Got close to overdoing the active bit this month… body nearly went on strike but after a couple of rest days seems OK now ;) Pleased with my time in the Nuneaton 10 mile and felt strength in the spirit of being an AC member. Occasionally managing to squeeze in a 2nd run each week and managed another fairly tough 10 mile route today. Despite distinct drop in temperature and daylight, still managing to keep up summer mileage on MTB – need to put serious thought to bike storage before upgrading with the aid of the new cycle scheme. Steady team effort gave us 8th place at RC Championships and have also qualified for DTM next month!? Had much more fun team chasing at Melton Mowbray, although sadly the ongoing threat of FMD has limited any further TC outings for now :( Took a small gang to XC @ Offchurch last weekend as alternative :-)
Still reading Richard Dawkins, God delusion book… not enough hours in the day for reading right now!
Really starting to notice the improvement of finishing off DIY jobs, keeping up with my rather high maintenance garden and clearing clutter from spare room. Maybe soon I can start some new projects…
Traveled to *Blenheim and Burghley 3DEs (horse stuff for those not in the know), with good company and fair weather great days out. The trek to Lincoln required a night stay – turns out a double air bed in the back of the Animal (L200) makes for a really comfy nights sleep :D
Food & Drink
Harvesting stuff from the garden not only satisfying but really tasty too. Rather partial to Guinness of late… medicinal of course ;-)
*we did have a serious horse injury here but with top class Vets on hand this was well taken care of and pleased to report that the casualty in on the mend.
Endnote: this blog has reached it’s 3rd birthday this month! wow time flies…
