  1. 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

  2. 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

  7. 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.

  9. 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

  20. 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

  23. The countries that are banned are on the 'red list' in the UK, so we've probably pissed off China. They've had to rename the variants. India had no problem with the Kent/UK variant, the South African or the Brazilian variant being named as such but kicked up merry hell when it came to calling out the Indian variant. So now they're called Oscar, Tango, Juliet Bravo, Omega, Gamma or something. 😄

  24. @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!!!!

  25. 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

  26. 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!

  29. Vaccination is the path out of is, its really the only path way. The USA and UK have done it, so sitting back risks us becoming an incredibly isolated nation with all the benefits/disbenefits. What is the reason for being anti vax?

  30. 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

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  35. On Friday I reached 14 days post second vaccination (Sinopharm). This means that I can travel and enter "restricted" locations like hotels, gyms, bars, night clubs, some restaurants etc. To enter I have to show my QR code which they scan. There is still a lot of Covid in Ulaanbaatar. While I would like to go the gym I am avoiding any risky locations. I am in my hotel room waiting for a PCR test. If I pass I will be able to fly to Australia on Monday.

  36. 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.

But I think my ever present inner child will take control and I'll just end up having a shit tonne of fun. I'll try to get a few pics and put a event report up somewhere 👍😎

  40. In March last year the British government stressed Covid-19 was a “very mild illness for the vast majority of people”, based on the information available from Italy. have a read of this if you are brainwashed and believe you’ll die or get very sick if you catch Covid. https://archive.is/2021.06.09-210155/https://amp.theaustralian.com.au/commentary/covid19-when-governments-started-lying-to-us/news-story/e23de04884ae82d03c314a3c352cb13b

  42. 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

  44. 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
