    I'd suggest not posting up his videos or watching them. It only drives traffic which is currency/oxygen in the world of social media.

    A handshake to celebrate 35 years at the Big-T today. I started as an apprentice tech in the company's last big intake along with 120 others in Brisbane, and over 500 across the country. I travelled the state from the Cape to Quilpie, working on TV & Radio Tx sites in some of the most beautiful sites you could imagine (generally on top of mountains in National Parks). I spent a couple years in purgatory at Woolloongabba Exchange, then made my escape into Design. Along the way I studied and picked up an Engineering Degree, and with that moved into the Planning group, and have been in a few roles here since. I must say I've enjoyed my time, and while it seems like a long time in one job, I look back at it as 4 distinct jobs, with a few roles in each of them. For someone who was planning on leaving after the 4 year apprenticeship to have a go as a pro sportsman, it's been a long journey. I'd do it again at the drop of a hat though to meet the great folk I've met, and the see the wonderful places I've seen.

    Context required. What is your goal? Do you want to be a better climber? Climb Hills Do you want to be a better triathlon rider then you need to spend time in the aero bars. Build volume then recovery (aka recovery week/adaptation week) repeat. Add intensity via attacking hills, efforts on the flat, on trainer etc. Build on that and again put in an adaptation week. Easy sessions are easy. Hard session are hard (not necessarily long) Always remember the purpose of the session you are doing.

    Riding hard every time you sit your bum on the bike is the most common mistake. Your performance will get worse doing that. Go for 2 moderate hours 6 days a week. Actually, make that easy to moderate. The occasional short sharp effort is good.

    just been reading more into this over the past few weeks. zone 2, which is 65-75% of your ftp, should be 80% of your rides, with 'ball tearer' or zone 4 interval type ride once a week. This is more base training though. A second up tempo ride can be added later.

    I do both. When the legs are heavy & I can’t get the power/hold the power. I do an easy 30km on the flat. I ride almost every day & often twice a day.

    just live 35 km from work and leave exactly 1hr before starting time (including shower), the trip home will be your "recovery"

    Geez its a good thing I don't troll, I would come out with much nastier stuff than saying someone had a dad bod! But I used to play cricket and spent a lot of time in the slips...subtlety has no place!

    Only ever made one insurance claim. A motorbike accident that was 100% the driver's fault. Unfortunately he had the same insurance company (RACV). At first they tried to deny he was at fault and told me I needed to get a police report which would have resulted in a fine and demerit points to the other driver (their client). Luckily I had several witnesses who looked after me with their reports to the Insurance company. Then they refused to replace my motorbike jacket because they said it looked too old (would love to see what they would look like after sliding down the road at 60kph). So instead they 'mended' it. But now it is no longer waterproof, so completely useless to me (I have a different leather jacket I wear in Summer). I immediately switched all my insurances policies (previously everything was insured with RACV). I saved nearly $1,000 in cheaper premiums across 1 Car, 2 motorbikes & Contents Insurance. All from arguing over the cost of a $400 jacket. So I suppose I came out on top in the end, but an extremely frustrating experience.

    Buildings that aren't houses can be insured, so I reckon there is more to this than reported. Probably could have had some kind of insurance, but wanted to wait until it was an occupied dwelling. Plenty of part constructed things have insurance.

    True, I have been on both ends of the insurance experience spectrum. Your experience clearly sucked. Guess who funded the opposition during my 8 year legal battle through the NSW court system? What should have cost the system well under a million bucks ended up costing the system several million bucks in legal fees alone. Yet I've also experienced good help via insurance for income support and medical coverage.

    Lately its been pacing me way to fast for the first 800metres, neutral advantage for the next 2 kms and then having to be urged on for the remainder. She came to us underweight, then the kids started feeding her too much, all being turned around with daily runs and reduction in portions at the moment

    The Tour de Cure ride from 2019 is being shown on channel Seven today @ midday. Do yourself a favour and watch/tape. A great bunch of people doing wonderful things for the community. FM

    I’ve used Lezyne strip drive on my Speed Concept around the post. Front light? Work in progress. Although I’m seriously thinking about one of those Knog bells for this season’s racing. Last time I raced it was full of brain dead idiots blocking the RHS and I’m wondering if they might respond to a bell.
