The boys were playing with my phone and Seb managed to get a great shot of Isaac.

Bristol, Millennium Square. A rare moment of blue sky and calm after the stormy weather of the last few days.

Only one candidate for today's photo of the day. It has to be the shoe collection. I gave my new Asics Gel DS Trainer 19 shoes their first run. Shoes lovely. Annoying niggle in my left leg not so much. A frustrating period of cross training and rehab ahead.

Seb's homework this weekend was to learn something(!). So, today we learnt about making bread. We woke up the yeast with warm water, fed it with sugar and then it blew bubbles to make the dough rise.

Normally I'm all in favour of glorious clear skies and amazing views of stars. But for some reason, tonight is probably not the night. Maybe it's got something to do with sleeping in a tent in the edge of a tiny village in the middle of the Brecon Beacons.
Fortunately there is an excellent and warm pub. I cannot wait to tackle the real ales in here tomorrow after I've earned them.

Worryingly, this is one of the things I'm most looking forward to for the ultra this weekend. Homemade granola bar and totally guilt free consumption.
PS it is actually cut into 12 pieces, but I could probably eat the whole lot as one Wonka sized scoff.

Some days there are only small things. The sun sets and the trees outside my office pick up a tinge of orange.

I forgot to post this yesterday. A very cold and wet cycle ride into work. Fortunately I was alone in the office, so nobody minded me drying my socks!

There are lots of choices for today's image. Homemade pizzas for lunch being devoured by the boys, Seb & Isaac charging around on their wheely bees, or our curtain rail falling off the wall. But, for its extreme rarity, the winner is the bucket, sponge and ever reliable Turtle Wax for my semi annual car valet.

A quite possibly far too detailed report from my first ever ultra marathon: the Likeys Brecon Beacons Ultra 2014.

Winter running season has arrived. Ran home from work in the full get up - hi-vis vest, head torch, garish buff folded into a bandana. I'm not deluding myself into thinking I ever look good running, but I rarely look this bad.
On the plus side, I got to try out my new merino base layer ahead of the Beacons Ultra race a week on Saturday (you have sponsored me now haven't you?). Even though I've mainly bought it for sleeping in because I'm camping the night before the race (why make things easy on yourself?)
