I love a bargain. I find them hard to resist. I’ve found a couple of great ones in the last few days.
Retro cycling caps from Planet X – less than a fiver each. Mine arrived this morning and it’s ace; so ace that I might order another one, just because they’re cheap and nice. I’ve been after one for a bit as they’re just the ticket for keep your head warm at 5am on a winter’s morning.
I was in our local Quality Save earlier (I know, it’s a bit scabby but it’s ok as long as you don’t make eye contact with anyone) and found a load of High 5 energy bars for 29p each, they’re normally £1.29 each! Ace. They’re not out of date but they are coconut flavour. I’m not bothered though…29p each!
I went for a run early this morning. Didn’t feel great. I’ve been running a bit this week but I’ve felt like crap every time. Perhaps it’s just that I’d not been running for ages…hopefully next week it’ll be less painful.
Out at 5am this morning for a couple of hours on the road bike before breakfast. There was a hard frost so I avoided the minor roads and the road through Affetside that’s always got a bloody stream running across it – the one that had me on my arse more than once last winter.
It was an enjoyable ride, clear sky, no wind but I’m starting to really look forward to the time when I can regularly attack the climbs and get the heart rate up stupidly high, even though when I do I’ll probably start to ignore the sky, the scenery and the weather. Well maybe not the weather.
I’m definately burning fat well though, cos er…I appear to be losing weight again. Gah. I also think I twanged something in my leg in the gym at work yesterday. Gnnnn.
Matt lives round these parts (I think). He wears bike stuff out, pads mainly. He rides A LOT.
10,000 miles, offroad in a year is outstanding. Think about it for a minute. Do the sums.
