Commuting to work - kind of
Friday, July 05, 2013
Today I only had a Wire Fox Terrier to walk, twice. Nothing else in the diary so we commuted down to Jasper's to walk him. Wymondham to Jaspers is just over 12 miles. From there we rode another 7.5 miles to Wroxham and had lunch with the tourists (Roast turkey and lots of veg, no spuds) and then back on our bikes and went to Jasper's the pretty route as we were early and walked him for another 30 minutes.
From there we headed home, the pretty route as we didn't fancy the Hethersett Road on a friday afternoon. We went up the Marriotts way, through bowthorpe, Bawburgh, up Stocks hill and home via Little Melton.
46.08 miles covered in 3:36:52 at an average speed of 12.7mph which is a whole lot better than sunday. Actually its about the same average but I didn't feel like I was dying for 2/3 of it.
I feel great. We took jelly babies with us for instant sugar when necessary and topped up our water at every opportunity. I climbed 633 feet, which doesn't sound much and it isn't but I am a rubbish climber.
Only one little incident, which made me laugh actually. Some woman in the Kings Head where we had lunch, said to me "You shouldn't wear lycra with your shape". I replied that they didn't make lycra big enough for her size. Sheesh, what is it with some people making snotty comments when what I wear is chuff all to do with them. Silly mare, she probably has a dreadful life and no friends. Poor woman.
Off to walk the dogs now.
