I apologise now for the appalling pun in the title... but I haven't been really doing any exercise at all for the last couple of weeks! It's basically just been recovering from Hadleigh, working and relaxing.

Wow, what a week that was. Just the best week I've had this year!
Started off doing a clinical study, leaving, riding Sherwood, then Hadleigh Farm to finish with my first serious biking injury. Also got some exciting new sponsors onboard for next years race season. Good times!



I'll warn you now; this is an unapologetically long blog post....

Bit of a rambling update today, rather than a straight forward blog post! A few musings on the change in diet Lizzie and I have now had for three months, a rant at doctors and as nice (racing) surprise!

While I've been working I've had the chance to talk to other people about mine and Lizzie's choice to move to following the Paleo lifestyle. Trust me, when you work in a predominantly female office, food is always the main topic of conversation. One person in my office has read Robb Wolf's book and has already moved more Paleo on my urging. He's feeling better already!
You might notice that I've said above that we 'follow the lifestyle' rather than 'eat the diet'. This may come across as a bit ranty so I'll apologise now!

I've now had these installed on my bike for around four weeks through wind, rain and shine so it's high time I actually get round to writing a review. I am somewhat biased in that I absolutely love the ESI Chunkys on my mountain bikes, so when I saw these on the Bikerumor article I was very excited.

I am not being brilliant at keeping this updated, it all started so well... I promise to make more of an effort to do weekly updates, I just think if nothing exciting has happened you probably don’t want to read it!
As said in a previous post I’ve been doing some slightly boring clerical/admin work in Ruddington which has been going well, Lizzie and I went up to Leeds last weekend to babysit/ride, I went cliff jumping on the weekend and raced Sunday. Knackered today now though.
