    ageing- from serious stick insect to mammil

    more great wisdom/discussion from everyone- i agree that the psychological side/identity thing is important and dealing with this is very hard- its easy to plan the physical and know what to- but accepting that im getting older and slower is harder to deal with. thanks again to everyone who has replied to this topic.

    ageing- from serious stick insect to mammil

    really appreciate the comments so far- for me not exercising frequently = depression so i want to be able to train consistently and maybe i dont need to chase PBs/performance goals so hard.
  10. just wondering how people cope/get their head around the ageing process- was a serious stick insect all through my 20s and 30s- ie. 3 marathons (2.57 pb), lots of tris, 2 x IM, and now in my 40s-the last few years weight has crept up and crept while ability to train frequently/consistently has gone down- tore a calf muscle in Sep . which had me out of action for 8 weeks- just taking baby steps to get back into action/ what mindset/thoughts do you adopt as you enter "middle age"?

    dropper seatpost on a budget

  12. looking for a dropper seatpost- no more than $200 seen brandx with internal cable $199 dnm external cable $149 even seen speed up lever (underseat) post for $120 -any recommendations, i usually only drop the seatpost for long/technical downhills
