Slight spanner in the works for this evening. Our horse has gone lame again, which means that Jo and the girls have to head up there before getting home. Its an extra 40 mile round trip added on to the hour drive home from collecting the girls. We will still go out but just a shame...I even had a haircut and treated myself to a hot/cold shave...which surprisingly included a head/shoulder massage. I now feel relaxed and more aero. Fingers crossed that horse is ok though as he's been lame all year and had been better the past few months to the point where we were considering riding him again (no jumping). He's not getting any younger either. Retirement beckons I fear!
Fundraising going well and nearly at target of £1000. Just on last push now.
WP - I love spicy food up to Jalfrezi with extra chilli level. Anything hotter like a vindaloo doesn't do it for me. We add spice to most things. I like the slight Russian roulette of a strange curry house and ordering Jalfrezi. The heat does vary a lot!
WP - I am going out for dinner with the family and in-laws this evening. Bonus of no cooking or washing up! Just need to decide on what to eat and if I should be good or not...and how far the excuse of carb loading can go!
So, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. But, I did have a major pre-race wibble last week and sort of went into hiding. Having said that I felt fine after my triathlon, my right calf began to tighten and I had a sharp pain in the point of my heel (like a stone in my shoe). I heeded the previous advice of you guys on here and decided not to risk making things worse. So, last week I didn't run at all, cycled once, went for a swim and stretched.
By the weekend all had subsided. Went for a 2 hour ride on Sunday in the driving rain and set a near PB on that route at a moderate effort. Tuesday I ran and set a PB for the HR zone I was in. Yesterday I swam and set an avg pace PB at an easier effort than I usually put in. Zero after-effects from any of this so I keep my fingers crossed for finishing in one piece on Saturday!! Amazing what some rest can do.
Simon - well done on PB Wabo - good luck OH - hope recovery is going well Dustin - good to see you back Ale - hope weather gets better, lovely down south today WP - chuck some cake my way, would you? Hope run was good LMH - hope that the legs behave and allow the LSR
