  1. Starting Again

    My last race was the Penrith half in 2016 I just started in January. All runs have been easy I've been wearing Hokas while my hips and knees toughen up. On the bike mainly indoor trainer just sufferfest and you tube, I haven't got wahoo/trainer road. Swimming drills and long slow 400 no sprinting fast 50s yet

    I'll get online when I get home this weekend, I fact the last ride I remember before Christmas was near Mittagong via thirlmete, Buxton and hill top then back via yerrinbol,Bargo and Picton. Not that I'd be able or allowed to do that today was thinking of Northern Road up to Luddenham this sat, I just have to find a bike to ride so it may get cancelled Good luck Mick and I hope it cools down a bit before you ride

  7. Taking the Plunge

    Wow I'm really tempted, even though I'm still lying in a hospital bed after a bad bike crash, and I've just had crainiotomy ,thoracotomy , fractured ribs, clavicle surgery. I can still move my arm OK and have gotten into trouble for swimming by the physios . I've just got to convince my wife to drive me as I still can't drive yet. It is just 750/20/5 in April isn't it? It will be my Ironman ,just got to finish yea
