  1. That doesnt look like one of your fishing pics ... the beer cans are missing 😁
  2. 2022 is a great option FP, as you say youll have 2 other events that you trained for & finished in your body so your strength & fitness will be there. Plus IMO youll have seen your weaknesses in training know what needs work. Maybe get in touch with a mountain running group & learn all you can from them. You could do some of their runs/training weekends as well? Maybe have plan A & plan B & be happy to go with plan B when youre out there & know you wont make a cut off or you back calls time? Im looking forward to reading all about it ☺
  3. Thats very exciting FP, a very specific training regime with a focus on core strength, proprioception, running poles etc?
  4. Hi Rob, yeah its not much fun trying to manage my gut issues which includes lactose & fructose intolerance. After trial, error, lots of puking in races & finally getting medical help, things are improving a lot
  5. @Infinit Jase are you making a gel? My gut doesnt handle energy in a fluid form; I can only drink water
  6. Another great race report Kevin, thanks for sharing & I reckon you have the best support crew 😍 Ummm whats with almost forgetting to take off your swim layer before jumping on the bike - I thought we nailed that one last season 🤔😉😊😊
  7. Thanks Crappy, I did a search on Fast Gear, theyre selling for $5 per gel. You got a bargain at $4 !!
  8. Torq gels have been recommended, is anyone using them & if so, where are you buying them? Thanks all
  9. Nice work FP, you've been putting together some consistent training
  10. Great Pic 😍 Watch out Kieran their aim now is to be faster than Dad, youre gonna have do some training to hold them off for as long as possible lol

    Training the Mind

    Prince makes a good point about meditation. Ive read about people that practice meditation & have friends that do it, it seems like a good way to gai balance & calm. Me? Im crap at meditation! Been to various retreats & classes & those wafty sing-song voices do my head in like finger nails on a chalkboard. I was told to try active meditation which for me is swimming where I count my strokes & breathing. I cant think about other stuff 'cos I lose count. I swim peacefully & relaxed. Love it!
  12. Take care FP & all the best for you n all the family x

    New Knicks

    Ive got these in white, theyre really comfortable😌
  14. What happened to the afternoon events? Go or no go?
  15. Nice work 😊 Its great when you feel healthy/well & can see some progress rather than feeling shite. Happy Days 😎
  16. Thats a positive - you're maintaining instead of going backwards after not feeling the best OR, its still last week, not this week 😃
  17. Have a brilliant race day! Looking forward to your race report 😊
  18. Thanks FB - I was doing some PT sessions to see if I like it. I think youre right re the generic stuff. The kb swings were part of the sessions yet they always left me with a sore back. Ive seen so many people do them & I was told theyre good for making the posteria chain strong. So I tried them out. My interest is to look after myself as I get older Really appreciate you taking the time to reply Cheers
  19. Thanks FB, lots of info in here. So I should focus on the weakness that the KB swings have highlighted instead of doing the KB swings? And yep, burpees, box jumps & squat jumps were always part of tbe PTs routine 😊
  20. FB - Ive got a question re KB swings if you dont mind helping out. Ive previously worked with 2 PT's & neither have shown me what Im doing wrong because KB swings hurt my lower back. I dont do them anymore or train with a PT Any tips would be appreciated Cheers
  21. From memory we always complained the swim was measured wrong, too long
