Mountain Running....

I'm off to Switzerland tomorrow for the European Masters Mountain Running Champs. I have 4 million things to do today which include a 2 hour spin on the bike (did an hour and half swimming already today!!) so I better get going. I'm almost afraid to go out on the bike today, it's so windy....

In two weeks it'll be the same again as I'm off to Germany for the European Mountain Running Champs. At least it's not Switzerland again....less temptation to buy chocolate....I reckon....

You have trained hard with a sub 3 marathon just behind you and tons of great cross training recently.

Stay on your feet, fuel, hydrate, and remember your mantra "Push!"

Enjoy your adventure!

Hi Eric, thanks for the encouragement. I assume you mean "off" my feet! Ha ha!

Just read your Aquathon comments and previous related posts. I am really impressed - to go from effectively zero to an ironman swim, that takes alot of guts. Good luck with it.

Bloody well done Aisling. Bet you're knackered. And I just popped in to update you on this year's Jungfrau (same as last year but with clouds blocking the view at the top)but your effort knocks that into a cocked hat.

Got chatting to a guy in an Ireland vest on the way round. Thought he might have heared of you but it turns out he was a roadie. Saw another guy in a IMRA vest but didn't manage to talk to him.

Well done again.

Two days after that, when the pain became severe, I saw my doctor. Three days after that I collpased in A&E and was hospitalised. They initially thought it was meninigitis so lots of alarm bells ringing then but they kept saying there was other symptoms not matching the meningitis diagnosis.
