Going Down Fighting!


Sorry to hear you are sick mate. That’s what happens when you have 2 weeks holiday !! Just rest for a few days and walk the dog and you’ll be good to go before you know it.


Get well soon man. Sick and lifting don’t mix in the 40s


@simo74 2 weeks holidays start next week, haha. Our dates are a bit diff here.
@losthog I feel ya, although when I get sick now I actually feel better than when I was younger. I’ve managed to dodge a lot of the lurgies going around, so it’s about time to get one.

I reckon going and getting smashed last weekend didn’t do the old immune system any good.


You better get well for the holidays Luc :slight_smile:
Enjoy the camping despite no bonfires.


Same as us. We get the two weeks from next week as well.


Well, this lurgy kicked my ass a bit. Heaps of the kids in my class have had influenza A, I didn’t get tested for the shit. Felt fairly rough up until the weekend which i have spent doing shit around the house. Lots of gardening, at least it’s starting to look decent.
And I had to move 1 meter high pots, full of soil and plants to the Mrs in laws. Loaded em on here, got there and her partner looks at them and says, dunno what we gonna do here, so I carried the heavy suckers around the back! That was more than any freaking workout! At least the Mrs made some comments about how good I looked doing it, haha. That shit never happens

Light and easy one to get back into it.

I’m curious, what’s an underbar Tri extension?


Ignore that question, I forgot Google!


Dude this year everyone I know is getting crushed with sickness.


These fry my tris like nothing else, nice and slow and deep.


Yep. Tons of shit going around, and we’re not even in winter yet!


Thanks mate. It’s a rare thing, but certainly a win when it happens :+1:


Just got back from a few days in Sydney, ripper place, but fark it’s busy! People shit me at the best of times, this was next level, haha. All good, no lifting, heaps of walking, my phone tracked me at over 20 k’s every day :open_mouth:

Haha, I usually am, but the crowds of people that seem to be walking with their eyes shut or staring at their phones gives me the shits, I mean FFS, put the thing down and watch where your going and don’t give me a look when you walk into me and realise I’m an immovable object :wink:


And I bet you dropped the odd shoulder just to wake them up too. Quality
