  1. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/fatal-shark-attack-at-tathra-still-a-focus-for-annual-wharf-to-waves-ocean-swim-20150107-12jg9i.html Linda was the smartest and most pragmatic kid in our class at age 14, and still is by the looks.
  2. Pedals: clipless vs flats

    This is what I use. Not sure how they are defined. Old tri shoes.
  3. Bullying in the Workplace

    If so it worked. She got a new job with their main competitor a few weeks ago, in a role where she really wanted her career to go.
  4. What training did you do today?

    Bored with my swims, so looked up '1500m swim sets' on da interweb. Found one which involves 300m repeats as 100m full tilt, 100m hang on as best you can, 100m easy, 45 secs rest between each 300. Hurts a bit, but a nice change, and interesting can do the fast 100s near my limit (1:32-1:35), but recover OK during the next 200. Mixed them up as P&B, P & no swim devices. Keeps the telomeres long
  5. Malcolm Young - RIP

    Some great old pics of the band in here:
  6. Malcolm Young - RIP

    Best Oz Band ever, and all engineered by an unassuming Malcolm. Here's an AC/DC song I never even knew existed!
  7. New format, do tri bike leg on water

    This looks like fun. Can use the motor, or just power it with your legs. No need to deal with cars on the bike leg. And no bark off when you crash! (1:08)
  8. How important is the destination in doing a race for you

    If you can't meet the 'family holiday destination criteria', the 'novelty' could be to make it hard, with an element of risk, and not sanitised? The Paris-Dakar equivalent? 'The Redneck Wonderland Triathlon'.
  9. What do you do to get away from Triathlon?

    Was thinking similar. He's wondering 'what sort of evil can I do with that bit of gear.....once I'm done with this peanut butter sarny'
  10. How important is the destination in doing a race for you

    Lol - just don't tell everyone, or it will no longer be fun and cruisy out here.
  11. How much sleep do you get?

    Better quality sleep now I have a CPAP machine. Dentist picked up I might have sleep apnea a year or so ago, hired me a sleep test machine and sure enough I did have it moderate-severe (21 incidents of stopping breathing for more than 10secs per hour). The CPAP has brought than down to under 1 incident. Takes a bit of getting used to though, some people just can't hack them. I thought only big unhealthy fat basts got sleep apnea, but apparently not, the dental work I had done in the 70s & 80s (wisdom teeth etc removal) caused mine he said.
  12. Sharks vs Broncos

    "She noted Robinson felt competition to have well-dressed children, a new car and "keep up with others in social activities" and was not driven by narcissistic tendencies, rather "a dependency on the approval of others". Pretty standard issue these days. It's also what sends quite a few farmers to the wall
  13. Is there a decent beach or lake for a long swim

    I'm sort of a bit lost now. Are you saying it needs to be on the coast somewhere? And that the roads need to be smooth & safe & minimal traffic? Could it be an offroad Tri?
  14. What would you do?

    Me too....though the South Island would be even better. I sometimes browse the job ads for Queenstown - though my semi-retirement job plan is being developed here, so probably just dreamin. One of my mates started an electricians apprenticeship at about age 49-50, he's now 54 & works for himself.
  15. What do you do to get away from Triathlon?

    Damn they are good paintings Softy. Been thinking about airbrushing a dryfly pic on the tailgate of my old Hilux, but need to sort out a design & practice first.
