This cheetah doesn't want you to know that she is totally unprepared for racing. manfredrichter / Pixabay This weekend, I'm racing Culpeper International. It's local and hilly. And I am feeling very unprepared. At least as compared to my previous races. I've really been nailing my training over the past few months, so to have such a lackluster month right before a race has me feeling a bit off kilter. No regrets, of course I was dealing with a small injury that led to another small injury and my quad still isn't quite right (but it's getting there). And it's not that I'm actually untrained. Just not feeling quite as prepared as I would have liked for a race that is as challenging as this one will be. So I'm going in without any real time goals, just to finish strong, whatever that happens to mean on the day. On to last week's training: Monday: Rest Day Tuesday: 2 mile run and Team Fight swim Wednesday Supposed to be an FTP test but I didn't have the energy, so I put it off and ran Thursday's 4 miles instead. Thursday FTP test time! And when I was done, I discovered that the battery in my power meter was just low enough that it dropped out a few times during the test, so no measurable result. Alas. Friday 2000 meter swim, followed by my annual physical where my doctor proudly proclaimed me healthy (and commented that she likes to see healthy people come in for checkups and why don't more of you do this?) Saturday Volunteered at the Team Fight tri camp, which meant lots of swimming in some crazy water and some running of the bike/run course as I helped direct people. Went home and finished up my 6 mile run on the treadmill. Sunday I was dead after Saturday, but went out to ride anyway. Felt like I was dying the entire time, and when I finished, discovered that I was PRing segments of the course. No wonder everything hurt!

Do you hear London calling? I recently took a walk around Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens on a spare day, while visiting my parents who live in London. I was struck by how much fun it can be to be a tourist in your own backyard, seeing familiar places that you probably wouldn't spend much time in, unless you happen to be showing a visiting friend around. In this guide on things to do in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, I've teamed up with London Connection, who offer luxurious apartment stays in Central London, that let you experience London like a local. The Rose Garden in Hyde Park Let's start our walk at Hyde Park Corner where there's a convenient tube stop. Just inside the park gates we'll find the Rose Gardens, a beautiful area enclosed by yew hedges, filled with shrub roses and herbaceous borders. Many people don't even realise it's there as they walk along the broad path from the Queen Elizabeth gates towards the Serpentine. The climbing roses are trained along chains between the pillars, surrounding the central statue of a boy with dolphin, and you can find a quiet benches to sit and enjoy the bees 
So, you intend to begin a residential plumbing company. This might be a good decision, or it could be the worst notion ever in your life. Beginning a residential plumbing company, or any business really, requires plenty of organized thinking to set everything into position, and ensuring that you've considered each detail.
In many ways, setting up a domestic plumbing company isn't any different than opening a electrical company, dental office, or a tech startup. There are particular points you'll find in any business. This includes such things as how to set up your business.
Once you correctly structure yourself, however, you'll be ready to start.
Terrible shit is definitely on the way in business. Don't be novice enough to believe it isn't. The actual test of an entrepreneur is how you decide to handle it. The true entrepreneurs are the ones who can make it through during the difficult times, not the easy ones. If you can't handle it whenever things get rough, go take a job being employed by someone who can.
Any business goes thru these struggles, even these guys
The first thing, subsequently, is to examine the reasons you want to start the business to start with. A job is much less stressful. Check out the YouTube video beneath for more info.How to begin your own plumbing contractor business enterprise
I don't often accept reviews to cafes since there are really a dime a dozen out there, and for the most part, I like my street food & higher end restaurants (especially when I get to eat for free), but when Sue msg and told me about the Korean-run Table 9 Cafe & Kitchen at Bangsar, I thought why not?
Table 9 Cafe & Kitchen, Bangsar Jalan Telawi 3 As mentioned, the restaurant is slightly different from your run off the mill mid-market cafe with a proper kitchen. Eve, our host and co-owner, is Korean, and her partner, who is in charged of coming up with the menu, is another Korean. So while the menu may not try to claim that they are any different (and they don't actively advertise it), Table 9 is actually pretty unique in its offering.
Well, for one, they actually have bingsu in their menu, but more on that later.
proper latte is always a good thing to have at a cafe Any cafe worth its salt should be able to serve up a good cup of coffee, and in this regard Table 9 did not disappoint. The latte was as good as any I've had, no complaints from yours truly.
Table 9 Breakfast, with French Toast Our first dish was the Table 9 Breakfast (RM 25) with optional French Toast (additional RM 1), and I think the French toast option is a must, they were so fluffy and just so.. good! The scrambled egg was top notch too. Other ingredients did not disappoint either, though I thought the sausage was rather average.
rosemary chicken Caesar salad, carbonara di cipolla in bread bowl If you're a salad sort of person, the Rosemary Chicken Caesar Salad (RM 24) is an option. It has romaine lettuce, cherry tomato, properly grilled chicken breast, cheese, but also a Caesar salad sauce that's unlike any I've had, it's rich and spicy, yes, it is spicy in a .. Korean sort of way. I do find it interesting and kinda like it. We also try the Carbonara di Cipolla (RM 25) with optional bread bowl (RM 4.50), if you like cream pasta, you'd not be disappointed. Eve told us that in Korea, bread bowl with pasta is quite a common option anywhere. I think this can easily feed two pax who do not have huge appetite.
Caprese pasta with mozzarella, baked zucchini Caprese (RM 29) is my favorite dish of the day, it's a quite a simple tomato base pasta with mozzarella and truffle oil, and I thought the truffle oil adds quite a bit to the dish, and those big chunks of mozzarella , yums! If light breakfast is your thing, baked zucchini (RM 19) with cheese and tuna may fit the bill. Perfect for those looking for low carb options, perhaps.
gorgonzola & maple panini, pizza jalapeno Gorgonzola & Maple Panini (RM 22) is one of Eve's favorite dishes in this restaurant, and it's not hard to see why. The sandwich is savory and sweet in the right combination. With the side of fries, this makes for a full meal. And as if we're not totally stuffed by then, Pizza Jalapeno (RM 22) was served. This was a spicy pizza, thin, and they sure didn't skim on the cheese, again it did not disappoint.
tomato bingsu They have 8 different bingsu, or Korean shaved ice dessert here, with the weirdest of all being the tomato bingsu (RM 15), so naturally that's what we ordered. The ice certainly milky and fully, and the tomato puree poured on top did make it that much more interesting. A little weird at first spoonful perhaps but you do get the hang of it, I liked it very much.
KY, Haze, & Eve the Korean co-owner Overall I thought it was a very good brunch session at Table 9, with most of the dishes belong to the category of I'd definitely won't regret ordering. We now know where to go for a good meal with a sweet bingsu ending.
