The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon is my first running race for the 2016 calendar. At the end of 2015 I decided to step up my running, but I had no idea about the best way to improve my time. Luckily I know many top runners from whom to seek advice. Where else to turn to but my favourite running group, HuRTS?
In this how to we will be looking at how to replace your disc brake rotor. After a long period of use, your rotor will be worn. A way to check is to use a caliper and take a measurement of the rotor where the brake pads make contact with the rotor then take another measurement at the section next to the brake pad contact surface, if the width of your first measurements is less than the second then it's time to replace your rotor.
I’ve never warmed to the idea of doing a triathlon. It has a lot to do with the uncomfortably early morning starts, daunting claustrophobic swims, confusing transitions, risky cycling conditions and the torturous run…and don’t forget the skin tight, butt-pad unitard that obliterates all sense of self esteem.
Once again, I find myself in the race that started it all for me. The Corporate Triathlon was my first ever triathlon event, some years ago. This is my second attempt at one of the most prestigious race locations in Australia. It is not often that you get to swim with the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge as the view.
First run for Sydney Striders for 2016 is at Homebush, Olympic Park. This is a very close race to home but I've decided not to participate in this event due to "being soft", as some say, honest truth is that my legs were just too tired from a big week of running and I have plans to do some mountain bike training. Instead of going out and smashing myself for 10Km, I did the photo duty for the day, here are some of the photos from the run.
