    This is very sad news, its made me reflect Nearly two years ago I had a bike accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. I spent two months in hospital. I think I have dodged a bullet. I was a bit down last year. Wasn't working, didn't have a driving licence, legs ached and felt like I'd run a marathon after I had the flu. I wished I had done a proper job with the bike accident, the family would have been financially better off. After a traumatic brain injury you are 3X more likely to suffer mental health issues and 4X more likely to end your life.With the support of friends and trannies esp Flanman( read trannies helping trannies thread)was persuaded to enter park run. I started running again slowly at first, did the Coastal Classic.This was so important to me because of balance issues post TBI I had to relearn how to walk again and the hospital physios told me not to run on uneven ground. Ive meet Flanman at park run a couple of times, I rejoined local tri club. I did my first club sprint Triathlon a couple of weeks ago I came last but in my mind just entering I had won. All this made me realise how close I could have come to serous mental health issues and I am so thankful that I dodged that bullet, and thank you Tenpints and Flanman I know if ever I need to talk you'd have an ear, It's reassuring.

    welcome to triathlon, you'll fit right in with that amount of overthinking this far out.

    Today my line manager flew in for some "coaching". Was sitting there thinking why am I putting up with this micromanagement bollocks.Life is too short so I quit. Will take some time off, get IMWA finished in whatever time I can, and press the reset button for 2019.

    Thanks for the kind words mate. Your missus and family are your real heroes. Yes, you dodged a bullet and great to see you getting back on your feet. I still have a chuckle (if I can say that) when I first saw you in hospital. You seemed OK - until you opened your mouth. A hundred different discussions coming out at once.😁. So much so, we had to put a lid on you..... Keep it going. I'll see you at Parkrun again, although not for a few weeks as I will be outa town in the land of the long white cloud. Mick PS: You still kick my arse running. You give me the shits (also that 8 year old that ran past me last Sunday gave me the shits too) 😃

    Wishing you all the best - life is too short to be miserable at work. Enjoy IMWA for what it is, here's to a great 2019. You deserve it ☺

    Stikman kindly suggested I browse the list for competitors in my age group from traditionally non-swimming nations to make myself feel better that I may not, that's right may not, be the last swimmer out of the water in my age group. He's very supportive.

    Man I've got things good. Life's not easy and I wish everyone the best. Great stuff clappers and BigRig lets hope that closing that door leads to the next door being a good one.

    On Windows, you should have a local fit file in something like C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Zwift\Activities on Mac, Im not sure but I imagine it will be around...

    The formulas from the paper are posted wherever I've posted that step test. So your last completed stage was 325W, or 350W and when it stepped up to 375 that was game over? Let's go with the latter. 350*0.825: 288.75 ftp/threshold/whatevertheycallitthisweek Estimated best(?) 20 minute effort: 288.75*1.05: 303.18 *Just math from me here. I'm not a coach. I try to stay clear of shitfights as to what FTP means/is which eventually leads to personal insults of epic proportions. True story. See Slowtwitch!

    Where do you live Scottz? Is it down south or are you up here. If you're from SEQ, then you'll know that last weekend was hotter than normal. The chances of the same temp next year are low, but even so, get out & do some training in the heat to get used to it. You never know, you may even enjoy it.

    I think you just go to Strava and do manual file upload from that folder.

    What tends to happen is that I jump on with intentions of a steady two hour ride, get bored after 10 mins and figure if I pedal harder, I'll get off it earlier. Unless it's a very hard workout, I do everything in the TT position ( sometimes the longer climbs are a mix and Innsbruck is nearly all on the bars). I'm scheduling an FTP test tonight, will be interesting to see what's what at the end of the season. No running for me at the moment

    You’re a triathlete now. You blame an injury on poor form not being busy at work.

    Due to Amazon (also) being pretty useless with technology, my links are only US based. OfficeWorks here in AU have the best deal I've seen on the three-pack. (Side note for those interested - Amazon affiliates need to create accounts for almost every market to get kickbacks... UK/EU/US/AU/etc... it's a total shitshow. That's why you'll see people put regional links. I only bother with US. Affiliate links with videos are super low traffic. Amazon also send paper cheques to non US affiliates which cost AU$25 and 28 days to process. One of the biggest tech companies in the world! hah!)

    Sort of ironic isn't it how we stress about the risk of a nuclear accident, yet ride our bikes on the road, where we know there are rational people who suddenly become psychos when they see a cyclist in their way. Even one of my most benign work colleagues says that when he sees cyclists riding 3-abreast, they become fair game!

    FP do you make a habit of smashing yourself on the trainer? (or am I always taking it far too easy?) My FTP is 272, but rarely able to put up numbers like yours. 60 minute run for me this morning. It was cold again!

    I am 40-44, untill next year, I painstakingly downloaded individual race data for that AG too though. If I can be bothered I will update for an unofficial ranking list. It doesn't make you faster but can give a rough guide of the strength of field.

    Okay. Next week I’ll start uploading. I’ll upload as unlisted but post links here. Youtube deleted a heap of mine but I think the trick is if unlisted, nbc can’t search and ask to be removed.

    That run was the hardest run I've ever done, but did around 10 hours training in total so not surprising!

    Sunday, I think it was, I got a message from my Dad saying he and his long term partner (who I despise) were more than likely splitting up. I called him immediately, we chatted a bit, he said he was basically fine with it all, he told me he would be living with my brother for a while, and we pretty much left the conversation at that. Today I get a message from my brother asking if he can call tonight as he needs some advice. He told me Dad is staying with him after he picked him up from hospital where he was discharged today following being admitted yesterday subsequent to an intentional overdose. Apparently the second this year. He wasn't so much seeking advice but more telling me where things were up to and also asking forgiveness for not telling me about any of it sooner. Not sure what I am thinking right now. Just kind of putting it out there.
