is it possible to eat too much cake?


it's been a while. training is not going to plan. i'm too bored and fed up to describe the tedious details of not doing anything. hence the lack of blogging. seeing the physio tomorrow....at first i had big ideas of completing the whw in a 24 hours, then my goal changed to getting round in the allotted time, now i'm just hoping to get to the start and see what happens.

anyway....jane's been running. so have her sisters, cat and lizzy. ruth, cat's partner, had a really impressive run coming in 7th, having never raced before and only deciding to that morning. in fact all four did themselves proud, the running bug seems to be catching. if i keep hang 'round them maybe i'll come down with it too.

my legs might not be working but luckily my mouth is. which helped at my first university interview last week. surprisingly it went well and i've been offered a place. it's for my second choice, still got one interview to go. i guess things could be a lot worse but i think i might have reached my limit of chocolate cake!

Chocolate cake is the yin to trainings yang. Cant have one without the other.

Well done on the interview.

Emma said...

hmmm, can't comment on the cake, noone has made me one but i'm sure you can never get enough!

Well done on the interview, hope something equally as positive comes out of the physio Kate and that naughty knee gets better soon oh and well done the girls, excellent result!

cake is good. Is the highlander knee dependent? I will be there as long as my team mate's nasty cough clears up...

Fab news on the uni front.
Does this mean you have to start living like a student?

Poor show on the cake front though. :(

Charlie said...

today is the day - after five weeks, count em!, five weeks - off the bike when i get my lardy fundament back on it. cant be bothered with this rest malarkey.

if the othopaedic types want to mull over doing things to it, then i'll make sure they have something properly broken to look at!

good news on the uni front. hope you do better at physio than me!

Emma said...

Kate - BRILLIANT!! Best news I've had today :-) DO you do requests ;-)

lesleyh said...

Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Looking forward to seeing you at the start line :o) Oh and well done on the interview - whoop!!

ultra collie said...

great uni news
i reckon, without even knowing you, that if you keep cardio fit you'll be good to go at whw
the fling if you make it there will be a good gauge..keep on chomping away..lifes too short

kate said...

swiss- can't you 'pull some mri strings'? ;) hope the pedaling's going well, that bike looks to good to be gathering dust.

emma- yes! i get the sense that you're more of a savory snacker though?

lesleyh- start line and then the ceilidh- i fear you maybe too quick on the bits in between ;)

uc- thanks! that's what i hoping. i just don't seem to b suited to actually 'training' :(
