Update and Training

Tuesday I went training with two friends and we did hills (lots of undulations), total ride was 90km and my thighs were in agony yesterday like I had been doing heaps of squats......Even today I gave the fast ride a miss this morning and will do an 80km ride on some smaller undulations and stuff on my own. Basically I cant sit down without putting my hand down first to support myself as my thighs are in PAIN!. So I am here in my knicks ready to go and will be on the bike as soon as my breaky goes down.

AND the best news is ...no work hasnt rung to say I can come back tomorrow, but I have enrolled in a photography course which starts next Monday and I got my new computer which I havent connected yet. The photography course will be great, learning to use Photoshop and do some really creative stuff. These pics are some of the photos I had in my portfolio to apply to get into this course.  I didnt have a lot as I have only had the camera for three months so I have been on a steep learning curve.

But just being motivated by something has helped my moods, and before you think I am overdoing it, I am basically doing this photography course and a couple of nutrition subjects and will either end up back at work and have to stop this course, or I will have to get another job and therefore will have to reassess. The photo course is only one and a half days a week and it is local. So I have to get my new computer set up on the weekend (but I might leave it until next week, when I will have my new internet pack. Does anyone have any hints on setting up Wi Fi and the risks with a wireless network? I have to read a bit about that before I get into it all.


This is a cool pic of a girl in our club who is riding really well. Hopefully she will continue to keep getting stronger too.

Anyway feeling happier and it is a really nice day outside so a good day for a ride, I will do the first 60 and then reassess, my legs might have had enough by then......seriously my thighs are killing today, but once I warm up they might improve.

Really nice pictures....

I hope the tired muscles settle down, perhaps a nice recovery ride is what's needed!

Nice pictures!

I love wifi. We have an airport from Apple. It's made it sooo nice. We have a password, and haven't had any problems.

Have fun at the class, and I hope those muscles settle down. Has to have been a mean ride!

Like your pictures - sounds like you had a good workout!

Do you think you will get back to work soon?

Sounds like a great idea, something to get you out everyday. You are also aware of overdoing things so you are being sensible!

I like the sore legs feeling!

Those are some great pictures. WiFi is great and not that big of a deal to set up. Once you have it set up you can roam around the house connected to the internet anywhere. I love the freedom. Good luck in your class.
