  1. Go easy the next step is go see a urologist, then there is another investigation a TRUS trans rectal ultra sound and biopsy. The renal ultra sound and 24 hour BP monitors are not routine for high PSA, you must have high blood pressure The PSA level relates to size of prostate, it being high could possibly be due to large prostate. May just be a case of keeping an eye on it, maybe down the track may need channel widening TURP trans urethral resection prostate. I had my PSA level checked before Christmas, I didn't ride a bike for over a week beforehand. My level was above the middle of normal for my age, so I've been advised to recheck in 5 years. Thinking about you mate and hoping everything turns out OK
  2. Got them yesterday (auto correct changes asics to aspics but I haven't been sent you any ass pics - honest) Cheers
  3. Brad Kahlefeldt won parkrun today with a time 15.47 I have to disagree with Wikipedia, They claim he is Waggas greatest athlete obviously not met Goeasy
  4. I've been at bit down since I went to BBQ on Saturday and heard what someone was saying about me "you can't come back to work after you've had to wear a nappy" The truth is (as you can see from photos from earlier post) I kept taking nappy off even when I was still in intensive care. I was two months in hospital and had to relearn how to walk again coordination and balance were the issue I fell out of a wheel chair once. The physios told me only to walk on level ground and not to run. So I ran the Coastal Classic (see MTB/off-road ) I found the story of Tricia Meilli the Central Park jogger truely inspiring " the confidence gained from a physical achievement can be transferred to other parts of life" Recovering from a traumatic brain injury is a long hard road some days I don't even want to get out of bed yesterday was one of those days until I went on trannies and read Flanman's post about his cousins cycling achievements. Thank you for giving me a needed boost.
  5. Wow this is truely inspirational, I've been a bit down the last couple of days, But Gabbies story has inspired me

  13. Thanks it was really good to see you and GregB and I didn't finish last. Onwards and upwards and a bit more time on the bike I'm going to run SMC half marathon on Sunday, the last time I ran this race a bus came through and I had to stop and I got beaten by willie but managed to tag along with Paul Every. Onwards and Upwards - and I hope Willie is there for a rematch
  14. Thanks Mick I didn't realise you came to see me, I don't remember. I still had PTA post traumatic amnesia. It lasted two weeks I think,I remember waking up in Liverpool hospital and thinking I was on a cruise liner. In May I watched the you tube story about Tim Don The man in the halo, I was in the garage going to do an indoor bike session but just sat and cried. Anyway he's just a winging Pom he only broke his neck in one place I broke mine in seven(they were all stable and mended without issue) but it's a good story
  15. I might enter the November race It would be good to catch up
  16. This is very sad news, its made me reflect Nearly two years ago I had a bike accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. I spent two months in hospital. I think I have dodged a bullet. I was a bit down last year. Wasn't working, didn't have a driving licence, legs ached and felt like I'd run a marathon after I had the flu. I wished I had done a proper job with the bike accident, the family would have been financially better off. After a traumatic brain injury you are 3X more likely to suffer mental health issues and 4X more likely to end your life.With the support of friends and trannies esp Flanman( read trannies helping trannies thread)was persuaded to enter park run. I started running again slowly at first, did the Coastal Classic.This was so important to me because of balance issues post TBI I had to relearn how to walk again and the hospital physios told me not to run on uneven ground. Ive meet Flanman at park run a couple of times, I rejoined local tri club. I did my first club sprint Triathlon a couple of weeks ago I came last but in my mind just entering I had won. All this made me realise how close I could have come to serous mental health issues and I am so thankful that I dodged that bullet, and thank you Tenpints and Flanman I know if ever I need to talk you'd have an ear, It's reassuring. Trannies helping Trannies
  17. M7 bike path, close to race you can't get lost and best of all you don't have to deal with Sydney drivers. I've done two laps of M7 as last long ride before IM Its lit up so you can ride in the dark if you want

  21. Mick don't be so hard on yourself I can be your training partner Swimming I'm not a member of your exclusive pool, but Camden Oylimpic pool opens Saturday Cycling I can bring my bike and dumb trainer round to yours or we could go on M7 Running I don't need to drive past your place anymore to get to park run, a new park run has started in Camden. Parkruns are a really good way to get your mojo back We could do park run then go for a swim - then a well earned coffee Just make training fun and the fitness goes up and the weight goes down
  22. Good work Nealo, The New Guy, rory-dognz, Tall Paul You must of been glad it cooled down a bit from yesterday

  24. Finished Very happy, the goal was sub 4.20(six foot track minimum criteria) I ran 4.17 I had a bike crash last year and spent two months in hospital, I had to relearn how to walk. The physios told me not to run on uneven ground HA HA look at me now a coastal classic finisher. The DOMS feels so good today, I'm on my way back

    Tim Don

    I watched Tim Don Ironman Legend on you tube last night. I don't care if he wins Kona or not he is my hero. I was totally inspired today and trained like Tim Don-that's my new saying to train like Tim Don
