ONE STEP AHEAD: Is fast food a good recovery food? WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Yasso 800's - predicting your marathon time based on how long it takes you to run 800 meters. HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW - GWEN JORGENSEN: Gwen Jorgensen has just posted her eighth win in the ITU World Series with a comprehensive victory at the recent ITU World Triathlon Gold Coast. The victory marked the longest-running WTS streak of any elite woman since the inception of the series. Gwen, who trains with Wollongong-based New Zealand coach Jamie Turner, clocked a 1hr 56min time on the 1.5km swim, 20km bike and 10km run course. Not even a 15 second penalty for incorrectly racking her bike could derail the 28 year old, who hasn't been beaten in a race in almost 12 months.
