    How do I approach my manager

    I’m going to go and introduce myself to the manager on Thursday when I get back to work and have a one on one chat.

    How do I approach my manager

    Two weeks ago on the day I went on leave I saw an advert for planner in Karratha as a residential M-F gig on the gas plant, so I emailed HR as it’s with my company anyway.... I explained that this is perfect and that I would be so very keen, but I explained the background and what I’m aiming to achieve, well HR called me back immediately and said this is good because it’s hard to find a planner in Karratha, he then said he would chat to the manager who is recruiting and get back to me he called the next day as we were travelling down to Busso and said the manager is keen to pursue it with me as they had decided this would be a junior type role (perfect as I’m just starting out and looking for an opportunity to get in), HR then advised they would seek a release from my current project which should be a no brainer as we have lost the contract anyway. These things take time so I let it chill over the past two weeks but today I rang HR and it’s still in the works but looking good he said. It’s the perfect opportunity as they want local Mon to Fri, I’m already here and employed by them and already on the gas plant. Im so hopeful this will pan out as I want, it will secure our future here in the pilbara for another 3 to 4 years which is what we want.

    I would absolutely see this as a plus if I saw it on an application. Well rounded employees make good employees. If you're not getting passed algorithms then use LinkedIn / in person networking to get in front of the right people. Be honest, explain your issue, ask them for the help you need and I bet you'll be surprised how many people are open to you.

    They haven’t produced an athlete since Dean Lucan gave away the tunas and lifted some dumbbells 💪😉

    Oh my! You're giving us triathletes more time and an excuse to talk about ourselves! Great! 🤣 Lowest moment? Having a row with the SO that I didn't know how we'd get back from (we did)Most rewarding moment? Watching Mr BogFrog finish Mooloolaba with a smile on his face and in good health. Upwards and onwards. Looking forward to him beating me soon (true, but also not true! 😁)Worst race? Sydney Harbour 10K. This was to be my shot at a sub 40 10K, but I realised at 5K that it wasn't to be, so gave up and jogged the rest so as not to wreck my body for the next wrrk. Still ended up with DOMS 🤔Best Race? SMH Half Marathon - This wasn't a major goal for me as I was training for 10K races and tri world qualifiers and only realised 1 week before the race that a sub 90 was possible - possible, but risky for a complete blow out. Absolutely nailed the race and managed to spur on another runner, who was flagging at 18K, to a sub 90 when I told her we were on target although the pacer was miles aheadHarshest lesson? Sydney Harbour 10K - sometimes thingsgo wrong and you have no idea whyWhat was your aim for 2018, did you achieve it? Sub 40 10K. Nope. First year that I haven't achieved my goalsWhat was your biggest learning? Sometimes things just don't go to plan. Chill the f outWhat is your aim for 2019? Sub 40 10K, sub 3:15 marathonMost hated training session? Anyrhing indoors - bike trainer, strength & stability work, swimming in chlorineMost loved training session? That run interval session when your body is fluid, breathing is hard but under control, you feel like you're flying and you nail each interval. Jeez! Just realised these are all running related... next to no tri stuff...

    Lawyering in a firm can definitely be miserable work. Which is why I went off on a tangent and went into contract and commercial management. I wouldn't go back to private practice. In-house counsel maybe. but not in a firm.

    A cousin of mine dropped law and opened a coffee shop. Happiest she'd been in years. Got divorced went back to law and is miserable again. A pattern forming here

    Lowest moment? Running like a bucket of shit at Ironman Maryland Most rewarding moment? Dropping down to 75kg & feeling amazing on my long runs in training. Worst race? IM Maryland (only raced once a year) Best Race? As above Harshest lesson? Trying to train in Hong Kong & New York is difficult. Jetlag to the East Coast of USA is a bitch What was your aim for 2018, did you achieve it? Retire. Failed due to a free spot. What was your biggest learning? What is your aim for 2019? RetireMost hated training session? Swimming. I train solo & I always struggle to get motivated to swim. The other sessions I can put on music etc Most loved training session Crit Racing & Cross fit

    That's definitely something worth considering, but as Cottoneyes picked up on, I am an altruist and consider it charity work.

    Lowest moment? Preparing well for a HIM and having my calf let go 5km into the run, limped home in 5:23Most rewarding moment? Knocking 51mins off my marathon time at LCW.Worst race? Did have any terrible races. Had a 10km recently that underlined how much top end I've lost during the season.Best Race? Got to run in three races with my daughter, nothing else compares. My own races though, LCW I think.Harshest lesson? Properly racing a hard duathlon in 0degC really really effin hurts.What was your aim for 2018, did you achieve it? Have a good LCW and improve my TT times. Yes to both.What was your biggest learning? As a triathlete I'm a half decent at time trials but as stand alone, I'm very much an also ran but I already knew that. Repeated years of IM focus is not enjoyable.What is your aim for 2019? Still working on it, something surrounding trail running and UTMB points.Most hated training session? Swimming logisticsMost loved training session? Long run/ride

    LA still a WINNER

    Depends where you're looking in their portfolio and which balance sheet you look at. It's all in the licensing, advertising and leveragible market presence. Uber is not just a ride sharing APP, it's the Jim franchising phenomena of the new millennium. We have several Uber services now beyond the ride sharing and If we don't see an Uber airline and Uber funerals sometime in the future, I will be surprised. BTW Pete, BITCOIN is just pyramid selling or investing in new shiny pyjamas! Each generation needs a scam to be sucked into and scorned!

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    Thanks for putting me in the category of a great triathlete Rob Mine unfortunately was a result of not enough S&C combined with incorrect shoes. The goal of the 70.3 is born out of a childhood of being told what I shouldn't be doing due to joint issues and becoming the fat kid. Only planing on finishing, not expecting any more. But am also realistic that if I am not ready I wont be doing it and disappointing myself.
