    Motivating People - Who's yours?

    Honestly I don't really get into the whole motivating people thing, i use to watch some clips by Eric Thomas, he was just essentially calling me Lazy, fair enough too. but i soon got over watching his clips, probably because i was too lazy to watch them anymore. But what i do find motivating is seeing people who have suffered life changing set backs, take Lauren Parker for example, that young lady is extraordinary, gave me goosebumps watching her at the Commonwealth games this year competing after her life changing accident. Thats the stuff i find motivating, the accident wasn't her fault but she has found it within herself to go again after such a traumatic experience.

    What training did you do today...

    Its been great Katz, my daughter is very much a daddy's girl, she'll give anything a crack and we love spending time together & I cant wait to teach her how to free dive one day up here, although she does mention sharks whenever we talk about it, but a few you tube videos on pilbara spear fishing instead of the family movie night on Saturday has her a bit keen, might start her out on a hookah chasing some crays in shallow water before i load a spear for her. Still working on relationship with the Son, him and I dont connect well, but I bought him a packet of Gluten free lollies yesterday so i could at least buy his favoritism for an hour , then he was back to mumma's boy. It's pretty hot up here at the moment and the town is still quiet so a lot of people are still away. Which means lots of time together. I even folded some washing last night so the wife could watch her show uninterrupted, however she did pipe up every now and then and told me i was folding things wrong. I think training for port starts soon

    What training did you do today...

    Not much this weekend actually, I needed a weekend to just chill, so I went and bought a fishing rod and reel, a couple of lures and walked the banks of one of our rivers, got obliterated by a stonker Barra early this morning and only had the one lure, which now means I had none after a good fight with the Barra. Barra 1 kieran 0, came back this arvo with my daughter and she nailed 6 fish and she hooked and landed them all by herself, not bad considering the last time she hooked a fish she threw the rod in a croc infested creek. Today was brilliant, and an awesome arvo with her. First time I’ve fished in years, I prefer spear fishing but today’s land based was great.

    What training did you do today...

    I took my daughter for her first mountain bike race,a few stacks as it was a bit of a sandy course today, but the promise of a cornetto and a swim afterwards kept her going, she got her lap done then I went and did a quick lap myself. Being a dirtmaster (under 13) she’s only allowed to do one lap, she was happy to stand and spray the water pistols at all us big kids on our own laps afterwards. Great afternoon out with her #girlpower she beat some boys!

    The Mental Health thread

    And also a 14 yr old girl from a remote Kimberly community last week, both young girls from aboriginal families, the news article i read on both of them has said there is a review or report being done on the effects of alcohol dysfunction in aboriginal communities, which may be a part of the reason these young kids are taking their lives, having spent a lot of time in the communities up there, alcohol misuse is high even in the communities where there are dry towns, they will head to the outskirts and sit there and drink and be violent, then come back to town. I've seen it with my own eyes. It's terribly sad

    The Mental Health thread

    In the pilbara in the last 4 weeks we have had 6 suicides including a 12 year old girl in port hedland last Sunday. I just found out today that two of the men who passed away i knew personally, worked with one closely about ten years ago and then the last 3 years have been on the same site as him again albeit working for different companies, another was one of the apprentices on this site also. I just wish they had of reached out...to anyone.

    Official Zwift Group RIde

    If no one has any objections to me getting an official Zwift group ride in the program up and running I'd be happy to do it. I have nothing to do at work as we are de mobilizing and receiving redundancies left right and center. It will give me something to do Which course do people want to ride? Average page - w/kg, would 2-2.5w/kg cover off people on here or go lower to say 1.7 for eg Do we need a sweep & lead rider? Let me know and i'm happy to get the ball rolling, if no one wants it this official ill go back to annoying my work colleagues and wave goodbye to them each day as they are made redundant until its my turn.
