I'm Back!!

I've only been back a week but it feels at least a month!!! Doesn't take all that long to lose the 'holiday feeling'!
I'm planning of doing this bike ride in September- Conquer Cancer- it's 200km over 2 days. This has given me the much needed boot to get me riding in earnest! It's only fear that drives me but actually I'm enjoying the challenge very much ( at the moment)
I'm not a very good bike rider at all! I managed a trip to Warby on the bike trail which was 30km and that's about the longest I've done in one stretch for a very long time. At least I've got 8 months to go! My aim is to do this without injury- but I do tend to overdo things and then suffer the consequences. Running is off for the moment due to overdoing it while we were away- so the bike is looking good.

Sunny slow lane!

Up here again in the sunny slow lane of Port Douglas! They should make us honourary Queenslanders! The weather is 'perfect'! Warm and sunny- not too hot and not too humid ( although it really couldn't be too humid for me!)
My goal, while I'm here, is NOT to put on any weight. I always come back a kg or so heavier than when I started, despite the running and gymming that I do. Its back to apples and carrots and not toast and croissants!We'll see how that goes!
