The last time I did any training was on saturday. I’d worked from 9-6pm and then met Andy about 6:15 for a run along the coatal path. It was wet and horrible with a gale force cross wind knocking us almost off our feet. So in the weather conditions it wasn’t bad to finish the 6 miles in 48:15.
And that was it for training after that, sunday we went down to Liverpool for mothers day, and Monday Em went into hospital.
I had plans for monday and tuesday of sneaking a run in but it never happened, I spent monday texting and ringing people with updates and waiting by the phone for the hospital to ring, and then Tuesday was spent looking after Em. The only remotely tri relating thing I did was clean my bike.
But you know what although I feel sluggish today for not having trained, I feel great knowing that Em is alright – and it just shows that although we immerse ourselves in all this training, there ARE more important things than swimming, running and cycling.
