Saturday...off to the dog sanctuary... Sad news... Her place got broken into and they let her dogs loose. We rounded most of them up but some still missing. The vindictive, petty and spiteful way some people behave! She and her hubby don't have much... And hubby is suffering with Alzheimers. Not a great start to their weekend!

With any luck, they ate the guy that cut them loose. 

 

What? Natural selection at work! :)

Grey skies here in Spain. Serious flooding in various areas but did see some sunshine yesterday. I taught a couple of 6 hour English classes in a village about 25 kms from where I live. I cycled back at 10 pm on Friday evening and then out at 6.30am on Saturday morning. I just missed a heavy rainstorm on Friday but got wet on Saturday. On a positive note I found that darkness hides how far you have to go up the hills.... So I just keep pushing until the pedalling gets easier. It works for me!

It works for you because you are a pedaling machine!

 

Someday I'm going to learn how to speak English so I can talk with those "cheeky" types, lol!

Your English is fine... What you say is.... Well, sometimes it is frightfully troublesome to fathom what you are banging on about, old boy :-)

Lots of cycle commuting to assorted classes in the sunny provinces of Sevilla and Cordoba. But starting to feel a bit whacked. Ran in an actual running race on Sunday. Ended up with about 20km under my belt. I should have done less! But it was all pretty slow. "Raced" 8km at about 4.40mins/km. The rest was 7 mins/km. All good fun... And notably pain free on Monday morning.

Steve, I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I think about how you cross the terrain by the miles. i think to myself, "Stu, you lazy arrogant lost fool!! You need to cover some ground!"

 

I'd bet you feel like a boss!
