I've been out-of-sorts for the last week so haven't replied to people's posts (so rude of me) but I've been dipping in and out of the site between watching Olympic events.
Unfortunately, I've not been able to go to the leisure centre for the past week and have gone off track on the diet front also so I am trying to claw my way back to the determined me of 2 weeks ago. Meds I took for sciatica didn't agree with me and I have had to ditch them so I'm in pain again but at least I'm awake (for now)!
Anyway, I have been inspired by the Olympic Games and have been considering what sport would suit me best - when the flexercise and aqua-fit become too easy of course. At the moment I am still concentrating on being able to raise my leg more than 6ins off the ground but I feel that it is important to look ahead. I am confident it is only a matter of time before they have a disabled pensioner's olympic and I want to be ready for it. (Not yet old enough but am in training).
I'm particularly encouraged by the women's triathlon - after all, I have already established that I can float and I believe that you never forget how to ride a bike so its just the running bit where I lack the skills. Would a mobility scooter be cheating do you think? I also quite like the outfits. Not quite the dayglo lycra I had in mind but perhaps a little more classy which would be more fitting for my pensioner status by the next Olympics.
I shall return to the leisure centre with renewed ambition tomorrow. Diet is, more or less, taken care of as the dog managed to get hold of the bread and another whole pot of olive spread yesterday and ate the lot in the 2 minutes that I was out of the room. That leaves me with lettuce and Quorn fillets. Nice.
