Roadie progress

It has been a wet and pretty miserable few days. But with people coming to view the house on Monday, great timing for getting those niggling little jobs out of the way that will really make a difference to the appearance of the house. A final clean up and tidy up tomorrow and we will be ready for the sales push!

But today, with an improvement in the weather, I headed over to Pat's for another gurly outing, but this time on the roadies. And what a fab outing it was on so many levels. We covered 76kms and around 700m of ascent (I don't know the exact stats as my Garmin refused to pick up the satellites - goddam!) from hers at Neylis, through to Belesta then a climb up to the Plateau de Sault which is a truely stunning spot But the best part of today, the very best part, was seeing my best mate getting stronger and able to push harder with no backlash from the gammy knee, keeping up when, before, she has had no choice but to hold back and take it steady so as not to put too much pressure on the tendon..... Ok, yeah, so it's still early days, but it's hard not to get excited about the prospect of having my bestest training buddy back after 8 months in the metaphorical wilderness!
