It has been a while since I posted a blog so there’s a bit to catch up on.

Firstly, the MH Survival of the Fittest a week or so ago was much harder than I thought it would be. The knee was a major problem and I dislocated the right shoulder 6 times throughout the event. And I got stuck in an bouncy castle…. embarrasing.

Good fun in retrospect though. I recommend the event for anyone who fancies something a little bit silly. I’ve since been to see Corina the Masseuse from Optimal Fitness in Edinburgh (link to the left). She had a real go at my ITB and my shoulder so both are feeling much better.

Training cycle last night ended up with a puncture so I had to walk home the final bit to avoid wrecking my wheel rim. Annoying.

All sorts of stuff ordered now. New helmet and knee braces are due to arrive this week. I just need some Kriega bits and gloves and the kit is all but done. The bike is with Crawford at CCA Designs getting some graphics made up – big Saltire and the Shepherd and Wedderburn logo. I’ve just approved the mock up and think it will look great.

I’m planning a day off training this evening then some swimming tomorrow morning before work.
