Yuck to bugs....

kinsey - no point stressing about getting ready for school, it will just happen when he is ready. 

Tt - i love 2 strikes rule, however i hate throwing food out so either let them have it after i have said no or eat it myself..... Not good. 

Did my 5 (and a half) hour bike ride this morning and covered over 70 hilly miles then quick shoe change and ran 4 in 40mins which would be fab if i could hit that running pace on race day. Found a lamb stuck in a branch so stopped to help but its leg was totally broken so when it was free it was walking on 3 legs with the 4th just dangling... i could see a farm across the road so put a hill sprint in too.

Nightmare.... We are just about of of the random tantrum stage but every now and again Archie will still lose it and we almost have to jump out of the way! Why dont restaurants know that coloured plates are a certain cause of arguements! 

Hope results are ok Nessie

Just realised next week is half term but naughty mummy has not booked football and not got childcare for Thurs or fri.....oops.

How did it go Nessie?

Yep we are very active at the moment - running festival yesterday so boys and niece did 3k (she was 3rd) and i did the half marathon. Swim for me and football for boys today, running club for me and swim for boys Tues, athletics for us all Weds, running club thursday..... Etc. 

Need to lose a few pounds but i get sooooo hungry and need to balance fuelling for training with sensible cutting back... Not easy.

A friend has gallstones and when she has an attack it literally makes her collapse and the pain is awful but then it passes just as quick and she carries on. 

Hate reading about poor gp surgeries, ours is fab in comparison.

Up with the larks today and went to junior duathlon in Llanelli. Tom managed really well and finished strongly, niece struggled in an amazing field but did a fantastic time for her 1st go. 

Hope the ultra, moon walk and loch tri -ers are going well.

I think i have only ever run one 10k, have a choice on sunday to do a 10k or a half mara (both on trail and includes entry to the welsh spring fair with nice stalls...).  Totally drained so not deciding until the end of the week! 

I was convinced Archie had worms yesterday as i could see a little white thread as he was waving his butt at me but then realised it was loo paper.... Thanks for that! 

TT - are you winning the weight battle? I know it worries you even though you look fab regardless. I have not lost a single pound with all my training. 

Kinsey - so are we closer to tbird or monkey? If you fancied some cross country there is a summer league starting soonish with a few races south of hfd. Are you in a club yet? 

Cotswold 226 - 2015

That means only 5 or 6 weeks left of building before we can taper.... Yipppppeeee

Still struggling to fuel enough but not keen to try gels, must make more effort to pack the bento box with easy grab mouthfuls. 

Anyone else struggling to get into open water? Only a quick dip so far for me.

Busy day - biked 66 miles in about 4hr30. Quick shoe change and a glass of milk followed by 3 mile run which felt slow but ok. Watching BGT with kids who are hooting with laughter at the trampoline guy and DJ John...

BP - i am doing cotswold 226 in July so have about 6 weeks left to build then will be tapering..... Fitting sessions in is very hard but i am not planning on ever doing another so want to give it my best effort (also terrified of not completing so have to make sure i do enough). How old are your boys?

Nooooooooo tom woke feeling sick but being the dedicated mum i am i 'encouraged' him to school to sit his tests...... Had a call at 10:30 that he was pale and crying..... Whoops! At least i got a load of admin done as he spent the day watching TV and i really didnt hear a peep all day! 

Kinsey - we must meet up - keep looking at Hereford events!

Ggrrr kinsey, i know we all moan about spreading germs but when it is clearly a one off it is soooooo annoying.

just had to change Archie's bed as his cath had come out of his belly button and leaked, not an easy task to recath too when he is asleep and wants to lie on his front!

Now do i stay up and watch results until my eyes bleed or get some kip and get up early......
