The joy of hills 

Finally a picture of the new mtb, the seat is up a little high I must add.     

This was where we spent a super few days last weekend, at a friends wedding. I even managed a run along canal to take in some of the Oxfordshire countryside. A Beautiful place.

This week has been crazily busy but I managed to squeeze in some good runs, mixing a 5km,9km and a 12km run in with a good session on mountain bike. The latter of the runs was on hills in knockma, a place I mentioned before, but is perfect for hill repeats. I really enjoy the hills, it’s just a shame I’m an hour from most by car. Today myself and a friend cycled a 55km route with some nice climbs included, far more interesting than cycling on flat busy roads I reckon. 

I have to mention the Womens World Cup, a very underrated tournament with some great games and top class players on show. 6 games left and if you haven’t had a chance try catch one at least. A great French team lost to Germany on penalties last night, or p.k’s as they call them in states. Very unlucky for French as they were top class throughout. I will be in Vancouver to soak up the atmosphere during thefinal! 

So Canada awaits this week as I hit for British Columbia for a month. I can’t wait to sample the hills/proper mountains out there! I will post photos as I go and hope to keep fit for gaelforce west in August after I return.
