Attempted to cycle yesterday...not too bad for the first hour out, then I turned into full on wind and was barely moving . Freezing cold by the time I got down off the moors and glad I had put a jacket on, hands frozen rigid to the bars in Summer gloves...putting my Winter gear away in the cupboard was perhaps too hasty .
I'm all 'thrown out' as regards the Easter holidays, are the kids back at school yet? I keep seeing loads of people in Pollok Park, and last night my upstairs neighbours (one is a trainee teacher) had a party...on a Monday night , luckily didn't go on too long...feel like I'm in some kind of time warp since I came back from Italy .
7 miles today and then had a big load of work delivered, that will keep me out of trouble .
Read a lovely story about the SDW50 this weekend just gone - the first place lady (7hrs and something) left behind her trophy for the last place lady (fought to the very last minute to come 9secs inside the 13hr cut-off) as she said it was more deserving to go to someone who had spent longest on the course. Just when I thought ultra running was in danger of getting all w*nky and up itself someone comes along and shows you there is still true sportsmanship and some unselfish people out there .
Spent Saturday dodging the hail / sleet / rain at the allotment, mostly planting things indoors, Sunday turned out quite nice in the afternoon so got loads of digging and building done. By the time I got home, quite late, I thought I had better not sit down until I got my tea on, otherwise I would probably totally seize up and not get up again !! I am looking forward to the summer when I can get my BBQ stove on and sit out on the plot after a days work .
Surprisingly did a decent 8m today and legs didn't feel too knackered or stiff. Need to build some more long runs now...
