For news this week, Paul was given a place on the RAB - Ride Across Britain. http://www.rideacrossbritain.com/ which takes place in Sept. Paul is equally thrilled and anxious, which is understandable. 9 days at 100+ miles a day would challenge anyone and Paul has some training ahead of him. We took the kidlets over to the track with us yesterday, they had their bikes, N slept and Paul and I ran. Well, I did my training 2 on 2 off and Paul ran. I mean properly ran, without losing pace, without stopping, for 30 mins. I was gobsmacked and so proud of him. The first time I have properly appreciated his fitness I think. I was so impressed!
Lochie got a special mention in the school assembly for his reading last Friday, and I was asked if I wanted to go in and watch. I totally welled up. He saw me as he came in and then spent the entire thing turning round, fidgetting and waving at me - total boy!
Its just over 9 weeks til my 47+ mile sportiv and Emma and I achieved 20 miles in a good time today, which has pleased me no end!
