Today's race was the 300m straight line sprint. I got 4th in the qualifying round and so will race later this evening. Quietly I'd sort hoped to get 5th so as to have a longer rest..but 'twas not to be..however.....mustn't grumble. I'm up against a tough looking Czech chick and she's got no need to resort to mind games...I'm already shaking in my shoes! More later after the finals.
UPDATE: got 3rd! and I'm feeling pretty smug! Only problem is I'll have to dress up a little for the podium!!!!!;-)))
I am a lucky lucky person. This morning, mooching around town, I wandered into a sports shop..as you do...and found some of my favourite Craft bib knicks. Checking them out I noted that of the 3 in my size, 2 had the inferior chamois and 1 didn't. I then checked the price and saw that they were all the same price..whoops...bit of a mistake there. Anyhow, the price was VERY favourable...89 euros instead of approx $A200, so I bought the one good pair and that's when I discovered there was a 20% discount...end of season sales......lucky, lucky, lucky...well, ok so they are Radioshank branded, but at that price....!
As usual I'm posting parcels off to myself with all the clothes I no longer want/need with me, maps, books, souvenirs, etc etc. It's much cheaper than excess baggage and it's fun getting parcels in a couple of month's time..sorta extends the holiday a bit
