  2. I drink too much Rum flavoured Coke. Even though its about 110% sugar, I'm sure in aids memory loss, improves my personality and makes me look more attractive.😁

  4. Everyone has one event where they live that you could stake your reputation on. Name it and a link if possible. For example in Sydney, one of the best events I thought was the Great NOSH footrace. https://thegreatnoshfootrace.com.au/ Where I live now, Id say The Two Bays trail run 28km. http://www.twobaystrailrun.com/ Don't name an ironman or a half ironman. We all know about them.

  5. 91km Mt Dandenong commute, 1326m altitude. My 17th Mt Dandenong climb this year. Lots of animals crossing in front of me lately. 3 deer yesterday, a lyrebird today and 2 alpacas last week. My front wheel tapped a rabbit as well last week. Starting to get wary on the first part of the descent now.

  12. For the other place that I live.😀 The most amazing Ultra race I have completed has to be the Sunrise to Sunset race in Mongolia. https://ms2s.dk/ I had hoped to do the Mongol 100 this year, but it was cancelled this year due to Covid. 100 mile race on a frozen lake. https://mongol100.com/ https://youtu.be/kuHpE_VorSk

  13. Yeah I really don't know what to expect, except that it goes up Arthur's Seat. The ground will be hard because it's summer, but I don't know if it will be covered in gravel. I am also not sure if it is narrow and twisty or more open. I am going to be on road shoes so i will just go in open to whatever happens.

  15. This, all day and twice on Sundays. Walking fast is hard and you will get passed by wizened older trail 'walkers' that you dismissed at the start! Come over to the Trail thread, it's a like a cuppa joe and a Montana sunrise.😎

  16. Plenty on the trail thread 😄 basically forget any concept of speed because it will only depress you. Train on hills, lots of hills. And be prepared to face plant a number of times. Great fun and typically way friendlier and lower key than the road running crowd.

  20. How personalised do people think this needs to be. Sure getting some one elses name is lazy, but how individualised do you think it is or needs to be? Do you really think all those swim sets and run intervals are tailored just for you. TP and or a good coach talking to you manages the load, performance stress, life and adjusts in discussions with you. A coach can do that face to face on skype or using email. Which works best depends on the coach and athlete. On line with communications it's really good to have data as a coach can see what is happening and talk about it with

  21. I think focusing on the data too much can narrow the attention of the athlete to a point where they no longer feel the experience, of Ironman being a three month experience instead of a one day experience Having a good day or a day you'd dread to repeat, all rides on how you handle it psychologically The psychological preparation for a fantastic experience on race day, when everything went your way, starts three months out - the written feedback you send your coach and the responses to his answers, shows if you're on track An experienced coach will be able to read your respon

  24. Amazing result from someone his age, but given he is currently what, about 74, I also doubt he will be racing in 20 years time too, but not just because he is smashing himself.

  25. More and more changes to ADHD meds appear to be happening, with regards to their prescription in Australia. My non-stimulant meds have been getting progressively cheaper and cheaper, down to about $70/month (still a lot when I should be able to get them for $6.60). But they're slowly removing the diagnosis age requirements for some of the meds. Vyanse which is a long acting dexamphetimine medication has it's age 6 to 18 diagnosis age criteria removed from tomorrow, which means those diagnosed as adults can now get it cheaper. Might be time to talk to my shrink about trialling some new meds
