    Heart Rate worry

    Also be aware that the standard deviation for the "average" heart rate for your age is +/- 12 beats per minute!, so perhaps you are 2 or 3 stardard deviations from the mean, varying your calculations by 2 to 3 x 12 bpm for each zone calculation...
  3. yeah, thank god my dog's always sitting on my lap on the couch at night
  4. I think it's dissapointing that 'the powers that be' that like to 'educate' us on global warming etc always fail to mention the enormous impact that the 10 billion + animals raised for human consuption every year make on the environment. The contribution of the billions of tonnes of waste they excrete and emit, the fuel used in transporting them buy the truckload to the slaughterhouse, and the millions of acres of land cleared and soil destroyed by factory farming. They see this as an acceptable thing because, hell, what would we do if we couldn't all eat meat!? A day's food for a me
  5. I don't know about getting trans-fats from milk, but there's lots of other 'stuff' in there.... http://www.notmilk.com/kradjian.html
  6. http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.htm Only 9 amino acids cannot be made by the body, hence the term 'essential' amino acids, there is plenty of successful vegan athletes out there too.
  7. There is always tonnes of glass on the roads around there unfortunately, mostly in from of Queens Warf, fantastic effort to persist with 2 flats! My day= ok swim, pretty good ride, SHAMEFUL run, but it was only my 3rd race this year, and I've done nothing but easy stuff since IM, so I was just happy to be having a go and supporting a local event. Will definitely be back next year. Best part of the day was watching Nathan Stewart annihilate the ride!!
  8. After getting sick of Asics changing their models from one season to the next I gave Kevin Tiller a call re: Locos back in August, he was a fantastic help and had lots of time for me, sending me 2 pairs to try out to see which ones I liked best. I have now been running in the Mojo's 4x a week and have had no problems at all after having 2 stress fractures in the last 2 years. They aren't the prettiest shoes out, but they work!!
  9. I'll be there......very tough bike, it was hard enough at the Duathlon World's last year and we didn't even start at the very bottom of King Ed. Park ....but it'll be fun!

    OT: Any Vegans?

    fortunately I am the cook in the house, and love cooking, so It's no issue for me, I think it really broadens your ideas and skills in cooking. this video was really the crunch for me: http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/video.asp video=mym2002&Player=wm&speed=_med edit: not sure how to get the link to work but the whole text should be the address, not the underlined bit.

    Good old Dapto Skating Rink, my first job was as DJ there on a Sunday!!!.....and the occasional road trip to Nowra (often in AJ's car!) with a stop at the Berry Donut Van on the way home......but I learnt to skate at the old Wollongong Rink, on Saturday mornings they were still cleaning the blood off the floor from the night before prior to the start of our lessons

  22. yeah, the thing was they lived with them for about 10 years before the attack, you wonder what was different that night..... closer to home, crocodiles freak me out too, i will never forget seeing the sign on the beach up at palm cove where the swim for the cairns half ironman used to be, it said no swimming due to crocodiles!!
  23. roxii your jokes normally crack me up, but those ones..... i'll just have to grin and bear it
  24. bears freak me out, i'd never go camping out there! did anyone watch that "Grizzy Man" doco?? about the guy who lived with the bears for years before he and his gf were mauled to death one night. their death was recorded buy their video camera but the lense cap was left on, so only the sound of their death was evidence of what happened.....
