Not enough hours in the day!

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Well there is, but I am a bit of a telly addict so I waste alot of time sitting in front of the TV:) Although I do see that as good recovery:)

I seem to have done alot of hours taining recently so apologies to anyone who has waited a while for replys to their emails to me,  I am catching up just now:)

So the best thing on TV this week was Ronnie O’Sullivan’s 147 at the Snooker this week. He made a bit of a fuss about there not being any prize money for it and wasn’t going to pot the black but that just made it extra interesting. He really is a genius at snooker, it was great to watch, especially as he was missing everything in the frame before!

So just over 2weeks to IM Hawaii, I have my trip all planned. I will be going with my mum, I need someone to look after me!  Bella will be doing the TriStar222 in Sardinia the week before to earn some bread and then I will be on my way to Kona and try to earn some bread there too.  It is a seriously expensive trip so getting in the top 10 is my goal and I will be doing my best to do that. Training is going well,  I am tired as always:) 

 I plan to catch lots on the run. Unless I come of the bike 1st, in that case I guess I won’t be catching anyone:)

5th at Gerardmer XL triathlon.

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

So I finished in 5th position after a not so great swim, transition or bike, but I ran well to catch all but the front 4.

The race itself is one I can recommend to anyone wanting a challenging half distance race. It is very well organised and in a beautiful area of France.
The swim is in a nice clear fresh lake and the bike is all closed roads and some nice climbs each lap, the run is 3 laps around the lake which also has a few small climbs to test the legs. All in all its a nice race to do.

The awards party afterwoods was good and efficiently done. What I noticed though was the french athletes all seemed to be tall, dark, good tans and handsome, I am obviously not jealous ;) but  I did notice this, as did lots of the females there, not least our own TeamTBB girls who spent quite a while getting lots of pictures of and with Mr Sudrie and Polat, I actually had to take pictures of these two handsome devils so the girls could be in the picture! Nobody semed to want to be in a picture with Mat or I!!! Very dissapointing :)

So I am now back to Leysin and training away preparing for the next race which is IM Hawaii.

All the best to everone else who is also perpaing for Hawaii and see you there in 4weeks time.
