Ouch, dont think i could handle a waxing 

Your welcome to a free coffee if your ever in Norfolk though.

Barmy weather today, was like summer. Probably snow next weekend.

I went out on my bicycle yesterday.  First time outdoors since the autumn .  Beautiful day, cycled for 1¼ hours, and was reminded in no uncertain terms that, "if you don't use it you lose it"!  Really enjoyed myself, but some bits felt much harder than they should have.  The saddle, for starters.
Swimming is slightly more encouraging.  Did some timed 100m on Monday and have speeded up by 10 seconds since I last timed myself. Happy days

Haha, well done Nursey.

Agree about the saddle. My ass has been killing me after my first few rides recently. 

 

On the plus side, got my training mojo back

Well, I've been to Swimfit tonight and it wasn't nearly as taxing as my efforts earlier in the day - a zombie birthday cake and blood jelly with worms in!

Well, there were very specific instructions that there had to be "a man shooting the zombies with a bazooka so they fall onto the circular saws" ...

No swimming, biking or running done today but an hour of walking in the hills instead. Started off a perfect bracing spring day, but managed to get caught in a torrential downpour what had sleet in! Had to have toffee cake to fend off the hypothermia.

Does toffee cake also work as a preventative?

Exciting news. Tri plus magazine are doing an article on my Ironman Journey off the back of my blog. I have a photo shoot on Tuesday. Apparently one of the pics will be a double page spread. To fit my belly in i suppose

Really Melds? Oh how silly of me 

SD is going to be a centrefold!  Tell them to be careful where they put the staples.
