  • Year of first Tri race?
  1. Trail Running

    The family are heading down to UTA next year. Wife did the 100 this year and will do it again but not enter until closer to the date as she always ends up injured if enters too early. I am going to do the 22 as someone needs to look after Miss 6. Should be a good week!
  2. Looking forward to running Saturday. First have to move house tomorrow. Feel unprepared and hopefully don't lose any gear in the move 😄
  3. Trail Running

    Got out this morning and went for an easy 9km around Urambi Hill. Maps.Me was my friend as even though it was very open, I struggled to spot some trail heads in some places and took a while to realise I was looking for gates half the time. Nice scenery though!
  4. Trail Running

    I arrived in Canberra yesterday arvo so missed it by a whisker. Wife is down here for work so myself and little miss 6 followed for some sightseeing on school holidays. We are staying at tuggeranong, I'm going to look to do parts of that course for a 16km run Wednesday morning. Hopefully don't get lost. Had an easy 6km this morning around the lake. -3 a bit different to the usual training runs in the Gold Coast ?
  5. Trail Running

    Wife did her first 100. Impinged her fat pas in the knee early so probably walked 20km more than would have. No buckle but finished!
  6. Trail Running

    Back in for Coastal High 50 this year. Looking forward to trying to better my 7.03 from last year.
  7. 2017 Goals - What are they?

    Oh and maybe actually get time to swim and ride this year ð
  8. 2017 Goals - What are they?

    Coastal High 50 - sub 7hrs. 7.03 last year, so hopefully it's not far away. Go sub 20 at Parkrun. 20.43 is pb in amoungst my big weeks training for Coastal. Not getting any younger though.
  9. What's with so many drownings? Nsw

    I wonder how many of the 5 could have prevented these... Fence the pool Shut the gate Teach your kids how to swim - it's great Supervise, watch your mate Learn how to resuscitate We must never lose sight of those. They work and they are important. As for such a large amount in NSW, such a large population. But still over that I'd say.
  10. Gold Coast to Brunswick heads

    Could always turn off at Kingscliff and take the Coast road down through Cabarita, Hastings, Pottsville etc. I've only ridden on the roads of Hastings and Pottsville when we went down camping and Tweed Enduro. You'll end up on Wooyung road which goes under the motorway and join the old pacific highway which will take you to Brunswick. I don't know whether it makes it longer or shorter. But I wouldn't want to be on the motorway this time of year.
  11. 1991 ITU Worlds Finish

    I 'interviewed' Miles when I was in Year 5. My teacher's daughter was dating him. So she arranged for him to come in and we fired questions at him. Would have been 93 if my Maths is correct. A great memory that I look back on as something that has influenced my teaching career.
  12. As the title suggests, I have some pain at the back off my knee when running uphill. Sore to touch with the foam roller. Since August, I have run a few longer events. Yarabilba Trail 21km, Coastal High 50, Melbourne Marathon and Freedom Trail 25km. Which took me up to mid November. I'm wondering if it is an over running injury. My left leg feels 'week'. Can't really describe it, but it's like I don't have control over the leg in my stride. Was hoping I wouldn't need to go to the physio. But have rested a few weeks and no change.
  13. Garmin HR Strap playing up...

    I'm having issues too. I had no problems for 9 months running. Had some issues, so I replaced the battery. No change, tried everything else except a new strap. Couldn't be bothered, so not wearing one. It's a shame as I spent a long period training MAF and saw good results. I might upgrade shortly to a wrist based HRM.
  14. Trail Running

    Very low key event with no frills. We camped the night before and it was a nice laid back vibe happening. The 25k appeared to have a lot of downhill, my Garmin said exactly the same up as down. I think the downs were just longer stretches. Nice location, plenty of areas for improvement in the event, but that would probably drive the price up and make it something it's not.
  15. Trail Running

    I am running the 25km at the Freedom Trail run in Nightcap National Park next weekend. I know very little about the course and have run a total of 10km since the Melbourne Marathon. Family camping weekend with the family.
