  1. That's a bummer but fully understand and half expecting it. I think we will still head up there for the few days, relax, spend some money and think of what might have been. Thinking ahead though, if possible I may transfer my entry to Western Sydney.
  2. I ride from Engadine to Sutherland Bike Track for our duathlons 😆
  3. I entered the 70.3 for last May. When first postponed my accommodation was not available for new date but agent was able to transfer (with some hassle) to different accomm near transition so was good. However postponed again to May and that accomm not available but again we were lucky to be able to transfer to somewhere near the end of Clarence Street through the agent, again with some hassle.
  4. I often swim in the same small group as Roxii on Friday nights at Cronulla however this time of year and Covid makes the trip into Cronulla often challenging even from Engadine and parking can be difficult. There are many informal swim groups in the mornings. I swim with a Wednesday 10:00 group or the same group @9:45 Thursdays, mostly retired guys. You are more than welcome to join us Mick.
  5. I saw one two weeks ago.....a wobbygong.......must have been errrr five inches at least.
  6. Royal National Park (RNP) has two entry points heading South from Sutherland. One at Loftus which takes you through Audley via Artillery Hill and to turn offs to several beaches. I'm not a fan of this route as it can be relatively busy but only locals and day trippers and no shoulder but many ride it. I prefer the Southern entry at Waterfall and Head South down Waterfall Hill and through RNP to Bald Hill and loop back to Old Princes Hwy/New Princes Hwy back to Sutho. I usually do the reverse though because less motor traffic heading north. Waterfall Hill is similar to Bobbin Head from memory.
  7. Riveting stuff. Can't wait for tonight's episode.

    Longevity

    I've been in the sport since 1994 I think when I did my first "Ride N Stride" and then Nepean Triathlons. Was a runner only up to then getting into that at age 28. I've run eighteen marathons, Seven Ironmans, countless halves and shorter distances. Joined Transitions from its' inception although don't post much these days, but I lurk. I have met quite a few of its' members. I still train and race and a member of a Tri Club. Currently entered in Club Champs and Port 70.3. Did my last big race in 2019 at Big Husky and did 6:25. Tri for me is a bit like a marriage, I have past the hot urgen

    Remember "Tuffy's"?
  10. Yep, Port is off! Our options TBA.
  11. 2015 for me. I did have plans for Port this year but didn't work out. I have entered the half though and if all goes well will plan IM for 2021.
  12. I am low tech. Turbo, various structured sets, watch the clock, heart rate, cadence, speed. No time to watch anything else. Big fan of Ministry of Sound Annuals. I have many. Crank 'em up.
  13. I'm 65. I was always an MOP runner. Managed 5:30 minute ks in recent Sutho to Surf. Am "planning" to do IM OZ #8 next year after 5 year break but not 100% yet. I feel I can still do the run distance but that is yet to be tested. I had a knee meniscus tear tidied up 10 years ago which encouraged me to change my style to more midfoot. I think it worked and my style improved a lot. My joints feel OK. I have always performed some weight training including deadlifts and calf strengthening but should be more disciplined. I am prone to calf niggles but when that happens I seem to be able to relate it
