    What training did you do today...

    Second last long ride before race day. 120ks. Was almost quite a bit shorter after I narrowly missed running over the tail end of a 1.2-1.5m effing snake crossing the path! Scared the ****ING SHIT out of me! I was hyperventilating and wanted nothing more in the world than to turn around and go home. And, who goes to the supermarket the day before long ride day and doesn't think to buy ice cream? An idiot, that's who. And finally, for Perth peeps, the long diversion around the work near Roe Hwy has not taken effect yet. It looks ready to go, but it was still only the short diversion this morning.

    I have a similar question. My race wheels have the continental 4000 whatevers on the, did Busso in 2014 and the half in May 2015 plus about another 500ks in total. Likely ok or change?

    The Mental Health thread

    Sunday, I think it was, I got a message from my Dad saying he and his long term partner (who I despise) were more than likely splitting up. I called him immediately, we chatted a bit, he said he was basically fine with it all, he told me he would be living with my brother for a while, and we pretty much left the conversation at that. Today I get a message from my brother asking if he can call tonight as he needs some advice. He told me Dad is staying with him after he picked him up from hospital where he was discharged today following being admitted yesterday subsequent to an intentional overdose. Apparently the second this year. He wasn't so much seeking advice but more telling me where things were up to and also asking forgiveness for not telling me about any of it sooner. Not sure what I am thinking right now. Just kind of putting it out there.

    Stikman kindly suggested I browse the list for competitors in my age group from traditionally non-swimming nations to make myself feel better that I may not, that's right may not, be the last swimmer out of the water in my age group. He's very supportive.
