    Yeah, it's really carking it here in Queensland.  This season: 4 Bribie Races; 7 QTS races; 2 kingscliff races; 2 IM branded events - Noosa & Moo;  Harvey Bay 100; HOTW, Tweed Enduro, Moo half (IM); 2 events in Townsville and Magnetic Island; a couple of smaller events around Cairns.  Double tri at Rainbow Beach, Gold Coast Sprint; Morton Bay Tri.  I might have missed a few.  Yep, definitely a dying sport....

    That seems like a lot of races

    Hey all. Gunna try and keep up my open water swimming through winter. 

    Unfortunately in my current shape my old suits don’t fit real well. Gunna work on that but in the mean time was wondering if anyone had a suit that would fit someone about 177cm and (sadly) about 90kgs. 

    Doesnt need to be too flash, cheap and cheerful would be good till I can get back into my good suit. 

    Cheers all. 

     

    Check out Wing Wetsuits, Im pretty sure theyre not far from  you

    26km test run. 2hrs44. Hip started playing up at 20km,it seems much worse running downhill.  Going to back right off now for two weeks, plenty of strength/core stuff at the gym.

    I might be able to salvage my race but it’s hard to imagine my sub 13hr goal being possible now.  :(

    FP you could have a new goal eg finish in good shape, enjoy the day etc etc  ...

    It’s been very frustrating Surfer. Ran an easy 10km @5.30 pace on Tues, no issue. Did a 30min turbo Wed no issue. Then went to run 10km Thurs and had to pull the pin at 7.5km as that hip pain I had way earlier in the year came back. It wasn’t excruciating but I’m backing out at the first sign of anything right now.

    Ive had some different steroid tabs prescribed for my allergy and that has helped heaps. Still a bit run down though.

    I’m in Somt again, plan today was to do a last big run followed by a shorter one tomorrow. I’ve changed my mind now. I think my only option is to to a little and often with a 25km thrown in sometime in the next two weeks. It’s not like I will get any fitter in that time.

    Not ideal but IMO it’s my only chance of salvaging a start in two weeks time. Decided to completely rest today.

    Plan B seems like a good option, you gotta take care & be flexible which is what youre doing. Glad to hear the treatment for your allergies is kicking in

    Interesting. I've had exactly what you've described with my Cannibal knicks, and have been wondering the same thing about stitching them up.

    Maybe theyre a faulty batch of knicks if its exactly the same. Can you contact Cannibal for a replacement?

    Hmm, should have listened to my body more closely yesterday.   Ran/walked mixed trail today but just couldn't get my breathing under control, kept running out of gas and then started to get bad hip pain.  Had to walk the last flat 4km home and walked loads more than that all up.  25km in 3hrs, eek! I suppose it counts as 'time on feet'.

    I think this allergy thing has hit me much more than I realised. :(

     

     

    Hows your week been? Feeling any better?

    I got hit by a car yesterday. Was very blessed to more or less ride away.

    Car randomy and sharply swung into the cycling lane, to get a car spot i think. There was no road intersection coming up so didn't expect it would happen there. Cleaned me up very nicely straight into the passenger door, I had no chance.

    Be careful out there, and always assume everyone can't see you and is capable of whatever!

    Brunswick Rd in Melbourne for the locals.

    Crap news. Hope youre ok & of course .... your bike too

    I'm confused, he consulted his Dad who sid he'd go to hell if he took down his post. Put his fate in God's hands as he will provide, now he's putting his fate in a Barristers hands to sue? Did God tell him to sue or turn the other cheek?

     

    He shouldve listened when god said " I didnt say that., you should take that post down"

    I've had a good long think about this.

    I have a number of things lined up including:- travel already booked (overseas and onshore); just joined the golf club; coaching rep basketball again, requested to be on the local committee in our area, back to playing music and learning more languages, grandson plus a bit more training including gym classes (free for me). I will still be doing a few triathlons.  The new fishing boat will be here in six months. I plan to do some studies plus will still be involved in Tour de Cure. Oh, also, a bit more time with the missus and the occasional sleep in (I haven't done that for ages). 

    Now that's the first week.

    FM

    Exciting times ahead - congratulations 😊

    On your second week of retirement maybe you can set up the Trannie Catch Up Pages & organise a catch up in each state plus an annual shin dig in a new location each year?

    Feeling pretty shit right now. Had to tell a guy who I've been working with for 21 years that he won't have a job at the end of the month. And he's been a contractor for the past 6 years, so there won't be a golden handshake at the end of it. I get home, and my daughter had to have the same conversation with one of her staff.

     

    Sorry to hear ExH, for both you & your daughter - that wouldve been a hard thing to do.

    Would it be better to walk until youre well enough to run? 

    Edit to add - this is a genuine question, not being a smart Alec
