Some Changes Coming

Well I don't have much to blog about at this stage but soon I will. At work everything is still the same old ............ but on the Ironman front things are changing. I have made some decisions that I feel came improve my Ironman lifestyle and chances to qualify for Kona in 2011.

It's not that I am keeping it a secret but I am just very busy at work and helping DJ with ANOTHER school project and I don't want to rush my next post. By the way "DJ" is making a chair for her school project.

Amazing how she call me to her room Sunday and says she want to tell me something while closing the door. I thought OK she can't be pregnant, wonder what is so serious. She then inform me that "we" have a school project that must be finished by Thursday. Perfect timing with a weekend just gone by and I had not much to do, can see a few late nights coming up.

Add to that an early morning start tomorrow as I am going to Bothaville to take some clients to the Nampo Agricultural show. The new VW Amarok will be there on display as it is launching during August in South Africa and we have the opportunity to take clients to see the vehicle. Bothaville is a good 3hr drive from Witbank.

Training for the week: Not much as I had a bit of flu but did some training and feeling 100% again.

Oh, on my run to the track on Saturday I picked up a mobile phone next to the road. Long story short, I put the battery, covers etc. back and phoned last number. After some tracking (from guy who's phone it was looking for me as I kept on running he got his phone back) He left it on his car's roof and lost it as he drove away from a friends house. If it wasn't a Nokia phone I maybe would have kept it(haha).
