  1. Suggest we should add in here, as a big help, the ‘cluster’. Emfield theory that your longevity and potential personal success (an arbitrary thing), is very much influenced by being part of a cluster. Reckon the shire mob are proof of this, amongst others.
  2. So, from those who have built similar weeks, what did the week look like to get ~ the totals? Just curious what the structure of the week would be.

    Stars of yesteryear.

    Not so TGE to someone anymore. People’s champ wouldn’t end up in the street.
  4. I don’t really have a dog in this fight and we all have been dicks at some time on here by why, o why, do you have to continue to be the biggest dick? Compensating?
  5. In my limited time with the varia, I have only ridden once for 4 hours and it stayed true. Have had 2 radar drop outs on the 520 at 3 hours but the 935 was still picking it up. Seems to draw more power out of the 520 than previously so the take away for me so far is to have everything charged fully for each ride. If it runs out at 4 hours +, I’ll still take having rear radar for that time as opposed to not having it at all. if you ride on only busy roads it will annoy the shite out of you but still way better ‘seeing’ them well before you ever did without it. so, whatever limitations for over 4 hours or on busy roads, still buy it, game changer for me.
  6. A Xmas treat for myself that I will never leave home without, absolutely the best bit of road bike kit I have ever bought too. Get one.
  7. Just playing catch up on a lot of threads and have to make the comment that if he won, then you are a very close second given how far up his clacker you are.
  8. Burton cleaned me up. Took pain away during sport and gave it to me after. Told me I should slow down. Red flag to a bull that was. 20 years and a drinking legal age of IM’s later, I sort of disagree. So not knocking his knife skills more his bedside manner.
  9. Being in hospo with vegan options, there has been a clear uptrend in uptake of those options. Reckon there would be even more uptake of those products if they weren’t labeled vegan on the menu. Still scares some punters off but times are a changing. (what I mean is that taste should dictate not a label)

    Bucket list races

    Beating Cav’s bike time and Mo’s run apparently, say what.
  11. Was going to mention the tunnel. Cresting the little hill at Forster and seeing the finish line knowing you are turning right rather than going straight ahead. MFD at Port.
  12. The question is, did arpit run under 40?
  13. I’m sure the white knight, aka cameltoe, would have alerted him to this. If the besmircher thought that Jabbs and Mick went hard, wait until the full force of the ‘fuga gets into gear.
  14. Love your stuff Mick but I’m pretty sure you liked the post. Always easier in hindsight isn’t it.
  15. Funniest thing ever said on here.
  16. For those south of the mid north coast in NSW today, the haze is proof that where there is smoke, there is fire.
  17. Had to manage an employee who ended up with bilateral knee ops care of shutting the gate at home after he reversed the car out to come to work. Pre-existing condition...never! What shits me at the moment is the pharmacy issued ‘sick’ certificate. Have to accept it. Money for jam for the pharmacists. Cough cough i’m sick, no probs $30 mate and I’ll give you something the employer has to accept. Rort.

    Time management

    Digressing here a bit but work before family, surely not, fozzy bare. Went for an interview as a young bloke and the dude told me his theory was that family came a close second to work. Knew then I didn’t want the job despite him chasing me hard. Also told myself that anybody that worked for me in the future would know that their family is first and work is second. Many moons and employees later, that idiom still remains true and reckon I have had better staff as a result. my only tips for the OP, and repeating much of the same above, train while they sleep and incorporate family into training where possible.
  19. Olympic distance didn’t start at the Olympics. Not sure any world champs runs the same lines as what they did in San Diego back in ‘74. I won’t call it Kona as we know the first couple were on Oahu but ironman started there and it’s distances remain unchanged (well maybe on some courses 😎). In my eyes, that makes it the holy grail over and above any other triathlon. Plus it is what I watched on TV all those years ago, Sunday arvo, wild world of sports, a bit each week, Dave and Mark et al. Years before St George, F1 etc.
  20. Happy to say it, just personal opinion and has no bearing on others personal opinion as I can completely understand how everyone has arrived at theirs but for me, kona was/is the holy grail.
  21. Nothing worse than a poor winner. Here’s a guy who both sides of politics honoured this week in his passing, recognising without party lines, his achievements and ability to bring all aussies together and you go and get childish after your team has won. How old are you? time and place dude, clearly not your strong suite.
  22. Had a brief and private chat last couple of weeks with someone who has occupied one of the top 3 federal pollie jobs. My last question was off the record so that’s why I am being a bit cagey here. Asked if Barnaby was a nutter. Certified was the answer.

Electrician needed to get under the house and they came out a couple days back as they were in his way, slack me just hasn’t put them back. Another story with those things but that is for another time. advice taken about singles and keeping it ridgy-didge. appreciate the thoughts.
