12TH JULY 2005
Sounds like a great day out Tracey - can't fault the pies for tea Mmmmmm Pie
Sunshine predicted just about all day, so should be a good bank Holiday.
Like the idea of DIY races.
Sweetie has an exciting day of work, and I have an exciting day of... work - at least I will be outdoors albeit in a hedge digging gatepost holes.
a short dreadmill run and RPM for me this morning - now for a spot of gardening
DIY races may well be the way to go.
Well done on those climbs Tracey - I have had cause to drive up over the Bwlch on occasion - my ears pop! The views are amazing and well worth the trip. When I first started working up in that area the road would be scattered with burnt out cars, that seems to have stopped now for some reason.
What a stunning day
Excellent cycle ride Tracey. Hope you relaxed today.
Nice training Sue.
Hope you managed to enjoy the sunshine Boffin.
Swim this morning and run this evening. Did some tutoring earlier so a bit of work for me too.
Evening folks ....
Afternoon carrying daniel round that car show then over to brynmill park because he wanted to poke (with his plastic sword) the ducks. 7m hilly run tonight following.
DIY Races are the way to go .... I have done most of the races everywhere within striking distance. Can't now as I have kids to look after but don't miss it. Finding it harder and harder to get the motivation to drive somewhere to run 10 miles when I can run ten 10 miles from the house.
I have always wanted to organise one (or two). I fancy a point-2-point 5k (dunvant square to blackpill) and a one miler (dunvant square to bishwell). Maybe this summer.
WA - local races are the way to go. Love running but as you say, with the expense and time involved, driving a long way to run distances you can do here seems silly.
Lovely day again. Enjoy
The logistics of a point to point are a problem. People wouldn't like the walk back to Dunvant.
Planting beans and peas this morning.
Nice day to be out in the garden Tracey
I did enjoy the sunshine thanks Nutty - whilst digging post holes and setting posts in concrete. Had to hand mix the concrete as no power at that end of the farm - as I was dry mixing one batch a frog was wriggling around in the mix!
I rescued it and washed it off as I doubt it would have breathed for long covered in cement dust!
Guess what, more fencing today!
Tracey - thats the thing with point to point. Could always run up to Dunvant Square as a warm up and race back?
Nice day again. You've been busy Boffin. Good job your back is better. You need lots of pie
Back to work today. Always go for a wander round Singleton Park in my lunch break. It's looking lovely at the mo
Good idea Nutty, although I don't know how many people would do a 5k warm up for a 5k race.
People don't understand distance the way we do. You tell people you ran 5 miles and they think it's something amazing. It's the same with the bike, I'm thinking of doing a 100 mile ride next month and some of me colleagues nearly had a heart attack when I mentioned it. I just thought it looked like a lovely route...
where has the sun gone.
next time you have apie fest you will have to have a DIY handicap race.....
Link widget is broken, but here's the route for that bike ride:
the link ain't working tracey
Mmmmm Pie - like the sound of that Nutty
There must be brick wall handy for me to bang my head on... Boff Jnr managed to break his collar bone in three places whilst running around at school - less than one week before the start of his GCSEs. - Of course, it was his right arm and he is right handed, so writing might be interesting! Wheels are in motion to get him dispensation for his injury; extra time in exams and a note to the examiner offering an explanation for poor handwriting.
The clouds were sulking that they didn't get a look in the last two days Seren, so they are back to make their point!
... since when did this forum have an auto-correct spell function?
Boffin.wouldn't a computer be easier for him to use than his dodgy arm.......
or he could have a scribe to write for him....
my son was going to have a scribe but he has used a laptop for all lessons for the last few years so his typing speed is fast enough for him to do the exams on the computer.....
he hasn't broken anything...his problem is noone including himself can read his writing
Such bad news Boffin. These things happen. My nephew broke his elbow half way through his A levels. Good luck to you all.
I can only ride 5 miles on the bike. 100 miles sounds tough but I can understand how lovely it could be.
Hope life with you is good Seren.
Nice evening for running
Oh no poor Boff Junior! Presumably his grades up to now will be taken into consideration as well as the provision being made for him to sit the exams. I'm sure he'll be fine, much less able children pass exams in these circumstances.
I suspect 100 miles on the bike will be tough Nutty, it's further than I have ever ridden by quite a margin. But hopefully it's not beyond the realms of possiblity, I intend to do a few longer rides beforehand and see how they go.
I am sure Boff Jnr will be fine - all part of life's rich tapestry
Not sure I could do 5 miles at the moment Nutty! 100 miles is a nice round number and a great target; you're sure to have a great time Tracey
Good luck Tracey - I am sure you will enjoy it. You did a long cycling holiday a few years ago didn't you? Is this one for charity? I think you will need lots of pie and cake after that one.
Boffin - thinking of you and Tom. How awful but as you say all part of life's rich tapestry. Sometimes I wish the rich tapestry would just be plain boring!
Nice t-shirt WA.
Another week flying by....
