First Triathlon at Worthing in July

I missed out on the entry for this one. On Sunday morning, I was quite glad I had. All power to you all.

Fuel for tomorrow's training

So tomorrow I've organised two training rides with different people, by mistake,. I'm doing 20 hilly miles at lunchtime, then about 40 hilly miles after work on the way home. So there'll be lunch and a break of about 4 hours in between.

What's tomorrow's ideal diet for fuel and recovery?

I'm having an issue with my 920XT

Bookster. I can pull the page down and it looks like it's working, but nothing updates. I can tap the refresh icon on each of the information segments and again, you get the iphone swirly-working-symbol, but nothing updates when this finishes.

If I go to 'devices' in the menu, it tells me it's connected with my 920 xt.

I'm signed in to all my correct accounts, so I just don't get it.

Hmm. We have different problems. It sounds as if your web stuff and your app aren't talking. You do have Garmin Connect in both? I don't think the app works with the old garmin site.

Billig Free Run - If IKEA made trainers (there'd probably be pieces missing).

I'm having an issue with my 920XT

It's syncing flawlessly with my wi-fi at home and uploads before i'm even in the front door. Ace.

But i have an ongoing issue syncing through my iphone. I've upgraded all the software on both devices, they're paired and connected fine, I've checked the auto upload box in Garmin Connect, but it stubbornly refuses to transfer my workout data.

There doesn't seem to be a way to push or force it to send the data.

Anyone have any idea what to do, or what might be causing it?

Get yourself in shape for this: 

and then there's any number of hilly 50 milers that come up in the spring. 

The SDW50 would be about right for you:

I have two young children so it's always a balancing act. I'm a hands-on Dad so the killer for me was the weekend long runs - xc marathon and an xc half at the very least every weekend.

However, I've heard said that if you can cover the race distance in your combined weekly runs every week, however you split it up, then you've probably got enough in the bag to get round the course so long as you stay injury free. Some one will probably shoot me down in flames for saying it but that makes fitting your runs in round your family much easier.

And unless you're competing at the front, there's really no point in pushing yourself too hard and risking injury. I can run 10k with sore calves, or blisters, or a tight IT band, but 50 miles? No thanks.

So, 'better under-trained than over-injured'.

It does seem to be your standards versus everyone else in the thread. Maybe you are too posh for this thread.

May you never get caught short


(Wait till he finds the thread on peeing on the bike deliberately to save time in an IM)


So, er, you only do that during races?

Alternative seat post

Maybe this should be a 'gear' question, but it's tri-specific...

Something to carry your phone in.

Maybe someone will finally benefit from my inane ramblings...
