I took part in a Team Triathlon in June as the cyclist! The conditions were perfect, no rain, not too hot. Great fun! I discovered I'm prepared to push myself so much more when I know my team mates are waiting for me. It was hard, really hard - mostly uphill for 7 of the 13 miles - I ended up making up a little mantra to myself, which sorry it's so silly I can't share here!! It worked though :-) The route is used for the Ironman and has been used in both Commonwealth & Olympic Games. An area of outstanding beauty too which was nice....
Got me a medal too!
Anyone else cycle/do triathlons? What advice would you give? Do you have a mantra?
Life is crazy, does it ever slow down? I wonder do I do it to myself? Should I just stop?
What would happen if I did? Would everything fall apart in slow motion?
I have felt so tired this last week. I had a lovely weekend in Bristol with a friend - Cleveden - it was beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but have been playing catch-up ever since - mainly sleep!!!!
This weekend I have pottered and done little things I have wanted to do for a while.
I went to have some photo's printed, buy frames and a plant pot and some gifts for a
couple of friends who have recently had baby girl's!
I have numerous jobs to do, said as I look out at my overgrown jungle, but have made a nice cuppa and sat myself here awhile, having caught up with my favourite blogs too ;-)
Three pictures from the Western Wedding now framed!
(Frame was a pound from Oxfam!)
Tour de Yorkshire now framed :-) Mr.L happy...
Two gifts for friends made & ticked off the list!
Heart maps, one Slovakia, one France. Done & done!
Baby girl presents wrapped!
A gift of heather from a friend now in it's pot!
I love these buckets, cheap and look better with age!
Ok, so I treated myself...but I've liked this for ages. Never bought from JCrew before
but it seems I'm a large - luckily I reordered and large is on the way!!
Had a night out to celebrate two girls from Running Club completing the
