  1. not sure about that one but I run Kirra Parkrun most weekends and it is possible to do Kirra which starts at 7 and Kingscliff which starts at 8. There was a message on facebook around the time daylight saving finished this year that if you did Kingscliff as well the result at Kingscliff would not count.
  2. Has anyone supplemented bike time with spin classes? I hadn't been doing anything for quite a while and as a consequence lost all fitness. For the past 8 weeks I have been attending about 4 spin classes a week ranging from 30 to 40 minutes and one parkrun. The spin classes are intense. Definitely gets me focused for the time I'm in the class but I can't comment how this converts to riding on the road as I haven't done anyone lately although my parkrun time has improved each week without any other running. For me it seems a really efficient way to get a solid but short workout.

    All good I’m not complaining. I did live for 20 years in Southwest NSW where the temperatures on many days began at less than zero and didn’t get much over 10 in winter. Unfortunately the 10 was while I was at work so training was usually at the coldest time of day. Not unusual to have fog and/or rain on many of those days, the fog sometimes not lifting till midday. Sheepskin mittens, balaclavas etc were the order of the day. And then in summer maximums usually around 35-40. As many of the comments/suggestion in this thread have suggested early morning starts I was just saying it can get at least cool by your standards in Qld at 5am in the morning.

  8. According to the rules that's for the Police and the courts to decide. "Under Australian Road Rule 125, a driver must not unreasonably obstruct the path of another vehicle. However, ‘obstruct’ doesn’t just mean the other car is driving slower than you. Rather, they’d need to be travelling abnormally slowly. But what exactly is ‘abnormally’ slow? Well that would be for the police and courts to assess depending on the circumstances. However, the road rules do provide one example –driving 20km/h in an 80km/h zone without reason would be classed as abnormal. A good tip to remember here is that drivers travelling below the speed limit should be aware of traffic build-up behind them and provide opportunities for that traffic to pass. Indeed, under section 45 of the road rules, it’s an offence to drive without reasonable consideration for other road users"

    Trekz air. At the moment I have used them mainly on tram, train, bus and notice the vibration. Not so much when I have run in them.

    I also have them. Do you notice any vibration?
  13. Not sure if you delete songs from the original list Cranky. I don't know how to do the link but for those interested here is my initial list. Took most of the advice, googled beats per minute but in some cases songs that had high beats seemed quite slow when listening. Plus some were just old favourites that are upbeat. Probably favourite out of this lot when it comes on while running is Joker and the Thief. Ca plane pour moi - Plastic Bertrand What I like about you - The Romantics Joker and the Thief - Wolfmother Pompeii - Bastille Shut up and dance - Walk the moon Sorry - Justin Beiber Love yourself - Eminem Blisters in the sun - Violent Femmes Turning Japanese - The Vapours Runnin' down a dream - Tom Petty Hey Ya - Outkast Semi-Charmed life - 3rd eye blind Whip it - Devo Cars - Gary Numan Tainted Love - Soft Cell Jackson - Johny Cash June Carter We will rock you - Queen Happy - Pharrell Williams I saw her standing there - the beatles Don't stop me now - Queen Back in Black -ACDC Love Shack - B-52s Should I stay or should I go - The Clash My sharona - The Knack
  14. Advice from dietician a few years ago that had completed their degree only a couple of years earlier. Combination of carbs/protein/veggies each meal and it was basically a kilojoules counting diet. eg. Dinner could be carb - 1 cup cooked rice, protein 250g skinless chicken breast, veggies unlimited non-starchy vegetable.
  15. Thanks new guy will have a listen Just googled songs by beats per minute. Found a few more I like so have added them to the list. Now on the lplay list thanks Torn. I just got trekz for Christmas so at the moment just throw the phone on the treadmill but when I do get out the phone will go in pocket. Trekz don’t go in your ears so eliminates that issue.
