  1. If you use Facebook, join a group called 'We Ride Mountain Bikes'. There are 20k members, a lot from OZ. Admins are a mtb training group that run out of Stromlo in Canberra A lot of peeps would have ridden Derby & Maydena & I'm sure you'll find some good advice on there
  2. Heading to Thredbo this weekend, if Sat is looking crap weather wise will definitely give this a go, cheers
  3. We all felt pretty sick as we rode past, we commented on the accident just a week ago nearby. It didnt look good from what we could see. Still seems to be plenty of aggression by some drivers today - summer is here & I guess it brings out some of the knuckleheads. I hope she is going to be alright
  4. I would be dropping Watson & Smith. Like Capt U says, only 2 x 100's in 40 tests - that's not good enough from one of Aust's best. Smith ain't ready yet for test cricket, he needs to mature a bit more, another couple of years ? I would put Warner & Khawaja in. I'd also pull Hughes & Gowan aside & give them a bit of a one-on-one - an extra special pep talk Aust needs to lift to have any chance, saying that England will also respond. If England see any cracks opening up in the side they'll be in there with a crow bar.
  5. I have both pairs, the 400 mile is very good for riding, I dont know if you would want to run in them as the pad is pretty big - but I suppose you could. The 4 pocket short is also good, minimal pad which you find in most tri shorts so its good to run in. I find that over 80 - 90k's on the bike they can get a bit uncomfortable, but that's my experience. And to add to this, I find they fit a little too high up around the waist, I find shorts that are low cut or fit around the hips are more comfortable for longer runs.
  6. Glad wrap - toasty as when you don't want to use over shoes
  7. Yesterday, 120k ride then 6k run holding ~ 4m20s Today - nadda
  8. I ordered 2 x tubbies from Wiggle on Monday, chose the fast delivery option. They arrived first thing this morning. Very happy. The DHL docket says it was shipped from the UK. Portsmith, Hants.
  9. Thailand ( Phuket ) is great around Xmas time, the weather is good, but it is peak season. We stayed at the Sunwing hotel at Kamala, really good for kids with loads of organised activites. http://www.sunwingkamala.com/ - it is right on the beach
  10. To me it sounds one sided, no mention of what kind of protein to eat - just a pic of juicy beef Shall I order a bacon & egg roll & coffee, dont eat the buns - 3 times a day - & be rest assured & I am eating adequately. Sounds almost like an add for fast food Here's another view http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturated_fat_and_cardiovascular_disease_controversy
  11. I dont use a jacket, I layer up & if its really cold I use a wind vest as well. You do sweat a little more under a wind vest but it sure takes the sting out of cold air.
  12. 8k run, 1st km at moderate pace then the rest at 10k pace 2k swim this arvo
  13. Did have a 90k ride + 16k run brick session on the cards, got up with blocked sinuses & slight sore throat. Changed to a steady 14k run at 10.00am when the sun was out. The brick session will have to wait till next Sunday
  14. Heavy rain - running becomes a chore, your shoes get waterlogged. Dangerous to ride in stormy, windy weather - being seen by drivers is diminished. Light rain & occasional showers is fine with me
  15. 80k ride from Centennial to Kurnell & back - easy to moderate Followed by home made green juice & sausage sanga
