How do you feel?


I feel seriously amazing. How about you? What has this last week brought forth to you? Whatever it was I sure hope it made you smile and feel proud of yourself.

I had an amazing week of training and living. Training has kicked off with a bang - no place moreso than in the water. I don't feel as though I have lost any strength in there whatsoever since Port Mac IM. And might I say its so nice to be home. Im really looking forward to challenging myself in the water this off season and to see exactly what it is that I can put myself through. I feel like its important to keep setting goals for myself, to not let myself become complacent. But most of all to have fun in the process and to see what this "old duck" is capable of. I feel if I can still hold a 3min for my 200m Freestyle without pushing to hard after nearly 10 weeks off of training, then the skies the limit - and thats exciting.

Just yesterday I also proved to myself that I can hold a 30km/hr average speed on my bike too. Helps when you have a handsome man to ride with. Thanks Rob for a beautiful morning of riding. Lets do it again shall we? Nothing better than a beautiful brisk morning, getting on your bike, feeling the breeze against your face and feeling free and sharing the moment with someone you care about.

Now I have been challenged. I love challenges. Always have. But this challenge has a slight twist to it and I am going to share it all with you. I have been challenged by Rob to add certain HUGE words into my blog posts. One or two words per post but you will all be alerted to the word/s of the next week at the bottom of each post. Starting with:-


Think Im going to need me a full week of just thinking how exactly to use these words in this blog. I know there are 2 other words I have to use but Im sticking with these 2 for now - my brain hurts already.

Stay tuned for a chuckle. I could find a novel way of using these words like no-one has ever used them before.
