Okay okay � Le Chaddy has noted that my blog hasn�t been updated in a while so this will be the comprehensive blog entry to fill in all the news that has happened.

1. Mudgee Planners Conference.
It was pretty dull except that I got a chance to catch up with an old work colleague, oh and almost killed myself in a minor car accident. But don�t worry, I wasn�t injured, the car was merely scratched but since it was a work car it doesn�t matter anyhow, I think the only scars are the ones on my perception of my own inability to control a vehicle on country roads and gravel.

2. Perth
WOOHOO! We won the national titles! On the road to Shanghers, baby! Of course the victory is bittersweet because it now means I have to work my arse off to keep my place on the team for the retrials. I plan to move up in the team rankings � but this means I will continue to have no life other than paddling� The trip was great though, really felt like a break especially with the time difference of two hours, except on the first few days I fell asleep before 8pm, don�t know what was going on there, I think it was the stress of racing and work and sleep deprivation. Anyhow I highly recommend a trip to Rottnest Island if you�re ever in Perth. AND the only way to get there in style is by plane. It costs about the same as going by ferry only you save yourself 1.5 hours on a boat and you get to see the Island and water from above! Plus you definitely have to cycle right around the island, it�s not very big so we did the entire island in a few hours, and we got to play with the Quokkas, who look like huge rats but are actually wallabies, they are really cute! Kim and Darran adopted one of them and we named him Barry Quokka (geddit?!) he�s actually a toy one, but we took pictures of him in his natural habitat and all.. will show you pics of him later.

3. So what does this no life mean? It means I�m going on a diet. Muahhahahhahaha! No. REALLY. I�ve never been one to diet, I usually just eat what I want in the false hope that any little bit of exercise will cancel out any over indulgences! But if I�m going to get hardc0re serious about the time trials, then the weight will have to come off! Unfortunately that means counting the ratio of Carb Fat Protein in my diet. I�m interested to see what will happen if I stick to a proper training program!

okay blog out!
