I dont really have any excuses as to why I have been so absent other than my new SLR digital camera which I love and so in two weeks and 1740 photos later, I spend a lot of time on the computer just playing (and deleting pics). I have also kept up my training for the time trial in Jan and that has been going well. I mean here we are Christmas Eve and at 4pm I was out doing motorpacing behind Shane driving my car (I could have been doing family and friend stuff...but no...must keep to the program). I have had a couple of days early in the week where I found the efforts were just too hard as my legs were dead....but overall going well and I just hope that my6 focus on cadence hasnt cost me too much strength as the course profile
On top of all of this it looks like I wont be going back on road as a paramedic in a long drawn out battle with the ambulance service at the moment. It is a long story and I had a meeting in Melbourne on Tuesday about it. This is not the palce to write all about it as there were some positives, but I still cry when I think about it all as it has been a very difficult few months for me....havent said much about it before as no decisions had been made, but now my career is at a crossroad (again).....I just try to stay focussed and happy and think of all of the good things...I have also registered a business for photography (I am a beginner and have loads to learn), but actionpactpix is the name of the business and you can see the beginnings at http://www.actionpactpix.com/
So that is my news at the moment here........Bike training has been consistent and my racing has been a bit unpredictable as I am doing a lot of steady state and that is not ideal when people attack bunches in races, but hopefully I will race the best time trial ever on January 6th.
Thank you to everyone who has read my blog, sorry I have been around less lately, I have read a few entries from time to time, but overall have spent computer time with photos. I hope you all have an awesome Christmas and New Years, I have found you all to be very inspiring and at times, even though I havent met you, you all make me smile and just help to cement that faith in friendship. (Must be having a deep and inspired moment.......but I do mean it........) Will try to update my training more in the next two weeks before the big time trial and keep up to date with your lives as well.....
