Long Time Between Drinks

It has been too long since I last wrote! Rather than doing a crappy flashback I thought I would do a short and sweet summary. Here goes

I spent 250 dollars on a new helmet. It is red. Which must mean it is fast and bloody safe

I almost drowned using a kick board (think red flotation device from Baywatch). Have you ever tried to do laps using one of these things? It is hard work

I went cycling with an expert – it is amazing what you can learn. I was not using the correct gears, did not have the correct seat position, right body structure …..

The person I went riding with is so skinny that lycra is actually baggy on him

I pushed an 85 kilo Greek man up and down a gym hall until I almost threw up

I learnt how to take the wheels off my bike. Unfortunately I am not 100% sure how to put it back together

I am starting to run in tri shorts…they are lycra and way too tight

I bought a pair of white boots to play football in. In 27 years of playing footy I have only ever had black ones. These ones have silver on them…..

I heard one of the more funny jokes recently “ If Kevin Rudd wants to apologise for anything he should apologise for Adelaide”

I swam for 1 Kilometre. I remember when I could not swim a lap without drowning. I can feel the self belief building

With the start of the biggest loser I have been able to indulge in my secret pleasure – eating ice cream whilst watching big people exercise.

I heard that Sly Stallone has released another sequel to Rambo. So lately he has done another Rocky movie then a Rambo movie. Has he finally given up on coming up with new ideas (fair enough if you have ever had to sit through “Get Carter”)? Whats next……Tango and Cash 2? Stop or my mom will shoot again (is Estelle Getty even alive?)
