It's the little things

So things have been a little slow for me this year in regards to fitness, usually I have rowing to focus on in May but not this year, I've decided to do what I want, when I want, whether it's biking, surfing, swimming or running. This is a lot different to having a schedule, and I like it, it's all the little things.

I have been out on my bike almost every weekend since the Christmas holidays for a "bike ride", I'm not training or trying to loose weight or aiming to get mega fit, I just want to go out, feel the air in my lungs, the wind rushing past me as I go down hill, admire the veiw, spend time with my friends, and feel great afterwards.

I like to go to some of my favorite spots near where I live, up past the farm all the way to the top, checkout the view of Goodwick and Fishguard harbour all the way up to Cardigan, carry on down the hill to the other side overlooking the lighthouse and  a massive expanse of sea, along to a famous comedians house. Then take a sneaky right turn to an amazing lookout point to more sea, a different angle this time looking down to St Davids head, and Ramsey Island and finally off to a little village near the woolen mill and back to our house for tea, cake and curling up in front of the fire.

We have been out with sheet ice on the roads (fun on a road bike) northerly winds, the usual grey drizzle and really warm sunshine, now shoots are popping up everywhere and there a new-born lambs hoping around, it's nice to notice the changes from the bike instead of the car, and the evenings are getting lighter so soon there will be evening rides too.

I have also been working on the bike, well, testing kit out thinking what's good, what's bad, what could be better, what ingenius piece of kit doesn't exist yet, and recently have had some of my comfortable rides ever (shh all in development I'm afraid) but it makes such a difference to be comfy.

So all these things are little, I'm not training for anything I'm just going out for a "bike ride".

Life is complicated, sport is simple

Ramsey row

Our rowing club had visitors from another rowing club at the weekend.

They came from Devoran in Cornwall and one of their longest members Ralph Bird was the man who made all our Gigs. 

We decided to show them the local sights which we love but we had hoped the weather would be good but we didn't expect it to be the most stunning conditions we have ever seen going around Ramsey Island.

Here are just a few amazing photos, thankfully Steve had his camera charged and ready to go on the water as words couldn't really describe it.

Words we used to try and describe the water was milky, glassy and silk but they don't do it justice really.
