SUN, Sun, sun – Lovely weather

I was meant to be abseiling today, the event is cancelled until further notice. I’d raised £79 online (through friends sponsoring me – Thanks guys) and its already paid to the charity automatically online which seems to have missed part of the point.

Anyhow maybe it will go ahead someday. Tis annoying when you put money up for events that fall through.

in the park

Gorgeous day, lovely sun – a little breeze. I decided to go on the bike for a bit – after about 20 mins felt out of breath. So unfit – really need to sort that. I looked over – I was close to the park so rode over and chilled for a bit.

Deep blue sky, bright green trees, lots of kids, animal, adults and bikes including me. People lazing in the warmth of the sun taking time out.

Its good to sit back, read & relax and watch the world some days – Like the animals & kids falling in the fountain. Entertainment all around us.

Glad I brought the sun cream out, its quite warm out when sitting/laying about.

All in all, was out about 2 and a half hours, enjoying the weather on the bike and headed home and had a mini BBQ – Delicious.

On my Bike..

A friend gave me a spare bike he had. He offered me it sometime last year and I got around to collecting it last week. I got a hand pump and blew up the tyres and checked the breaks. I dont have, lights, a lock or a helmet but last time I rode was before helmets.

I went out for a short time this saturday afternoon. It was a suprise I couldn’t do it right away – my balance and co-ordination was all over the place – after a few minutes it came back to me how to do it so I guess its true you always can ride once learnt.

It was harder work than I expected and there were lots of gears, last time I had a bike was the early 90’s and I had 5 to 7 gears max – I kept clicking through them on this bike by accident and realised why people dont wear jeans much on bikes (it gets caught)

Its another fitness thing I should do, I am so unfit now to how I used to be. I remember when young and little being able to ride for miles just for fun not for the exercise but actual fun.

Now I lack in energy to do it – think my diet has a lot to do with it and were not so active anymore – even at uni – drove to uni but it was walking all over campus and taking the stairs (I hated the lift) and it didn’t matter if I was on 2nd floor or 10th I still took the stairs.
