  1. What do you do to get away from Triathlon?

    Wow that is beautiful
  2. Is there a decent beach or lake for a long swim

    Maybe if you could give some more 'clues' on what your RD friend has in mind it might help with the suggestion, of course it might not though 😁

  4. Has Ironman peaked?

  5. Ultraman Cost

    I think the unwritten rule across all sport is that you pay all expenses for your crew & rightly so. A good support crew are worth their weight in gold & they work hard for you
  6. This, not only for you but a few of us too
  7. What do you do to get away from Triathlon?

    This is great! Re your stuff in the other thread, the work youve done here is a good conversation starter when you ring your Dad - he would love to hear about it

    Ive worked with a short woman who had small man syndrome. She was a living, breathing monster of a nightmare. True
  11. The Politics Thread

    Yep the bike & feed stations were sportive style - just needed another 1 or even 2.
  16. ageing- from serious stick insect to mammil

    Weiight gain is an interesting topic for us ' athletes' . A coach once told me to 'control the controlable' eg I cant do anthying about crap weather on race day but I can do something about my attitude to it & not let it ruin my day. Is our weight one of the easier things we can have a say about or 'control'? In not pointing the finger or anything like that - just that we all feel better when we're at our fighting weight yet we ... well, you know, eat or drink too much or too many when 1 or 2 is all we really need 😉

    Agree, hard in a different way. More aid stations on the bike wouldve made a huge difference to me. I thought I was being clever swapping my empties for bidons of water only to find a few meters down the road they were the skinny ones that fall off your bike at the hint of a bump. Wasted time after the turn around getting mine back - it was that or no fluid. I loved the bike course, used every gear I had available 😊 The mix of serious competitors & those not as serious made a great atmosphere so by Sunday a lot of support for each other Do it if you can, was a blast
  18. ageing- from serious stick insect to mammil

    This is a great thread, everyone has made some valuable & honest comments. I think weight is something to keep in check as we get older because its easy to pile on blubber & hard to get it off. Sometimes so hard that you start losing motivation then its easy to play the age card & before you know it all the weight related problems as well Time goes slow when we're juniors & speeds up when were old!

  22. Long Course Weekend - Jervis Bay LCW

    Oooh filthy headache this morning & gurgling, noisy tummy. Cant wait to run 42 n a bit k's 😁😁
  23. ageing- from serious stick insect to mammil

    My thoughts in general are - Dont use age as an excuse not to stay fit n active n healthy. Respect it but dont give in to it. Youll feel younger getting out there & being involved & you can still have goals - theyre often the things that keep us motivated
