    Job Seeking Advice

    I also did the same thing... gave up IT and did PT/ Massage for 2 years... was bored and didn’t enjoy having to work odd hours and weekends . I also looked for contracts with immediate starts and made sure I could start ASAP. After the 1st contract, no-one ever questioned my 2 year “career break”...

    Wierd and Wacky Tourist attractions’

    Haha I just choked on my coffee 😂
  5. Been in Tokyo for nearly a week and thought I’d pop in to the Harry Hedgehog Cafe for a look 😂 30 minutes with unlimited pats of 2 assigned hedgehogs! They were sooooo cute. Kind of random .... 😊 Surely others have done other wierd touristy things!

    The cost of cycling on the road...

    I got a formal warning for this when I worked at BHP... walking stairs with a hot drink. I also got one in Townsville for crossing the rd outside the office without using the pedestrian lights 50m up the road!...... Townsville! If wasnt like it was a thriving metropolis!

    https://www.9news.com.au/2018/11/26/03/32/emma-kent-sentenced-for-distracted-driving-causing-death?ocid=Social-9NewsP I got caught checking my phone at the start of the year at traffic lights... fined $800 and 4 demerit points. Was enough of a deterrent for me! Now that Zwift has become so popular, are people using it because it’s convenient, because there are too many ****heads on the roads or other reasons?

    I'm not fit enough (Bullshit)

    ... my first week was planned that way with me to find out a. How my Achilles would hold up and to b. Establish a baseline... I had no idea where my fitness was at. This weeks training isn’t the same volume and it’s included lots of rest.

    I'm not fit enough (Bullshit)

    I have previously been one of these people that needs to “get fit” before I start proper training or join a squad. Having not got into any sort of regular exercise for the past 18 months, I just completed week one of HIM training (coached) and was completely shocked that I got through 12.5 hours of exercise! I also didn’t think I could ride for 2.5 hours (even though it was slow!) Its definitely changed my way of thinking and to have more confidence in myself .

    Bike bib for ya bits

    I wear Assos and can’t find anything comparable. I bought the new bibs on the weekend after seeing them at the Noosa Expo. Being back on my bike the last few weeks, I’ve been wearing a range knicks while I’ve been Zwifting and my girl bits have been sore too! The Assos are the only ones that don’t leave me sore.
