The good news thread

Recommended Posts

Managed my first road ride today since the op. 2hrs easy rolling ride and one climb ( Cheddar Gorge). Power was down, leg felt 'ok' , back hurt but that's to be expected. Weather was terrible but I still enjoyed it :)

2 hours. That's a long stint post an op. Good luck ;)

2.5 hrs today, up the Gorge and left to Blagdon and climb out of Burrington Coombe. That last bit doesn't tickle, as TC :). LoL

 

Anyway, feeling good just to be out there. Very cold ride today but lovely and sunny and crisp. Great to be alive :)

Well done Team Downesy. Sportsperson Of The Year Awards shouldn't only be about the one's who are just genetically gifted, they should also be for those who put the work in. From what I've heard this award was well and truly deserved :thumbsup:.

Are you saying I'm not genetically gifted? :P

 

 

 

Thanks mate. It was an unexpected honour but one I was happy to accept.

My good news is that this morning I did a SIX km ocean swim. 10 swimmers, regrouping at key landmarks. Unsupported. A bit over 2 hours all up. My previous longest was 3.5km. I'm stoked.

Being casual Friday today, and stinking hot/humid, I decided to wear shorts. This means the brown belt to go with the deck shoes, rather than the black belt with the black shoes I normally wear. I haven't worn it for about a month. I put it on after swimming this morning and found I need a new hole in it about an inch shorter than the shortest, just to take the slack out of it.

 

 

I'M HAPPY!!! :clap::clap::clap:

 

 

Edit to add: And now off to the blood bank to get rid of another half a kilogram. :)

well done ex that's seriously quality.

 

I'm about to drop a half a kilo too, but that is only because it's 3pm work break dump time. blood donation certainly seems more compassionate. I need to get on board too, maybe not just right now though...

After about 3 years of the missus in pain from her back, back operations , nerve problems , leg and knee problems , she is pain free this week. The last treatment on Monday , a quartezone shot (?sp) had the leg working. She has started pool exercises and mild stretching this week.

 

She had problems in Husky last week walking the stairs to our unit. No more now.

 

We are so lucky when we do not have pain.

Only if she gets one too was her reply.

 

I do like her style though. This morning she wondered out loud if instead of wedding gifts we could just have a slush fund to go towards new bikes.

I suppose her Dad owns a brewery too.

 

Damned lucky bastard.

Well, funny you should say that. He doesn't own a brewery exactly but he does makes some absolutely top-notch wines.

I love that my kids think that exercising is just a normal part of life. This was a game that they were playing this morning at Nana's; after doing rebounder/sprint repeats. ...

First one is okay. Second one, speaking as this household's resident foot massager, is child abuse.

Well it's been four months since the tornado and finally there is a fence up which means the builders might start soon.

OK Mrs T got her arse handed to her in Bathurst, but only been back on the bike for 6mths and it has just made her more determined. This was the best she looked/felt all day :lol:
