Good stuff Ray! Not been on the bike for a week, and missing it...

Got a full marathon in October, so training for that...

Me too. Breakfast around 11:30am. Had a hard ( near-death ) walk on the mountains south of Bala yesterday. Failed to reach the summit ( 400m away ), staggered back to the car at approx 7pm.
I'm thinking of starting an 'Exercise Fail' thread.

Ouch! I broke a couple of toes playing football years ago so I know the hurt - and how it makes you very sensitive of people in your 'personal space'.

I hope it mends quickly.

It's either a very small penny-farthing or you're a growing lad Mr. Bass...
