Christmas .....

What a time of year, party, party, party with no time to stop. Too much beer and too little exercise makes for a tubby athlete unless I'm careful...
I did the Rhos on Sea CC Boxing Day Time Trial yesterday which was a lot of fun, but hurt my lungs like you wouldn't believe!
I'm just getting back to running after around a month out with a calf injury, and I've managed to get back to my long runs in the hills of Snowdonia over the Christmas period and there was SNOW everywhere, great!
I've had the Carneddau Triathlon Club Christmas Ride which was great fun, despite the atrocious weather. It also gave me the opportunity to meet a really inspirational guy, Martin, who after undergoing EIGHT sessions of chemotherapy last year is now undertaking EIGHT life affirming challenges this year, to raise money for the Lymphoma Association. Way to go Martin!! Read more here
It's my wifes birthday tomorrow, and to celebrate we're going for food at one of the best Italian Restaurants around, Carlo's in Craig Y Don. Woohoo put away the scales for at least another day!
