Less is more: Mooloolaba Triathlon Race Report

Ah Mooloolaba – the Loo with a View. What a day we had. A day where my race went down the toilet. A day of lessons. And the lesson I learned was that if anyone tells you “less is more”, don’t believe them. I did less training (at least in the last 4 weeks of […]

Gatorade QTS 7 Race Report – Raby Bay

Gatorade QTS 7 Race Report – Raby Bay

Raby Baby 4:15am is a ridiculous time of day. Particularly on a Sunday. It’s ridiculous if you’re conscious, at least. If you’re not conscious, then you are in the lucky position of not having to assess the ridiculousness of 4:15am. You are being sensible and sleeping, and you can remain in that state for several more […]

My Garmin Heart

My Garmin Heart

As you know, I have a bit of a Garmin obsession. And despite my best efforts to deal with this unfortunate affliction, Santa made things worse. And he brought me another little Garmin gadget to delight my heart. Although it’s a bike Garmin, so was technically a gift for my bike, not me. I think […]

On Chafe: “Ode to Sudacrem”

On Chafe: “Ode to Sudacrem”

I was inspired after my run today by the memory of John Keats’ Ode to Autumn, a poem that we did to death at school. Those in Mrs Oldfield’s English class, I give you: Ode to Sudacrem – a poem about chafe. Pure classic literature, right there.   SEASON of heat and cloying humidity, Close bosom-friend of […]

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 […]

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.

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

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 […]

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 […]
