  1. I joined mainly to join and support the club. I'm now doing more surfing and virtually no tri training. I entered Geelong on an event credit, but have now planned a surf trip down to Johanna on that weekend instead.
  2. My credit didn't come up. I asked them on facebook and they said I could enter and pay and then email them to get the credit refunded or email them and get a code. I entered and then emailed. I received a credit today but not for the full amount (credited transfer fee but not original entry fee). Sent them another message and they are still working on credits and said I should receive another credit....
  3. Our dog gets dry food, bones and trainig treats! She is not allowed in the kitchen and eats her dinner outside while we have our dinner. The main reason for this was when we got her from the RSPCA as a 7month old (now 11 months) she had no boundaries whatsever and we ended up with 25kg's of dog on the table! So we started putting her outside with her food in Kong's and she actually loves it!
  4. I didn't get into tri until my late 30's. Before that it was mainly surfing, but that pretty much stopped when I moved from Geelong to Melbourne which was when I took up running which eventually led to tri's. Now 20 years later I've started surfing again, before lockdown I would head down to Jan Juc on Wednesday's and catch up with a mate I grew up surfing with and usually surf Winki. Can't wait to get back down there, and to UrbnSurf in Tullamarine. Like a few others I played squash for awhile, the most fun seemed to be the drinking sessions after each week's comp. We used to take t
  5. I used the link yesterday and got a credit, so must have broken overnight

    Many years ago a mate of mine worked as a baker and would come and get me after his shift. We would paddle out in the dark, scary as. Couldn't see the waves properly and every noise sounded like a shark. 😂 No way I’d do it now.

    Hoping to get back here when we get out of lockdown Edit: that's not actually me! But i have surfed here a couple of times pre lockdown
  8. Challenge Shepparton cancelled, no surprise there!
  9. I'm going to defer my SC entry, but waiting to see if they cancel/postpone and if they offer transfers to other events. If they offer transfers I might transfer to Geelong 2021 and hope it goes ahead. Otherwise I'll just defer SC to 2021, deadline for deferral at moment is July 30
  10. After losing our 6 year old staffyxridgeback at start of April I didn't hink I'd be ready for another dog till next year at eraliest. This is Poppy, a staffyxsharpei that was at the RSPCA. We went and saw her and promptly adopted her. 7 months old, was found wandering the streets and taken to RSPCA by the police.
  11. Are you going to keep going? I might join you if you want company
  12. We lost our 6 year old staffy-ridgeback to cancer at the start of April. She was listless one weekend, which was unusual for her. Took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with cancer and we were told she may have a couple of weeks. She went downhill very fast and stopped eating the next day, it was very hard but couldn't stand to see her suffer
  13. I have the Emonda as well and don't find it heavy, I believe it is lighter than the Madone and Domane.

    Geelong 70.3

    Any urchins this year?
  15. It's also on Kayo if you have it.
  16. I had very similar thoughts for a long time (ie: thoughts about suicide but not acting) and I just thought it was "normal" Then one day after a really stressy day I found myself veering the car towards the edge of a bridge... Only after this did I go to the GP and was put on a mental health plan and referred to a psychologist. So I think the below advice is gold. I didn't gel with my first psychologist, but they were good enough to acknowledge that and referred me to someone else. I can't say the thoughts have gone away, however they are less often and I
  17. I'm in. I have a bad history with this race with a coupe of DNS's. I had hoped to do have a good race but for a variety of reason's I haven't put the training in. So my plan is to get to the start line then just get through each leg best I can, so probably around 7 hours for me. A start will be a good result, a finish will be a bonus!

    Now a rolling swim start. SWIM COURSE UPDATE 🏊 Due to a large number of sea urchins currently calling the calm waters of Geelong home, we have made a few changes to the swim course to ensure our athlete's safety... 1. The swim course will now be a rolling wave start for all athletes. 2. The entrance to the swim course (and into the water) will be a narrow lined entry route with rubber mats to ensure safe entry to the water The FAQS 👇 So what time do I start? ⌚ Your start wave remains the same, however, the rolling entrance will allow
  19. When I had finger surgery and was stuck on wndtrainer for 12 weeks this was all I used. I found the courses more interesting than Zwift. I ended up on a beta they ran for AppleTV which helped sort out any glitches. I really enjoy it and no longer use Zwift. The control of my Kickr works well. Think it's definitely worth a trial.
  20. My partner nearly got taken out by a deer on the bike path between Kew Blvd and Warmer St Bridge about 6 months ago. It was 6am and dark and it just came bolting out of the scrub, luckily I had just convinced her to upgrade her commuter to a disc brake bike! Tonight on Kew Blvd I had 3 miner birds fly into my front wheel, 2 made it 1 not so lucky. Need to check my spokes!
  21. Nick I was going to ask the same as Turts and also suggest a CX, unless you are looking at doing some MTB on weekends? I use my CX for commuting and just updated my partner from a flat bar roadie to cx for her daily 25k commute, she's loving it.
  22. If you haven’t seen Rake you probably want to start at the first series. It was on Netflix so you could watch anytime!
  23. I can babysit it for you if needed. I won't run off as I'd need to get a plane home 😁 I can PM you my number if you want.
  24. I didn't try it, the tech info said it the adapter wouldn't fit on the K-edge TT Garmin mount so I just went the Barfly mount and replaced my K-edge one.
  25. I recently bought the barfly 4 one from Bikebug thats linked to above. I replaced my Kedge one with it as the Kedge adaptor didn't work with the TT mount. I've had it about 3 weeks and no issues with it, I use it with a Edge 520 and a Fly12CE.
