Not long after returning from holiday Juneathon started - yes the summer version of the festival of running/exercise and excuses called Janathon. My efforts were sketchy at best but I did manage to do something every day even if it was only to walk the dog. June always includes the annual Davina Big Sussex Ride. Both of us entered properly this time so Shaun could enjoy the whole experience. I even managed to get my selfie with Davina! A bit slower this year, probably down to trying to find Davina at the feed station, but it's always an enjoyable ride.

We've had a couple of Tribby trips since we got back from Crete too - short weekends at Graffham and Crowborough Clubsites and a long weekend at Salisbury. The weather in Salisbury wasn't brilliant but it was nice to have an extra night away in one of our favourite places.
|finally got to see Old Sarum on Sunday!|
Also in August I took ownership of Candy the Cannondale - a lovely hybrid which I've been using for dashes to Sainsburys and Boxercise classes as well as a couple of longer rides.
A couple of weeks ago we returned to Birmingham for the bike show. Much improved this year as we got the chance to meet Vincenzo Nibali as well as buy some new kit - to be unveiled later - and "enjoy" the VIP lounge.
The cycling and Tribbying has taken a back seat for now while we sell our home of 30 years and look for somewhere to buy. I'm hoping this period of extreme stress will help with weightloss and in 2018 I can start again with the cycling and set some new goals. In the meantime it's time to concentrate on the reading challenge (two more books to read) and attempt to keep my house spotless for viewing. I'm still doing boxercise and spin, need those for stress relief.
I'll be back soon to let you know the latest but it's Ciao for now.
