    Not entered yet because I'm a commitment-phobe, but I hope to be there for the full.

    Anti Fog Solution (For Goggles)

    One drop of baby shampoo on finger, rub over the inside of both lenses. Costs like $5 for 10 lifetimes worth.

    Nike Zoom VapourFly do make you run faster

    "Shuffling" at 4:30/km seems pretty good to me!

    WTB - Left speedplay pedal

    Just looking for anything in the bog standard Zero range. Was resigned to buying a new pair, just seemed wasteful to chuck out one perfectly good pedal for the want of it's partner :-)

    WTB - Left speedplay pedal

    Did you lose or break your right speedplay zero pedal, leaving a perfectly good left pedal? Did you think (like I do for my right pedal) "why would I throw out this perfectly good left pedal?" Are you willing to part with that orphaned perfectly good left pedal for cash? If so, let me know...

    Garmin 935 $399 at rebel - good value?

    Love this watch. They recently upgraded the firmware so now activities from all garmin devices appear in your watch in the history - e.g. record a bike ride on an edge bike computer, upload it, sync the watch and now the ride appears as an activity. Makes the "weekly active minutes", and training load/recovery more accurate (it used to only take into account activities recorded on the watch itself).

    Is triathlon dead in Sydney?

    Thanks for the background info. It's really good to know why decisions were made.

    What training did you do today...

    Not sure if you are actually referring to the existing running club but yeah that's already a thing : https://www.facebook.com/groups/650499288335106/ They do heaps of parkruns around Australia... http://www.parkrun.com/results/consolidatedclub/?clubNum=21413

    All things NRL

    Yep this was also my reaction too - he has so much form for dirty play, but seems to not have the reputation others do. Add to the sliding in with the feet the period where he was kicking out when taking high balls. I was also at Leichhardt the arvo he kicked out and hit Skandalis in the head - I'm sure he got a week or two for that too.

    The two on Windsor Road in Rouse Hill this year you can "just ride through", because they don't seem to be making any contact (maybe they haven't got a taste for blood yet). The one that was there a few years ago though was an expert at nipping your ear - good luck riding through that with traffic going 80km/h right next to you.

    Fixing a leaky shower

    Interesting re: tiling over the top of the existing tiles. One of our problems is that the existing tiles are on the outer/wrong side of the bath lip, so if we built over the existing tiles that would fix, or at least help, that problem. Very jealous of the snow lifestyle - did one season working in a kids ski school in America - great fun.

    Fixing a leaky shower

    Cool thanks. It's a full brick house so no problems in the walls - the joists underneath the bathroom don't appear to be wet at all, and the termite guards are in place. It was termite inspected 18 months ago when we bought it and they didn't find anything. Cool thanks I'll check it out. Would you go that product first to fill the majority of the gap, then a normal silicone fillet on top? Yep I agree with you - it wasn't done right previously, now I'm just trying to decide the best course of action. I was worried though that 7mm is possible too much of a gap to fill with silicone alone?
