my planned salad. Running in the cold and wet when it’s already well past lunchtime = bad choices afterwards.

    What’s the go to cheap gps watch? To avoid taking my phone on every run.
    I just want something with gps to track distance and a stopwatch for total time and timing intervals. Then upload to strava on my Phone when I get home.
    Don’t need any fancy features, definitely don’t want to read messages, track sleep etc!

    I agree with this! I’m terrible at eating rubbish if we have it.
    I’m trying to focus on eating more plants, veg, fruit for each meal- rather than cutting anything specific. A goal of at least 50% of the plate is plant based eg instead of 2 sandwiches with a tiny bit of salad in, have 1 sandwich and a salad, or take the ingredients and make an awesome salad.
    I’m back to 92kg+ and I’d like to be 85kg so I can run faster, do even better in sprint tris and fold in the middle easier for tt riding!
    6foot4 so not super fat but my diet can definitely improve

    Nice paint on some! But agreed, expensive for alloy frame

    I looked at Allez frame sets and epic evo full bikes today and you could get both in any size as long as you aren’t fussy on colour through their concept stores, but not so much at other dealers
