A day to recover

First time for a while but I slipped back into the old Sunday routine like I hadn't been away from it. It was like slipping on that old pair of underpants you find at the bottom of the drawer, you haven't worn them for years but you just know they're going to be comfy. Ahhh, bliss.

There were four of us out there today, Sean, Mark, Rick and me. The weather just about held. In fact it made for pretty decent running conditions. It was grey and overcast but not windy and not too cold. We headed off into Leigh Woods and then along the tow path towards Pill. Once we got to Pill we turned around and came back. Mark carried on for a few extra miles because he's preparing himself for Leg 14 of the Welsh Castles Relay, Drovers - the baddest bad boy of all the twenty stages. Have to say he is looking sharp - for an oldie (sorry Mark).

Anyway, after the run - which lasted an hour and five - I headed down the gym to complete half an hour on the bike. I worked pretty hard on the bike. Not eye balls out - but hard enough never the less. My legs feel completely shagged now but was it ever good to slip back into the old routine...

Thought for the day: You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely. ;)
