The hour broken

Goldenberry summit view over Cumbrae

I ordered a camelback thing from Chain Reaction Cycles yesterday early afternoon first class post and it came this morning, now thats service! There're good those chain reaction people. Naturally I thought I'd get out for a short spin on the MTB but when I got to the bike the front tyre was flat, then as I was puting on the wheel I noticed the front disc pads were worn to the metal, so it was 40minutes before I actually left the house. It was lovely out there a nice breeze kept me cool on the tough climb up Biglees Quarry in lovely spring sunshine. A bit of downhill from Biglees, a loop over lovely Goldenberry hill, a beautiful wind assisted cycle along the beach track and a slightly naughty return through the glen.

Later after a mid afternoon stroll through Kelburn with Anne I decide I'd do a bit of running from Portencross over Goldenberry and back, in the end I was out running for 68 minutes, wow! haven't done over an hour for years, not only that I felt quite good! There's a reason for the training though....but thats my little secret for now.

Some portencross pictures here.

Short video of our old cat enjoying the spring sunshine.
