  1. What training did you do today?

    Completed the whole session at running tonight... 6 x 3 min efforts with 3 min recovery.. plus a warmup jog (8 mins) and cool down. Achilles survived fine :-)
  2. What training did you do today?

    5 1/2 months since tearing my achilles and I am returning to my running group tomorrow. Am slightly anxious about it, but I've been running on the alterg and keeping up with Physio and rehab so, fingers crossed, all goes well. Choosing not to have surgery was definately the right decision for me. As per my original goal, if I can be consistently running 6-8km a few times a week by Xmas I will be pleased.
  3. Uber v Cabbies

    Been using Uber in India for the past few weeks! I travelled for near 3 hours on one occasion and it cost me $13.80!
  4. What training did you do today?

    You're Brave! I grew up in Rosebery... :-)
  5. SO.......???

    The caravan parks have cabins which are well priced, short walk to transition and the to the pub afterwards. Whatever you choose, get in early!
  6. Wireless headphones

    I hate running. I do it to avoid saggy boobs and cellulite! ? If listening to music motivates you to do, well so be it.
  7. What training did you do today?

    My first run today! 6min run, 3 min walk on the AlterG. 5km in 38mins. So happy. The Achilles feels great. :-)

  9. Hermits - do you know any?

    Just downloaded this to read on the plane :-)
  10. Speeding in a hire car USA

    Pulled over for speeding in a hire car in Jamaica! Now that was a scary experience. Had to pay the fine "on the spot" in cash. He told us to get our licences and leave the fine on the drivers seat, which he quickly got in and collected. $40US. We weren't speeding but the Hertz sticker on the car was like a beacon for the dodgy cops. Was pretty frightening at the time.
  11. vancouver, seattle, portland

    I've been to Seattle. I loved it but probably would go at a diff time of year if I went again. Was there end of October and it was freezing.. thermals to block out the wind. Been to Vancouver a few times. My least fav Canadian City. I much preferred Calagary/Banff, Montreal, Quebec. We drove Calagary to Seattle, crossed over the border near Coeur d'Alene..the scenery was spectacular.
  12. What training did you do today?

    2km walk on the AlterG :-) baby steps..
  13. Turning Forty

    I agree with the no kids thing :-) I was lucky enough to get spoilt with a charter flight to Margaret River for the weekend... own pilot and car waiting at the airport for 2 days of wineries. The view was spectacular! Took a pic of the Busso jetty from the air.
  14. The finer things in life.....

    I used to stay in the city after work on a Friday night and have a few drinks.. Drinking in Perth bars isn't cheap... I'd end up catching a cab home, leaving my car overnight, cab to collect it the next day... easily a $200 night out. Nowadays I drive home via Dan Murphys, buy a $50-$60 bottle of French champagne and enjoy it in my pjs in front of the tv!!
  15. Turning Forty

    I thought I was going to have a week long boozefest also.. until I tore my Achilles. Now it's going to be a civil early afternoon cocktail function and most probably bed by 930pm!
