Back home now and feeling cold! I had such a great time in Fuerteventura and it has enabled me to get a good block of training in when in the UK it has been too icy to go out on some days. After Dan left I had 2 weeks left and I started to feel ready to come home. Thank you to Jane who has been a great help to me whilst out there and a good friend - hopefully I will be back next year!! I now have London Marathon to look forward to (and wearing my Asics DS which coincidentally are in my favourite colour)!!! 17 days to go........

And for all those that worry that I haven't been eating enough...... and yes I did eat all of it!

2 weeks left

A group of 40 from my tri club came out for a week at the end of Feb along with Dan coming out for 2 weeks. Was great to be amongst lots of people as I had been doing all of my training on my own. Apart from swimming which I benefit from swimming in a group, I do mostly prefer to train on my own but it was nice to see and talk to friends and of course to see Dan for 2 weeks!

It also meant that I got to spend nearly 2 weeks at the Play Itas hotel which was great. Also a bonus was that they messed our booking up and we had to be moved from the apart hotel into the hotel and as compensation got breakfast and dinner included for free!! Food was great - lots of it too!

Dan also surprised me - a time trial bike!! After asking around to see if a shop or manufacturer would loan me one for the season Planet X said they could do one at an amazing price. I had said I'd think about it but unbeknown to me Dan had been negotiating with them. Thank you Dan and Planet X - I love it!! It needs some adjusting (like the tri bars chopping down) and I will have to customise it with some turquoise!
