Well it's now only 3 weeks until we start our next little trip, well it's only half the length of the country so it must be a little one??!?
I've not really been on my bike much, the monsoon season is upon us & where I have cycled great distances in the rain, I just don't enjoy it anymore so am not doing it!!
I have been keeping up with my training & been doing spin, swim & running at the gym along with my Personal Training sessions with Debbie
Tuesday & Wednesday, I had a big test which was I had to undergo my annual training for public order & off to Gravesend I went. I got the 500m shield run out of the way, coming in last at 2:37 (you have 2:45 to get round). I did it so was pleased & then the fun & games started. It's often referred to as riot training for obvious reasons & a friend from the gym was horrified when I told her that they throw petrol bombs at you. The instructors try to make it as realistic as possible & I did go up in flames at one stage!!
A pretend riot!!!
It does get warm!!
Having got this out of the way for another year, I am now spending the next few weeks concentrating on my cycling. I am out tomorrow for a 30 miler & will go out again next week for at least a 50 miler
Sadly then the Olympics will be upon us & my home life will cease until the 17th September, which will give me a week to prepare for the London Tri-athlon.
Oh I nearly forgot I have entered the ballot for next years London Marathon!!
