friday - did manage to get out but toilet trouble led me to going home early. bit too close to tea i think. note to self tea after running, not before!
pleased though i broke the duck and was starting to get into my stride.
failed to get out on bike. nil points for me. should have gone sunday. but reading a recent self help book suggests removing the phrase "should have" completely. instead rephrase. I chose not to go cycling and instead had a family day out.
swimming monday. ten out of ten for me. not sure whats more nerve-racking. a swim session with a full pool or a swim session where the pool is empty. well me and one other lady. really pleased with my swimming as i seemed to have remembered most of thursdays instruction. Swum the required 16 lengths for the next event, and put another 10 lengths on top of that. progress. …… huge progress.
ok so i'm still slow. the lady next to me doing breastroke with head above water was more or less the same speed as me. BUT taking away the positives i felt i was swimming much better etc and I've done the distance and i feel that some speed can be added in the next few weeks.
and in other stuff.
survived the school shoe shopping experience - thats an ironman in itself!
i did almost see red mist when the lady starts talking low stock in the smaller shoe sizes.(having waiting 30mins!) luckily for all shoes acceptable to my 7yr old did fit which cost a fortune and we exited promptly after paying. a good test of mental endurance!
