    Running Songs Recommendations

    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

    HFLC ruined my life......

    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.

    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.

    Running Songs Recommendations

    I'm on the comeback trail and at present using treadmill. I used to like listening to podcasts particularly on long runs. As my sessions are pretty short at the moment I'm listening music. I was on the treadmill yesterday listening to music and "what I like about you" came on and found it a little easier to run along to (obviously speed didn't change on treadmill).

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    I may have it wrong a long time ago but I think Allen, Molina, Dragan were top 3, not sure what order and I thought it may have been just a swim run after first one as the bike was so dangerous. All the roads were open to traffic, we were riding between cars at lights. It was hectic. Over next few years did Dubbo, Forbes, Canberra, long course on Mornington peninsula which Stephen foster won i think, nowra, Wagga etc

    Noosa wave times

    Sign up in mates. When the waves come out if your age group is earlier by a time that makes a difference to you transfer into that. You can’t do it the other way around as mates fills up quickly.

    Flu shot

    My work provides it for free and I was having it till about 5 years ago when I had it on a Friday, went for a run the next morning and felt like the side I had the injection was asleep from head to toe. Went to doc said it wouldn’t relate to injection, went to neurologist and so on. Still to this day have the same numbness from head to toe on left side. If I do anything physical say a run left side feels more fatigued than right side.Copped the flu last year for first time. Not good.

    And with all the technology the long standing British men’s marathon record was only broken yesterday.

    Exercises for Lower Back

    Thanks FB. Any chance you could direct to a Youtube clip that may demonstrate deadlift and hip hinge? Or could you demonstrate in your Instagram?

    Exercises for Lower Back

    Looking for some specific exercises/stretches for lower back. Seems to be the area for me that is most sore and stiff after exercising or working in the yard. I don't do any other specific exercises other than swimming, running, biking and doing little of each of these at the moment.

    I only get the opportunity to ride to work during school holidays which is a round trip of 60km from southern end of Gold Coast to Northern end all along beach front which can be pretty busy. During these Christmas school holidays I have not had any issues with any cars, the opposite really all waiting until they can pass and allowing plenty of room. The only issues I have had are pedestrians particularly around Surfers. They seem to like to come out into the bike lane to see if anything is coming. I had one guy look straight at me and continue to walk straight in front of me.
