Still I’m on holiday next week, man do I need it… I spent a lovely 3 nights in Edinburgh this week. It was lovely and unhealthy, involving full breakfasts and other wonderful food. On day number 2 we did climb Arthur’s Seat, which I very much recommend. It wasn’t particularly strenuous for me (it was […]

Bad day

I may not have time for my usual lunchtime spin tomorrow…   It’s just a short one today. I did make time for my lunchtime spinning class: I think I might have a little cold as I actually slowed down at the end. I usually manage to soldier through, but once again oxygen, rather than […]

Hour of spin

Not sure what’s going on tomorrow… It turns “I’m not sure” means “I’m going to do the hour- long level 4 (out of 4) spinning class after work” – ouch. It was a lot harder than last time, possibly as I had the weird bike that has a resistance knob that needs to be turned […]

No ViPR!

I may do ViPR again tomorrow and I definitely will regret it… Alas ViPR was cancelled! Of course I’m kind of glad about that. Unfortunately I got to the gym before realising it was cancelled (I really should check online beforehand) so I had to make do with my own workout. I’m still missing the […]

Casual 6 miler

The whole run was only 6 miles in around 54 minutes, making a 9 minute/mile pace – clearly not my best. Although it did involve several breaks for rest, waiting for my […]

Setting challenges

Lazy weekend I think… As predicted it was a nice lazy weekend. I think I’m going to need to get back in to doing a long run on Sundays: I had no real excuse either as it was a surprisingly nice day. Today I was planning on doing a lunchtime spinning class; however the instructor […]

Another Friday

Lunch time spin today and football (come on England!)… The lunchtime spin was interesting. Unfortunately it wasn’t the usual instructor and so wasn’t as good. He seemed to have very lower resistance on the bike so was actually bouncing during the sprints, which is a really bad idea – oh dear. Also two whole tracks […]
