That was a tough half-marathon. I think mainly due to the lack of training since Sam's ankle injury, and also the fact that I wasn't well. It was an all-girl marathon (hence the Princess in the title!) but Princes were also allowed to support their Princesses by running with them - what really got on my nerves was the fact that a 'Prince' won the race.... IMO he should have been disqualified! What an asshole! He must have been really pleased with himself beating the girls (by a whole 2 minutes I might add!).... okay, I think I got that out of my system!

This Sunday our Princess half-marathon event takes place - haven't found a pink shirt I like yet!! We did our final training session tonight.... I managed 13miles on the bike, 3 on the X-trainer and 1.75 on the treadmill - not bad for an hour's work!! Hopefully all will go well for us and we'll be able to add another medal to the ceiling hook (must get a stronger hook!)
Oh, and I'll have the Garmin running so you can see the event mapped out :)
...it does however change where we workout on a Sunday!! Strong winds and cold (for Florida) rain took us to the Gym this morning, so I did 35mins on the bike (14miles), then the cross trainer (wasn't paying attention to the distance as I was watching Dollhouse on my iPod :) ), then topped it all off with a quick jog on the treadmill (3 miles in 35 mins).... of course as soon as we got home it stopped raining and the sun came out!!!
On a side note I've lost 7lb in belly-mass in the last 2 weeks - I can see my feet again!! ;)
We put in 7.2 miles this morning... just a gentle warm-up in readiness for the Princess Half-Marathon (2 weeks today). Sam's ankle seems to have held together so all is looking AOK :D

I had high hopes that I'd found a way of retrieving the Marathon details from the PC, but it's lost forever :( .... transfer from the Mac failed this morning, but 2 minutes later I had it working again - it's just so much easier to get things working with my Apple :P
My Garmin watch is scary !! We took the kids out for a little stroll around our neighborhood and I put the watch on to see how far it was (different to the normal 'lap' with a nice big hill for endurance) ..... well Garmin.com have just added Mac support for my watch (tried linking it to a PC and lost all the info!) and (obviously!) it quickly and easily installed and communicated...... THIS :O You can see my house from here!! You can also see that I forgot to turn it off before walking around the house for a bit !! That is a lot of detail.
