Eek Caro!! Hope it passes quickly. Least you got off the tube!!
Not .very motivated at work this week. Nice weather and want to be doing stuff with the kids. So tempted to quit before the summer holidays must admit. We do need the money though. Might make a more concerted effort to look for another job!!
10k trot yesterday at 8mm. 19 miles biked tonight. First ride of the year. LOVED IT!!!
Going to swim tomorrow morning and run in the evening at the club. Whoop whoop!!
Still sad about London but I do have the summer and if all goes OK the ultra. CC and Lotte any thoughts on minimum training for thus? 44 miles on Coast path, 6th June!!
Ooo. That is annoying Caro. How many runners in the field? You would think you'd have seen her at least?
Awful day here too yesterday, kids didn't get much fresh air, but they seemed OK for it, lazy days are good sometimes and Grandad seemed to cope OK with the boys.
WFH today till 2pm which is going OK, they seem to be getting on OK. Then off to The Courts garden NT near Bradford on Avon this afternoon with the neighbour and her kids.
10k ran this morning at 8mm, couple of times it niggled but seemed OK. Now have delightful pink khaki patterned taping!!! Rocking the 'rock tape'!! If I do make it to the ultra in June, what's the bare minimum I can get away with training wise in distance CC and Lotte? It's 44 miles on coast path. Think I will go with both knees taped if I do make it!!
Anyhoo, that's 20 miles in total since last Weds, plus 2x3k swim sessions (with sprints to get the old heart rate up). Feeling hopeful?
Oh no Caro not what you needed. Yes we did eat late but was a lovely evening. I even had a pre-dinner cocktail!!
Boo to the no PB Caro. Hubbie out on his bike now and I'm popping out in a bit. Hubbie taking the boys to watch the duathlon at the race circuit this morning and get their hair cut. Then a spot of swimming this afternoon if madam's cough is OK.
Isla bikes do hold their value but at the time of purchasing for the twins we simply could not afford 2x20" bikes at £300 a pop. The boys 20" alu 7 gear bikes were in a sale and were £120 each, and that was a struggle at the time. They too can cycle anywhere and big hills but that might be more their fitness level than the gears. Hubbie just had a bonus so we think we can afford one for Sophie but will be the 14" as she is way too small for the 16" her legs are so short. Just bought new washing machine too as that died and with the vet bill for our poorly cat, big money spends this month. Eeek!
Thanks Vixo. We think the cnoc 16 will be too big for her. She is 98cm with short legs bless her, takes after me!!! We will re-measure her and work it out. Think we can afford one Isla bike, it was the factor of 2 with the boys and we are pretty pleased with their bikes. They get some pounding as the boys use them all the time. Hubbie very clued up on bikes being a triathlete and now tri coach.
Feeling rather chuffed with ourselves. Allotment just dug over and parsnips sown. We have got a much smaller plot but retained the asparagus bed so very pleased and its much more manageable.
Looking forward to seeing if I can run for an hour tomorrow. Fingers crossed!!
Off out for dinner tonight as Grandad here. Really looking forward to some time with hubbie, its been too long.
