Congratulations on joining us in the ranks of the retirees. Oh yes, you definitely will quickly get used to not getting up for work - and you will find yourself busy anyway. I seem to have things to do all the time.
Funnily enough the sun is shining brightly now but earlier it was snowing!
Bike and run workout duly completed, still a bit chilly out there but the wind isn't anywhere near as strong as yesterday. Took the dogs with me on my run and ended up with 2 extra sprint efforts really really hard as they tried to take off after an animal. Not sure what the first one was, it crossed about 200m ahead of us and went up into the forest, about the shape and size of a badger but don't think we have any around here. Wasn't a fox, wrong colour, could maybe have been a young wild pig. Whatever it was the dogs wanted to chase after it. 2nd time was a cat!
TE, well done on your pyramids, I love doing those. People think I'm strange for really enjoying tough workouts, the harder they are the more I love doing them. I agree about core exercises, I think it's especially important as you get older and start to stiffen up.
Thanks Columba, he's very photogenic. - no problem feeding him, if it's food Charlie eats it! Both dogs love fruit, it is impossible in our house for either John or I to eat an orange or banana in peace. Forgot to add he also gets a tablespoon of oats with his meat. My supplier has everything you can think of including goat, rabbit, fish, venison, offal so my dog gets a good variety.
Sounds like you had an "interesting" run, character-building indeed.
Have to check my kitchen today for hot cross bun ingredients - I refuse to eat shop bought when the ones John bakes are soooo much better.
The sun is shining and the wind has dropped to a reasonable level so looks like a good training day - my tri plan has a 45 min bike ride with 4 x 3 min hard efforts followed by a 7km run with 6 x 1min sprints.
