Payday today so, naturally, I now have no money. After a nice walk with Toffee - out the door a little early courtesy of Phil texting me at 0530. I really do need a word with him - I settled down with a breakfast shake and a LOT of coffee and ... Read more

Work is lovely and busy so the day just flies along. I am home again before I know it. Last night I fell over. Knocked over by 2 boxer dogs with no owner in sight actually. This morning I was a bit bruised and stiff. I had a bad night too as I... Read more
Sunday and the weather was mixed

As was my day. The weather started off Ok but I had things to do. Lots of things to do, so riding was to be postponed - until it got dark as it happened - as I had other priorities. Today went like this: Walk Toffee dog for half an h... Read more

It seems that Phil had a proper lurgy going on. I saw him Monday night and he looked terrible. I fed him and tucked him up under the duvet by 7. I was so shattered that I joined him less than 90 minutes later and slept like a dead thing. Tu... Read more

After my ride, yesterday evening, I realised that I was just 14 miles away from having ridden 3000 miles so far this year. I thought that I had better look for a chink in the weather and get myself out there. I woke at 7 this morning, a lay... Read more

I was at the Yellowbellies rendezvous 15 minutes early, to stick my roadie back together. I only have a little hatchback car so need to take the front wheel out of any bike I am travelling in it. I saw another cyclist and waved to them. The chap... Read more
Saturday morning with some coffee

Today is the official inaugural ride of the Yellow Bellies Cycle Club. Weather is pants, naturally. Just English 'pants', not USA 'pants'. I can deal with a bit of a breeze and some intermittent drizzle, it's not like the storms and hurricanes t... Read more

I did manage a couple of 18 mile rides over the weekend. One alone and one with one of the Yellowbellies, my bike club. Both were fun. Today I am breaking my day down into one hour segments. I just set a timer on my phone and stick some mus... Read more

Wednesday, I just thought 'stuff it', rang our Mark and asked if I could crash at his place for a couple of days. He's an untidy thing but I really needed to get away from here, for a few days. I landed at Mark's at about 3.30pm and spent a... Read more

It's been a rough couple of days. Yesterday I totally lost the plot and went off on a nice 35 mile cycle ride to cool my jets. Another 50km+ ride for my annual challenge. It was the 7th qualifying ride of the month. Today, I was still angry so... Read more

Sunday, August 27, 2017      6 comments

So here we are again. Another week of life gone by and I've barely logged in as I have been out living and doing stuff. It's the summer and that seems to happen a lot. After my 101km ride, I was shattered so only did a quick 12 miles on Mon... Read more

I took lovely Toffee out for a good 90 minute walk today. Only walking as I ran with him yesterday for 1.3km (.8 of a mile but it sounds further in km). It was 6am and we had a nice, mostly off lead, walk. I had breakfast, did some phone ch... Read more
Tuesday morning and the sun is shining

I have taken the morning off work to find parts for my car. I had to wait until the place was open then ring back to see if they had the bits and then ring back when the right chap was in. They get aerated at work if I do it there so have taken ... Read more

I had a nice lie in today. Then Ken came around and we watched The Lone Ranger on DVD in the morning. First time ever, that I have watched a film in the morning. Ken put my Speedplay Zero Pedals on Bluey, the road bike for me, as my hands are pr... Read more

Dreadful week really. Tuesday was Pixar night in with Phil, Wednesday was a trip to Boston and a walk by the river, Thursday was hilly 16 miler and yesterday I got a nice 38 miler in, on the flat, on the bike. Work is getting worse and worse... Read more
