    I'm not fit enough (Bullshit)

    Peter's point is well made. He doesn't care about them racing or not. It's the whole I'm so unfit, when they clearly are. Race, don't race, just don't make it into a narcissistic moment and get everyone to tell you how fit you are. Which is exactly what these people want. Doing 1 hour of intensity spread across three sports is not going to do damage

    Not sure how doing a sprint sort of equal to one hour at near TH across three sports is going to send anyone backwards in fittness

    The Politics Thread

    We should do it because is simple visionary and viable, but no one has done a study. There is no evidence to support the vision and no one who thinks it is worth investing in the feasability. But we will ignore the reference Ex and Paul gave because the evidence does not support the vision

    Sure, which river do you want to divert.

    The Politics Thread

    This century has delivered us Leaders with little to no understanding of our history, environment, place in the world or vision of a better future. Ideas good, bad and in between are manufactured to appeal to narrow base that the respective leader feels will support them in an election or in a workplace. History; Facts; Laws of Physics; Are not relevant for many. The idea is right. If you don't agree with me you need to change. The fact you disagree shows me that my idea and case for change was right and I will pursue my position even more dogmatically until you accept my unilaterally developed position. This discussion will be dressed up in the management consulting industry speak. The purpose of this is to make the above sound sensible and needed. Social media and cheerleaders like Alan Jones and others from the "left" will offer up their assessment which will attack the person not the issue and repackage the original poorly formed idea as awesome and their favourite as the next messiah.

    The Scheme was designed to collect and store water, including water that would otherwise flow east down the Snowy River to the coast, divert it through trans-mountain tunnels and power stations and then release it west of the Snowy Mountains into the catchments of the River Murray and the Murrumbidgee River. There it can be used for town water supply, irrigation and environmental use.

    A message to race directors

    AP most likely does a bit for the sport through attending races, getting others to, promoting the ones he does and likes etc. Like every tri club in Australia

    Truth = going on a radio with a pet presenter saying what you say is truth. Don't know either of these people. Watt based on performance and credentials is a coach of some quality. The other seeks to be Watt by starting cartels and saying look at me. Watt looks like he may have had issues and had a bit of a crack and Millward cried and sought attention

    No medals for teams :-(

    The symbol of achievement, has value and meaning for many of the participants. People getting that token are not deluded into thinking they won the race. Every participant met some goal, to even be there. They paid for that token in their entry. Many won't care. Little kids love wearing them. If RD don't offer them, no issue. When they are part of the offer they should be produced.

    Cricket

    Crowds, poor, performances not that bad, access to coverage poor. Seems like a desperate grab from fox. They are locking away the one day matches, which no one cares about. Most of the Big Bash will be on seven plus the tests.

    How do Pro's afford it

    Don't know what anyones bank balance is. In the 90's when they were running the ITGP (super league), they had Greg Welch cooking for the other athletes at his house. He had a Porsche 911. Shortis think was on the parent subsidy at the start

    Coach or not

    Like Rocky in one of those late Rocky Movies, "I think I still got something to give". So thinking one more ironman (Port Mac). Have been coached before to get best results. Isseu is coaching is expensive and I did not go much worse without a coach. But I stressed myself out a lot with worry as I did not have somebody I trusted to just work it out. Figuring Port Mac is a long way to go so maybe juts go it alone and put all that coaching money into my house and the family

    Coach or not

    "Much of it self created" I am the only person who can make feel anything. Having said that so much of what goes on is irritating to me. But I have to let it do that. The early days with regular short local races having laugh going against your mates each week, in training and races seems to have been lost. Replaced with something different. That seems to be of less substance and more about image than just having a go. Races are professionally run, more people are having a go so there is an upside. I don't have to let if phase me, though the poor behaviours by mostly middle aged men in this sport is a serious turn off.

    And cheaper. Have been finding the simplicity of sbr hard to enjoy with the noise. Much of it self created. Though the culture of tri has changed. Could get by on my own, wanted hep to clam my mind and lift performance above what I could do.
