Exercise

The promenade from Prestatyn to Rhyl..my cycle run this evening

Chris has been working away all week, so I have been left to my own devices . Apart from " appearing " in my own 1970s porn flick, I have been a virtuous little soul and have been building my tolerance on the bike. Monday I did 5 miles, yesterday I did 9 and today I did 5.
I would have done further today but I needed a poo!

    3. I'm more interested in the 1970s porn flick. I would pay 1970s money to see that - if I had an 8mm projector.

  4. It's flat! I thought Wales was full of hills. I missed my cycle ride today because my 'trainer' has the 'flu. I dare not go out on my own in case I get charged at by a wild boar.

    If we had nice flat trails like that, I would be bicycling too.

  17. Well done! I must confess, all joking aside, to being a bit envious. Still too tremoury to risk a bike.

  19. Ah, cardiovascular performance.....you need to fly me over, put a portable CPX system on you, measure your VO2, VO2/Kg, Ve, Vm, HR, EKG s-t changes, and recommend a protocol. We'll either have you in the next Olympics, or, well...in the CICU. But!, I'll be there, providing comfort, when I'm not at the pub.
    Cheers,
    Mike
    Oh, yeah, payment....um, per diem, say 300 pounds/day, travel (goes without saying), and let's say a fee of......400 pounds/per day (you get a 'discount' as a blogger)
    Ta,

  20. Cycling is such a great no-impact exercise. If you can do ten miles, it's not much harder to do twenty.

  21. Oh, the post was all going so well and quite uplifting too.

  22. Has this fitness frenzy any thing to do with approaching nuptials?
