Now the Audax riders worry me, the lycra just doesnt match and they always wear that yellow top :shock:

Now this guy is an Audex rider, I am sure he is a really nice guy and he may even be on this very forum.
But what is this guy wearing. :shock:

please some one help me out here. Is this what I have became. I did find a white hair under my arm pit and that freaked me out. :shock: :?
So just think what an audix ride will do to me. :mrgreen:

LOL, Yes, that was some of my best work, 8) and today they took my mattress away to fix it into a firm, no one likes it soft, it's just not good for your back. :x
If it doesnt work I will just have to buy a new one again but not "Sealy". I am done with them. :evil:

Sometimes you erad something on the internet that you don't believe (Apple giving up the bike) and you ignore it thinking it will go away!! Well, it's looking like my plan is working and you may not have to give it all away after all. Phew :)

I've recently gone with a full latex mattress. Love it. Very supportive and Mr Moo doesn't notice what ridiculously late time I come to bed and I don't notice what ridiculously early time he gets up!!

Damn...I shouldn't have posted as everything was working out fine when I was ignoring it!!

why Hellooooooo!" long time no see moonsterbounce :D
People are talking about this latex mattress, but all I think of is gloves :shock:
Why are you home late and without Mr Moo 8)

Well Sealy returned the mattress yesterday after making it harder so maybe it will be go and I hope the back feels better soon.
I did ride on the windtrainer but only for a few minutes, Because Boobhispania next door didn't like it set up near the pool :roll:

I have to post the Hellooooooooooooo from Jerry for you. :mrgreen:

I been around :wink: Busy though. Trying not to embarrass myself in a teeny weeny tri this weekend so lots of training. Unfortunately, still lots of eating!! My ex-melburnian friend was nasty and talked me into this...and the next one in 4 weeks...grr!!

Anyhoo, I'm never home late - I prefer to go to bed late and sleep in but mr moo is worse than a sparrow. He got into the habit when the Black dog was a pup and wanted to play at 5am but in nearly 10 years hasn't got out of it!! I mean, the Black Dog is now very grey and Mr Moo has to wake him up!! Both hounds refuse to get up before 6 ;)

Hope the mattress is ok this time around. To be honest, all Mr Moo's back issues stopped when he strengthened it by riding and paddling. Maybe you should do more? :) Now I have him on a ski, his core is heaps better than in the kayak as he can't lean back to rest anymore. Just waiting now for him to get a growths thing cut out of his wrist and we can paddle more again. I'm looking at an upgrade to a Fenn maybe so need to get on the water more!!

I'm always around...watching...hiding... :twisted:

Go Girl :D :D well done. I used to love my triathlons, but I became obsessive compulsive :roll: that's why my back gave up the first time.

LOL. I am the same with my doggy, she is 6 and every morning I go down to take her for our special walk, but it seems I am more excited then her :?

Well second night tonight on the Mattress so I hope it will be ok, I think I need to start streching my hamstrings. I can't wait to get a double kayak, Mr apple only like to play the piano 24/7

Now I have him on a ski, his core is heaps better than in the kayak as he can't lean back to rest anymore. Just waiting now for him to get a growths thing cut out of his wrist and we can paddle more again. I'm looking at an upgrade to a Fenn maybe so need to get on the water more!!

I will need to ask you for tips on kayaking, I love mine but I get so scared of the ferries. :shock:

Try getting an 8.5 and a 9.5 year old pair of great Danes out of bed on a cold or wet morning!! Daphne is always up for a walk, but finds she's allergic to rain!! Luckily Perth managed only 28mm over summer so no issues once they are up!!

Just don't like sitting on a forum listening to a bunch of people rate their tubes is all... I find that they're all pretty good till you get a puncture. And also, $20.00 shorts from Aldi aren't comfortable but spending over $150.00 for bibs IS worth it, anyone who tell you they are is a liar.

I come by and read sometimes, I have work, training... Oh yeah. I has people to hang with :)
