Got Questions? Need advice?
Join other women in discussing cycling.
I can organise to stay on till Tuesday if you like and we could ride on the Monday after the tri, good recovery session.
Don't worry about taking my threads of topic, no matter how hard I try its bound to happen.
The NSW 200k event I am doing is in the final stages of being organised so I am not 100% sure of the dates but I think it is literally the same weekend as Noosa, so I am unlikely to be back on SE Qld soil and able to get the time to ride on the tuesday ...was hoping you were around for another week holidaying .
Actually as I think about it there are two other big rides in the area in the couple of weeks before and after. Bris to Gold Coast is usually the fortnight befor (100k mass participation event, with many doing the round trip to make it 200k), and the Rainbow Ride is a fortnight after (Byron Bay to Coolongatta Imperial Centuary). Is any of this tempting you to stay in the area for a while???...probably stretching it to say that the Rainbow ride is in the area...it is a bit south
ANYWAY..as I said my NSW event is not finalised so I'll let you know how it is shaping as the details come through in case we can make this happen.
How are you travelling up and back to Noosa? Plane to Maroochydore I assume...or flying in and out of Brisbane...or driving??????
I'm not really doing much over 70km for a while, rather sick of long distance, even 50km is boring, 40km is good.
Queensland... Yeah what can I say, I don't overly like it up there... Noosa is cool though, I'm heading to Sydney in January... Hopefully to ride with the NSW contingent, I don't have time to stay longer in Noosa, I'm only there to compete really and then home again.
And I also said I'd go to south Australia at some point, I'll do some thinking
Needless to say I love it...but each to their own
It was very relaxed... I find relaxed difficult to do
I'm sure being a good daughter brings good karma. Hopefully this coming week will be better for you.
Ohhhh Ohhh Ohhh....please tell. I can cook up a storm but poaching an egg has always eluded me.
ok splash of vinegar, just so the water has a slight taste to it.
The water shouldn't be that really rough boiling, water should be clear boiling, so you can see the bottom of the pot.
Give the egg a really good crack and make sure your very close to the water when you split the egg (so close that you burn your fingers, he says you'll get used to the pain!)
And then when you take them out, rest them on a clean tea towel to absorb the water and then put on toast.
Haven't tried it yet though.
THanks... hoping for good Karma
Lets try this again... internet failure at the moment.
Another 2 weeks and I think I'll have my stroke perfected, obviously there is always room for improvement, I'm gettting coached privately once a week now and today lucky me... everytime I screwed up I got to go back to the start, this is painful.
I've had two excellent run sessions this week and hope to do a really good run tomorrow morning of about 16km.
Bike wise I've been on the trainer recently and in discussions about changing my set up so I can put out more power... compact isn't working for me enough, need some bigger chain rings.
Officially a size 14... looking forward to being a 12
I love running, just did 10km and enjoyed every km, I'm faster and I'm lighter and I'm elite.
Having a chat to a friend today and he was like, "why triathlon Row?" My Answer... I enjoy the endurance aspect and I enjoy the pain... ok so its not the real reason but it will do for now till I'm ready to share the real reason.
He suggested 24 hours races... I said, "next year I'll look at it, although I like the idea of Duathlon, run, cycle and then run again...."
Ha! I had a great weekend, did 16km (run) on Sunday and then went out on the bike in the afternoon (70km), it was nice after spendning so many hours on the trainer in the past few days... although its getting terrible cold, swam on Saturday, twas good.
Got this in my email today, "Running has the power to change your life. It will make you fitter, healthier, even happier." I'm sure the same can be said for cycling and I could 100% say the same about cycling, but I've got better lung capacity because I run and I swim.
The other reason I do this is because somewhere along the way a heap of people said, "you can't" oh and then they started rolling there eyes at me being elite, trust me when I say I am.
P.S. Best revenge is to rub someone's nose in it
On that note, who'd have though Sarah Reinertsen would be able to finish Kona?
Sometimes you just have to go out there and prove people wrong.

Now THAT women is an inspiration, so many women are and they have no idea.
I think we should all make it a habbit to tell the people that we think they're inspiring when we think it... no point in keeping it all bottled up.
You can tell me. I can take it.
Make sure you include something about my modesty as well. I think it is really ... shiny.
I wouldn't be as good as I am without you! It's you're fault I'm this elite!!!!
I just wanted to say thanks to all these people for keeping me sane, keeping me motivated and making me laugh.

If you didn't make the list its because of three possible reasons a) I don't like you b) we don't have much contact c) I forgot... don't take it personally.
Tri training is still going well, it seems as though swimming isn't going to be my worst leg... which I'm rather surprised by.
P.S. Yeah I'm still Elite... so are the people on this list... everyone else HTFU

actually you didn't turns out it was hanzao... but your cool to
Heads up - Noosa is tipped to sell out within hours.
Especially since the legends (people who have raced Noosa >10 times) and people who raced Mooloolaba earlier this year as early birds (this includes me) have access to early entry.
So I am already registered but I know you can't yet.
9am - 1st June. IF YOU CANNOT BE ONLINE AT 8:55 READY TO GO THEN GET A TRUSTED FRIEND TO DO IT FOR YOU.
Otherwise all your hard work is for naught.
Oh - and check out my new wheels
Awesome... nice nice nice nice nice wheels.
Hey how much is Noosa entry?
$200 for TA members. I believe something like $220 or so for non-TA members.
It is all on their website.
You will need to book accomodation ASAP as well if you want to be close to the tri.
I have accom, did that last month
This guy could be blowing smoke or it could be worse than I thought
If you want to follow the conversation:

Just emailed a friend of mine whose involved with USM too see if they know anything.
OK Noosa is officially 90% sold
Why am I doing this?
