  1. I was a Stackhat kid 😆
  2. Make sure you have read the race maps and know where you are going! Swim - I think most races in NSW these days are rolling starts due to 'rona (or limited groups/pairs), so no big crowds to deal with, but if you feel nervous at all, hang back or to the side to get some space. Bike - Enjoy the ride. Practice drinking (and eating if you need) on the bike. You want to make sure you don't wobble or swerve while trying to drink Run - Practice running off the bike, your legs need to learn what this is! Make sure you know how to count! I've had people come in after what the
  3. Yeah depending on the club and grade you are in be prepared to come off. 🤣 Last time I did crits was 2018 and someone nicknamed C grade "crash grade" think they were turning over 1 spill every couple of weeks!
  4. The Obamas were just as affectionate as well. I love how that other guy left early. Some corners reckon it was so he could take off and land in "Air Force One" as the name would have changed to something else as soon as Biden was sworn in. 🤣
  5. Yeah, add a review, people need to know how much trouble you went through. #helpabrotherout
  6. I've not had an issue with them either. We used them to book all the way though Switzerland, Germany and Austria. In Australia, I use them to search and then book directly if available, but with a lot of places the online booking is through one portal or another anyway, and I don't need to call them, which takes up their time. Edit: Reviews disappear off booking.com - a place I stayed in while in suburban Melbourne has reviews dating back to 2019. I stayed in 2017 and my review was scathing, mainly as I copped bed bugs (oh god I think I am itching now at the thought). Do a look on G
  7. That above is the official date it should have been designated as a pandemic. It crossed international boundaries. It took TWO months. By about Feb we had people coming back from overseas not coming into the office on company advice. The Chinese massage places had signs saying that none of their staff had been overseas and were not displaying any symptoms.
  8. Not for PayPal. There is for Active though 🤣
  9. Yeah, that seems correct, every time I run a refund for the Club Races via PayPal they refund the fees they take as well.
  10. If it works like the Fuselage (Shiv) then some water remains in the tube so easy enough to get fluid. Only issue one reviewer found was difficulty in refilling, seems to be hard to put in and remove, but if you are doing IMOZ or Husky courses that is a god send 🤣 @BNothling much the same here. Even though I only use for water, it's valuable.
  11. Hey Flannie Lake Parramatta - you can swim there, but the eels get cranky 🤣 also line of sight is not great, so swimming alone is not advised. I might get Scotty to follow me in the inflatable. Regatta Centre - you can swim there for $10 or so, but you need to have a spotter walking beside you, so I have only done swims in groups there, theres a form that needs to be filled in. You would have to make sure the competition lake is open. Silver Beach in Kurnell is another candidate, one coach I used to know (passed away now) used to get her ladies to swim there, it has a 200m or
  12. Make sure you drop a review on Google as well, just in case they disappear from Booking.com Link to Google Reviews (if it works) Edit: I just checked the pricing for Husky Weekend for two - $1000 for 2 nights, for 2 people, crazy considering how far it is from the race.
  13. 😡 Does Tedros really have any right to speak now? He took forever to pull his head out of his ass and call a spade a spade (or in this case a pandemic a pandemic). Yup WHO, go sit in your corner while the world fixes it.
  14. I was happy for both sports to run as they were not from overseas, and the majority seemed to deal with it ok (they were just happy to play!). I was extremely disappointed at only seeing some players "slapped on the wrist" for breaking quarantine and being allowed to play the next match, including one of our own players. (Nathan Cleary from Panthers let strange chicks into his house, as shown on a TikTok video).
  15. I reckon with the lockdown you guys endured you would be doing anything to make sure you don't go through that again. In my part of Sydney (Ryde and Canada Bay) see around 85% wearing them properly, the other 15% are dopes with them being worn as earrings or chin warmers while talking on the phone (and near others on escalators) or wearing them with their nose poking out.
  16. I'm loving the comments on Facebook, mostly - "don't like it, leave", "get the F*** out"...Is there anyone out there FOR the tennis? 🤣
  17. I read South Coast and immediately went to Husky, where it takes a bank loan to get a place on Big Husky weekend. One provider even had the cheek to jack up his prices (by a large amount) when someone I know requested a repeat booking for the 3rd year in a row. (might I note theres always people going down there for a weekend away)
  18. Yeah I know, I've been using it, when it was released (as a 40km video) one of my mates said he was going to get his kids to stand either side and just punch him in the kidneys 🤣
  19. I did my run, but I decided with an off belly and the fact I cracked it at my shitty pace this morning I would not swim this afternoon. The pool will be packed full of idiots anyway. Will be nicer when the weather cools
  20. As far as I can see, everyone I know is pissed about the tennis as well. We're adding it to the list of stupidity, people being allowed to isolate at home, aircrew being put into city hotels and being trusted to stay put, Melbourne Cup, Cricket tests now this. I thought the idea of supression was to close the borders to non-residents or citizens, then put those who need to come home into hotel quarantine. Guess that was not the idea after all! Might move over to WA! VIC, NSW and QLD are just suckers for dollars.
  21. Just the bathrooms then.... 🤣 🤢
  22. Yeah flight is 18 hours, possibly more. Charter flight, so would be direct. I'd assume in an environment like a plane that anyone who might have been negative prior would have had a good chance of the virus multiplying enough ((or catching it) and registering a positive result on the other end. Filthy things those long haul flights 🤣
  23. Week two of IMOZ training coming to an end. 2h40min bike + 10min run off the bike. Rode on Rouvy, ended up choosing the Ironman Barcelona course. 1h40min run tomorrow and a 60min swim, then a rest/low volume week. Coach has me doing 2 weeks on, 1 week off.
  24. Neither did I. Our wedding is planned for June, my family is coming up from Victoria. We also have our honeymoon planned for Tasmania. Might start looking at the last days I can make any cancellations on any of it.
  25. Yup, that would be lockdown. In Sydney we were lucky enough to go outside and exercise for more than 1 hour, but once the exercising was done, there was nothing to do except sit on the couch and watch TV. I could not handle it, I'm also one of those people who is not interested in any form of crafty stuff. I prefer to wander out for a lunch or a bevvy or two, or go to another suburb further away and see friends. As for work friends mentioned above, they can change to out-of-work friends if there is something in common besides work and drinking after work. I am on the bad end of that one I
