  1. Drive to hornsby and park at the pool and ride the old pacific hwy
  2. Anyone know of any of these sales still going? My current watch died an honourable death
  3. If anyone is keen to offload some family friendly reasonably priced accom let me know. (I realise the insanity of trying to find reasonably priced accom around IM time)
  4. Just wanted to thank everyone for this well wishes and help I ended up getting a second opinion on my collarbone and getting it plates this Monday, which has definitely helped me out with the breathing and taking the load off the broken ribs. I am getting used to being quite lazy as I also fractured the ischial tuberosity which makes walking a pain in the ass literally!! I should be getting a new bike through home and contents insurance which is exciting? Decisions to be made their do I stick with current bike or go something different Photos of collarbone pre second opinion for attention and sympathy
  5. Hi Turts hips will be ok as they are both bone frags at the top of hip, I can walk pretty slowly. Thanks everyone for the advice its pretty frustrating and nuts that some idiot took pleasure in knocking me off my bike.
  6. Hi mate, no operation needed in the fractures so just rest and conservative treatment
  7. Hi guys Seeking some advice on recovery times and recovery hacks from a recent unsavoury incident. I was riding Saturday and had someone throw something from an overpass bridge hitting me on the side of the head and the force knocking me off the bike. I now have fractured collar bone, 2 fractured ribs and fractured both sides of hips and then there’s the bike. My question is around recovery times for anyone who has experienced similar injuries and anything that may have helped speed the process up?
  8. There was a pack of guys who sat on me through out the ride it was appalling
  9. Cmon man, these pros that have changed aren’t new to the sport. These are guys who have been around Mackenzie, Reed, Berkel and Hoffman and that’s just the men. Do you think that Gwen Jorgensen is running in these shoes because they are slower?
  10. The vapourfly 4% are an interesting shoe, I have the model below it and find them a quick shoe although not the most comfortable. A number of pro’s have forgone their shoe sponsorship and forked out the $$$ to run in these shoes this season, gotta be a strong reason for that

  12. All the above article shows is an absence of sugars in the blood not a reversal of Type 2, that's creative licensing. If diet and exercise were so successful I would be out of a job.I don't see people's beta cells(which control insulin production) regenerating, they simply just slowed the escalator they are on to insulin dependence
  13. I'm a pharma rep and work in Type 2 Diabetes space. I don't take supplements just get what I need from good food. I can see the merit in some alternative therapies, I still laugh at the nutters who tell me they can reverse Type 2 Diabetes , science proves you can't
  14. Hi guys I stupidly have injured myself in the weekend thinking I was a soccer star. I have a grade two tear to my rt rectus femoris and have also managed a 2mm avulsion tear off the bone in doing this. I was after any recommendations for a good orthopaedic surgeon in Sydney withgood exposure to athletes and endurance sports. So shoot me your recommendations thanks
