Mountains & Waves

Another action packed day for me, and I think I’m suitably tired now. The original plan had been to continue with my Coast Path run, but the weather for South Wales looked pretty horrible. Rather than drive for 5 hours so as to run for a few hours in the pouring rain I decided to...

Sociable Training

I was quite sociable last week. I usually do pretty much all of my training on my own. I find it quicker to do, easier to fit into my schedule and probably more productive too. However, there’s no real focus to my training at the moment. I’m just training and racing for the fun of...

Non-Stop Sunday

Phew, that was a busy day even by my standards. Saturday was pretty busy as it goes with various garden carpentry repairs but I did get to chill with a nice big curry in the evening. Surf Ski Session Sunday started early with a Surf Ski session from Ynyslas to Borth. It was a lovely...

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...
