End of the week...

TGIF!!!! It's been another tough week with a few irritations... Road Rage etc!!! If I wasn't on a pill for my blood pressure (I swear I take a pill for EVERYTHING), I'd have had a heart attack, I'm sure. Well obviously not really but I felt like it!

I also managed to hurt my foot while gymming :-( Nothing serious, just pulled a muscle in the ball of my foot (from walking at some ungodly speed on the treamill training for the 3km race walk)... so yesterday at gym I only cycled 6km and did lots of weights (upper-body sore today!). Resting today and hopefully tomorrow my foot'll be right for lots of squash and gym. I'm also seriously doubting my ability to walk 3km in 27mins 30 seconds. I know it sounds like loads of time to walk 3km in, but for some reason it's REALLY fast. Doesn't help of course that I'm so short either. If my leggies were longer it would've been a breeze. So I'm not too optimistic about the Australia thing right now. At least I tried I suppose.

Tonight I'm going to Chris's house and just watching a DVD or something relaxing. Tomorrow night we'll be going to a 18th birthday party! While wrapping the gift last night I realised it's been 7 years since I was 18.... and I felt REALLY REALLY OLD... I also keep hearing of 25 year olds having kids left right and centre. What's up with that? I'm not NEARLY ready for a child, and that's if I even consider ever having one, which I most probably won't.

So anyway, hope your weekend is cool!

P.S. If this post seems negative, sorry, it's not intended that way!

OK Alice - time for a pep talk! You CAN do anything that you set your ind to - including walk the 3k in that time frame. Look at all that you've accomplished just in the last year - and then think about how hard the years were prior to that. And, whether you do make it or not really doesn't matter - what matters is your process and that you don't leave anything "on the field" so to speak. Give it your all!

Hi –

I ran across another CF family’s blog (Cindy's) yesterday and it’s brought me to an entire world of CF blogs! I have an eleven year old daughter with CF (and an 8 year old daughter w/o). I hope you don’t mind if I start following yours!
