The January Doldrums

I’ve been trying to think of things to add to the blog over the past week or so, but we just haven’t been up to much really. I guess it’s just the January Doldrums. It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s miserable and more often than not it’s dark outside. We’re back at work, Christmas seems as...

A TrainerRoad Quadrathlon Training Plan

With 2019 well under way and a lot of Christmas excess to shed I decided it was time for a new training plan. To be fair, some of the loss of fitness over Christmas was due to being ill for a few weeks, and over-indulging didn’t help matters. The timing was OK though. I may...

Grey Waves

It’s that time of year between Christmas and New Year. We’re all at home, there’s loads of food to be eaten and there’s not much happening. This year it’s also pretty grey and uninteresting out there. Thursday was drizzly and still to start the day so I headed out for a nice easy run. I’ve...

A Wet Windy Weekend in Wales

Another wet and very windy weekend here in West Wales. We don’t let that stop us though.

Bands, Brunches and Bank Holidays

2 Day Weeks Another weekend has gone and this one was a Bank Holiday Weekend – Although I’d kind of forgotten that as they all seem to roll into one these days. I also work from home on Mondays and Tuesdays every week so Bank Holiday Mondays don’t mean much to me. The weekend was action...

Playing at the Weekend

I was all geared up for my first proper down-winder on the surf ski this weekend. The forecast was looking good. There was supposed to be quite a bit of wind. It was supposed to be southerly and there should be some swell with it as well. OK, rain was forecast too, but if the...
