  1. Little George Leo was born this morning by C-Section. Weighed 3.49Kg and HR of 155, but sleeping like a baby (what would you expect, Rimmer?) and drinking like there's no tomorrow. Mum a trooper, Dad in love with his Mini-me. Will post photos when I have slept.

  5. Thanks Katz, we’ll have a break for a while before looking for another one as they aren’t that common and only a few breeders.

  7. That's really sad. I used to have one that I was particularly fond of and was one of my favourites. Poor little dude had some trauma injuries which resulted in a badly kinked spine but he had the most relaxed temperament. I've never owned a Jack Russell though.

  8. Don't do the the Hong Kong / New York option then. It fkd me over with jet lag & feeling like shit for the first two weeks we were away. We suffered the worst jet lag ever & I'm confident it screwed me on race day. We have flown to the USA 9 times & it was the worse jet lag we have ever experienced. I would recommend flying direct to San Francisco or LA & spending a few days there. Then head across to NYC. We have flown United, Virgin, Qantas, Cathay & Air New Zealand to the USA. Also look at what plane is being operated Qantas are still using a couple o

  9. Early dip in the dam. Glorious morning, and even better that it was just me and the birds. Not even anybody out walking/running/riding around the dam. And no bitey critters in the water either. I did 1km, a bit faster than I have recently (still slow though), and not a single twinge in the shoulder. I have to keep reminding myself to take it slowly slowly. Maybe 1.2km midweek, and no faster.

  15. I haven’t looked at mine all week and felt like total rubbish on today’s ride. -38 when I got home. About to do a Halloween fun run. Clearly I’ll be making up numbers.

  16. Urgh......the body is clearly tired. After getting Zwift to FINALLY work, I only managed an hour and a half before I was beat. I decided to take a bit of a break and get a few things done then go back to it. My legs were immediately complaining so I pulled hte pin on anything further and am now calling the rest of the day a day of rest.

  19. Will that be getting ready for Kona? It's what I miss most about not being able to ride or run. It's those early morning runs through the forest, lunch-time runs in the middle of Summer along the river, or those rides where you see the sun come up from on top of a mountain 60km from home, and you know you are still heading out for another 30. Geez I miss them.

  21. I agree, provided of course that he has a satisfactory amount of training or racing under his belt. It doesn't have to be a lot of miles. If someone has (or can) run a half marathon, can swim a km relatively comfortably and ride a bike without falling off, they're going to get through an ODT tomorrow without much difficulty. Triathlon has been marketed for many years with enticers and sprints but in the early days we all used to start with the distances similar to ODT because that's all there was if you didn't want to go long. The shorter distances are definitely good for attrac

  26. Hey Trannies. Just saw this post. Let's get down to the nitty gritty... Cam is not my coach anymore. I left him 4 weeks prior to Kona. No need to go into much detail about this, but I walked away from him as I saw his interest in coaching (and in the sport in general) decline over the few months prior. It was affecting my motivation and I needed a quick break before Kona so I could actually get myself to the startline with a level of stability and self-belief. Next up. I have been dealing with on-off itb bursa inflammation since Ironman Frankfurt in early July. I think this came abo

  31. I know Ironman get a lot of shit but this is a really good idea. For IM Maryland they ran a “buddy” program, matching first timers with multiple IM finishers to help answer any questions & support them before the race. Its a great idea. I helped a guy from Brooklyn. We spoke via email & Strava for a month or so before the race. We then went out for pizza & beers before the race (I had Pepsi) It’s a great way to meet new people especially when traveling to races overseas. It also frees up volunteers and race organizers to concentrate on running the race before the

  34. Apologies to bring a downer to the thread but we unfortunately had to say farewell to our best walking buddy Sophie, a German Pinscher, 2 weeks ago at the age of 15yo. First time in 38years without a dog and it’s very strange.

  35. I have guys who have been in the same office for 40 years and have gone to school together. Some have dated each others partners before marrying. Gets a bit creepy.

  36. My grandad recently moved into aged care, around two months ago. We did a dash to Melb to see him at the time when he just moved in. He slowly started eating, socialising etc. Over the past few weeks he has been experiencing increasing periods of paranoia. Baracading his room, yelling at staff, lying on the floor hiding. This week, he was saying people were tying to poison him with acid and the government was out to get him. Ringing everyone mltiple times and at all hours. Today, my mum rings, he was escorted by police to hospital after assaulting two staff. He had a small growth in
