Ouch

My muscles are all aching from my training yesterday!  I was a bit achey this morning and then some major abdominal pain kicked in mid-afternoon when I was sat quietly at my desk.  It was most inconvinient!  It’s now moving to my lower body.  Is it bad to have two proper ‘soak’ baths in a week?! I’m in a bit of a Spain phase at the moment so I is passing the even’ watching my favourite Spanish film – A

Time for bed already?

I can’t believe it’s almost 9.40pm!  I came on my computer over an hour ago and time seems to have flown by!  I had all of these grand plans to try and log all of my recent ergs, heart rate scores etc.  I’ve not done any of that…  I have ordered my kettlebells though – hurrah!  They should be delivered on Thursday assuming that they are processed tomorrow because I asked for next day delivery.  We shall see…

Fancy a cuppa?

I think my main vice in life is tea!  I love tea and in the back of my mind, especially at work, I am always planning when I will get my next cup.  Now, that does make it sound somewhat like an addiction.  However, I feel confident that is not the case, purely because I am very restrained and limit myself to a maximum of 4 cups a day.  That being said, perhaps I should try and do some kind

In the dawn…

Tomorrow morning is 8s head!  I can’t believe it’s a whole year since I last did it.  I’m not feeling the same nerves I did last year.  Last year I was almost sick with nerves; I remember I struggled to get to sleep and slept really badly.  This year the nerves are there, but I don’t feel nauseous.  Well, I do a little, but that’s mainly because I at quite a lot of dinner and then had a manic jump

Only two days to go!

After complaing last time about my fatigue from racing a Nottingham, I am now a mere two days away from the 2009 Women’s Eights Head of the River Race!  I did it last year although can’t remember much of it :o)  I’m not feeling as nervous as I thought i would at this point.  I know it’s going to be tough, but I worked hard to get in to the one crew we have this year.  In fact, the Friday
