  12. Maybe I should start an Instagram page. Not sure if I would get any followers though. FM
  13. I volunteered and was in the main stadium for the whole games. It was very emotional. A couple of Fantastic memories: 1. Watching North and South KoRea walk in the stadium under one flag. A world historic event. 2. Lost. An Elderly gent got lost on the opening night. He was from the Blue Mountains I waited with him until almost everyone was gone then took him to the police station. They contacted the village he was at ( his career thought he caught the train home and left). I then drove him to Penrith police Station, where a person from the village met him. He was a bit pissed off wit

    Not a record but an attempt by an every day person whilst raising money for charity FM https://www.nbnnews.com.au/2020/09/11/tour-de-cure-gp-takes-on-the-everest-of-cycling-challenges/?fbclid=IwAR1Vwa_lJz0CHIa8drP4iyuSENOjwbN31k15xq4LFE3r5qcpNMXOqrmvFDY
  15. I used to get on the trainer at 3.30-4am then ride until sunrise then switch to the road. Long ride done at 9am. Same as long run - 2 or 3 hours run by 8am. Swimming was before work starting 6am. I remember one Saturday morning running 3 hours, back by 8am, mowed the lawn and everything ready for my daughters 10th birthday party at 11am. I entertained the kids, fed them then cleaned up after. All done by 5pm. Its hard but it can be done. FM PS: I was also doing Uni by correspondence as well. Ah, those were the days...
  16. I had a few Sports but has come down to golf at the moment. I played rugby league for 13 years and represented Canterbury once. I played and coached basketball for over 30 years. This was mainly at a senior level, including coaching and playing for Vanuatu. I played in the Sydney championships and the Metropolitan League, winning a few titles. I didn’t play in the National League but did play against them in state championships. Other than this, I swam competitively for years. i have played sport competitively from 1968 until now, missing only 2009 after a bike accident. Triat

    Don’t forget, channel 7 at 1pm tomorrow (Father’s Day) - tape or watch. A great look at ordinary people doing extraordinary things. FM
  19. I smoked from age 13 and stopped at 21(hypnosis). I did try some funny smelling ciggie once and only once (I threw up after it and killed my mate’s mothers plants). I did once smoke tea bags (desperate times camping at Catherine Hill Bay) however, it tasted shit and made my eyes water. I was told that I had a cigar when I was thirty but I lost four hours of memory from red wine. Never touched since. My wife smoked 30 a day until 2003. She took Zyban tablets to quit. She still has cravings but won’t go back. FM
  20. Who likes riding in peletons ? Where do you like positioning in the peloton - engine room, lounge, the caboose or anywhere ? What benefits and detriments do you see ? How often do you ride in them ? Favourite rides with them ? FM
  21. I come from a swim background and train along the lines of Matty. I only have three breaks in my swim training - all for shoulder stretching and a quick drink (about a minute or two). . I swim long sessions with either paddles, pace/easy laps, drills or just long long laps. Backstroke last to reverse stretch shoulders then a couple pool walks with arm/back shoulder stretches to finish. I’m not necessarily exhausted but the body feels “used” that could take a bath or massage to relieve. interesting, I only do sprints (100s/200s/400s) in the last few weeks prior to racing. FM. Forgot
