  1. How healthy is Triathlon

    I remember that. I think it was 2011-2013 there were a lot of mud runs, tough mudders, warrior dashes. I had friends begging me to do it with them again. To be honest I got sick of ruining perfectly good running gear. Among the folks I know now, the big thing is trail running. Some of these folks have done triathlons, not sure why some are moving away, but some of it looks to be bike related, some of it is the fact you can walk a UTA and still finish within cutoff! I do know folks who will never do a triathlon, for most, it is the swim, but some it is the bike.
  2. Long Course Weekend - Jervis Bay LCW

    I'm entered for Nepean, as above, it's a big one for Hills and PTC.
  3. Sydney Marathon

    I scored a bib off a workmate for the 10k. Happy with my time, 1:09:57, was trying for a sub 1:10. Nice warm up for Forster Ultimate.
  4. I don't think he is ever going to die!
  5. How long to wait after a chest cough?

    I waited until the muck stopped being green as well as making sure I was not spending a large portion of my shower clearing my lungs!
  6. How do i become a better runner keeping HR low

    Following as I am finding it a hard slog to get below 30mins for 5k, and I know there are others out there the same size as me doing it...
  7. ATEC Expo Cancelled

    I found limited triathlon race clothing at last years one. I think only fast gear (with limited clothing stock) and Dare2Tri were there. If they had secured all of the suit suppliers then I probably would have shown up, although September is too late for custom orders, but if they had standard kit there to buy I would have probably bought a suit, as well as some tri shorts. Seemed to be an awful lot of nutrition stands last year. I also missed having Paul Newsome and the endless pool, I spent 15 minutes with him and fixed up a bunch of stuff with my swim
  8. City 2 Surf Bondi Breakfast?

    Was there caught up with Stem
  9. City 2 Surf Bondi Breakfast?

    I'm still going, I have access to the work marquee. But I am also hitting up the pub afterward.
  10. the 2017/18 financial year cost of pool swimming

    Atmosphere Penrith, paying $55 a fortnight for access to a 50m indoor pool, gym, aerobics, swim squads, and as many ergvideo bike sessions as I can fit in. Not sure about the local pools - Ripples in St Marys seems to have a lot of "chockitos" from what I see on facebook. Not going near it!
  11. What training did you do today?

    20min easy run and weight set. First back after being sick for the last 10 days!
  12. Season 2017/18

    Looks like it's not on. The interest was not there, which is a shame as it was a nice location, we stayed back for dinner after the presentation and also got into some country and western music in the main bar later. I like injecting cash into places like that, Forbes has had a hard run over the years.
  13. Season 2017/18

    Hills dates through to December are sorted. October 15, November 18 and December 17. Word has it that dates for 2018 are yet to be given out.
  14. Season 2017/18

    Plans are in the works...in addition to Hills club races Ultimate Forster (first go at the distance) Nepean Cadbury Half Mara NSW Club Champs Port 70.3 Still deciding on Mooloolaba, Wyong, Canberra.
  15. What training did you do today?

    Yesterday was the usual 90min indoor session and parkrun. Nothing today, I'm sick. I think I have picked up the cold from work or the train.
