    Heart Rate worry

    Also be aware that the standard deviation for the "average" heart rate for your age is +/- 12 beats per minute!, so perhaps you are 2 or 3 stardard deviations from the mean, varying your calculations by 2 to 3 x 12 bpm for each zone calculation...
  3. yeah, thank god my dog's always sitting on my lap on the couch at night
  4. I think it's dissapointing that 'the powers that be' that like to 'educate' us on global warming etc always fail to mention the enormous impact that the 10 billion + animals raised for human consuption every year make on the environment. The contribution of the billions of tonnes of waste they excrete and emit, the fuel used in transporting them buy the truckload to the slaughterhouse, and the millions of acres of land cleared and soil destroyed by factory farming. They see this as an acceptable thing because, hell, what would we do if we couldn't all eat meat!? A day's food for a meat eater requires over 15,000 litres of water. A day's food for a vegetarian requires 5,000 litres of water. A day's food for a vegan requires only 1,500 litres of water.

    kind of on topic: hot milk, transfat?

    I don't know about getting trans-fats from milk, but there's lots of other 'stuff' in there.... http://www.notmilk.com/kradjian.html

    Protein Supplementation

    http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.htm Only 9 amino acids cannot be made by the body, hence the term 'essential' amino acids, there is plenty of successful vegan athletes out there too.

    Windy? Hilly? . . . Newy Oly dist.

    There is always tonnes of glass on the roads around there unfortunately, mostly in from of Queens Warf, fantastic effort to persist with 2 flats! My day= ok swim, pretty good ride, SHAMEFUL run, but it was only my 3rd race this year, and I've done nothing but easy stuff since IM, so I was just happy to be having a go and supporting a local event. Will definitely be back next year. Best part of the day was watching Nathan Stewart annihilate the ride!!

    Loco Running Shoes

    After getting sick of Asics changing their models from one season to the next I gave Kevin Tiller a call re: Locos back in August, he was a fantastic help and had lots of time for me, sending me 2 pairs to try out to see which ones I liked best. I have now been running in the Mojo's 4x a week and have had no problems at all after having 2 stress fractures in the last 2 years. They aren't the prettiest shoes out, but they work!!

    OT: Any Vegans?

    fortunately I am the cook in the house, and love cooking, so It's no issue for me, I think it really broadens your ideas and skills in cooking. this video was really the crunch for me: http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/video.asp video=mym2002&Player=wm&speed=_med edit: not sure how to get the link to work but the whole text should be the address, not the underlined bit.

    OT: Any Vegans?

    Just wondering if any of you on Transitions are Vegan? There has been some good discussion lately on CoolRunning on this.... http://www.coolrunning.com.au/forums/index...showtopic=13163

    OH SHIT! Leg hurts... Need advice...

    last december i got my second stress fracture in 18 months in my foot (distal 3rd metatarsal), it came back 2 weeks before canberra half and i didn't tell anyone and still raced, anyway I think it was at about 8kms into the run that the stress fracture broke into a fracture and i hobled home on my heel to still qualify for ironman. being the stubborn shit that I am I had my doctor agree to a "cam walker" type plastic brace and crutches instead of a cast so that I could still swim (wihout kicking) with a pull-bouy.....perhaps this type of cast would be an option for you??? p.s I still did IM this year on no running training (12.53 finish) I appreciate that's not for everyone but.

    14 Hr IM Cutoff almost confirmed for US events

    ....and lets not forget that at Forster in 2004 the women had the fastest average run time. 'nuff said.
