  1. The Movie Quote Game

    A quote I often hear around here. I always wondered where it came from.
  2. What training did you do today?

    Can't use paddles. The shoulder tells me to GFM.
  3. How did shane kelly ride this?

    I very much doubt he'd ride that in the Keirin this Saturday. But one hell of a bike.
  4. What training did you do today?

    Too hard on the turns.
  5. So froome is a drug cheat

    Yes, but he was stripped of the 1904 title for catching a train, and numerous other infractions.
  6. What training did you do today?

    Welcome to my world. My local pool is 25m, so that's why I love getting out into the 850m pool I've been using the past week. You ought to try 100 x 100 in it Kieran. It really does your head in.
  7. Bike Rego (Christmas fun)

  8. So froome is a drug cheat

    And how do you tell if it was swallowed or inhaled? By the level in the body/urine, hence the 1000 Nanogram limit. Froome was double that.

  10. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    And there will be a maximum room size, but most of the time it will be bigger.
  11. Bike Rego (Christmas fun)

    And especially for those commuters that lane split and creep past at lights, then ride slow and take up a lane: ME-AGN
  12. So froome is a drug cheat

    Shouldn't this be in the Kenyan Doping thread?

  14. So froome is a drug cheat

    I wonder if Oprah has called yet?
  15. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    If there is a fee to register, then you're probably better waiting till after a couple races & seeing how you are going. If it looks like no hope, then why spend the dollars. Mind you, I'd hate to think that, then see the guy next below you on the list make it because everyone else did the same thing.
  16. What training did you do today?

    5km OW swim again this morning. Steady first lap, then did the 3.3km loop. Steady pace to the turn, then on the way back I went very hard for 160 breaths, easy for 100m, very hard for 140 breaths, easy for 100m, vh for 120 breaths etc down to 20 breaths, and that got me about 50m from the end. Felt good, and it was that calm, the only ripples were from me & the waterbirds.
  17. Old Ironman medals

    Get on to AP. He should have most of them. And he's an "Old Ironman" with medals.
  18. So froome is a drug cheat

    So really. Who's surprised? And I don't just mean surprised that he was dumb enough to test positive.
  19. What training did you do today?

    Who's up for a Xmas Eve swim at Enoggera Reservoir. Early start for me, but I'll probably do 10km, so you can join in at 6am or 7am. Those who are able bodied can then do a trail run through the state forest around the lake. The others can do a cafe.
  20. What gets on my quince....

    The people on the local FB group that slam cyclists non stop and use the old "they don't pay rego", but as soon as someone drives fast near one of them on a horse are all up in arms about how you are supposed to slow down & if the rider signals, the car driver actually has to stop until you signal them to move on. What's that? Is that banjos playing in the distance?
  21. What do you do to get away from Triathlon?

    Or, Kieran's Bodyshop 101.
  22. So froome is a drug cheat

    I wonder how quick people would be to defend him if he were Russian?
  23. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    And even if the rules were changed, I'm sure they would be pushing some of the blame back on the person as "contributing" due to not wearing a helmet.
  24. What training did you do today?

    5.1km OW swim. Unlike you FFF, I don't have that issue with being slower swimming in OW than in the pool, as for most of the swim, the dam was smoother than the pool. And I did it. I finished my swim & never saw another person till I got back to the car. Mind you, 4am is pretty dark to start OW swimming, but hell, the things you do for your own lane.
  25. What gets on my quince....

    That's kinda funny, but if ya arksed me, you don't get anythink write this daze.
