Zakalwe-Outlaw number 369, bloody hell it is windy here.  Confidence was nudged by the bloke who had raced here five times saying he had never seen it so windy!  Oh well....

Compression clothing in triathlon.

I use a set of 100% ones, they have slots for you to put ice blocks into after the race which is a definite plus and they have always seemed to aid recovery and stave off some of the degradation.  Certainly worth a try for the longer distances, they are black and generally go on in T1.  Besides you can never have enough tight lycra!!!


Best GPS watch for ultras

Big fan of the Garmin 310 as it is easy to use and robust.  However the best I have managed from mine was 13 hours battery life and I found that fairly frustrating at times.  As above failure when I am brain dead and sun burned and need the pace info.  Good watch up to that point.

Hey, not volunteering for the station as I am racing (I use the term loosely) but would like to just say thank you to everyone who does give their time well in advance, it is greatly appreciated.

Bug knocked me for 6 last week and now my local pool is closed...  The bike work seems to be paying off so it is not all bad news.

Feeling nervous about this one, I think because I am a bit race rusty this early in the season.

I will also be going this year, not sure if I will be in the best condition for it but this one will be about the finish not about the time so should be ok.  Have people booked flights and accomodation yet?  See you there.

What is your favourite tri length? No particular reason...

Honestly its half ironman/middle distance long enough to make up for my rubbish swim and still short enough to recover in short time not being ruined for days after.  Oh and they are cheaper!

Recommend a good 45/50 mile Ultra for April / May 2015

Country to Capital was pretty good, takes place in January and sits at 45 miles if memory serves.  Enjoyable race.

Hey I did this a couple of times it's a good course and a nice atmosphere. Swim - very shallow in places and there is a long run into T1.  Bike - no dramas it's a nice ride, mostly on good roads, one section of road just seemed to absorb energy (no it was not a hill).  Run - it's not a flat course by any stretch but feed stations are well located, be mindful when I did it last a couple of years back the run was definitely over 13.1 more towards 14, loads of watches beeping in middle of the track and confused looking people.  It's a good race and I would do it again, enjoy.  Awesome race t shirt that said something like happy beavers worth it just for that!

Thats a real shame I did that event last year and was impressed it was a nice course and had a good feel to it.  Good luck with the refund, any idea if they are going to try and run one again in 2015?

Geeky Bike component question.

Shimano 105 or SRAM Rival groupset - discuss.
