Looking forward to a good weekend. The weather is set fair and I have quite a bit on. As usual.
Tonight is the Friday trip to the Dodford and with the nice weather we can sit outside and let the Spawn of Satan run wild without annoying the other customers. So it won't be a stressful visit wondering when he's going to kick off.
Tomorrow will be a wander up the cut by the Queen's Head pub in Bromsgrove, this is a pleasant walk and we can let the hounds off and again let the monster run around to his heart's content.
Also hoping to get Munster v Northampton in tomorrow evening. It's the quarter final of the Heineken European Cup (Champions League equivalent to all you weird people who follow soccer out there!) That is still an ongoing negotiation with wifey at the moment.
Last night's pedal home was marvelous, the sun was out and I decided to go a new route via Harbourne, Woodgate Valley over Frankley Beeches, (nasty climb) and around the lanes by the reservoir.

I think with commuting you need to vary your routes as often as possible to keep things as interesting as possible. Even if it's only a turn up a road you've never been up before that brings you out in a similar place. Boredom can be a major obstacle to this sort of thing I feel. I know that has killed many a gym membership and stopped my Turbo trainer career dead in the past.
Weight is still static. 5 weeks in a row!
No pedal today, a meeting at HQ and a site visit...
