  1. Long Course Weekend 2018

    Announced for 19th - 21st October. I'm definitely in... anyone else? It's a great event! Also those that competed last year get 10% discount on entry before 5pm on Friday.
  2. NZ IM Accomodation

    We're staying in Alcapulco motor inn... not the cheapest but I don't think anything is that time really!
  3. The Mental Health thread

    What they said Jess... but on a more serious point if you've had the black dog chatting in your head about "speeding the process up" then please, please go and talk to somebody about it. Your doctor, the Samaritans (you can email them), just somebody. Having been there it's easy to begin to think that those thoughts are just part of life. They're really not. They can also be stopped with the right help. It's easy to get blase about them but they're such a real horrible risk that they need treating just as much as if you found a weird lump! That aside, chin up and as my Pa always says "Noli illegitimi carborundum"
  4. What training did you do today?

    I refused to move house until I could afford paying somebody to solve the whole thing for me!
  5. Any races on? (prep for Port Macq)

    I think I'll be there too for a post IM hit out
  6. BMC Job

    My thoughts exactly... somebody who loves BMC and is inbetween other stuff.

    So glad I managed 21 mins of my 90 minute planned session this morning before bailing. I now feel much less bad!

    Cheers Cranky! Hotel has a gym so I'm gonna try my best to hit the treadmill (it's far too cold outside there). This trip won't be that enjoyable though... 40 hours on a plane, 40 hours in NY!

    Well my crown shall not be mine for long, just bailed on a TR this morning (had nothing after yesterday evenings 32k run) and now I need to fly to NYC which is going to put a brake on almost everything until the weekend.

    Just for the record before everybody syncs their Mondays...
  11. What training did you do today?

    4.5 hours on the trainer between 65 and 75% FTP. Considered jumping in the ocean this afternoon. Didn't.
  12. Tranny kit Ordering

    Have the cycling kit in the cart, I'll wait on the extra bits before placing an order.

    Isn't it based completely on your HR when you start the new activity rather than any history? The recovery check and recover advisor are seperate I thought? I've only ever had a "Fair" when I've back to backed days that probably shouldn't have been but have had to be because of travel / work.
  14. Bitcoin - someone explain it to me

    Missed the top of the peak by about an hour so pretty chuffed. Left half the profit in there to see what happens (currently just losing value fast) and the other half paid for Christmas... I consider myself purely flukey and can claim no more credit for the timing than I could for a win on the pokies.
