following the hair of the dog
The festivities have begun. Yesterday afternoon saw the in-laws host their annual christmas drinks soiree. Many nibbles and tipples were had and my winter holiday waist line is now making an appearance.
Since Blackie's arrival I have hardly done any running of note. And today was no different. For a change of scenery I took Jane to Cannock. Very similar to Sherwood Pines but with hills and steeper downs. I was a bit apprehensive about riding singlespeed there but actually it wasn't as hilly as I'd remembered, so there were no embarrassing walks of shame!
A few good hours of twisty steepy fun and we got the bikes washed before we came home. However, I am itching to get out in the hills and off the waymarked trails.
