Faster Higher Stronger Smarter

It's been a long time between posts. It's not like nothing's been happening because it has, so much so that I've seriously had no time to even think about posting. There was a brief shot on location in Hollywood, some political lobbying in Washington DC and a little bit of altitude training in between. Amélie has started running around, and saying words and doing things that make as stand in awe, or just laugh, a lot. Our house is undergoing renovations, so we are living in a construction zone, but the progress is awesome and I'm looking forward to the finished product.

I'm training as hard as ever, actually possibly harder, to the point of trying to manage the pain as much as the training. Training smarter. But the pain gets less and less, and the fun more and more. I found myself at the pool after training the other day surrounded by all manner of beauty in the form of elite athletes and surf life savers (the iconic ones). In the showers.
Fun indeed.

And the fun promises to continue. Racing, training and a great summer ahead.
Drinks on the deck set to be a new and improved regular event as the summer heads on in.
I can feel it now. I can feel it in my legs now too - a huge inter-city cycle and later run today mean it's time for a nice, long rest.
Keep well until next time.

Hey it's been ages since you've updated about Amelie! I just think that every stage of a child's life brings with it so many awesome experiences. I'm currently working on a paediatric ward and it's making me as clucky as a hen.

And good luck with your training mate. It's been inspiring hearing of your progress.

Thanks Tim.
It's nice to hear from you.
I've not updated on Amélie for a while it's true. I kinda have this protective thing happening, trying to keep her out of the limelight. But she sure does shine. I'll make an effort to post more on her soon.
What's your work by the way Tim? Medical nursing or other?
