30 September 2005
We had a lovely time away. We rode our bikes while we were there. I managed some hills but I am still not good on hills and had to walk and push the bike if it was too steep. That really annoys me. We walked 17km round trip into the town one day. I really enjoyed that.
These were the naughty things I did:
Ate a pastie
Drank red wine, Baileys, Omni and Chardonnay! (not all at once)
Ate greasy chips and fish (suffered all night for that)
Ate too much brie cheese
Didn't drink enough water
Didn't eat enough vegies. (Not a very healthy shopping environment where we were. I don't think many people like nice fruit or vegies as most of it was old and wilted!).
These were the good things I did:
Rode my bike
Read "Ultra Marathon Man" by Dean Karnazes. (I had bought this book for DH for his birthday and when he finished reading it I decided to have a look. It was a great book and Dean is an amazing man. He runs hundreds of miles, night and day. Pushes himself and his body beyond all limits. He says he runs with his heart and doesn't let his body stop him from running as far as he wants to. He also raises a lot of money for charities.)
The result of all the above was a gain of 700g! DH is on holidays for another week so I will concentrate on getting rid of that after next week. Glad to be home and bought lots of nice fresh fruit and vegies and healthy snacks.
We will do some day trips next week, including a trip to Burnie to pick up our transponders for the Burnie 10. We have deciced not to stay there the night before and we won't have to go as early if we pick them up before race day.
Looking forward to catching up with all your news later tonight.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
