Triathlon hurts

Triathlon hurts

Hello World and Fellow Triathlon peeps! I know you must have been imagining the worst: the water finally claimed me. But no!! The depths I’ve been plumbing have been the workaday chasms of the mineral working world. And those of my own psyche. Not always the most scenic, but altogether absorbing. So, the little blog-let has […]

Top 10 ways to combine work & tri training

OMG. Hello. Are you still there? It’s been so long since I last blogged that WordPress barely recognised me. It wasn’t sure it should let me into my own webpage. Luckily, I had bruises to prove who I was. Having re-entered to world of Actual Paid Employment, blogging has had to take a backseat. Because working and tri […]

Fairy fenders: a progress report

So I guess you’re sitting by your computer anxiously awaiting updates on the progress of the vag-bollock? And it being a delicate subject, like literally delicate, I don’t suppose it’s really your typical conversational opener: how’s your hooha today? It’s not the sort of thing you write on your Facebook status either: Feeling – manly […]

Tri-umph and Tri-bulation

Tri-umph and Tri-bulation

When I started blogging about my best efforts and attempts to become a tri-athlete, I was hoping to regale you with my stories of tri-umph over adversity. (Or maybe that should read tri-umph over aptitude.) It was supposed to be more than a catalogue of my disasters and tri-bulations in the pursuit of mastery of 3 sports. […]

Life in the Slow Lane

Hello World! I thought it was about time I checked in here, in case you were you worried about me. I didn’t want those of you who don’t see me shambling round South Brisbane thinking I might be languishing at the bottom of a pool, my frantic splashing mistaken by the lifeguard for epic friendliness. […]

Adventures on Two Wheels

When I embarked on my crazy well thought through plan to train for a triathlon, I thought I knew all the important things that you need to know about bikes. Like: they have 2 wheels there are different types, like road bikes and mountain bikes and commuter bikes and maybe some others, but who really […]

City2South or #justcallmedavid

A funny thing happened on Sunday. Not necessarily funny haha, so if you’re looking for laughs, why are you even on my blog? No, I’m talking the other funny – odd, strange, in keeping with my personality… Sunday was deemed a rest day in the vague scheme in my head that is my “training plan”. And […]

Animal Farm parkrun and other stories

Animal Farm parkrun and other stories

This morning I got embroiled in Pigeongate. Who would have thought a pleasant sail on the CityCat and a gentle parkrun (aka walk) at New Farm would end up involving emergency calls to the RSPCA about a rabid pigeon. Well, maybe not rabid. But it was frothing at the mouth. I suppose I should have realised […]

Be more Oscar: have self belief

Oscar, for the uninitiated, is a cat. I’d say “my” cat, but that would be wrong on 2 counts. Technically, he is Twin2’s cat. And more importantly, Oscar is of the opinion that he owns us. He is a cat that likes to be outside, basking in the sun. He has a title: Lord Oscarmort and he […]

How to lose friends

Death by Turkey, Mystery Swimmer and a Gone Girl: it’s a wrap It’s been an eventful week. I’m not sure why I attract trouble, but I’m like a magnet. You’re lucky I don’t have time to write it all down, because you’d be bombarded with a constant stream of disaster posts from me… (Actually, that’s […]
