Evening Leyland Circumference Cycle

A lovely cycle around Leyland this evening in the warm but not too hot weather. Set off not really knowing where I was going and ended up doing 13.5 miles. Thoroughly enjoyable!

A Cycle in and Around Longton

It was lovely weather this Sunday morning and I headed out with my brother around the Longton area for a lovely cycle. Really enjoyed the ride in the flat countryside.

We managed 8 miles after a cycle to get started and it really felt like I could have done another 8. Definitely going to try and make this a more regular thing.

First Proper Bike Ride in Years

The weather this weekend has been glorious and with it being a bank holiday weekend it was perfect for getting out and about. I woke on Sunday and would have usually ended up lazing in bed and then watching football for most of the day. Today was different though as I decided enough is enough and headed out for a bike ride.

2018 Goal Updates – 1st Third

At the start of the year I decided (very unlike me) to set some goals for the year.

In fact I think I would rather call them targets. I am not sure why I like that word better, but I do.

First lets look at what these where:

Record 5k Run

Today was a long day at work with lots to do and to get through. This meant I had not managed to head out for my usual Monday run. After tea and with the kids in bed, I thought what can I do now?

It would either be slump in front of the TV watching football, or simply to continue with the mountain of tasks that I have to complete.

Sunday Morning Short Bike Ride

With the weather getting (a bit!) better, I decided a bike ride would be a good idea before watching the afternoon’s F1 race. I headed out with the boys heading nowhere in particular and we wound our way around Leyland for 4.1 mile ride.

Spring Walks to School

With the weather starting to get a little better (although we had snow again this week) I am able to get out a little more walking the kids to school. In fact I am going to try and walk pretty much everyday that I can – i.e. if it is not throwing it down with rain.

Testing Gutenberg on this Blog

Yesterday I was delighted to chair a session with the core developers of WordPress's new editor and publishing workflow project – Gutenberg. That chat has brought about this post. Let me explain.

A Very Snowy Walk to School

It was lovely seeing proper snow for the first time in about 6 years (as far as I can remember anyway!).

I took a few photos!

Kettle Bell Workout

My wife found some very good value Kettle Bells in the Lidl phamplet that sometimes comes through to door or is collected from store. As usual they were running a new year fitness push on equipment but in there were some Kettle Bells at pretty good value.
