    Injuries how many & the worse.

    I have been racing for about 14 years and have had quiet a few injuries,multiple torn calf, PF, a couple of bike crashes (nothing serious) and general muscle issues. The best thing I can do to prevent all these issues (bar crashing) is Pilates. I find when I regularly go to Pilates I do not have any niggles or injuries (having said that I didn't go last week and cant go this week 😠). As I get older I have also implemented a monthly visit to Chiro to keep me aligned and physio whenever needed to loosen up. Cheers NSF

    Trusty steeds - what do you ride?

    That is nice. I have a Merida Big Nine
  4. Hi Guys, Any ideas how I can stop cats from entering my yard? The issue is there have been 2 separate instances within the last 3 months where a cat has had babies and want to live in my yard. It causes all the dogs in my area to go off every time they move. I don't want to hurt them (I actually like cats), but I am looking for any ideas deterring them, maybe a smell, an object etc. BTW - I have been to council and they cannot help. They will provide a cage for possums though. I believe I could catch the mother easily enough, but that would leave 2 kittens who hide and would be very difficult to catch. For clarity, they are living in a drain in back of yard so I cant just pick them up. They only come out at night, hence the issue with dogs going off. Cheers NSF

    All things IM NZ

    Yep, agree with all above. Great race. On another note, I saw one of the funniest things before the swim start. Whilst everyone was making their way to transition prior to start, I noticed a guy in a tracksuit with a smoke and a bag of McDonalds in his hand. Whilst walking out of transition I see the same guy, wetsuit on with another cigarette in his hand. Talk about pre race nutrition ............... No idea how he went Cheers NSF

    Training Question

    I do something very similar and quiet enjoy it. On another note, getting your head around early starts can be quiet daunting. One coach gave me some great advice regarding this. He said if I really didn't feel like getting out of bed to train, just get up anyway, get dressed (I always had my gear set out ready to go) and take 6 steps out the door. If I still really didn't want to train to go back to bed as at that point I probably needed the mental rest rest more than training anyway. In a 3 month IM build I tested this many times but did not go back to bed once. Good luck with it all. Cheers NSF
