    What happened at Waterfall this morning? Anyone know

    We all felt pretty sick as we rode past, we commented on the accident just a week ago nearby. It didnt look good from what we could see. Still seems to be plenty of aggression by some drivers today - summer is here & I guess it brings out some of the knuckleheads. I hope she is going to be alright

    Ashes - And Cricket in General

    I would be dropping Watson & Smith. Like Capt U says, only 2 x 100's in 40 tests - that's not good enough from one of Aust's best. Smith ain't ready yet for test cricket, he needs to mature a bit more, another couple of years ? I would put Warner & Khawaja in. I'd also pull Hughes & Gowan aside & give them a bit of a one-on-one - an extra special pep talk Aust needs to lift to have any chance, saying that England will also respond. If England see any cracks opening up in the side they'll be in there with a crow bar.

    DeSoto tri shorts. 400mile or 4 pocket? Others?

    I have both pairs, the 400 mile is very good for riding, I dont know if you would want to run in them as the pad is pretty big - but I suppose you could. The 4 pocket short is also good, minimal pad which you find in most tri shorts so its good to run in. I find that over 80 - 90k's on the bike they can get a bit uncomfortable, but that's my experience. And to add to this, I find they fit a little too high up around the waist, I find shorts that are low cut or fit around the hips are more comfortable for longer runs.

    Glad wrap - toasty as when you don't want to use over shoes

    Probikekit delivery time

    I ordered 2 x tubbies from Wiggle on Monday, chose the fast delivery option. They arrived first thing this morning. Very happy. The DHL docket says it was shipped from the UK. Portsmith, Hants.

    Holiday ideas for late Decmeber/early Jan

    Thailand ( Phuket ) is great around Xmas time, the weather is good, but it is peak season. We stayed at the Sunwing hotel at Kamala, really good for kids with loads of organised activites. http://www.sunwingkamala.com/ - it is right on the beach

    8 ridiculous nutrition myths debunked

    To me it sounds one sided, no mention of what kind of protein to eat - just a pic of juicy beef Shall I order a bacon & egg roll & coffee, dont eat the buns - 3 times a day - & be rest assured & I am eating adequately. Sounds almost like an add for fast food Here's another view http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturated_fat_and_cardiovascular_disease_controversy

    winter jacket and recommendations

    I dont use a jacket, I layer up & if its really cold I use a wind vest as well. You do sweat a little more under a wind vest but it sure takes the sting out of cold air.

    Did have a 90k ride + 16k run brick session on the cards, got up with blocked sinuses & slight sore throat. Changed to a steady 14k run at 10.00am when the sun was out. The brick session will have to wait till next Sunday

    What weather won't you train in outdoors

    Heavy rain - running becomes a chore, your shoes get waterlogged. Dangerous to ride in stormy, windy weather - being seen by drivers is diminished. Light rain & occasional showers is fine with me

    Cut in new Huub wetsuit

    I've just repaired my suit, had a tear of approx 7cm long. Glued one side, let dry, then glued the other side. The product I used is called Aqua Seal, its a urethane type adhesive, bloody good stuff.
