Am set up at coral bay now, will drive up to Exmouth early tomorrow to pick dad up, my daughters 9th birthday tomorrow so will spend most of day in Exmouth before heading back to coral bay. Another perfect WA sunset tonight. Serviced the car before heading off today and an uneventful drive down apart from the approx 80 wee stops between the kids 😂

    Best cheapest smart trainer for zwift

    i got a Tacx Flux 3 weeks ago, works fine, connects to the laptop for zwift with no issues ( I use ant + dongle) It has picked up a squeak and the shop back in Perth is replacing it under warranty, still works fine just a tad annoying with the squeak. I paid $950 for it

    yeah our kids do this, we go and hide them around town, then others find it, paint it and do the same thing, my kids have found some pretty cool rocks painted up.

    To beard or not to beard

    I'm bored (speaking of which, where has @bored@work gone) There's a raging debate going on at work about whether i should grow a beard or not in the build up to busso this year, the fellas here reckon i should not only grow one now but race with it also (be a bit like forest gump), I think Busso is 17 weeks out and I currently have about a weeks growth going, gives me plenty of time to get some luscious beard growth. I've never grown one for more than about 2 weeks. Mrs wont be impressed but the fellas reckon she will ultimately fall in love with it. I'm not the type to manicure it though, i'd just let it grow wild, and i suspect it will be ginger Any downside to having a beard?

    You should go to the doctor EX, lumps are not normal.

    What training did you do today...

    Life has happened a bit today, planned 3hr ride and 45 min run, got 1hr 10 done on zwift due to dangerous winds outside, went and did 45 min run after but I’m now playing nurse to the wife who went to a girlfriends last night and wiped herself out, I got a call at stupid o’clock to go and get her as she had passed out. I’ve given her a spray about it as I had to put the kids in the car to go and get her and I don’t want kids seeing that. Honestly at 36 years old I thought most people were past that type of behaviour. I’m don’t drink so I guess I’m out of touch with with that type of behaviour.. and the kids are feral today 😳

    HFLC ruined my life......

    Check out diet doctor website on how to start off, he has a two week plan set up and will help in getting ready to kick off, all the info is on his site and it’s free. Steph also has a fb page called LCHF Endurance.

    Plastic bag ban.....

    I have a house full of eco warriors, but i struggle to remember what can and can not go in the yellow lid recycle bin, an app would be brilliant for me personally. Side note - Does anyone here have a bogashi bin, we have just strated using one and it has cut down the volume of waste that goes into our waste wheelie bin, when i took the bin out this week i noticed a substantially lighter bin than what we have had in the past, but our recycle bin was nearly full.

    they are just amazing creatures, I've had the pleasure of diving with them several times over here in Exmouth and coral bay. Awesome experience for you A2K

    Who??

    I find it utterly beyond comprehension why an adult male feels as though he is entitled to molest a child or anyone for that matter. this is the one thing that sends chills down my spine and makes me so mad. Its gross, these are children who should not be subjected to this predatory behavior. I could not be a cop because the sick bastards would not make it to court. This and rape. If he is guilty he should be shot and not waste our tax payers money on.

    they have had another kid by the looks of it
  16. As I've documented on the Mental health page, my Dad is not well, and its had an effect on me to a certain degree. I've offered my dad a two week camping trip up through the Kimberley next year with my 4 yr old boy and I, Dads agreed to come along which is great, hopefully its given him something to look forward to. and with that I now have another thing to focus on and that is getting my Ute ready for a good trip up into gods country! I took last week off training as I had a couple of niggles, head was spooked after dads attempt on his life and I just generally felt flat and disinterested, i got dropped on a bunch ride at only 32 km/h average, so that was my limit where i needed to say stop, go and have a week off and rest! work on myself and something other than swim bike run. So I compiled a list of mods i want to do on my Ute.....theres a lot! but its given me something to focus on that will enable a good trip away with my dad! this past week I have put in dual batteries on my Ute and wired them up, installed a 12v compressor in a very tight spot and wired it up and is working also, its re ignited my passion for getting the Ute built up to be a capable tourer again. We also spent plenty of time at the beach this past week What do you do other than triathlon training / racing

    What do you do to get away from Triathlon?

    Hi AJ Mate its very simple what i do because I'ma very simple person, i just found some spare little rhino bits, they just have a square base with the bolt threat on them, drop them in the slots on the rack, drilled a hole in the frame of the solar panel, spring washer, washer and nylock nut. As it tightens its spins the base around and locks up tight on the rack.. I have 4 batteries in this Ute, crank battery, then a 100 amp marine battery under the bonnet, i went with that because of the heat and AGM's don't like excessive heat, the marine battery is only running aux power to all my 12 v points and the compressor, also wired it up to be able to jump start the Ute if the crank one dies. Then i have 2 100 amp deep cycle AGM in the back, running the two fridges, one as a freezer, i wanted to have the fridges independent of everything else, so I've got shitloads of power. everyone is saying the 250 watt panel is way overkill, but in reality it's not, i worked out the amp draw on the two fridges and If im stationary for a few days i will need the big panel to keep everything how i want it. My dad also has a sleep apnea machine, and ive worked out i can run his machine off the marine battery for approx 2.5 nights without having to charge. the solar panel does not supply the marine battery. oops got sidetracked, i just like talking about what I've done ha ha, attached is the type of bolts i used to mount it

    Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    I spotted an A P on the names on the side, no idea if it was the A P or not, the companion app is pretty handy, saves me reaching over the bars to choose which direction i want to turn. Im still learning, last week i built a session according to my TP plan and it was FTP intervals, so i started and then i ended up climbing a bloody mountain, managed to hold the power but no the RPM haha

    Took the daughter on her first ride on her new MTB in the bush! She was pretty stoked she didn’t crash and get a scratch.

    I head away on my Kimberly trip next week and I'm nearly ready, hooked up the big 250 Watts oar panel yesterday, it all works perfectly, very happy with how it has all come together. Just make up a few Led light strips to hook up to the gazebo for some light and re do the LED light in the canopy and then I just wait until i finish at work next Wednesday and head off, 1st stop will be coral bay and exmouth to pick dad up, then inland to tom price and karinjini, before dropping back into Karratha for a night and offload the wife and kids, then Dad and I will head off north. Looking forward to it.

    I enjoy watching Daniela race, i hate how we always seem to jump to conclusion that someones cheating because they are dominant, maybe she just works harder than all her competitors, has a good coach, sticks to the plan, looks after herself and has some serious talent in the sport. Good on her. In the video after her race last night the guy mentions she has the WR, first thing she asked was yeah but is the course accurate. I think shes a genuine superstar of the sport and cant wait to see her smash some of the boys in Kona.
