- what other sports?
Jedi – The ripon tri was hot – let us wear wear suits though which was a real bonus after last years no wet suit swim – I am crap at running and even Crapper(is that a word) when its warm. But i didnt stop on the run..although it felt like i could have walked faster!!!!!!!!!!!
Looking at Tri bikes this morning though so its not put me off for a old lad.Posted 3 years agobigad40Subscriber
Swimming, done some open water stuff (not this year yet)
Freediving. Joined a local group for some pool sessions which was very relaxing.
Next I need to do a foundation course and open water course.
Been some time since I played ultimate frisbee, touch rugby or any cricket.Posted 3 years agoScapegoatSubscriber
Used to do a lot of hillwalking until my hips put a stop to it. I now coach a rugby team, do a bit of road riding, shooting, used to shoot clays competitively, but was never very good, and MTBing has filled that space (and taken over the fiscal drain it provided). I also used to dive, until family responsibilities came along, and I saw a mate get a spinal bend on a training dive. I played Judo for a while but between that, rugby and motorcycling picked up more than a dozen fracture injuries and a few years ago it was time to admit my body was too damaged to carry on competitively. Now it’s just MTB for adrenaline. I know I’m on borrowed time as ill need both hips replacing soon, but for the time being I’m loving learning to jump and shred while I still can.Posted 3 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Used to do a lot of tris, but gave up in 2013. Became too expensive and got bored in the end. Went up to HIM but insufficient time to train properly for full IM
Endurance events/ ultra marathons
Want to do some adventure racing and orienteering. Might start a night running XC running club
Tennis every week and occassional cricket. Played county cricket and rugby in my youth.
Golf – ready for abuse
Skiing. Gave up on climbing and parapenting recently. Hard to fit with family responsibilities. Miss canoeing too.Posted 3 years agobrukSubscriber
Done Judo since I was knee high to a grasshopper and still love it. Coach now as well as just general randori, entered a masters competition last year and got my butt kicked but still loved the nervous anticipation before the fight.
Snowboard/ski holiday once a year.
Two wee boys means limited time for all but as they get bigger that should get better just as my body finally gives up!Posted 3 years agomonkeysfeetSubscriber
Up until recently Ju jitsu (traditional, none of this brazillian nonsense) but a back injury has put a stop to that 🙁
Just starting on setting up my own business so that has taken up a lot of time/cash. Nearly there, just some minor details and I should be up and trading in a couple of months. 😀Posted 3 years agoceepersSubscriber
