Recommended Posts

Another race another victory... what's her secret?  New coach and training methods? Aged up so racing "older" ladies?  Jiffy bags from runwith.com?

Can I claim im coaching her? Ok, ok I just give out her running stuff every now and then. I wouldn't call it coaching.

Its a bit like some coaches in Victoria claiming people as venue based athletes. Just because they spoke to them once in the street.

I've had a goody bag from Willie, and been "called out" .

I came second last in my AG at my race today. 

Can we take wins and notsowins?

Definitely ducking her.

AA7 will say it's her foot/ankle/something, but we all know it's her ticker.

Worked on my triceps at the gym 😉 

But yeh, certainly missed it. But also probably good to have an enforced rest. I've done lots of racing this year.

Don't tell Cranky, but one of her girls came up to me this morning and said 'beat her', referring to her mum 😂

Crankys just hit a good balance between being a mum and wife, teacher and top age group athlete. It's good that a few people on here have helped her out.

What some of you probably have not seen us Crankys positive influence on people around her. Two of her girls have started in the kiddies tri's and doing well. One of Crankys colleagues has followed Crankys example and started at Park tun several months ago and lately some tri's. That lady has completed each triathlon she's started and had a few podiums in her age group. BTW she has dropped about 15 or so kgs in weight along the way. 

The scoop is Mr Cranky has got a bike and is doing some training as well. So well done Cranky, enjoy your break over Christmas and look out QTS competitors in the new year.

AA7 won't have a hope next year after Cranky has 6 weeks training full-time.

Thanks, GM. Very kind words. A few parents from my school tri team are planning on doing some tris next year too. That'll be very cool! Yes, I'm very excited about Dazz  riding, running AND swimming up to 5 sessions a week!! Short ones,  but who cares! It's awesome. It helps that his mate at work has just taken up tri in the last 6 months too.

As if.  We all know she's a much better runner than me. I don't pretend for one minute that I would've win these races if she wasn't injured. And I include it in every conversation, when people congratulate me. I don't like pretenders. 

 

Thanks for the thread PM. And yes. I have just aged up, so that's got to help!!!

I'll have to come up your way again so we can all race each other again. 

Not sure how my ego would handle it though - I'm currently unbeaten 😂

I don't think smash is the correct word at all. You keep me on my toes.
