  1. The Mental Health thread

    What brand and doses are others using. My partner is trying, as he is driving Uber and shifts are uneven. We have one we picked up from the Chemist.
  2. Free Ironman Entry to a North American Race

    I think we need a whole new post to follow your JOURNEY.......
  3. What training did you do today?

    Just selective posting on my behalf, because most times I look as you describe....lol.
  4. What training did you do today?

    ParkRun.... 21:42min, (season best for me so far); 10th and 1st female. 170 odd, even with floods and road blocked. I was doing four runs sessions per week, but was getting slower. Back up to five sessions for the last two weeks and paying off already.
  5. What training did you do today?

    Esay 3km / 10 min hills (20 sec reps) / 1km easy / 2km fast..... Nothing special but completed in the SMASHING tropical rain, and in the dark. Was SOOOOO much fun At one point it was raining really hard, thinking it can't get heavier, then you could literally hear it turn up even heavier.
  6. What training did you do today?

    Just a lot of sweat and some tears. I think training with faster kids for about 6 weeks (just once a week) has given me the ability to understand what it actually feels like to run at a faster pace....and for me to know that my body won't break when I do. Don't worry, the rest of the 1km were just over the 4min (back to normal).
  7. What training did you do today?

    Mixed sprint session today, but did smash a new 1km pb. On a grassed surface. Previously 3:53. Today..... 😁😁😁😁😁😁
  8. What training did you do today?

    Cranky, am with you. In BNE for work. Went out this morning for a run, with sprints of 30 and 15 sec in blocks....... IT IS FRIGGEN HOT. 😳 This coming from me.......who lives in Cairns. πŸ˜„. Air con in hotel is nice.
  9. Parenting is hard

    Is she competing??????
  10. Gwen running okay. New 5k PB.

    One of the girls coached by my coach, Jill Boltz, has gone over to college racing / uni this year. She ran a 16:49 5km yesterday on 300m track. PB by a fair bit am told. Jill said yesterday that said she had run 3000m on a 170m track in her hay day. Yikes.....you would need to run the opposite way to unwind.
  11. What training did you do today?

    Rocks 5km race 22.08 (4.22, 4.25, 4.25, 4.26, 4.20) Good, First female, third overall, ran the last km faster than all, and actually hurdled over a tree that fell down after we ran out Cons - too slow (really should have been under 22min) fourth km and should have been faster I need first km. Was fairly hot, along shaded paved creek / rainforest Edited. Third not second overall....
  12. Hey guys and girls. Seeking advice re the $20,000 assets grant available to small businesses. We did get tax advise the other day but still unsure. My partner has started Uber driving. Going to eat in to km quickly, so just working out best way to move forward for next two year. Upgrading will need to occur. Given when he started, a month ago, and current car, we can claim roughly $1,000 in depreciation this financial year. I think this 20,000 grant is only available until 30 June this year. We really are just a bit confused as to what this means. Are we better holding the current vehicle, claiming $1000 this year, then buying an upgraded vehicle in early July (so I under the normal depcriation rules I think she said). OR. Using the 20,000 grant this year. Just not sure how this impact future depreciation. New world to us and learning along the way.
  13. What training did you do today?

    2km warm up / 1500m HARD / 2 min rest / 500m HARD / 1km / 10 x 100 (on 1 min) 1500m = 5.58min 500 (or 524m) = 2.03 min - then spent the next min seriously dry retching (good ab work out........)
  14. What training did you do today?

    ParkRun. Managed 21:55 (21:48 on my watch, was slightly longer as the grassed finish area was flooded after it rained all day yesterday) The pace kids turned up and all race, check out the Cairns results, 25 or so under 20 min. Bit disappointed, but was first race for the year. Very humid today after massive rain yesterday. PB is 20:51 from about five months ago. Was sixth female overall and the first β€˜adult’female......does that count. Can you see I am not sure if I am am happy or not...... Did hold 4 min for first km. Back to the mental drawing board.
  15. Test dummies required...

    Do you need another chick to help out being a test dummy, being at the smaller end of the clothing and shoe spectrum and a dedicated runner. if so, let me know and will pm details.
