Well training has been terrible of late as this dam work stuff keeps getting in the way - bloody clients!!

And a certain loveable mutt has squandered my new Boardman Road Air 9.2s fund on her bloody vet bills!! In fact her bill is more than the bike ..... but what can you do!!

So ... you in town Monday night?

Ironman Wales for me next year, also signed up for Long Course weekend, Outlaw Half, a sportive in April and a 50k MTB race in March!

Training is pretty casual right now, just enjoying myself and having a bit of fun.  If swimming with tri club can be called fun...

Still waiting for a physio/MRI appointment for my knee, it's been feeling weird, stiff for a while.  Just started gentle running again and it's not too bad, but something's still not right.

Looking forward to seeing Sossige selling us coffee at events soon!

First Sossige dog event to be supplied with coffee will be TriAnglias Diss Dualathon on April 6th

Happy wee Nursey

Went for a swim today and our local GB age grouper was there too. We've not been at the pool together for ages, and the first thing she said to me was, "You've put a lot of work into your swimming. You've improved so much I didn't recognise you at first". She's someone who's always given me good advice and encouragement, so I was pretty chuffed. (Ignoring the implication that my swimming was previously shite  !)

Did my first swim in 3 months yesterday - boy was it hard work!!

And found out today that as part of a one million pound re-furb of the gym,  that nice Mr Branson is getting us half dozen Watt Bikes this week - that's the winter training sorted out!!

Bollinger and pringles - didn't realise you were such a classy lady, Nursey!!

I've got one more day of excess before getting back to reality and, possibly, training!
