Eek! My challenge is now less than two weeks away and the nerves are really beginning to settle in! I’m pretty confident I’ll complete the duathlon, but I’m terrified of the extra press-up challenge I just threw in for ‘fun’! What made me offer to do 100 extra press-ups after 15km of running and 40km of cycling?! What an idiot! :-) I’ll do my best with the press-ups but no promises I’ll hit 100!
I’ve recently been on holiday in hilly Wales (cycling) and then in Italy, where I went for a few runs in the hot mountains, so I can’t wait for the cooler weather and flatter terrain in London! Phew!
I’m close to hitting my donation target too, which has made all the training worthwhile. All my friends’ and family’s generosity will really kick in when I’m close to that finishing line. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported me, I promise I won’t let you down!
If anyone would like to boost my donations further, please do – visit my BetterNow page. Thank you one and all for your kind support – I am extremely grateful.
Here are a few pics of my cycling progress (I'm the short one!) – as you can see, there was plenty of reward for our efforts! No pics of running in Italy, sadly (or of my press-up 'progress'!), but I'll get some more for the next update!
