I am sure there is a bunch of gossip doing the rounds that I've given up the bike... I kinda like it, if that's the case, because it means all my secret training can remain just that!
Seriously, after an incredibly full on 2 or so months, I started this week back at work and back in the gym with Paulee and the guys. My two training buddies had me in tears with the quips and wise cracks that were flying! The best bit was three of us lying on our backs doing ab work, me with a male either side, both of whom were groaning with each rep. Nothing like lying between two blokes moaning away either side of you, with me telling them to quit their dramaqueening!
This Saturday will be my first track session back with Perko in as long, and I am expecting slow times, or fast times but over 100m only, and a few visits to pukesville. Gotta love track!!!
And in other news: I've been checking out heavy duty, snow-proof winter riding gear (boots, gloves etc) while the Aussie dollar is strong, and it's snowing in the northern hemisphere. It's difficult to get quality, truly cold-proof deepest winter horse riding gear in Australia (and I have Raynauds), and it's difficult to get cold weather gear at a reasonable price. So I have been shopping online, looking at pictures of amazing looking lined, waterproofed, snowproof boots in gorgeous snowcovered fields, while it is 35 humid degrees outside. Somehow, it feels just a little ironic...
