Did a triathlon yesterday and amazingly came in with a sub-60min time. I didn't think I was as fit as I could be because I hadn't been training as hard as I could have this year. But I was about 15 mins behind the first place finisher. In a race with about 1100 other women, it felt great.
Friday wasn't such a good day. My laptop died on me, and even though important data was saved, it looks like my laptop won't be making the trip to Brisbane with me this week. As today is a public holiday, I will not be getting a new loaned laptop until sometime tomorrow afternoon, which means all the preparation for my presentation will have to be left till tomorrow. I leave for Brisbane on Wednesday. It sounds as though I have plenty of time to get prepared. A whole afternoon! Whooee.... But the truth is, I have to reinstall specialized software which may or may not work with the new laptop. I think tomorrow will be a stressful day for me. There's nothing worse, in my books, than being unprepared. This whole last-minute thing just does not sit well with me.
Still, I suppose things could have been worse... My laptop could have decided to die on me a whole hour before I am due for the presentation.
The week ahead will be challenging, nonetheless. Back from Brisbane on the 12th and off again to the South Island for another meeting, then back again, to make the drive into Capital City on the 14th.
