Home Sweet Home!

I finally got home for a well overdue long weekend, even if it was a very busy one. The main reason for my visit was to come home and see Deirdre and Martina (Physio and Strength and conditioning) to let them see how my leg was coming on, and they both seem really pleased with my progress and recovery. Have finally started putting a bit of impact through my leg and I am now able to start building things up slowly and if all things go to plan will be fit and ready for a very exciting season ahead. Finally things are starting to fall into place.

It was also great to get home and see my family, just to keep my mum sweet – “ It was brilliant to come home to my mummy!” (this should get me some brownie points;) )It was also great to help my dad out who just got a full hip replacement only 4weeks ago ( lets hope I don’t have his hips – that’s all I would need) He was a great co-pilot on the way up and down to Dublin all weekend, even if It was like having a driving instructor beside me.

Although I was at home I managed to get some solid consistent training in, some fantastic cycles with the guys from Banbridge Cycling Club. I really do love coming home and cycling especially when we had some decent dry weather for once.

Swimming for once was all done by myself in public sessions which was a bit different but really good I quite like training by myself every so often. Plus when I throw in the strength and conditioning with Martina I was a really solid couple of days of training in a different environment which helped to mix things up a bit.

Talking about different training environments I am back off to Spain next Monday for two weeks, (one week in Benidorm / one week in Aguilas) with the Triathlon Scotland Squad which should be a good race prep camp. Really looking forward to it!

Just when I thought everything was going to plan and falling into place, I found out that my proposed Bike sponsor for this season pulled out on me - not that they were planning on telling me it took a lot of chasing up on my part. They had strung me along for months – told me it was confirmed and even asked me what all I wanted and now tell me that they can’t give me anything.

So please if there is anyone out there that wants to sponsor me a Bike etc for this season it would be greatly appreciated if you could get in contact with me!

I will help give as much publicity etc as physically possible; it could be rather beneficial to anyone interested.
