I’ll let the photos do the talking ….

However you can play spot the red kite



Not sure what the hell was divebombing me on the left of this photo!


Google “autotuned” this photo – Not sure if I prefer it … Looks a little too bright

To think I almost didn’t

Got home from work and it was cold, blowing hard and looked like rain. I was sooooooo close to staying in the warm and having soem food, maybe do some stretching, take it easy. But I knew deep down I wanted to go out and would love it once I did. It’s the first step. So off I went into the wind for a quick 4 mile run.

The bridge building continues apace, now they’re chucking rocks in because its better to break an ankle on an unsteady rock than get your precious shoes and clothes muddy…. sigh

Anyway there was just about enough sand to run the mile stretch before the tide swept me away

Note narrow strip of sand – GO!

I found I can now cruise even into the wind at around 9 min miles on the sand. On the way back I was doing 8 no problems.  I’m only doing short stints like that as I don’t want to blow up anything in my legs so don’t worry I’m being careful and listening to my body!

Some cool clouds for SRG
The view back from the fields on the way home

From shit to sky

The blog that keeps answering the questions you never needed to know the answer to anyway!  How long a run up does a seagull need to get airborne?

This far …. We had some sort of weird seagull race goin on I think

Just 4 miles done today to start to break in these

Dynafit Feline SL- I couldnt resist on ebay as someone was selling them as unworn as “they dont match my jeans …..” I mean really wtf? So basically I’ve rescued a pair of trail shoes from a life as fashion victims for low cost!

One thing about getting wet running to and on the beach is that you dont care about lying in streams to get good low down photos of sunsets.

Cold but worth it
Last of the sunlight
