Good luck!

Off to dog club in a mo, Monday is our AGM so I as auditor have to review the books today prior to reporting on our finances at the meeting. Just been talking about the intelligence of dogs. John and I of course use English at home and  I speak only German at the club. Charlie and Nemo have no problem understanding whichever language I am using. A nearby French dog handler uses of course only French with his dog, so obviously they are just as capable as us of learning different languages! No problem with dog trials, the rules allow foreign competitors to use commands in their own language. I've seen sheepdog trials where a man competing in the pairs event used English to command one collie and Welsh for the other the two dogs only reacted to commands in the one language they were trained in. Brilliant!

Good luck indeed, I'm sure you will both do very well. John has had good results with anti-cramp tablets from Decathlon, he had a spell of getting leg cramps while swimming but the tablets seem to work well.

Felt a bit sore from yesterday's gym class when I got up this morning so I went to the pool for an early swim - did 2000m and am now feeling much better. John has been suffering from a really bad cold while up in Belgium, he's coming home today so I made an executive decision that we are not going to have our usual Friday evening fish, he needs some hot chili and rice.

Mmm...delicious!

Quick and easy Mexican dinner.

1 packet of Mexican tortillas, 1 packet of frozen spinach, 1 jar of spicy hot Taco sauce, grated cheese.

Microwave the frozen spinach.

Heat the tortillas.

Spread the warm tortillas with spicey taco sauce and cooked spinach. Roll up and place in a greased oven dish. Spread more taco sauce over the outside of the tortillas and sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake in the oven. Quick, easy and delicious.

 I don't like spinach so this is a way to get it down me!

Redhead posted her pic with the lovely medal on Facebook. I'm on Facebook to keep in contact with people I never or rarely see. One of John's brothers lives in the south of France and one is in Japan. We have friends in California, and my best friend lives in Utah, also have ex-workmates in the States, and my one-time flatmate in Holland. Facebook is the easy way to keep in touch.

90 mins cycling today.

If you haven't been doing hills then yes, get out there. Missing  cutoff is no fun, some of us have experienced that and it hurts a lot mre than riding the hills!

I hate hill reps - but they are a necessary evil.

Early bird swim today, 3200m in under 2 hrs, pleased with that, shows I'm on track for the Cologne 6km - until mid March the long swim target is still 3000m each week.

Where's Red got to wth her race report? Hope she's ok.

How did Red get on in her race?

No, Charlie doesn't have worms, his body simply just doesn't have the digestive enzymes necessary to properly digest his food. The powder I get from the vet replaces the enzymes his system doesn't make.  I periodically get de-worming tablets for the dogs but I can honestly say non of our dogs have ever had worm problems. Our vet ( who is female by the way) reminds me once a quarter.

Today we have had sleety snow all morning but now it has turned to rain. Poor John is on his way up to Belgium to work, coming back on Friday. The radio is reporting bad road conditions up north so I know it will take him longer than usual to reach his hotel. I was going to run but honestly, it's so nasty out there I'm going to wimp out and ride my indoor bike instead! Tomorrow will be an early morning long swim - the pool opens at 6:45am.
