No squash this week due to Sunday’s impending Half Ironman. Getting maimed tonight on the squash court wouldn’t be helpful. Instead I have a miserable last few days of tapering and carbo loading to look forward to.
I dedicate today to the latter. First we go to the pub at lunchtime for a small snack. High carb of course. I consider going pre-race AF but on reflection I think the advantages of beer outweigh the disadvantages.
In the evening we head over to Leamington to visit Son as it’s his birthday. We take my Mum and Dad over to visit. We go to our usual, the White Horse. The last time we were there someone had decked the horse and it was lying on the floor prone. Now it’s no longer there at all, gone for repairs I hope.
