  1. It has all been Bored@ working on this one. Good work mate. And thanks must go to Willies family for being understanding and assisting in this in what must still be a very hard time.

  2. Hi Guys, Im not going to go into details, but we have trannies back for a month at this stage. The previous owners family have a lot to deal with, sorting things out. Then to have me asking about a website and transferring ownership etc. On top of their loss & heartache is just another thing I’m sure they didn’t want to deal with. I need to say a big thanks to Tri-Mel or the Ranga as many of u know her. She was my POC with the family. Once the estate is settled and ownership has been transferred over I will put a post out looking for ideas & support to keep the

  3. For those that have missed out, Foz has been up and down for the last month. The good news is he is starting to get better. Mr Flower has been liaising with Di and he seems to be on the mend. Foz is now working hard on physio and the hospital gym. Heading in the right direction. Great news Andrew. FM

  12. After a 19years break, i lined up for my 7th Ironman. The swim was tough for me but got it done in just over an hour. I fell apart on the second lap of the bike coming back into the wind. First time i raced with a power meter, and quite frankly, i wasn't that enthused. Maybe i just don't know how to race using one. The first lap of the run, i was just okay but after battling a knee injury for the past few months, even walking became a challenge. I had popped nearly 6 voltaren tablets by then without much effect, so I called it quits after 18km as my walking even got slower and when the

  13. As the PM I agree he should be able to travel and be afforded special privileges, FFS we let Dani Minogue home quarantine. But posing for selfies out the front of pubs, especially while Vic is in the midst of yet another ****ing lockdown just shows total ignorance of what everyone is going through. He deserves to lose votes over such a stupid move.

  14. Have never been anti-vax. More of a reluctant vaxxer. I get the recommended injections before overseas travel, but have never bothered with the flu vax. Figured I would get the COVID jab eventually, but with Australia being close to COVID free, I wasn't in any hurry. As soon as Melbourne went into Lockdown IV, I got the Astra Zeneka jab that weekend. Second jab is booked for August. I work from home, rarely go out, follow the COVID rules and generally consider myself an extremely low risk of catching COVID. But the recent Lockdown made me realise how important it was for Australia

  17. The first two tubes were ditched in T1 so I couldn’t check em out, and I’m guessing the second tube flatted due to an error on my part as I was changing it. I haven’t checked the third tube yet…but the tyre looks fine - it was practically brand new only a couple 100km on it. I have to say I pulled into the Ellis Beach aid station before the first turnaround at PC and asked if anyone had a pump (by then I could see the rear was flattening)…an Ellis Beach SLSC volunteer took me up to the SLSC shed and fashioned a makeshift valve adaptor onto the air inflator they use for their surf boats.

  26. Yes mate, sorry to say a DNF for me 😢. I had two injuries in the recent prep for this race. At Easter a rear of quad/back of knee injury and more recently some horrible plantar faciatis in my left heel. I though, if anything, one of these two things could end my race but turns out it was something different again. I started well enough, taking it easy, ran with a friend from TTUK but had only met him f2f that morning. We had a pact to both go our own pace and once that didn't match, we would split. (he's a multiple UTMBer). So we had a 90 min window to start but you still get the same

  28. Very slow but done and dusted. Ran into Paul Every who was over from WA for a wedding and thought, why not run the Nosh. A number of ascents between 22% - 30%. Lots of rock climbing and rock sliding. My son and I loved it. A few photos my son took (he had time because he was faster than me). FM

  30. It's not always about the want of it, it's more about the internal enjoyment of it. The 3, 4, 6, 12 months of training is the test - not necessarily the race. The mental investment of training is where the love comes from. Give it a few days, weeks. Look back on where you came from when you entered to what you were just before the gun went off on the day. Be proud of your efforts. Be a hard arse and get your money's worth next time. FM

  31. I 3 flatted on my first half Ironman. I only had 2 tubes. The first flat was a slow leak, so I put the tube back in. For the last 20km I stopped and pumped up the tyre every few km's.

  32. He cranked it up today, and had a bit of a meltdown. 5 hour marathon, and a 12.27 total time...Fastest of the 100 on his final day. Goes to show how he was pacing. What a freaking epic achievement. Slowtwits will be in meltdown trying to talk it down.

  35. @Flanman .... I can't mention that place without giggling. Am I immature? In all seriousness, I would love to come back to Australia to see my ageing Mum. I am 12 months+ overdue, but the prospect of quarantine, $20,000 for a one-way Economy flight, no certainty that I a) wouldn't get bumped en route b) that internal borders wouldn't be closed c) that I could get internal flights etc etc ....... I think I'll wait this out. But good to see ScoMo can get out to join a party he wasn't invited to!!!!

  36. Our family is one of 10’s of 1000’s here in Australia (if not 100’s of 1000’s) directly impacted by significant mental stress in not being able to readily see close family who inconveniently live overseas. The point is he could have done everything remotely but instead chose to rub our faces in it whilst he goes for a bit of a jolly. Have a look at the law - we are banned from leaving (even to a country where we have full residency and voting rights) apart from in very strict circumstances subject to some arbitrary assessment by a faceless civil servant. There is no right of appeal or challeng

  37. Had the Moderna jab 3 weeks ago - 2130 on a Sunday night. Felt nothing. Not a single thing. Rode gravel the next morning and a (reasonably fit) mate knew I was jabbed the day before and said "I am going to put you to the f&^king sword" .... for 70kms. Kept up. Think I got something from the placebo batch. Next jab on Sunday night at 2200!

  39. There's probably nothing wrong with the calf, it's something else that's going on. I went to 3 different physios, they all treated the calf as the problem, needling, stretching, strengthening, rolling etc but I would continually tear them. The 4th, and highly recommended physio, one I went to diagnosed the issue within 5 minutes - tight hip flexor. That may not be your issue, but you need to find a physio that is going to look at the big picture and not one with tunnel vision. Also you may need to change the way you run. You may not be engaging your glutes when you run. Weak glute muscles m

  40. Up. Its always, come back in 2 days and do these exercises. never works. Its all about high rotation of people and putting a machine on and walking away to work on others n if you pay for 45 mins, you stay for 45 mins masseurs, dentists, acupuncturists, podiatrist all manage to stay and work on you yet Physio’s are all about number of clients and its why They never can fix you as fast as others. They leave you alone and tell you to do exercises.

  41. You’re in a no-win position irrespective of how good your questions might be. Most people believe (rightly or wrongly) it came out of that lab. Tbh, it really makes no difference - no one is going to admit something, no one is going to pay compensation, and I don’t get the right vs left stuff. Pollies of all sides are in it for their own self preservation and Trump played that game to its extreme. What I do want is Australia to actually have a plan as to how to come out of this sometime before 2030.

  42. We had our first A-Z two weeks ago at 2.30pm. I woke up at midnight with chills, aches & pains, headache. Felt crap till about 4pm. My wife had similar but much milder. On Sunday I swam my fastest swim set in about 8mths, took 15secs off my 400m time and held all my 100s at fast times. Have told our daughter at the AOC to get the team on the A-Z train ASAP as it is performance enhancing.

  48. Forums back! How did everyone go? I had a great swim, felt really good in the last km and came out of the water ready to rock, to a flat tyre in T1…the same tyre that was fine that morning and all weeks prior. Changed the tube, that went flat straight away. Changed to my second - and final tube - and took off some 20 odd minutes behind the middle of the IM pack. 50kms into the ride, that same tyre flatted too. What luck! Haven’t had a flat tyre in I can’t remember how long, but I get three in one day, on the one day you don’t want one. SAG wagon took me home. That southerly on the bi
