Monday Morning Swim

What better way to start the week than a nice little swim in the sea. First time this year without my extremities covered in neoprene so it was a little chilly despite being in the balmy waters of Borth. It was a little choppy too as Jo, Sara, Nick and myself set off to the...

An Altogether Better Day

I’m pleased to report that Sunday went a little better than Saturday did. Running through the Bluebells It started with a nice trail run around Penglais Woods in the early morning sunshine.

Boxing Day in the Sea

Well, it’s been pretty grey here for the last few days. Cheerful enough indoors though and I of course couldn’t resist getting into the sea anyway. The beach looked quiet first thing on Boxing Day. There were rumours of a mas swim in Borth at Midday so I headed down there for a swim too....

The Heatwave Continues

Heatwave We’re getting used to this heatwave now. It’s once again 28.1ºC out there at the moment and it doesn’t even feel that hot now as we’ve seen temperatures up above 30ºC every day for the last week. Before that it was up into the mid to high 20’s for a while and we haven’t...
