For those not yet up to IM
Maths I've never done a half ironman persifice plan but in the middle of reading up on one because of a forumite asking for some advice on it and from what i can tell you will be cool starting from scratch come the new year. Might be worth treating this as a opertunity and getting realy good at swimming over the next couple of months.
thanks cake, yeah, as soon as I can get mobile again I will start with the swimming
think my right buttock is going to get very strong - I haven't really moved around much but it is aching already!
brit - thanks. Someone else said cycling gloves,
I have a backpack for transporting stuff from the kitchen to the sofa, and need to wash out a flask so I can transport coffee through too
it is only wednesday, they will change the forecast before Sunday
Looking forward to cheering you on (virtually) for Sunday ST and Alibear
No training all week cos I am leading a kids holiday club and having to feed a whole host of volunteers. Although today I did do a 200 metre dash dressed as Kermit the Frog. Raced against one of my unfit teenagers and had to lose cos it was my turn to be gunged in the tank. Someone had put baked beans in with the gloop. And I got pied in the face twice today! All great fun. I am not 17 I promise.... I truely am 37yr old mum of four. But I am voted 'Coolest Mum' by all the youngsters. A title I am tremendously proud of.
Although I am quite looking forward to all the children going back to school and resuming a bit of swim, bike run next week.
Sounds too cool for school chili... Congrats on your marafun by the way!Good luck at the weekend peeps, sure you will do yourselves proud!Another 20min run done today, gym tomorrow - all well so far. Nights next week so will see how I cope. Thank crunchie its Fri tomorrow!
chili - sounds like really good fun
ST/Ali - good luck on Sunday - so gutted I am not going to be there but I will be willing you on. Can't wait to read the race reports. We emailed the hotel and they have been good and said they won't charge us so that's not too bad
Ali just in case you havn't spotted it there are photo's from the zombie run thing on flicker.
If you look on the set's the mrs cake is on the zombie chase times 12.30 to 13.00 she's in medical scubs SOLB from the chubhouse in on there as well with a mundane thread I like cheese T-shirt on.
There is a picture on there of me but not sure where it is afraid you can't use your race number to find the pictures.
Oh found me look in the set's on flicker for the forest village (men 1230 - 1300 I'm there in medical scubs.
