No matter how good your intentions, or how important a project is sometimes things happen and life gets in the way! For the past week I’ve not managed to run at all due to a twisted ankle, and I’ve not had time to blog due to a crazy work schedule. These last 2 days both of those 2 things have been stressing my out, and I’ve been worried that I’ll not achieve the goals I’ve set for myself but this morning I decided not to let it get to me, and just deal with it!
While I’ve not be able to run I did swim last week, and I went cycling on a very nice Cannondale tandem on Friday. As I mentioned in a post last month, my father in law is going to be cycling from John O’Groats to Land’s End for charity in the summer, and since he is blind he is riding a tandem. His partner for the trip is away on a climbing trip so I offered to cycle with him so he could keep up with his training.
It had been a long time since I rode a tandem, and since his new Cannondale had double sided pedals (flat one side, SPD on the other) I decided to wear flat shoes. That was a good decision, since finding your balance when pushing off on a tandem takes practice, but after a couple of hours I got the hand of it again so next time I’ll wear clipless shoes.
I also made time to get out and about on Saturday. It was our wedding anniversary so Cress and I went hiking on the south coast. I was a little worried about my ankle, but in fact it wasn’t a problem and we did a new route starting at Rinsey and explored the cliff paths around there. We climbed down to an isolated little beach for a picnic lunch, and generally saw several groups of climbers out on some great looking granite faces… Definitely a cool spot to explore any time you’re in Cornwall!

As for blogging, the reason for not having time to get on here is mostly due to launching a new product/service for my business – Speedy Websites. I’ve been developing the duplicateable sites over the past month or so, and last week we did all the promotions and launched the site. I think it will still be busy for a little while longer, but it’s not as crazy as it has been so hopefully I can find more time to blog from now on… but when I don’t have time, I’m going to try not to stress about it!
