More Sunshine and More Wind

Another perfect day here in Ynyslas. More Sunshine and More wind. There were some lovely views over the estuary from on top of the dunes first thing. When this was taken there was barely a breath of wind. That soon changed though whilst I was doing a hard VO2Max Interval session on the turbo trainer....

Sunny Bank Holiday

I can’t quite believe it… Gorgeous sunshine on a Bank Holiday weekend. That can only mean one thing, a busy beach – busier in fact than we’ve ever seen it. Not to worry, we’ll soon have it back to ourselves. It was great weather for the Aber Cycle Fest as well. There were four Sportives...

Aber Cycle Fest, Hotdogs on the Beach and a Xmas Dinner

Friday was a busy one for us as usual. A 75 minute, fairly tough turbo trainer session first thing for me (after an hour or so of work). Today’s session was Mount Hope -2 from TrainerRoad which consisted of 4x 10 minute threshold intervals. One just below threshold, one at threshold, one just above threshold...

Garden Reconstruction

Morgan was at home ill on Monday, he wasn’t too bad but he was recovering from a nasty bout of diarrhea and sickness on Sunday, so I was housebound too. I did a fair bit of work first thing, then did an hour on the turbo trainer with some VO2max intervals courtesy of ‘Shortoff +1’ from...

Bank Holiday Activities

Dawn Chorus in the Dunes That was a good bank holiday. My usual early start but for a change I didn’t get up immediately but lay in bed listening to the dawn chorus. The blackbirds and sparrows were in good voice and they were soon joined by Skylark too. I’m sure there were robins and plenty...

Business as Usual

It’s been quiet here recently. Nothing to blog about really. We’ve all had some sort of lurgy to one extent or another. It completely wiped me out for a few days and of course stopped me training. Anna and Morgan have had it it too, just not quite so bad. Beekeeping I’m gradually getting back...

Weekend Activities

It was a little difficult to fit my usual weekend activities in this weekend but we managed it. Friday was a manic day thanks to the Eisteddfod that Morgan was playing in. Saturday was just as frantic as it was Morgan’s laser tag birthday party. Jay, Charlie and Jack were visiting for the weekend too....
