I did 6 miles yesterday! And I'll be doing 8 tonight to get somewhere. To be honest I'm not too worried about the distance other than my backside being sore - it's flat, and I've always been pretty good at just keeping going once I've started, even if I get slower and slower... I used to think nothing of cycling 40 miles to see boyfriend for the weekend. I'd be worried about running, but somehow I just can't take cycling as seriously (not that I take running *that* seriously...)
Come and join us in July Pippi! You could even come and join me in March - that starts in Chester too and I'll be doing it on my own as my sister will be whizzing off speedily
Ha, I certainly won't be taking the same route Podds Absolutely not can't even train for a half marathon, let alone a half ironman and I loathe swimming! will carry the bags and eat the picnic
Mentor, er, some bloke with a rude name but can't remember what it was. Could be anyone! not meldy sadly, that would have been most amusing
Entries not open for race yet, can't even remember what it's called, just a little local one on the wirral, sister has persuaded my mum to do the 28 mile version - she's not really been on a bike for years so this will be quite an achievement so we'll all be cyclig with her (and giving her a shove if necessary)
Hands up which fiend brought weevils into my kitchen... hoping they were just in one lot of dried soup mix, but as it's been in an open jar for about 5 years I doubt it... oh well, I suppose I was always going to have to sort that cupboard out eventually, nice excise to pack up some empty jars...
Freezing here too, although I've had the heating off all afternoon as I've been in my decorating suit, which (after wearing it for 2 years) I've discovered is a disposable 'scene of crime' suit No wonder it's starting to wear through. Going to treat myself to some proper overalls I think
Did parkrun this morning, ambling round at the back with a friend. WEnt on my bike and planned to take the long way home, but we sat outside having a cuppa for too long and my hands (even in gloves) got so painfully cold that I had to cut my ride short and go home! Bloody pathetic!! But I knew I had a HUGE lengthy uphill coming up and really was NOT in the mood.
Probably not good that my sister just talked me into entering another bloody cycle race this afternoon
Talking of sister - she apparently now has some kind of Pirate mentor and is ordering pirate kit should I be concerned?!
Not stopping long as I'm on phone in bed and really should be asleep! But I was reading back and someone asked me a question which i wanted to answer before I forgot... but darn it, I've forgotten! Aarrgghh!
Oh! Sis is doing Outlaw half - will you be there Meldy?! We're camping (appare tly). I'm holding the coats
Oh, and I should confess I'm not cycling 3 miles uphill every day - 3 miles is the round trip and obviously half of that is straight down - barely turn my pedals on the way there... Did have to cycle into town today though so I've probably done all of 6 miles... Getting easier though!
Right, really must go to sleep, night waister pals ((((())))))
