  5. Following this thread -thanks katz just watched Ironman Port Mac, started using wahoo kicker and rejoined aquafit - local gym with 25m indoor pool. I'm excited about IM comeback
  6. I'm new to trainer road I'm just on second week of sweet spot base module. So I'm here to learn, my FTP has fallen from 292 to 206 and I've gained a couple Kg so a lot of work to do over winter. But it gives you a lot of data - power, IF, TSS I have no interest in 'speed' or 'distance' . I was given a wahoo kicker V1 all I've bought is Bluetooth cadence and HR, was the first time I'd been in a bike shop in over 2 years. I got a pair of bike shoes from Roxxi and I'm right back into cycling again
  7. hey Go easy and Turtle I hope I don't see you at the finish line, Ive volunteered for the medical area. So I hope all trannies finish in reasonable shape and I don't meet me, but I would be up for a catch up in Katoomba for lunch/coffee on friday we have a volunteers meeting from 16.00 - 18.00
  8. Thank you Tri NSW and elite energy putting on an excellent event despite the drought. Caught up with a couple of trannies on the run but unfortunately had to head back so couldn't attend the post race party. So a big shout out to miss jess and ironjimbo who I said Hi to and Hi to gregb who I saw in starting line up but I started at the back so didn't say Hi hope some of this rain moves west they really need it, they should rename Orange they should call it Brown
  9. Brooks in action today, much better than the old Hokas
  10. 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
  11. Got them yesterday (auto correct changes asics to aspics but I haven't been sent you any ass pics - honest) Cheers
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Wow this is truely inspirational, I've been a bit down the last couple of days, But Gabbies story has inspired me
  15. It was perfect temp, back in chorine pool today - 😞
  16. Add to my entry buy Go Easy a beer in Bondi Pub after the city to surf
  17. Just spent a week staying in The Entrance swam in ocean pool nearly every day(see what training did you do today thread) ran double park run Entrance and Mt Penang, 3 hr trail run Bouddi park, 2 hr beach run to Norah Head and a 10k easy run on Tuggerah lake path If it wasn't for all the burgers from Carl's Junior I might even be fit
  18. 2.5 k swim at Entrance ocean pool, training for Australia Day Aquathon
  19. I did the double parkrun as well, up at the entrance .Met a guy training for UTA who shares home parkrun with me.
  20. Life - get back to work after two years off recovering from bike accident sporting- get back to triathlon -sub 20 parkrun -sub 1.40 HM Continue rebuilding life and getting things back to normal after accident and traumatic brain injury
  21. easy 5 k recovery run then a easy 1.5km swim with pull bouy This is after sprint races on Sat and Sun
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. I might enter the November race It would be good to catch up
  25. 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.
