It seems like spring is practically here. Daffodils are out, blossom starting to appear on trees. Thursday was really quite sunny and warm. Unfortunately I was in Bristol on a last minute trip for work.
Monday to Wednesday was the normal work week. I did get the 3/4’s out and my thinner rain top. It was still a bit chilly on a couple of evenings though.
Yesterday Jayne and I went over to Arnside to ride across to Kirby Lonsdale and back. It is a very hilly but nice quiet route. Five or six climbs got us into the granny gears, but we rode everything and felt pretty good. Weather was sunny and cloudy with a cold breeze blowing on the exposed fells. A good day out though.
We went into Kendal, supposedly to get me some new full finger gloves, cos I’ve gone through the end of mine. An hour later, £20 worth of books and £100 worth on gloves for me, gloves for Jayne and a rather nice pair of Gore 3/4’s for me.
Was hoping to wear my new 3/4’s today but it was raining and horrible this morning, so we went for a run instead. We’ve been doing 2 mins run 2 mins walk for 30-35 minutes for the last few weeks. Tried today to up to 3mins running, 2 mins walking. We managed two lots of 3 mins running, then had to step down to 2 lots of 2 mins running. But we did then step back up to 3 mins for the last two runs. Getting better, going faster and breathing easier.
Only 67 miles for the week though
892 miles total, 373 behind my target
