  1. Respecting the Race

    I thought I saw something that said he did stop, and when he saw that there was spectators and others helping Matt, then he continued...
  2. Long Course Weekend - Jervis Bay LCW

    Yeah, saw that change, Guest I am going to get rolled by the short distance people 15mins in and lapped twice by the 1.9k folk ...
  3. Long Course Weekend - Jervis Bay LCW

    There was a link in my email about 3 hours ago.
  4. Long Course Weekend - Jervis Bay LCW

    Hmm... Any clarification on the comment from earlier about Road bikes only? (The course doesn't look TT-unfriendly)
  5. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Just waiting for AP to beat PJ...
  6. Neck Flexibility

    heh. Helmet on the trainer time. Find your heaviest helmet (And maybe add weight to it) - strengthen your neck *note: I have not tried this...

  9. Long Course Weekend - Jervis Bay LCW

    Right. 3 weeks out (in fact, The swim will be happening in 168*3 hours) I just entered (and grabbed accom as well). Three weeks to stay healthy, otherwise I am NEVER doing an EE race, ever.
  10. Obesity being classified as a disease

    yes you can... Orally...
  11. Obesity being classified as a disease

    It seems like people expect that signing up for a fitness program means that they don't have to do the work, why this mindset exists is not something I want to delve into, on the other hand - https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiX44ytxNjWAhWLzLwKHYd6BnMQjBwIBA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fchimaeraspeaks.files.wordpress.com%2F2012%2F06%2Famerica-fitness-s.jpg&psig=AOvVaw0RymOwQtYlTfk0yYlu9DaT&ust=1507260310513622 I think the other two examples I want to use are these. Overheard at a gym "Oh, I don't come to the gym to sweat, that is why I hired a PT" and A few years ago, riding home from work, past a park where there was some description of Boot Camp fitness thingy happening. Nearest legal carpark to where the group was setup? 200m. Only one vehicle was setup in that carpark (the Ute with the fitness company stickers all over it). There would have been 10 cars illegally parked in the bikelane directly next to where they had setup...
  12. Plasma donations - ASADA rules!!

    Still a closed system (except for the anti-coagulant - some random citrate) - With platelets, they don't add saline back in, they do with plasma donations. Anyway - the idea of bloodbag doping is that you are aiming for a significantly higher than normal haemocrit level (the weight? of RBC compared to the rest, with the bio-passport alerting above 50% (which in turn was the pre-epo test level for - this person is using epo) - if they were to do a test of my haemocrit levels, they would find that I really should consider blood doping...
  13. OT saving lives

    Bugger that It is when they go - "Oh, you are doing triples this week" So 62mins on the machine becomes 100mins, plus a bit more faffing about with a second blood draw post donation. Work is... understanding (And Fridays is my standard late finish anyway)
  14. Plasma donations - ASADA rules!!

    Interesting Oh well, guess I would get a TUE after the fact... But as IP said - If they wanted to ping you for it, there are more important things in life.
  15. OT saving lives

    Platelets on Friday for me. Starting to wonder... they keep sticking me on the triples... Damn it takes a long time...
