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

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

The Devil Wears Cleats

The Devil Wears Cleats

Turns out I’m not a total natural in cleats. Which is disappointing, as I thought I would be. Why, I don’t know. Based on my only similar experience, which is ski boots attached to skis, where I generally use falling over as my preferred method of disengaging one from the other, my surprise at being rubbish at […]

Daring Greatly

Was I was discussing – OK – rambling about my reading habits recently and confessing that I’ve started reading about 20 books this year? Of which I’d only managed to finish about half….I think I told you that. Yes? Anyhoo… Actually 10 books in 15 weeks is pretty good going for me. I read v-e-r-r-r-y  s-s-s-l-l-l-o-o-o-o-o-o-w-w-w-w–l-l-y. However, my […]

Heroes

2016 is being a bit of a bitch and I think someone needs to sort it out! First it snatched Bowie and Rickman, now Prince. Along the way, it’s taken Terry Wogan (who actually WAS Eurovision, the singing was just a side show) and Ronnie Corbett, even Paul Daniels: pillars of the British televiewing establishment: staples of […]

Running for oldies

The Long Jog to Comrades 2 Comments
Running for oldies

When I spoke to my mum on the phone, she was worried about me being injured. “After all you’ve got to be careful as you start getting on a bit”. Thanks Mum! (She does worry. She would worry that she hasn’t got something to worry about; she’s that sort). But it was not old age […]

A Kind of Happiness Project

A Kind of Happiness Project

Or for short, A Kindness Project… I may have had a shopping basket accident before Christmas. In Kikki K. It all started with the hunt for a Secret Santa gift. OK, announcing this on my blog might not help the secretness of the santa-ing, (although my blog is, in itself, pretty secret), but I felt it necessary […]

To Tri or not to Tri

To Tri or not to Tri

I think I have a case of the post Road Trip blues. My tri training has gone off the rails. And I’m in a bit of a funk. I’ve read 2 inspiring and empowering books, Triathlon for the Every Woman and A Life Without Limits, and rather than feeling uplifted, like I did when I […]
