Today we go on a Sands Beach Resort outing to the small Island of La Graciosa, just off the coast of Lanzarote. I have always wanted to visit the small beautiful island. We always see the magnificent view of it whenever we ride up to Mirador del Rio, which is on the Ironman bike course at the far north of the island.
We are going to do a 31km trail run race, I was really looking forward to running but I have managed to pick up a sinus infection and so will just be watching, Ritchie also has a cold so he will also watch with Kat Charlie and me. Bella and Eimear will run so we will cheer them on along with all the other runners we are travelling with from Sands Beach.
It is great to be back to the warmth and sunshine of Lanzarote and the great resort of Sands Beach. We had a great time visiting family in London and then in Scotland, but it was very cold and snowy, however it meant that we could spend lots of time with family. Charlie had a lovely time playing with Sonny the dog and his cousins Leo and Josie.
Burns night with the family in Aberdeenshire. Tatties neeps and hagis for dinner then entertainment from all, great fun:)
But now we are back to sands beach and getting going again with the training. I feel quite fat and unfit, but I think I am probably not. We have a really good little group here at sands beach with the TEam TBB UK and Germany athletes all here training hard.
Next race maybe a in a good while. The focus is on some good training for now.
