4th for NZC I believe - hence me posting the good luck today, trying to catch her before she races.
Just short of 33 miles on the bike for me today. Not quite as warm as yesterday and a little windier but still good conditions. Was tempted to stay out a little longer but hoping for quite a big weekend so no point in pushing it today.
A'noon and still wet up here...
LMH: A good 33miler on the bike.
Afternoon all!Just popping in to wish NZC well for the weekend. Anyone else racing?We had a bank holiday on Wednesday (labour day). Beautiful weather so we did a long-ish bike tour in the forest (gotta love mountain bikes ). Then horrid day at work yesterday .Now absolutely ready for da weekend what: 5 slow mileswhy: can't do fast at the moment!last hard: 21/4last rest: yesterdaylyrics: no
Weather still nice here - possibly getting my arm twisted to convert that gentle pool swim into an OW swim ...
Chickadee:"why: can't do fast at the moment!" wonder why All the best tomorrow NZCGlad you got out for a ride LM.H
Still wet !
NZC: All the best for tomorrow.
Rest day today. Fingers crossed for a helpful wind tomorrow for the one-way 20 miler. A fortunate direction will make a big difference.
Just stopped in to wish NZC all the best. Hope it goes well.
For myself, have to report that I wimped out today. Late night last night (concert), stressful day at work yesterday, was simply hopelessly tired. Got through the day with the aid of three impromptu naps. Perhaps an unplanned rest day was needed. Won't be able to make it up over the weekend, as visiting friends and family. Oh well. A spot of training in Cornwall is on the books for next week.
Stickless, I think that napping is under-rated. You only took three because you felt too guilty to do the job properly with one decent kip of 40 winks. Am I right?
Thurday's early finish wasn't quite as early as hoped, but was early enough to get to the pool. Started off in the slow lane, but had to keep swimming around the 'burgs. Switched to the fast lane, fearing a mauling, but was persuaded to push on. Did another pb, for the mile, in 39:07. First time sub 40! (It's not a 20 minute mile, so I've no pretentions to excellence).
Today, working locally. For various reasons I woke at 06:05, with the wife tossing and rolling. Sod it. Went for a run. 6.6 miles. At one point in the dewy grass I got my feet caught in a hoop of wire and went flying. One minute the blue sky was up, the next it was just a vision of green. No significant harm done. This evening, I did manage to get out and boshed out 20+ miles on the bike. Choir practice in the evening too, so cycling there has become the new form and practice.
Decorating this weekend, or shall we call it home-work?
