and..... rest... ish....

First of all this is a joint post from both of us as the only internet we've found in Klagenfurt is in the McDonalds and the less time we have to spend in here the better ;)

Having not logged on for nearly a week it's been great to read all the positive comments which have been posted on here. We've been overwhelmed that so many people not only read what we write but are also motivated by it... it's also been a fantastic help to us allowing us to develop as triathletes and also as people. Obviously we didn't manage to qualify for Hawaii this year, however with Lanzarote only ten months away and Canada also in the pipeline for 2009 our exciting journey will continue ;)

We're both still super happy with how we raced on Sunday and have taken many positives from the 140.6 miles round Frankfurt. Once we get back to England (we drive back from Austria on Tuesday) we'll both post detailed race reports and reflections etc. but for the moment it's nice to kick back and cheer on our friends in this weekends Ironman Austria. 

Oddly enough, having both been the most exhausted ever after Ironman Germany we've managed an easy 5k run for the last four mornings have swum in the beautiful lake Worthersee every day and even got out for a lap of the bike course on Friday (in a leisurely 6.5 hours including several swim/lunch/ice cream stops) and are both feeling pretty good! 

Today's picture is of H and I at the top of the famous Rupertiberg climb of Ironman Austria taken yesterday in the blazing sun. It was great to take it nice and easy and stop at the top to admire the view... Jonny and Kelsey's brilliant graffiti from 2007 certainly made us smile ;)

Right, with four minutes left it's time to dash. See you back in blighty next week,

T & H
