  1. Racing well, but having some other achievements along the way (eg this week I picked this up (M. EdSt))

  2. I know YOU do. But the English don't give two flying ducks and the lack of reporting on what it will do to the "truce" is appalling...

  3. "My Potential" is a pretty abstract idea. How do I work it out? Do I say, "My potential for IM racing was 8:xx"? If that's the case, then I never reached it. On the other hand do I say "My potential for IM racing whilst working 45 - 50 hours a week building a career, studying, plus doing additional part time work, was 9:30"? If that's the case, then I exceeded it. A lot of people see "potential" as the best you could do if you forgot about everything else. If you are going to be world class, then that's an option for you, but for the other 99.5% of us, is it really worth trying to ac

  4. Except the opposite could be said for Scotland. The election confirms Scotland's desire to stay in EU

  5. "For All Mankind" is another on Apple I have binge watched and now fated to the Friday episode release drip feed along with the Morning Wars/Morning show. For All Mankind is an alternate reality where the Soviets beat the USA to the moon and hence the space race, the arms race (and all the other races) don't stop, they escalate. Based around NASA and the Apollo astronauts it is initially pretty cool as popular historical figures get their histories re-written and events - Teddy Kennedy cancels his party on Chappaquiddick Island, never loses his cred and goes on to become president, for

  6. The New York Times has published an article that shows that the Nike 4% do you give you an advantage. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/12/13/upshot/nike-vaporfly-next-percent-shoe-estimates.html?action=click&module=Editors Picks&pgtype=Homepage I am waiting for the Nike Vaporly 50% to become available before I buy a pair 😋.

  7. For me endurance sport is an escape and freedom. To reach my full potential it would have had to become the focus, the opposite to the why. Perhaps also I grew up where you job paid the way, therefore that was a key focus and sport/hobbies were something extra. Have I reached my potential probably not, but happy

  8. Yeah sorry Baz, but that sounds like projection to me The Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are far more interested in talking about Trump the person that Trump the President, because Trump the President is actually doing a pretty decent job Nancy Pelosi admitted as much yesterday - if you can't beat him, impeach him...

  9. Oh, for the days when that was one of the bigger loads of presidential horse shit.

  10. it does and this is where him going ahead with Brexit without giving Scotland a choice at the same time, means he is not considering the views and needs of Scotland. He should offer a Scotland Ind referendum

  12. For me it is not about achieving my full potential. It is about about being the best triathlete that I can be given my current work/family/friends situation. This year I maximised my training opportunities and lost ~5kg. Given my current work circumstances I feel that I reached my potential for Kona. If I trained full time I am sure that I could take 3+ hours off my Ironman time. However I have to work, I have a family and friends so I feel that I have achieved my potential with a 14 hour IM.

  13. I don't think I ever came close to my potential as a young sportsman. I haven't done so as an older sports participant either, and I'm a long way off now. I can still imagine it though. But, realistically, I'm too much of a drifter type to get close. I tend to have the dream, but not the believe, achieve

  15. Something I’ve often thought about myself, but not in a sporting theme, I don’t think I’ve ever reached my potential or gotten near it in my life regarding school, work, relationships and I haven’t figured out how or what I need to do to reach it. in a sport sense I have not been active long enough to reach potential, but from the results I do have, I can guarantee that I have not gotten near my potential. Self sabotage is one thing I’d have to conquer to unlock one of the pages to reach potential

  17. That is a ballot to which the Conservatives are strongly opposed. So, a constitutional clash between the Scottish and UK governments seems likely. So its ok for the UK to leave the EU but its not okay for us to leave his putrid mess. I'm committed to this, bring on indepenence
