So my diet has not gone well in the last week. I have done great in that I have trained hard but having a very sociable and delightful daughter turn 8 has been hard - she scored no less than three birthday cakes, and I mean full size cakes and all the remainders have ended up in my fridge tempting me to the n'th degree, and unfortunately I have succumbed. The training has been going well with many 1 to 4 hour rides and 1 to 2 hour walk/jog/runs and 1 to 2 hour kayaks usually around the 5 Islands which is always fun. I am training for the coast to coast, https://www.trinidadcoast2coast.com/ which is a very tough multisport race that I have wanted to do for years. I will be doing it with Louise Smart, who will run while to do the riding and kayaking bits.
