    They can - but your dog isn't competing at the Olympics. That's the point here.

    Plastic bag ban.....

    Same here. I use public transport to/from work. To stop in to the shops on the way home I now can't pick much up. Will have to learn to bring a shopping bag with me. Personally, I'm somewhat cynical about the bag ban. I'm all for helping the environment but I think this is a token gesture and somewhat falsified (as people will now buy bags...which are the heavier, less environmentally friendly ones) so I wish I'd bought shares in Glad. I will now unwrap the plastic packaging from the herbs, fruit and veg, etc. and leave it at the counter on the way out... I'm also confused. if we go back to paper, as some suggest, isn't that just leading to an increase in the felling of trees? which is why we went so anti paper a number of years back??

    2018 Goals-what are they ?

    Interesting to read these now it's April. I seem to do better at achieving sporting goals but not personal goals. oh well, tomorrow's a new day and a new opportunity to try again. How's everyone else going?

    Weak ankles and trail running

    Does anyone know if sand running is good or bad for weak ankles. My ankles are shocking - not much holding them together.

    Rotto swim canned - shark...

    Depends - Soloists go off first, then Duo's, then teams by age groups. So you may be a fast team who went off the beach 2hrs after the first wave of soloists (there are now 4 x waves of just soloists) but happen to be in that zone. Most of the Soloists were clear. My swim buddy was the one that swam over it and got out. Apparently he was still pretty shaken hours later. T

    New Busso swim course - shark friendly

    Why in the full IM would they change going around the jetty???? bizarre. That's the iconic bit. Yes. They get precious about the swim leg...pity they don't reduce the height of some hills (obv not Busso) when the going gets tough on some cycle/run legs.

    New Busso swim course - shark friendly

    I just did the annual Busso Jetty swim on the weekend, which goes around the jetty. Totally fine. Yes - that course swimming north is a nightmare with the sun.
