Wednesday and Thurday

Todays post comes with a BOGOF offer as will include details of two days due to me being too lazy to do a post last night-apologies!

Yesterday we headed to Newquay and the famous popular surfing beach-Fistral Beach. The conditions were great for surfing but not sitting on the beach as the wind was blowing quite hard and even huddled up against the wind break it was cold. Madam had a couple of hours in the sea before we headed in to town to do some shopping. In the afternoon it was quite warm and the town more sheltered from the wind.

Today we headed to Mawgam Porth again for what will probably be our last beach day as the weather looks set to change again tomorrow. At midday the clouds blew in very dark and black, as we remember last year sitting on this beach in torrential rain we decided not to go for a repeat performance and headed back to the car-quick.

From here we went to Padstow and opted for a car park out of the town that was advertised as being 600 yards from the harbour. It was a very long 600 yards, lets hope the person who came up with this measurement does not take to measuring local fun runs anytime soon! Padstow is lovely except for the tourists who overrun the place I think a certain Rick Stein is to blame for this. We visited his shop, looked in the Cafe window and at the menu and entered the bakery (ofcourse), a garlic rosemary flatbread purchased for dinner, the rest of the goodies just oggled at.

Dinner was said flatbread, Cornish cheddar, Cornish blue cheese and Cornish wine purchased from the local farm shop- YUM.

(Running? Errr No! Ooops! I did get an email from Milton Keynes Marathon today wanting me to enter before the end of the month-could I do VLM and then two weeks later do this??? Mmmmmm)

 

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
