    Despite not much change on the scales and lots of riding, had a good moment last night when I was at my parents and my mum said "have you lost weight? you're looking trimmer". So screw you scales! I win today!

    I didn't reply to this thread as I didn't want to get in to another lose weight "competition". Suffice to say I've reached a very sad weight again. At 45 years of age you'd think I'd get "it". I don't get it. Currently listening to David Goggins audio book and while I'm still not sold on the guy, there have been a number of things resonate with me. 1. If you want something, it doesn't matter how many times you fail. Learn from the failure and go again. And again. And again. 2. There is no finish line. When it comes to my weight loss, I've always had target weights to reach, to lose, dates, time periods, what ever. I need to make a complete and utter livable life style change. A habit that is doable, repeatable and enjoyable. As when it comes to my weight health the only finish line that counts is death. Keep going people.

    I cant handle watching Taren so wont but this was all in the lead up to Kona where he had to find 101 secs to go under 8 hours... Turns out all he had to do was hire a domestique.. 😉

    LOl I thought that. TBH this diet has been really good for us. It's got me off the couch and helping to cook more. By cook more I mean chop up veg & do what I'm told in the kitchen. It's also made Emily try alot of different foods/meals she wouldn't have tried in the past.

    Despite what the RIA has said the event was never long term as it simply does not stack up financially. Its like reinventing the wheel, we did it for 14 years and it didn't stack up that's why we ended up in Busso That and the fact the RIA are complete turds to deal with and nothings changed. And yes Athletes carrying on like brats who think they own the place doesn't help. Its an A class protected reserve for kids and families on holidays not triathletes carrying on like self entitled tossers.

    It shits me that there are some people that, by my reading of the situation, felt special and entitled, and ruined it for everyone else - visitors, locals and other competitors. Plus the organisers. But i'ts a long held saying, only takes a few to ruin it for everyone. The amount brought to the island by way of numbers would have been insignificant to the island at that time. With the current situation at Husky, it brings home the need to us to appreciate the towns and locations that let us stage these events, else we risk losing them one by one.

    lol Last time I lost a reasonable amount of weight (got under 80kg, but still 5kg from my former race weight), my Mum kept asking if I was OK. She thought I had lost way too much weight.

    I'm not sure what Peter Dutton is on about now, but his latest 2 "Fights" for his electorate are both State Government & Local Council matters. The latest is his & ScoMo's declaration to fix a low bridge crossing in the north of his electorate. He's been running a campaign on his website saying we need to get behind him to fix this bridge. The problem is, it's a local council road & bridge. He's now pledged $7.5M to fix it. Great, because the last study put the cost at over $80M, and for a back road, it is just too expensive for a local council to fund the other $73M. But even worse, there are a number of large billboards on the main road I use with his ugly mug on, proclaiming his fight for better parking at Ferny Grove Station. Yes it needs it, but no, it's a State Gov matter, and there are already development plans in to redevelop the station and add additional parking. I suppose he will claim the additional spaces as his work. And better than that, the station isn't even in his electorate. Maybe if he got the NBN fixed (heaven forbid he do something about a Federal matter), then a lot of the people that currently commute every day could work from home and not have to drive to the station.

    Can you believe there's no Colonoscopy option on Strava? Reckon I did at least 100x 10m sprints yesterday.

    Not so much insignificant as the RD stated 3500 bought to the island this year but displacing regular visitors (i.e. ones that spend more) and ruining their experience. I daresay the usual issues of littering during the race and other such things in a sensitive ecology wouldn't go down well either.

    78.7kg now and focussed on 75kg by the end of the month. Down 2.8kg since start of the year and about 5.5kg since the “oh shit, I need to lose weight” moment.

    ha, I've had a similar experinece in the past when I dropped about 20kg for half ironman...but I was still about 10kg from ideal race weight. Mum kept saying "you're lookg WAY too thin". I'm a reasonably tall guy with broad shoulders so when I lose the belly I look a bit unhealthy I think.

    I'm guessing they're the ones who said they won't do it anymore.

    Pricey (who lives in the area) said it's only one time a year they need the extra portaloos, due to an ocean swim event. Rest of the year the residents probably do as you describe...

    Buffalo is such an enjoyable climb, consistent and great views. Was Bright Brewery, Sweetwater or Beechworth Brewery your refreshment venue of choice ?

    Do it yourself! I changed the battery in my polar edge (1992 model) for 16 years before the watch unit literally fell apart. If you aren't confident nough, go to a jeweller/watch repairer and try them. BTW - don't buy a gamin, you will be forever charging it and bike thieves will follow your movements on strava, so they can steal your bike when you're away from your home. (Equally tongue in cheek comment like the "buy a Garmin one above).

    Day 3 of being "plant based" & it hasn't been that bad. We just made pancakes (almond milk, oats & half a banana) cooked them up & they fairly good. The it's been great going over recipe books, reading ingredients and cooking with my daughter. It's been really good for our relationship. We had smashed avo, tomato & spring onions on rye toast for lunch. It tasted awesome until my wife cooked up a schnitzel.

    I don't understand veganism. In nature animals each other animals and insects, insects eat other insects and animals, insects and animals eat plants. Some plants eat insects. It's all natural....?

    I'd say after 27yrs on the first weekend in Feb - HOTW has earned the right with triQ to have a buffer of at least 2-3 weeks either side of them for a similar distance race - we can't afford for these races run by community groups/clubs to die out - these are the races that triathlon was built on - not the big corporation run races 😏

    I'll take that as a complement goughy. This is the wall I competed on at the Birmingham world cup in 1997 during one of my 6 month climbing trips. I had planned on going back the following year after a solid training block and compete in the whole world cup tour but blew my elbows again.... Bad enough to have to official retire which is why I got into triathlons!

    Walked in the office today & at 15kg over weight I’m still looking a shit load skinner than most of the people in the office. Ppl also commented on how relaxed & healthy I’m looking.

    Disaster My first target race of the year is a week Sunday, 20 miles. I am training to go sub 3hr. Everything on track, did a planned 10km 5.00 pace on the treadmill today, got to 6km and the back of my right quad has pulled up real tight. I slowed it down to a walk for 3mins and stopped. buggery bollox. any advice?

    Finished off the tour de zwift today, I missed stage 5 when it was on, snapped my seat post clamp 2km in so that wasn’t ideal riding with the saddle at the lowest point. #awkward
