  1. Looks like it's the week for it, 200g gain for me, back to 86.0

    I didn't know that, thanks. 👍
  3. They run in circles anyway, so you only need one.
  4. Perhaps she wrote it when she was being shot at in Bosnia? (I'm not left or right, just found it funny)
  5. I'm sure you wouldn't. She got away from me with her last 50mtrs, I fear it won't be long before the baton gets passed on.

    It's a good game. I missed the earlier match as I was running.

    I've found that mentally or skill wise, I'm not very good at the really steep, saw tooth profiles. Maybe I need to do more of them but I think I'm better pre-disposed to trot along over 80-100kms gradually accumulating 2000 mtrs vert, than I am shorter really hard climbing. I find I get a bit despondent when I'm struggling and don't cope well. Having said that, it's my first year and I am very much still in IM/TT mode where I stress about my time and place in the race. When it gets very tough and there is nobody around, I forget that everyone else is struggling. I'm a work in progress
  8. Yeah they do that at UTMB but I wonder how long it takes? Does Garmin have some super fast chargers or something?
  9. Mate, I have a 'little' experience of this. There is a fine line between having minimal pain killers, so that you are aware mentally with what's going on and needing some help with getting in the right position without being in agony. Sometimes you need a little help. I find the hardest bit is trying to change positions without stressing out. It's like you can be ok lying down or standing up but the most painful/stressful bit is that transition in-between the two. Very often I've been 'frozen' at that point, absolutely petrified to go any further as you know how painful it will be. I wish I had an easy answer. The only thing I found helped was tying things around the house that helped me get up and get down, that way your body is not taking the whole strain and it helps calm down the shaking. On the mental side of things, I've found it very useful to keep track of progress i.e.: Yesterday I could get x far own my own, today is a few meters further,,that kind of thing. I also found things like small step ups and counting them, really good. I remember the first I could take myself to the bathroom in 3mths, it was like I'd won the Olympics. Take the small daily victories where you can get mate and build on that. It really helps with the mental side IME.
  10. Ran 5km to Jnr Parkrun then jogged around with Flipper. She went 12:23, a PB 👍

    I don't know anything about Chieka but an interesting observation for me was the pre match interview with both coaches yesterday. Jones was dressed very smartly, shirt and tie done up and spoke well about the team's preparation. Chieka looked like he'd been a Year 8 excursion and gotten into a fight over lunch money. I was shouting for the Aussies yesterday but to me, when I saw Chieka, the first thought I has was that here's a guy that doesn't care too much. All perception of course but never the less.
  12. I already had an extra monitor at home from my contracting days but I never use tbh. When we get the third bedroom sorted I may put a bit of a workstation in there but we already have one and it's quite 'clunky'. I prefer to sit downstairs and work. I have no idea why.

    Stikman for Pres!

    Is that like when football managers say they are 100% behind their player, just before they put them on the market?
