Would love to get back on a bike at some point but storage is a issue in our place and there is no way I'm clogging up the shed with bikes ;)


My last word will probably be
"Whoops"
"Now, get off my lawn!" :angry:

Not much done on the logging front but out in the Olive groves I have hit new highs on the bike. 63, 64 minutes used to be okay...then 58 something last week and 57.35 today. Strava tells me i averaged 29.5 kph... If i could get 50 per cent better before July... And keep it going for 4 or 5 times longer.... I could be in le tour de france! Happy memorial day!

No beer or fags so far this month! I bought a mountain bike on Friday. A nice change of pace and scenery.... And away from traffic.
Friday... Mountain bike
Saturday... Mountain bike
Sunday... Mountain bike

38 degrees cee today! Maybe no bike... Could be a wod... Definitely a dip in the pool!

The pool is 10 x 4 metres... Water is currently clear but it can be a pain balancing ph levels and chlorine levels... June heat is drying out the olive groves and cooling breezes have a habit of dropping dust in the pool. And its the time of year for little white moths to throw themselves into the water overnight... But when the waters not green and the pool is not full of rotting local wildlife its great to jump in.... Like today..

20 mins slow trot in the groves
Tabata burpees, one arm db cleans with 26kg,hr press-ups, planks.
30 mins blast around the groves on the mountain bike....quick dip in the pool!

I cant help myself! Could you imagine if we Americans called cigg's "Bell-ends"? Or more to the point, "Rent boys"? :D

 

I had to look up British slang words to find these  :lol:
