Yippee to entering an IM, haircuts and some nice running CC.
Have made a list of Ironman events but dont think Bolton is for me RF as it is quite hilly. Think I am going to go for the one by Cirencester which is pancake flat! It is in August too so i would get a full year to prepare. Hope your night shifts go quick, i miss the early morning dawns when the world is waking up but I dont miss the sicky feeling that usually comes with it.
TTid - maybe the hairdressing is acting a bit like head reflexology stimulating something!? Hope baby hangs on until you are ready for them!
Caro - enjoy your break and then you can kick ass with the chemo, ice cap or not! If you dont fancy a cold hat then perhaps eating icecream will give you the same effect??
vixo - my 2 bicker too flat out, it is lovely to have them one at a time!
Felt fine yesterday but have taken an extra day rest (no chance to get out tonight anyway) and hopefully back to it tomorrow. Both boys had removed their hand socks and were sucking thumbs at bedtime. Pah!
yippee to fab summers, successful long runs and chippie dinners
tried a long run today but hadnt really eaten much before. Took camelbak of water and some fruit pastilles but it was hot and hilly. Hit a mile long hill at 11 miles and had to walk as too steep, took a good drink but legs cramped up when i tried to run again and my foot dropped too. Very painful spasms so called home and was picked up. Was dreaming of entering an ironman with RF until that point!
DB sorry you had to pull out, sounds like you knew it was necessary. Do you mean you couldnt eat when riding? or just couldnt eat enough full stop to fuel the rest of the race?
Hope everyone else is busy writing race reports. Only one decent bike (30m) and a 2k swim this week although i did ride 6 miles with the kids and had to haul youngest up from a ditch of nettles so that got my heart racing!
yippee to speedy tris and winning age cats, holidays, zonking tbags and mr hoggles new job
boo to impending tiredness caro, thumb sucking, house woes, changing days JT and worries about labourtime babysitting.
Have been away for a few days but our open air theatre treat was a washout as it tipped down. Boys were really pleased having given up the thumbs but i guess home brings familiarity as tom had taken his sockglove off to suck just now. He was sobbing when hubby woke him to tell him as he has been promised a raft of treats as rewards.
