    What training did you do today...

    100km on the kickr- I won’t say the bike was calibrated properly, but I’m still claiming that as an indoor cycling PB. I might even survive the Husky Ultimate Aquabike next weekend. Just have to fake a 2km swim with a bung arm and no swim training to speak of. ...

    Fair enough. I’ll start with 2 biddons of Endura and water in the shiv fuel cell. That, my own gel selection and an additional water biddon or two will do me. Given my next to zero run training regime over Sydney’s extended heat wave, I’ve switched over to the aqua bike, so I’m sure I can make the 100M run to the finish line if I can endure 3 laps of that new bike course. ...

    Jan Fredeno - Training

    Because of his advocacy of a “plant diet” - which folk have assumed = vegan when in fact it is simply focusing on getting the carb component of diet from vegetables and other non animal products from unprocessed sources, ie. things that still resemble plants.

    I haven’t. The problem is that you are a drone with a confirmation bias problem.

    Yeah. Piss poor. 90%+ conviction rate when I prosecute. 80% win rate in civil and industrial litigation I run. 80% acquittals when I defend. Hopeless.

    I debate professionally with experts. Name calling with idiots saves time.

    Indeed. You are that idiot: Drawing deep from the IPA and other shills of the overdog. Sinclair Davidson? When he’s not shilling for the IPA, he’s shilling for big tobacco.

    In most cases, there were no school halls in existence. Those that were simply were not adequate. You’d know that if you had kids going to public school. Amuch better spend of public money than Howard’s ‘school halls’ program which saw Kings and Scots able to upgrade their Italinate elephant palaces and boating sheds.

    Except Stikman is wrong. There was a massive gap in both time (about 1 year) and in diversity of impact between the benefits of China’s own stimulus package starting and the effects being felt beneficially in Australia. Doncha did an analysis - providing links to the relevant studies on the issue - about 150 pages ago in this very thread. I couldn’t be arsed repeating that exercise, save to point out that the trades and allied employment in the cities on the eastern seaboard were facing mass redundancies and had no real chance of picking up the windfall of China’s increased demand for resources to fuel its construction stimulus. It may have been different in mineral rich WA, but even there there was a 1 year lag. ...
