    What training did you do today...

    Parkrun with Stikman and kid. I have a feeling my run was more pleasant than Stikman's.

    I think the point is that we progressively lower the bar of acceptable behaviour with these kinds of attitudes which makes it less of a leap to do bad things. Once the individual (the victim, be them male or female) is dehumanised, it's easier to justify the violence for the perpetrator. It saddens me that men are all lumped together in the way they are. I am often annoyed by the focus on violence against females when that is just one part of a much bigger problem of violence against others. We as a society appear to be becoming more selfish, less respectful, and generally more tolerant of violence against each other. It's a big problem that requires across the board change. Violence against women is just one part.

    Ah, no. This occurs daily to most women in some way or another The examples you suggest of women in power are the exceptions. Not the rule.

    I understand some men are in some way offended by this ad. I fail to appreciate why. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Ironman WA (Busso) 2018

    Did anyone think 'Simone' was someone else? I was definitely in good spirits. What I am not sure Stikman accurately conveyed in his reference to me and my race was that it actually all went perfectly to plan for me. I went into it with the intention to really take my time and use every minute I could. I didn't want to feel rushed. And I didn't. In fact although it was a bloody long day, it was by far the most enjoyable IM I've done. The first one I was rushed and felt like I was always going to miss the cutoffs. The second one I felt rushed as I wanted to smash my previous time, and I did. This time, I knew what I was in for, I knew what I was capable of. I hit each of my targets and felt no pressure. Not even toward the end when the cutoff started to loom. I knew I had more than enough time to get there, and I did comfortably. I had always set out to get around with the least amount of effort and the most amount of fun. I honestly enjoyed it all.

    Biggest Loser - January 2019 Reboot

    68.3 Although it is a loss, I am a bit disappointed. Earlier in the week I had been a kilo down and really did nothing different for the remainder of the week with the exception of eating out last night. It was an effectively keto meal with the addition of a half a cup of german potato salad. Up half a kilo on yesterday. There will be salt in there as well as the effect of a few carbs, but I still don't like it. Weight loss requires diligence and consistency. Lesson learned.

    Finished nightshift this morning. Had a 4 hour sleep then did 30 mins in the pool and then slaughtered myself during 15 mins of TDZ till I threw in the towel like the softie I am. Note to self - start doing more races in Zwift so not always complete softie.
