The end result of the fettucine boscaiola. I was proud of that achievement too LOL!!
Garlic bread, fettucine boscaiola with bacon, mushrooms and cream, a ton of parmy cheese, 2 glasses of red, a cappuccino and a Mars Bar cheesecake = post comp feed. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven :-)
Cut to the “post-comp drinks” with my WH. Its time to relax with a few drinks and just reconnect. We talk heaps – honestly about what this has meant for each of us as individuals and as a couple. I acknowledge that there is some work to be done to restore balance, to reconnect, to focus on “us” now. That’s not to say I wont keep training (I definitely will) and watching what I eat but not to the extent that I have of late. We will then see what the future brings. Will I compete again? Well let me just say that I have well and truly fallen in love with this sport BUT I need to give consideration to those things I’ve mentioned earlier. If all that is brought back to a happy and positive place then LOOK OUT FOR ME IN 2008. I’ll be a woman on another mission LOL!!
My post comp dinner was just superb. We went back to the awful café with no atmosphere and just ignored that they had no bottled red wine, that we were rushed through our meal, that it was completely empty and they were keen to get us out and close up. I NEEDED pasta and I had it and life was good.
Just briefly I’ll say that we had a superb time in Brissie and Noosa where our accommodation was luxurious to say the least. I ate too much, drank too much, lazed by the pool, shopped, used the hotel gym and went for the best morning walks/runs. Pure bliss until by Friday night I was well and truly over all the food and drink and reined it back in for a healthier more sustainable lifestyle.
In my next post I’ll include some pics from the APCs. I don’t have many good ones but I’ll share the best of what I have.
