Ms Armitstead, Ms Simmonds and Ms Obsessed



A parkrun today, of course, as one of us is obsessed. The question is which one...

In the end the first one off the wishlist tumbles, Gedling. This is just for Ms Obsessed, of course, as I’m still bloody tapering. It’s easily the hilliest parkrun we’ve seen yet, well worth a go and only one loop too, which is a rarity.

I then drop L off at Pilates while I meet the tree man who finishes off the job. We now have room for a full set of agility equipment. No excuse now MD.

Cycling's World Championship Road Races are this weekend from Richmond, USA. It’s the women’s road race today and Lizzie Armitstead wins an enthralling race for GB.


Everyone is also intrigued by the new girl on the GB bike, HayleySimmonds. As current GB Time Trial Champion she rode the Time Trial in the week and today makes her d├ębut in the road race.


She’s a former rower, who then quit rowing, put on a ton of weight, then took up cycling and shed it all. A huge 45kg worth. As I keep telling L, cycling’s the way to go for everything, whether its weight you want to lose or orgasms you wish to gain.
