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...

A Long Paddle and a Long Ride

That was a nice weekend. Nice that is if you ignore the invasion of the tourists! It’s been lovely here during lockdown; everything has been peaceful and quiet, the wildlife has been loving it, the beach has been clean and tidy and the roads have been quiet. Now that lockdown has been mainly lifted here...

Up the Dyfi

Making the most of my One Excursion per Day With the Coronavirus lock-down in full effect, we are only allowed one excursion outside to exercise each day. I thought I’d make the most of it today. The weather was forecast to be really nice. I’d already done lots of University work from home on Monday...

Surf Ski Course in Fishguard

A Surf Ski instructor (Benjamin) that I met at the Mawddach Marathon messaged me a while ago about a Surf Ski Course that he was running in Fishguard, asking if I’d like to go along. I declined at first as I thought it sounded a little too basic for me but Benjamin said that it...

Sunny Surf Ski

After a wet and miserable day in North Wales competing in a kayak Time Trial on Llyn Padarn. Monday was a perfect day. Wall to wall sunshine, 5ÂșC and some lovely little waves to play in on my doorstep. I’m hoping to get the ‘North Wales Surf Ski Paddlers’ down here to Borth and Ynyslas...

Santa Hats at Llyn Padarn Time Trial

With the 2017 Welsh Cyclocross Series done and dusted I was able to head up to North Wales to join in with the Llyn Padarn Kayak Time Trial Series on Sunday instead. I’d already missed races 1,2 & 3 of this series but it’s a fairly informal affair that anyone can join in with as...
