I am way behind on my target, over 240 miles short.  And pretty poor at updating here Sad smile.

Last week wasn’t too bad miles wise, I  rode to work every day.  The move from Thirsty Thursday to Tuesday isn’t going well, so far we’ve managed 1 week.   Work is hectic and the potential moves to a new company are still not clear.  I’m not overly worried as I am on a pretty good package if they can me.

Three weeks ago I was in Switzerland for a few days.  I took my running shoes but we had heavy snow the day I arrived and it didn’t clear til the morning we left.  We did some riding at the weekend to compensate,including a 60+ mile ride through the Trough.  It was very cold. at one point Joe and another guy hit a big patch of ice, crashing to the ground, Joe on the elbow he broke the other year.  After that we were quite cautious, which was a real shame because other than the ice, it was ideal loony descent conditions off Boundary Hill.

The week before last was OK.  I was down in Bristol for three days.  I took my running stuff and actually got out to use it.  Two nights of 30 mins, 2 mins run 2 mins walk.  I got Jayne out at the weekend doing the same.  I think I might have killed her!

No riding this weekend, working in the garden.  I did make this though083084
