Stretching things a little too far

Stretching my Morning Trail Run Saturday was a grey, mizzly kind of day for our first excursion for 9 months. Sunday was altogether nicer with blue skies and a crisp autumnal feel. I missed a run on Saturday as I had been a little lazy. I therefore decided to stretch my planned 50 minute Sunday...

The Weeks Roll By

There still isn’t much happening here really. We are continuing to stay as shielded as we can as the virus is still out there. We hardly even noticed that the school holidays had begun. The fact that we’ve all been at home for so long now meant that there wasn’t really a noticeable difference. I...

Non-Coast Path Runs

After making an attempt to continue with my Wales Coast Path Run a few weeks ago my plans to continue it over the Spring were scuppered by the Coronavirus Lockdown. Typically, every Tuesday since then has seen perfect conditions as well. Clear blue skies, light winds and pleasant temperatures. The travel restrictions have of course...

Running around Trawsfynydd

Anna and I were heading out for the evening on Sunday, so I didn’t hang around long in Colwyn Bay after the races. I did however stop off for a run on the way home. I stopped at Trawsfynydd Lake as that was a good halfway marker on the drive and I’d never ran here...

Saturday Activities

Just a normal Saturday here really. I was up early so managed to get some work done before Anna got up. The tide was too high to get out on the sea so next up was an hour on the turbo trainer which actually felt quite easy, and then a quick run around Ynyslas. By...

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

What a day that was! Trail Running at Nant yr Arian A nice early start for me so that I could do a little bit of work before heading up to Nant yr Arian. I was there before 6:30am and headed off for a trail run. Needless to say that it was completely dark as...

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...

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...
