As well as sore muscles from the Weggis race and pedalling the Twike home afterwards, work also conspired to to impede training, with a marathon schedule of performances the following weekend: 'Traviata' on the Friday evening, and 'My Fair Lady' Saturday evening, Sunday afternoon, and Sunday evening. I can honestly say I'd had enough of it by then! Both pieces had some of the most uncomfortable costumes I've ever worn. After the 'fat suit' in 'Traviata', the giant book and the extravagant hat in 'MFL'. (There was also a collection of rags as a market trader.) If I was not actually on stage, I was constantly getting changed (including wigs and make up) - some of them fast changes; and trekking up and down the stairs between the stage and our fourth floor dressing room was 'interesting' with painful calves and quads! So.............. not a restful weekend.
Nothing to do with running, but a couple of photos:

Back to more relevant stuff next time, promise.
