We are so thankful that everything went well and there were no complications and the baby boy is healthy.
Yesterday, the first working day of 2010 didn't start so good for me but as I said to some staff members things can only get better. With the break inn we had over the weekend they stole our server but it was recovered when they caught the thief. The only problem was that he ripped everything into pieces when he stole it.
We first tried figuring out which cable must go where but with no luck. One thing that was on our side is that we changed from one IT company to another as the previous one just could not maintain and sort out our IT issues.
Being the first day for the new company they were there in a flash and had us up and running just after midday. Guess they had to impress on their first call out. I'm sure if it was still the previous company we would have been without Internet and emails and all the different systems being used to run a dealership up to now
This is a picture as I drove into Springs yesterday morning. The rain is really creating havoc and a lot of accidents are happening with everybody going back to work.
Luckily it is warm and sunny with no rain down at the coast where the family is enjoying themselves. I am flying down to join them tomorrow afternoon and will have a little break with them until Sunday. Dejone is so excited and can't wait to see me (and ViceVersa). Every time she phones or sends a sms she tells me how she is missing me.
The last two days training has been right on schedule, just hope it can stay like that. I won't take my bike with me to the coast and will concentrate on my running and swimming. If we are back early on Sunday I will do my long ride then instead of Saturday.
I am really super excited about my swimming and just need to keep the focus. I compared my times with those of June 2009 when I was also 4 weeks into my 20 week program. I am about 10 seconds per 100 meter faster on average. I now swim constantly between 1:32 and 1:138 per 100 meter.
On this mornings run I continued trying the run/walk technique. It is amazing, I did exactly the same distance during my 50 minute tempo run compared to last week even with the 1 minute walking intervals. The big difference is I run at a faster pace during the 10 minute intervals and I feel stronger later in the run and can maintain a faster pace. All this was done in the prescribed heart rate zone.
I am sure that the pace will even improve more as my fitness improve.
