    I thought for sure that Caleb was going to be a DNF today. When they showed him off the back of the peloton with his head down, I thought he was a done thing. Clearly not. Absolutely monstered that sprint.
  2. Wow. What a read.
  3. That's because you finish so quickly that there's nobody to hang around and chat with.
  4. Haha. My wife and I did our 100th together. I'm now on 156 and she's on 109. Bloody twins!
  5. Mansfield is my local now that Minnippi is just a little bit too crowded to take the double pram. I'm currently around the 28:00 with the pram and my goal is to get down to sub 25:00. Yell out if you see us there.
  6. Pretty proud of the Mrs. Zoe cranked out a 33:47 at Mansfield this morning which is just over 4 minutes quicker than her first ParkRun back on Christmas Day. Her body seems to be holding up quite well and she's looking forward to pushing on. Me? I just missed my pram PB by 2sec at 28:09. As much as I enjoy running with them, and also seeing my wife take chunks out of her previous weeks' times, I am curious to know how I'd go without the pram now that I'm essentially doing 5km of sled work each week
  7. Bob Duallie Pro made by Britax. Managed to get one pretty much brand new (less than 2 months old and still with packaging foam on the frame) on Gumtree for $550. https://www.britax.com.au/bob-gear/bob-revolution-duallie-pro/
  8. It was a huge deal. We went back to Capalaba on NYD and she managed to shave another 2 minutes as well. It's amazing what a little bit of confidence and also knowing that you're not going to completely fall apart will do. Sitting in the mid 36s now, which is about 11 minutes from her PB. I have no doubt that she'll get back there again. Unfortunately I flew solo yesterday after the girls were awake at 4am but she's looking forward to next week.
  9. Sorry. Completely forgot to check this thread. The pram is phenomenal. There's a reason that they sell so quickly off FB marketplace and Gumtree. The 'cabin' is on suspension so it absorbs minor bumps, the tyres are inflatable so you can adjust them to suit the surface that you're running on, the handle is height adjustable so you can set it to a comfortable height and the drum brakes mean that you don't have to worry about travelling downhill. Just ride the brake lever so it's moving at the right speed and run behind it. It feels very light for the weight of it and it's incredibly manoeuvrable. It is a bit of a behemoth though and won't fit through our doorways with the doors on the hinges and we have to take the wheels off to fit it in my wife's old i30, although it fits in her new Tucson without dramas. I'd also grab the little caddy thing that sits between the bars so you have somewhere to store a drink bottle. My father in law got me one for Christmas and it's awesome having water on hand and a zip pocket to put your phone/wallet/keys/token. We've spent a lot of money on stuff for the twins, but this pram is right up there on the list of awesome.
  10. Off-topic, but I'm the motorsport category manager at Brakes Direct in Brisbane so if you need anything for either car on the braking front, let me know and I'll help you out.

    No commutes, yoga or gym sessions. All are either training sessions or at the very least active recovery (eg 30 minutes at 100W)

    Had a decent year going until the twins arrived. Training volume declined heaps until the Sunshine Coast race and then turned into casual rides and ParkRuns after that.
  13. We rolled out to Capalaba for our first Christmas Day ParkRun as a family of 4. Bit of a mess through the right sections with the double pram but we got it done. Mum abandoned us about 1km in to do her first 5km run in about 12 months at her own pace. She manages to beat her first ever ParkRun time which she was happy with given the lack of training, sleep and having grown 2 kids.
  14. I went on the Friday night which was the team pursuit and the team sprinting. Genuinely love the track cycling. Couldn't get tickets for the Saturday as it was sold out and had other stuff on the Sunday that meant I had it on the TV instead. That crash was one of many over the weekend including Nettie Edmondson who was stretchered away after someone swung up unexpectedly and took out her front wheel. Hopefully she's not seriously injured as she's a key member of the women's team in the team pursuit, madison and omnium events. Edit: just read that Nettie suffered a broken collarbone.

    I ride a medium frame on the Shiv. I tried a large frame and it was just a little toooo stretched out for the cockpit. If I push forward into the position that I'm in for the front-on shot, my shoulders sit over my elbows at almost a 90° angle, which I feel very comfortable in.
