I’m seeing a pattern forming

Posted by on May 3, 2010 in 3 Peaks | No Comments

Well the blogging has gone on the back burner in recent weeks. I’ve been developing a website at work, and as always, obsession sets in as I opt for the path of most resistance in an effort to learn how to create functionality way beyond my capability. It’s an effective way of learning, as sheer […]

Time to refocus – with a little help from the family

Posted by on Apr 12, 2010 in 3 Peaks, Family | No Comments

Had a great weekend this weekend. Spent a day with John and Dan in the pub on Saturday watching the Grand National, the Chelsea vs Villa FA Cup semi-final and ‘El Classico’ (Barcelona vs Real Madrid) – all the while putting the world to rights.

Well, I never expected to keep up with dad’s every day posting, but felt I needed to get something in, despite there being little to report after my training plans fell foul to the man-flu over the weekend. I’m back on the up now, and the daily walking is continuing. I’m seeing some excellent results […]
