Trial and error, 10.10

Today’s training was difficult. I came after a weekend spent at my parents house where I just ate and slept. So today in the morning I was a bit …hmmm. Not interested in going out. But I did.

But this one is more of a test, I am not having any objective. I need to test some gels, see how my body reacts to a half, hopefully my hip will not protest too much, and have fun. I thought a long time where to keep my training diary and than it struck me: I have a blog. I can keep it here. So here Read more
