I was out at lunch time for a run around Pollok Park in the rain. I decided to set off and run without looking at my watch and see how I felt. Straight away I knew I was feeling pretty good so ran strongly without going flat out.
It was raining hard right through the run but it wasn’t too cold and there wasn’t much wind. I was wearing my Sketcher Go Run 2 and they felt really good. The first time I wore them I did feel a few twinges in my calf and wasn’t sure they suited me but everything felt good today.
When finished I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had run the 6.16 miles at 7.19 pace with an average heart rate of 139. I was really pleased with that as it felt fairly comfortable. That was the first run for a while were I felt I’ve had a real spring to my step.
Some of our friends have camper vans which are a great idea. We started to look into them but most are out of our price range. I’ve been thinking about selling my motor bike as I didn’t fancy another winter.
So our ‘good idea’ is to buy a small van and put a bed in the back! We are planning to buy a Volkswagen Caddy Maxi ……
The Maxi has an extra foot of space over the standard Caddy which means you can fit in a full bed. I’ve looked on YouTube and here is a video of someone who has made a bed to fit in the back. This one is on a Caddy so we would have a bit more room ….
I’m afraid I don’t the DIY skills to do this but I have a son-in-law who does!! So watch this space.
