make sure work pays you back

It's been a tough week this week.

Alot of entertaining, thinking, talking, showing, explaining, justifying, projecting, reviewing, mapping, noting and bonding.

And I gave it my all.

Worked paid back the 2 hours it owed me to change into spiked shoes, run down the high street in the sun light, over the river, along the bike path to meet David. Then round the boardwalk in the marshes, along the squirrel trail, uphill to fforest farm, then back along the bridle path above the Teifi,  scramble down 100 steps to the rivers edge and then push on home through the mud and brambles to our Cardigan shop and a great coffee.

Make sure you take honestly what it owes you and you'll no feel cheated.

Gonna try and get the office to run on Thursday.

following Ades' run blog

Following Ades blog I went for a run, well it was my first for a long time and I don't have natural ability in my legs like Ade, so it was a run walk type thing with my dog.

I will get into it but it usually takes a few weeks.

I had a few issues with the ishuffle thingy too, but I found the off button pretty sharpish.

I started at my local beach and ran around the cliff, down onto the beach, but where I could usually cross the stream across the stones I coudn't because of all the flood water, I love that when the  conditions cause humans to do differnet actions than they planned, makes you feel so small and insignificant. So anyway I went back along the road to the woolen mill. I run by the old mill quite a lot, its called Melin Tregwynt and its famous for its weaving.  http://www.melintregwynt.co.uk

It used to be powered by water and you can see  where the water was channeled into the mill, George found a channel and thought the white frothy stuff was snow, so he went for a bit of a swim when he stepped on it. I took him home and gave him a nice warm shower and now he's all fluffy and recovered.

I'm off for another run tonight around the cliffs thanks to Ade for inspiring me to get back into it, I always see beautiful scenery and have an adventure because of the weather and the conditions whether it be rain wind or sun its always different.

first run

Went for my first run since September today round Mynydd Caregog above Newport. The snow had drifted deep, but where it was melting there was raging torrents, the wind was robust and the cloud snug to the floor.

What a blast. My mind has not processed so many thoughts in 30 minutes for so long.

1. shake to shuffle on the i-phone is rubbish for running.

2. Melt water is cold, but wet snow is colder.

3. Summer shoes let your feet  get warm as soon as they are out the water.

4. Wild horses look at you like you are mad if you are on the mountain in bad conditions.

5. Tread lightly and reduce speed on deep snow.

6. All that beer I drunk in December weighs heavy.

7. David Hieatt would have thrashed me today. I wanted him and Molly along.

8. Cold thighs run slower.

9. Running somewhere beautiful is beautiful.

10. Warm  dry clothes are such a reward at the end.

11. howies have made and will make some amazingly technical kit. (Ran in the long way home shorts, 2 NBL light base layers, the 8 miler jacket and the new bike jacket for spring)

12. Music helps a hard run.

13 Bad music don't.

14. The effort to get up, get out and run in awful weather is always worth it.

15 . The track on the map is not always where it should be in real life.

16. The farm dogs bite is worse than his bark.

17. Cows with horns and babies need back of the head eyes.

My goal this summer is to pick a great place to run and run and run and run and run...

Yesterday a lovely woman came into the sample sale after reading the blog and invited me out for a running tour of Manchester centre.

So we met at the BBC at 8.30am and ran 3 1/2 miles round the back streets. Down to Deansgate, over to the Northern Quarter and back.

So nice to blow away the cobwebs of standing in a shop for 12 hours.

run rabbit

i have been meaning to run to work for ages. could i really do it? how do i get home?

so this morning i left home just after 7 and ran the 10 miles in 1hour 37.

the road bits where horrible, but once i got into the woods with the mud, stones and roots i felt fine.

and the last mile with cardigan in sight and the smell of coffee and cakes on the wind i was tripping.

you don't get that glazed eyes and dig deep feeling biking in.

the bet

Whilst I have been off the bike I have been running to keep the waist builders at bay.  We have a great route through the wildlife park. About a 5 mile loop.

I was flashing my running shoes to Ed who runs our Cardigan shop and a bet was struck.

A race for a fiver.

From the front door of howies Cardigan shop, into the wildlife park, up the river, up the Gorge, into Fforest farm, down the Squirel trail, back along the boardwalks to the shop.

Winner takes all.

He is fast (we had a race up many flights of stairs and he thrashed me) and has the heart rate of a shrew, but I have an 18 year advantage of pain management systems on board.

We will race before March ends...

Don't forget, this weeks T-shirt of the Week is ‘Run’.


I like to run.

But I am not a runner.

I am not training for anything either.

I do not look at the clock and think a good time means a good run.

In the same way as I don’t sing to get to the end of the song.

I just like to run.


Available on Purple tees for men and Electric Blue tees for women.
