Heading away this week I was not sure how I was going to fit everything in not only was there the children to fit things around but also importantly needed to fit things around tides for fishing and diving; priorities changed a bit this week, my queen of the fish title was up for grabs again.
I think I have felt every emotion since my last post.
Determined to beat my 870 hill metres from last hill mission
Exhausted from being up very early with a child
Pleased, with myself when I still went for my ride, lots of talking myself into it before it actually got done, but still did it
Happy/Smug, still Queen of the fish
Joy/Love, when Miss Emily (my oldest) greeted me on my return from my ride with a very excited and happy “your back”
Disappointed, when I realized that Amberley is not just round the next bend as I hadn’t yet past the Hamner turn off 🙁
Ecstatic, 977 metres on my last hill mission, didn’t think I would have beaten the 870, will break 1000 next time
I feel like it has been a merry go round of a week with the different time constraints to juggle, although I have enjoyed riding on different terrain in a different area it was like a wee holiday in itself within the training. But with the different challenges it brings, I question my sanity as we are now considering heading away again (dependent on a sick child recovering), although different hills for another hill mission…..1000 here I come.
