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. A good Spring clean (even though its Winter) early on Saturday morning without waking Anna and Morgan meant that the house was ready for the Christmas decorations to go up. It’s surprising what you find under the sofa though!...

An Energetic Day

And the latest injury is…

There’s always something isn’t there. The latest injury is barely an injury at all, but it’s still preventing me from doing much training. Coming Back from an Achilles Injury I hadn’t been able to run for a couple of month thanks to an achilles injury. Rest was the name of the game for my achilles...

Summer Continues

The gorgeous summer weather continues here. 25.5ºC yesterday which was plenty hot enough, especially for lawn mowing! 20ºC today was mouch more comfortable and lovely blue skies throughout. The sea is feeling as though summer is here and the garden is growing well. I had a busy day on Monday, starting off the day with a...

Rest is Best

Following on from my achilles injury I forced myself to have a week of complete rest. To be honest I could barely walk for the first couple of days so I didn’t really have any choice, but it seemed to pay off. My achilles is still sore if I walk too far on it and...
