Sunday after the gig


When I do a North-East gig I tend to spend the following day having a rather chilled time, but not today. My new cardio routine means I like up to at least 30 minutes good cardiovascular workout every day – so today I did it on the bike.

One thing I have noticed as I get more and more exercise is that my heart rate stays much lower even during really strenuous sections whilst I still stay very well oxygenated. I have to say I’m liking this feeling already!

I took the Burley trailer up there as we needed a new steam mop. Not bad – the last one lasted almost 6 years! – and we’ve also decided to get an air fryer to try and reduce our electricity bills by running the oven less.

I suppose journeys like this demonstrate that you don’t always need a car.
