    My new bike purchase

    I'm pretty certain that one is a Malvern Star. The guard looks right, and I think I can just make out a star on the head tube.

    OT saving lives

    I found out an interesting fact last week when I donated. I've been knocking off the nurofen & putting up with a bit of pain for the week before donations because I'd been told that you can't donate if you've had anti-inflammatories. I figured I could put up with a little pain each fortnight. It turns out that you can't donate whole blood, but plasma is still fine. That will make things a bit easier from now on.

    Challenge Melbourne results (1:55 bike split)

    I recall years back a young girl was DQed for drafting (before penalty boxes). I saw her mum launching into the lead draft buster & the RD and was threatening to take it further, when the girl came up and told her mum to settle down, cause she was. Even then her mum didn't want to let it lay.

    What training did you do today?

    5.5km OWS this morning. It was a little brisk jumping in, but fine once I got moving. I could tell it was a little cool though. As an indication, there were about 20 people there yesterday, and I was the only one without a wetsuit. Anyway, I got through the swim feeling good, but about an hour after I got out, I've started shivering and feeling very cold. I mentioned this to the OWS group I'm in, and got told I have to put weight on. I just love those guys.

    Thanks, I figure a lot of people log theirs later, so I took the snap straight away.

    It's been a while since I've managed to be in the top ten, let alone 1. And even Tyno gets into the 10.

    London Marathon

    Mo has dropped off the lead group & is no in 3rd, 7 seconds down at 30km. Predicted time for the winner is still sub 2:03.

    I don't think it's a Malvern Star (mine was) unless it's a girl's version.

    9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    There's a touch of truth there Al, but these days the RD is likely to call it off before it gets bad enough to affect those that didn't go out & train in it. I don't know why you say it's so mentally strengthening though. The most enjoyable training ride I ever did was 180km solo, over Mt Mee & Peachester, in single figure temps and bucketing rain the whole way. Call me mad, but I really enjoyed it out there.

    Quite a cult following for them these days. And yeah, I learnt to ride on one as well. Bright metallic purple, with a purple banana seat.

    What training did you do today?

    Nothing yet, but finally dragged my arse out of bed to go swimming. Hope to edit this in a couple hours. Yep, I got in about 4km this morning. Nice & steady on the way out with my brother, but used the opportunity to chase some Red Dog swimmers on the way back to do some fun surging. One thing that group does need to do though, is learn what colour light to stop on when they are riding. I can't say for sure it was them, but the timing would have been right, and there were a couple in RD kit. Going through Ferny Grove on the way home, and the front few went through an orange light, and about a dozen went through the red. Two stopped. When the light went green, these last 2 ( who had intitially done the right thing) went up the left of a row of cars at the next intersection all with their left indicator on turning into the railway station and the lead one had to suddenly jam their brakes on as they were turning. Great advert for the group.

    Is Ironman Busso Doomed?

    I did a 3 Day IM with the swim in a 25m pool. Luckily only a few of us so we had a lane each, but it's a nightmare swimming flat-out for 3.8km and having to turn every 20 seconds.
