In training...


Now I was going to post some pic's of my sister and I in training from a few weeks ago - which was my first 10km bike ride in Matahiwi - where I sweated and huffed and puffed thinking - oh my god what am I doing on this stupid piece of equipment... though for some 'crazy' reason I don't seem to have saved the photo's to my computer --- oh I hear you sigh...

Though you will be pleased to hear that we did the ride again Sunday just been - and we were so busy gossiping that we reached the top of the hill and were ready to turn around and 'free-wheel' it back before we knew it - the biking on the indoor trainer in the mornings (its too dark for this scaredy cat to actually ride on the streets at that hour) is paying dividends - we had so much energy left that we 'raced' each other back - crickey the legs felt it then though - that penguin walk was very evident for a while afterwards...

So we've only got approx 4 weeks left before the RealWomen Duathlon - we are both focussing on the riding as the walk will be fine - am still thinking very postive thoughts that I AM going to win a bike in a spot prize :)

I also wanted to say ...





I have really appreciated receiving your emails, and kind words...
Promise more quilty pics in days to come.
Hugs

Congrats on the training - you must be working really hard to be able to ride up a hill without even noticing!!!
Thanks for inviting me to be a member of your blog :)

Gosh, you and sis should be so proud of yourselves. I'll cheer you on from down here in the lounge chair if you don't mind!
You will do it no worries Julz.
