Glad the Garmin seems OK, Lily. Have a great holiday.
No running for me today. After spending yesterday at the dentist with boy 3 (2 more teeth removed to give space for new ones), spent tonight in minor injuries as boy 1 had hurt his wrist playing goalie. He did it at 1.30 but didn't come home till 5. Turns out it's fractured so cast and sling now on. Not sure how he'll cope with the heat in Spain if he can't go in the water. OH has been at Lords all evening (again), so completely oblivious to everything.
Work is very busy as it always is pre holiday and always feels worse when I haven't run. But a rest day is probably a good idea as my right achilles is feeling a bit tender. Lee - I reckon Shades is right re resting your achilles until Saturday. How is it feeling now?
Molly - IM Austria sounds fab. What an achievement that will be. I'm interested to know how good your swimming was when you started triathlons. Would love to do one but I only do breast stroke nowadays and am not speedy.I love the idea of triathlons for kids as it doesn't limit them to one sport. Hopefully he will be inspired having watched the action today on TV. Hope the tempo went well.
Shades, I agree re the heat, it makes running such an effort. I can see why Iain went for a ride instead. It was 26 degrees at 8pm tonight coming back from the hospital!
