Bespoked Bristol 2015


Our lives have changed recently, for the better 🙂 after the arrival of the new addition to the family, but we still managed the annual trip to bespoked. Luckily this year the show returned to its original venue in Bristol close to Temple Meads Train station.

The show didn’t disappoint, and Nate behaved himself so we were able to make the most of the stunning bikes on show. This year I was particularly focused and on amazing paint jobs on offer, a selection of which can be seen in the gallery above.

Wobbly yoga

I have attended a yoga class now for roughly the last 15 years, but only practice once a week, (I’m hoping to change this) each class has never really defined the type of yoga practiced just a generic yoga class, although I have since learned they have all probably been a derivative of Hata yoga.
I currently attend two very different classes one focuses heavily on breathing exercises particularly analoma veloma – alternative nostril breathing and kapalabalti – blowing feather off nose breathing. The other has changed quite considerable since I first attended a few years ago, each asana now seems to in corporate pratapana practices (what can only be described a wobbling in each posture).
At first this slightly bothered me, now it has got to the annoying stage.
I’m unsure if there is any added benefit to moving within a pose it just feels quite alien and a little awkward. I think I must have quite a purist approach to yoga trying to go as deep as possible within each asana whether I’m losing out because of this I guess time will tell?

Another 85 miles under the belt

Strava you are so evil!

So a new month a new Gran Fondo challenge, determined to be more prepared this time we planned for a 9.30am departure with no extreme drinking the evening before, even with England kicking off their first World Cup game at 11pm.
Different route this time, depart from Worcester towards Stratford into the Cotswolds and back to Worcester via Evesham, inspired by the excellent route planner Terry.
It was a bit touch and go whether my battery on my phone would hold out for the entirety of the route, it just can’t cope with being used as a navigation devise for 6 hours and did die just past the 80miles luckily my faithful Garmin held out! Imagine doing 80 miles and having no record of the journey!!!
