cough, sniff, run

My friend Chris is back from Canada. He is the one who got me back into running two years ago. Despite snot a cough and a fragile constitution it was time for the first run in 2 weeks.

He has been working out there for the winter and running ultra marathons and 100 miler. We went for a quick hour round the cliff path.

We left the road from Poppit sands and headed out around Cemaes Head on the Pembrokeshire coastal path. The ground is bone dry and dusty, and the heat over the last few weeks has bought out the 1000's of flying insects you see in the picture. I had to pull my merino over my mouth when we chatted to avoid swallowing air plankton.

We stopped just round the corner 150 meters above  a beach called Traeth Godir-Coch that you can only get to by boat. Over 50 seals were on the beach as it's mating season, and we would see at least 10 in the water. (the i-phone pic was too awful to use)

With the sun heading into the ocean we cut inland through the footpaths and lanes to complete the loop.

I got to ask him the burning question that has been nagging me since reading Born to Run. Can I run 100 miles in the next year. He told me about his highs and lows. Diet. Calorie in take. Kit, training and mindset.

It's mind set.

So I need to sit down with a pen and paper over Easter, work out the plan and book a place on a 100 miler.

If you are out here ever, run this place. The light and the tricks it plays on the eye are worth the odd fly in your eye.

Long weekends.

New T-shirts

The perfect t-shirt needs:

Two sleeves.

A hole to put your body, arms and head through.

A good print on it (something funny or thought provoking works best).

And then all you need is a little sunshine.

Every t-shirt needs some of that.

This is Peace Plane, one of our older t-shirt designs. But as relevant now as it's ever been.

The idea is simple, and we think it's pretty well summed up by Mr. Edwin Starr here -

Have a peaceful weekend.

I had a pint with James from Fforest at the end of last year and he told me of this adventure he'd just done with Al Humphries and James Bowden (who does our photography) that's just popped up on vimeo.

Take 3 minutes to have a watch and then plan your holiday to Cardigan.

Have your spray...

the Epic Trousers are flying off the shelves at the moment and to help them fly even faster we've set up a little instore demonstration for everyone to try out. the trousers are perfect for those spring showers, when you want to keep dry and look smart, cycle to the pub, walk the dog or even go for a quick jog around the block. they also come with the added bonus of a reflective strip on the right hand side which you can have on display to keep you safe and sound whilst you're out after hours.

here's some more info to wet your appetites...

Epic Chino - http://www.howies.co.uk/product.php/3811/132/

and if that wasn't good enough, the Outsider trousers currently have a £10 discount for the next couple of days.

we're here to help...

we've had what we think to be a good idea over here at Carnaby Street, as i'm sure you are all aware from browsing the products on the website we do try and put a few outfits together to help you with your shopping decisions and give a little inspiration. Unfortunately it would be impossible to put every combination together, so if you have any outfit requests send us an email to carnabyst@howies.co.uk or post underneath this blog and when we have a spare 5 minutes one of us will get dressed up, take some pictures and show you what your chosen outfit will look like.

Boiiinnnngg, spring is here, so we've brought back our T-shirt of the Month feature.
This one is called 'Rest Less'.

Fight that need to pullover. Ignore the temptation of a cup of tea and some cake. No time for energy bars or isotonic what-nots. Got to keep on.

Some days the only thing you eat are the miles.
