doing the right thing… for a change!

So how’s that VT100 thing going?, I hear you all wondering…. not so bad, I guess. Well, the month of February was pretty good as I averaged 40 plus hard miles/week for a total of 173,5 miles for the month. However, the combination of last years sprained ankle, new ski boots, too much skiing… and maybe too much running in the snow gave me a spot of tendonitis in my right achilles…. nothing too radical just a little swelling and that glowing warmth that only tendonitis gives… So I did the right thing for a change and gat myself some physio before things got any worse and at this point everything seems to be back in order.

I’m sort of proud of myself for showing just a modicum of smarts, this time I actually went to the physio before the injury screams for attention and then regretting not getting it looked at sooner…. I intend to get to the start line uninjured and well trained (or even slightly under-trained) as against injured and over-trained.

As for the rest of my life at the moment…. Everything is pretty much as it should be, although work is a pain! Gomez is adorable, the children are well and K remains my rock!
