Higher Intensity 1

Upping the Intensity

After months of Base level training over the winter, it’s time to gradually start upping the intensity a little. Nothing too mad yet, just some harder, shorter intervals on the bike and some tempo runs rather than the usual low heart rate MAF zone runs. Sick Bucket Needed! Monday saw the first sunny day for...

Busy Days at Work

It was a busy day for all of us yesterday. I started it with some work on the computer and then a nice 3x 12 minute sweetspot turbo trainer session courtesy of a TrainerRoad workout called Geiger. It was then the usual hectic half an hour of getting ready for work and school before we...

A New Sports and Exercise Job for Al

Well, that felt odd this morning… Heading off to work while the sun was shining and Anna and Morgan were off at home. It’s usually the other way around, I’m the one staying at home whilst they head off to school and work, but not today thanks to my new(ish) job at the University. Yes,...

The Joys of Website Design

I don’t often write about work here as this is a personal weblog but when you’re self-employed it is sometimes hard to get away from work. It is always there, I am the business and there’s no getting away from myself, however hard I try. It is therefore always good to remind myself why I’m...

Multiple Income Streams

One of the important things to do as a self-employed freelancer is to make sure you have multiple income streams as you just never know what is going to happen next. I don’t do too badly in that respect although it can get quite hectic now and then. As well as my main job as...

Last day at Work 0

Last day at Work

Yesterday was my last day working at the university. I’ve been working as a website editor for a project there. The project is now ‘in limbo’ so my contract hasn’t been extended which means I’m back to being a full-time freelance website designer. I shall continue working for the project on a freelance basis for...
