+3 with WW.

Working less

Posted: 30/07/2014 at 11:47

I have 4.5months left in my job and then I'm going to be free - no more getting up at 5am and working through my lunch time,  no more stress trying to accomplish the impossible to meet deadlines. We have savings in the bank and own two houses, plus I have a big life insurance policy that will be paid out in September.  Work - who needs it? Goodbye stress, hallo more training time, more time with our dogs, more sleep time, more time with my OH, please yourself when/where you travel. And one of my first pleasures will be to re-decorate the house we are living in.

we stayed in the Ibis Hotel Tour Eiffel, near the tower. Cheap and cheerful,  no frills, but the Ibis hotels are clean. Most only serve breakfast, so you can please yourself where you go to eat.

Made it home safely, I did get slightly wet but not enough to worry. I was more concerned about the heavy black clouds over my head, there were some claps of thunder and I saw 2 lightning streaks but luckily off to the north of me. Pedalled like mad to get home in one piece, my little leggies are complaining at me a bit for having attacked the uphills like a maniac!

Good to hear Mrs. JJ is doing better, hope she'll soon be back to normal.

Settled in front of the idiot box enjoying the fab athletics from the Games, John and I have been lapping up all the great events, the swimming was wonderful and I really got engrossed in the squash final with Englishmen going for gold and silver. Of course the highlights for us so far were the two triathlon wins - Alistair Brownlee has hinted at running a straight 10km, hope he does, I'd love to see what he could manage without swimming and cycling first - he did around 30mins on the run for his first gold medal of the Games.

Redhead - I started running at age 11 with my Dad and joined a club when I became 12, well, 65 minus 11 = 54! I'll be 65 a within a couple of days of JJ reaching his 74th.

Dilemma of the day - supposed to take my car in for service tonight and have brought my bike to cycle the 20km home from there, as John got called away today and won't be back until tomorrow night. Now the weathermen are predicting storms and heavy rain - what to do? In the past I have been known to leapfrog, using two cars - park one and drive the other further on, then run back for the first car, etc. Takes time but it gets the job done if there's  no other way.
