Still here, off on hols tomorrow morning.
Caro - well done on all the exercise. Hopefully it is helping you feel like you. Sorry about the hair. The buff looks great though and great your sis is coming over.
TT and others - hope the injuries clear up soon. So annoying. I have been injury prone for yours and there's always something looming. I also spend quite a lot of time doing work to be able to do the training that i want. I have actually started a 30 day running challenge http://www.kinetic-revolution.com/30daychallenge/welcome-to-the-challenge/ which is supposed to help runners. I have only done 3 days and will have to shelve it on hols as we have no internet connection but it looks good.
Ttid - hope the lovely Fay is still doing well and you are feeling ok.
CC - hope you had a nice weekend.
Re Royal parks ultra, I might think about it next year as i have to do a marathon or ultra as qualification for Comrades in 2016.
Camlo - hope hubby is ok.
RF - the Lake district is lovely. I've only been once, my mum took me when i was pregnant with no 1 and we stayed in a lovely but expensive hotel at the south end of the big lake (windermere?). Anyway, its stunning. Agree on the autumn comments. I do love the colours etc but the dark nights etc are just around the corner.
Oh and well done to the ironman. They are highly addictive and it's so easy to want to do another and another. I would love to do another and experience the razzmattazz (or however you spell it?!) of the race. I just have the time to put in on the bike. I am hoping the do the new 70.3 in Stafffordshire next year though.
Things are ok here. We've been trying to talk lots and also trying hard to be nice to each other. We are in that post big row stage where you are trying to be nice to each other, but at any moment it could all decend again. Let's see how this holiday goes. Thanks to everyone for all their really useful comments. They have been some good food for thought.
I did a sprint tri yesterday which was enjoyable. Slightly frustratingly average swim (15 mins), esp as i thought i was near the front of the group, and cycle (40 mins) but pleased with a sub 26 min 5k run. I ended up 6th but it was a very low key race. Fun though.
Flat still not sold and the house we want has basically been put back on the market (fair enough, it was decent of them to hold it off for a few weeks). I am refusing to get stressed by it all as I have done everything that i possibly can, so what will be, will be.
Holiday tomorrow morning. I am hoping for good weather - plllllleeeeassssseee!!
Any news from Sonya? Hope she is ok.
