I had another four day week last week, I have to admit I am enjoying them. We took Friday off to visit the boat, we haven’t been up there since November last year, we were lucky because we had a very mild winter and Martha was in pretty good shape because of this. We also had a partial eclipse on the way up, unfortunately it was so overcast we never manager to see it, we just noticed how dark it got. By the time we got to Stalham the cloud had gone and we had a beautiful sunny day with a temperature around 13c. The boat was in good shape so there wasn’t much for me to do except play ball with Alfie, no matter how I try I cannot wear this dog out, he even had a swim. We had a pleasant evening but by the time we went to bed the boat was being blown about a bit so I didn’t sleep very well. The weather was miserable on Saturday so we had breakfast and set off for home.
Sunday I went back out on the bike, it is still a struggle but I did push it a bit more, I managed 8 miles which is still bugger all compared to what I used to be able to do but I have to work on my fitness first. I am getting used to the bike and I have to say the brakes are the best I have ever had on a pushbike, they are discs front and rear. I managed to burn 675 calories which will help. The plan this week is to do a midweek ride, or at least a turbo trainer session. I am feeling a bit better on the bike and hope to keep this up.
I dusted the road bike off today and can’t wait to give that a blast when I drop some more weight.
I’ve been pretty quiet on the radio over the past couple of weeks but I did manage a QSO tonight with Miguel (EA2CFR) near Pamplona in Spain.
