Mileage this week is a new record of 128 miles and my weight is a new low of 18 stones dead with a 2 Ib loss. While 2 Ibs might not seem a lot, to get to 18 stones is a massive psychological positive for me. I seemed to hover around 18 st 2Ib for ages and now to be 1 oz off 17 stones is brilliant. I now need to get rid of 10Ibs to reach the 5 Stones loss mark by June the 30th. Which as we all know is 1 of 2 challenges I have in June. The other is a 100 off road miles. Thanks for that Phill.
The pedal home yesterday was over the Beeches via the QE. It's a shame my Muvi is dead as otherwise I would have 2 scary incidents for you to see. A woman in a VW Golf passed me that close that I wacked her side window. That woke her up, she obviously didn't know I was there and a bloke in a people carrier turned right across me to get into the QE hospital 300 yards later down the road. I had to swerve into the hospital to avoid him, he just smiled at me and drove off. The life of a commuter eh? Or nearly the death of one.

It's wee weeing down here today, the TV Virgin Box is broken with no engineer due until Monday, seriously thinking about going back to Sky as Virgin have been crap. Great Broadband, shite TV service, this will be our 4th new box in as many months. So it'll be DVDs then.
I'll be off to my Old Rugby Club later to watch the Guinness Premiership Final between Tigers and Saracens as we have no bloody telly here!
Have a good Bank Holiday weekend folks!
