Running And Cycling

This week whilst I have been off work on holiday I have managed to get out on my bike twice and had a couple of decent but not too far rides. Easter Monday was the hardest as I hit strong winds on the return journey home and it was strong too. I felt good for it even though a little knackered. Thursday and Friday I have been to the gym, I'm trying to start running and spent yesterday running for 6 minutes with a 3 minute gap inbetween for 30 minutes. Today I ran for 30 minutes doing the same running for 6 minutes but a 2 minute gap inbetween. I managed and felt great that I've done it, now over the next week or so I'll try to make the running time longer and the aim is for 30 minutes non stop!

Talking of cycling, I've shaved my legs tonight, the first time this year and it feels good to shave them although I do like my hairy legs, smooth is really good too. Now all I need is some good weather and the chance for me to aim towards a 50 mile ride!

Spend Spend Spend!

Today is good Friday so me and Vinny went into town and we ended up buying a blu ray dvd player. We've been looking at one for ages and the one we picked does hell of a lot and allows stuff to be played off the computer too! Vinny bought the latest Harry Potter movie on blu ray to try out as well. So we got the player home and he rigged it up, it's pretty impressive too, it's a shame we have to watch it on the old tv though, the quality looks great but imagine what it could be like on a digital tv I said.

So off we trot to have a look at digital tv's and thr prices are not too bad so we end up buying a tv from comet and it is the same make as the blu ray so hopefully it will all work together and it is really impressive although we haven't tried all the features out yet. Tomorrw we need to buy a couple of leads and the comptuer can be rigged up so we can watch stuff from there too!
