Yep. Stiiiiiiiill injured.
(Punk IPA and Radical Road are good ways of dealing with injury…)
Remember that time I gave advice on how to cope with injury? Yeah do as I say don’t do as I do (I have added a couple kgs from comfort eating (“ahhh my world is ending. i will never run again. oh look, chocolate”))
BUT my best friends are now my ice pack and hot water bottle, I have channeled my spare time to more biking and wedding planning, AND I have forced Kyle on the bike with me and can even
smash him pip him to the top by a couple secs now!
It sucks that the weather has been glorious (for Aberdeen) and I can’t get out at lunchtimes, BUT lighter nights mean some cycling/walking outside so that keeps my vitamin D up a little.

I have taken out these frustration on some nearby hills! Last weekend, I did some Suie hill reps after our first meeting with our humanist (realised we needed one of those otherwise it is just a big party!), then the following day redeemed myself by cycling the entire way up the Lecht rather than stopping on the first part after my granny gear failed on me last time!
When I checked strava, I saw Noodles had beaten me up by 5 secs and I was GUTTED!
(he blamed using a TT bike…clearly using every excuse in the book #chicked)
Other fun news was that Speedhub sent me an aero suit to try (tri?)…!!
(“Kyle this is so cool – take a pic take a pic!” “Shouldn’t you sort your hair and put makeup on 1st? You don’t want them to drop you already…” …should have maybe listened to him for once! 😉 and yes my leg is taped there too)
So I’ve not ran at all and Healing Hands Helen (she fixed me after the accident) has banned me for a while, but I really hope I can come back soon! I hate to love people running so amazingly well at the moment and I can’t join in the fun!
In other news, I found an action shot from Mum’s 1st 5km!
(she’s in the zone!)
And I also found a pic from our Christmas dance
(I am a lion)
Another random finding was Kyle finding this on Facebook:
(oh dear to having ZERO transition skills a year ago! JK that was our first date – looking forward to our rematch! #novice)
My sister loved her bday present
(she is now a mermaid)
Her birthday is 2 days after mine, so I guess it’s a bit like Christmas with the giving and receiving of gifts for us!
For my birthday KB and I went to Aviemore! It was beautiful and we had the best time!
(oh yes Kyle now has Instagram – add him!!)
Why was it so amazing you ask?
BECAUSE WE WERE ALSO CELEBRATING KYLE MAKING THE GB TEAM FOR THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!!!!
For those of you who don’t know, his Haworth Hobble really paid off!! I couldn’t have been more proud! It is his lifetime goal to make a legit Great Britain team and wear a GB vest to compete on a world level! I KNEW the ultra distance would suit him!
So he is off to Italy in June 😀 I’ll
force him ask him nicely to do a post about his training and any team updates!
