After the Training Camp.....

After the training camp it was back home to a bank holiday weekend....trying to get back into Bournemouth with all the holiday traffic seemed to double my journey time...perhaps I should have  travelled by bike.!!

On the Saturday I went over to Lorenzo's coffee shop/delicatessen to lend a hand with some fundraising for our 10in10 ride...The customers at Lorenzo's have been really generous as can be seen if you visit our Team site .

On the Sunday I went to see my grandson Miles compete in his second mini triathlon.... 
He did one last year and for some strange reason he wanted to have another go at it this year...

Now to be honest triathlon is not something that I have ever felt the desire to do...probably because I would be pretty useless at it...all that splashing around in water...then having to ride my  bike and then finish it all with running makes me feel quite worn out just thinking about it....no I will stick with the riding the bike bit on it's own....but it was great to see Miles do his stuff and collect another medal for the family medal collection.!!


...another medal!
Unfortunately on the Monday, the roller coaster of my 2013 health problems took another bashing, as I went down with yet another bug which knocked me for six....one minute I was feeling fine and the next I was sick....aching limbs...and the feeling of no energy at all....and that is where I am right now....

I haven't ridden my bike since my ride at training camp last Thursday....the timing couldn't be much worse as on Sunday I am entered into the Jurassic Beast Sportive with others from the team...

I have got to say that since my treatment I seem more susceptible to picking up every bug that's around...a shot immune system or something like that....anyway I have now got three clear days to recover...prepare...and ride.
