  1. Training volume when not signed up to anything

    That's a good point. And I totally applaud any trainer who gets down and do the hard work with the client. That would be a huge selling point in my view. good job. PS: I for some reason thought you were a physio etc. Apologies.
  2. Training volume when not signed up to anything

    That's what i reckon. In my last two Ports I would have done a max of 7-8 hours per week. I note this is not normal as I fracture my tibia late 2015 and put my own limitations on training to enable full recovery. Port for 2018 I will be back to normal training but I reckon I still will be doing max of 13-17 hours per week. It's called work family kids, and living life. As a basis though I think what IP said 2 post above is a very fair assessment.
  3. Training volume when not signed up to anything

    Got to ask.... what sort of times were you doing based on this amount of training? This seems totally over the top for most people. I am guessing you must be an ex pro and a regular top 10 finisher on this sort of training. Sub 9 ironman must be a regular thing.... lucky bugger!
  4. Trump is the President

    That's a lie. Last time I played with him I stood on his ball out in the rough and he said to me.... I need to take a penalty cause I can't find my ball. Fair enough I said, but he said he lost it on the green next to the pin. I could hardly say he was cheating could I!!!!!
  5. ATEC Expo Cancelled

    I wonder how the attendance would be if they had a gold coin donation as an entry fee. As said seems to work for the ski industry...and they have stall holders from resorts the world over coming to promote there wares. They pay to promote their gear and resorts. Maybe they just have bigger pockets. Also.... I am sure they are paying a motza to use the new ICV (International Convention Centre).
  6. Latex tubes, worth the faff?

    Someone..... Benefits of latex v's normal tubes?
  7. Same Sex Marriage Vote. How would you vote?

    I think it was a generalisation only........
  8. ATEC Expo Cancelled

    Not at all surprised to hear this. I thought in the past the exhibitors failed to show up. I mean most of the major bike brands didn't bother to turn up and show off there bikes. Also, I am always amazed when there are expo's and the viewing public have to pay to go. The exhibitors should have to fund it...but there lies the big CATCH 22 problem. The ski expo..... viewing public are encouraged to provide a gold coin donation!!!
  9. Same Sex Marriage Vote. How would you vote?

    Better still..... Make all marriages void.
  10. Sharks vs Broncos

    Really....is that how it played........ Clearly no Einsteins in that team!
  11. Frodo validates

    He wasn't going to get a world record or such, therefore why bust yourself 3 months out from Kona. Kona will make him more legendary than Austria!

    Referendum View details for Changing the Australian Constitution View Changing the Australian Constitution in a lightbox style window View/Download PDF of Changing the Australian Constitution View/Download hi-res version of Changing the Australian Constitution Changing the Australian Constitution In Australia, a referendum is a vote used to approve a change to the Australian Constitution. Section 128 of the Constitution sets out certain rules that must be followed in order for a change to be approved. Process A proposed change to the Constitution must start as a bill (proposed law) presented to the federal Parliament. If the bill is passed by the Parliament, the proposal must then be presented to Australian voters in a referendum. The referendum must take place no sooner than two months and no later than six months after the bill is passed. Before the referendum is held, members of parliament prepare arguments for or against the proposed change. These are sent to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC), which is in charge of running federal elections and referendums. The AEC arranges for the 'Yes' and 'No' cases, along with a statement of the proposed change, to be posted to every Australian on the electoral roll. On polling day, the voting process is similar to that used for federal elections, in which polling places are established at schools and other public buildings around the country. Each voter's name is marked off the electoral roll and they are given a ballot paper. Voters then write 'Yes' or 'No' in a box opposite the proposed change on their ballot-paper. Results A referendum is only passed if it is approved by a majority of voters across the nation and a majority of voters in a majority of states (this is known as a double majority). Territory voters are only counted in the national majority. If a referendum is successful, the change must be implemented. Plebiscite In Australia, a plebiscite (also known as an advisory referendum) is used to decide a national question that does not affect the Constitution. It can be used to test whether the government has sufficient support from the people to go ahead with a proposed action. Unlike a referendum, the decision reached in a plebiscite does not have any legal force. Australia has held two national plebiscites, in 1916 and 1917, relating to the introduction of conscription during the First World War; both were defeated. No specific rules exist about the running of a plebiscite. In the event that another plebiscite was conducted, it may be that the Parliament will decide on the rules of operation
  13. Things to do in Sydney

    Don't think so.... Run over to North Sydney Pool for a swim - fantastic looking back at the city or up at the bridge.
  14. Help me pick a multi-tool

  15. Things to do in Sydney

    PieMan.... From O'Connell street run down George Street until you hit Circular Quay and follow the water through Farm Cove, Mrs Macquarie's Chair and up past Boy Charlton pool and the Art Gallery and the botanical gardens and return. Another good one is go across the Harbour bridge and do a loop past North Sydney Pool and Luna Park (along the boardwalk)... til the end and head up some stairs and make your way down Blues Point Road to Blues point...... check a map...pretty easier to route.
