Today's step target was 13,302. Another lovely summers day and although I got up later than planned I managed a slightly longer walk into work this morning.
After work I took Archie out for his walk - or more appropriately Archie took me for a walk down to the beach. We haven't done this walk for ages so it was nice for a change. After 2 hours I wasn't sure I had enough energy to go out on the bike. It all depended on whether OH had left my bike off the rack and ready to go. When I got back I checked the shed - yep Dawesy was on the floor and ready to ride.
I quickly got changed (faffed around on Twitter) and headed out to repeat yesterdays 8 mile out and back. I really pushed myself and managed an average speed of over 12 mph (yippee). A much better ride tonight with no idiots to ting my bell at or yell at and lots of happy, smiley runners and cyclists to nod & smile back at.
The only downside to summer evening rides is the bugs - they really don't taste very nice, and the ones that just jump to the back of your throat are horrid !
This was me for most of my ride
A nice 8 miles in 40 minutes!
Thought you might like to see how this year's food crops are doing
|Courgettes coming on nicely|
|Some tomatoes - the other two plants are similar|
|Some green stuff which is a bit like spring greens so I'm told!|
|Broad beans flowering - first year we've grown these!|
