Jack had a busy birthday weekend but we still managed to get out walking to a place none of us had visited before.
Out looking for snow on the hills. Fair weather was forecast, but it doesn’t even last the journey to the start of the walk.
Any excuse to go back to Three Cliffs Bay.
We removed last years nest and the remaining failed blue tit egg, ready for a new family to find and move into.
2016 was a pile of crap I don’t want to repeat. But 2017 is here, and if we stop looking to the future we’re going to walk into something or trip over our own shoelaces. Or fall down an open manhole. Or step in front of a bus.
XTERRA is coming to Wales in June! And I’m really looking forward to it and thoroughly (well, almost thoroughly) enjoying the start of my preparations and training for it. Anything can go wrong in XTERRA, with crashes and usually demanding terrain throwing the unexpected at you. It’s long and tough in different ways to a standard distance road triathlon, and the weather can completely change the conditions for the day overnight. it’s hard and it’s difficult, and those are two different things. Training is similar but different. Preparations are similar but different. Great!
