Aww, Chuggy, so sorry to hear that we will miss each other again. We are staying in the De Doelen (Ithink that's what it's called).
Fantastic pedalling Podds. I couldn't do 112 miles in three days at the moment.
Hope all goes well on Wednesday Sluggie. What exactly are you having done?
Yums, can I ask why your Buddhist teacher was texting you at 2am?
I see from FB that XB has been fairly local to me at Saltaire and Bingley Five Rise Locks (Leeds Liverpool canal).
We've had a lovely day The weather has been fantastic this last couple of days. This morning we picked up a couple of friends and went to a car boot sale. We drove over Ilkley Moor in glorious sunshine but down in the valleys there was a thick white mist. Then we came back to ours and I made an impromptu buffet lunch and we had an Easter Egg hunt in the garden. To say there wasn't a child amongst us there was a very competitive hunt between four of us We finished off with a walk around Oakwell Hall (which was featured in 'Shirley' by Charlotte Bronte) with the dogs.
Well done Yums on the amazing gymnastics and the running.
Aww what a lucky ickle mouse DL. Shame the bird didn't get off with the same fate.
Well Triathlon done and dusted. Swim, I was the last out of my wave but they do organise it so the faster swimmers are in the early waves. Having said that I did it in 7.27 (10 seconds faster than last year). Out to the bike, huffed and puffed up the road and then whilst sailing down the hill I realised I hadn't started my Garmin! Racked the bike and thought my legs wouldn't carry me but I persevered. Walked a couple of hills but only so that cramp didn't set in (that's my excuse anyway). I believe I may have done it in around the same time as last year overall. Not bad since I have only been on the bike twice this year.
Thought it was going to bounce it down this morning when I was on my way to park run but nothing happened! Got a really good time, not a PB but the first time I have got sub 28 minutes for months and months - 27.39
Sorry Tubs, forgot about your peepers. Are you not allowed to go to the pool in goggles even? It's difficult to find exercise that won't affect one or the other of your current problems. It sounds like you have confidence problems as much as anything else. Is there a Breeze network near you? Graded rides that are women only and they could build your confidence in riding. Wish I lived nearer as I would come and encourage. Happy birthday to Mr Tubs!
Sorry to hear about the knee Sluggy. So no more knees ups for a while then?
Good on Mini 2, Yums. Any news on Tallulah? My boss bought a bike on the cycle to Work Scheme. He's only had it a few months when it was stolen from the train station where he left it overnight. They had cut through the mesh of the bike parking cubicle and then through his locks. Trouble is it was just off CCTV so he never got it back and had to carry on paying for it.
Right better go and clean my bike and prep my gear for tomorrow. (Also attempting to make Easter Eggs and Easter chocolates).
