Why are the weekends so short?
June 1, 2014
It’s the end of another weekend and I still haven’t got everything done. I had hoped to catch up with all of the half-written blog posts that I have as well as doing some additional work for my day job and planning my meals for this week, but I haven’t got any of that done. However, I have done some training (which I will post about soon), and have scheduled some future blog posts as well as had a fantastic weekend. If you want to see some photos of what I’ve been up to, please check out my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/fatgirltoironman
I’ve also been doing quite a bit of online reading. First up is a really interesting blog post about the reasons why Birmingham City Council has given for cancelling Skyride there (a mass participation cycling event). Birmingham has some lovely areas, but it also has heavy traffic as I found out when I tried to run to a triathlon shop on the outskirts of the city. I really hope that people who live in Birmingham urge the council to rethink its decision.
I read this BBC article ‘Does endurance cycling help you live longer?‘ The vehemence and vitriol of some of the anti-cycling campaigners (in the comments) is quite surprising – they seem to forget that quite a few cyclists are also car drivers. I cycle to work every day and am a recreational cyclist, but I also own a car. I try to be considerate of other people at all times.
I also watched this amusing video on ‘The truth of running’:
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
What did you get up to this weekend?
