Tralee Park Run Just when you think we've turned the corner weather wise, we're hit with heavy rain, dark skies and unpredictable winds. Now I don't mind a bit of discomfort but sometimes you have to call as you see fit. There are times when cycling in strong winds and heavy rain becomes a dangerous pastime. So you're awake early and a little disappointed at not getting your Saturday morning exercise. You could always turn over and enjoy a lie-in? Too awake! A short spin later in the day around town? NO...this weather is down for the weekend! [...]

Reality starts to bite! With what was a good first week down in #fitforfeb week 2 proved to be a bit more demanding. Things started well enough with a nice sunny Sunday recovery stroll around town and it's park. Later on that day that awful feeling of a cold or flu started to hit me.
