First run! :-)

First run out of the year this morning - only a short sighter of about 10 miles or so to check everything is working as it should before planinng some longer runs.

Lovely sunny morning, and I was pleased everything seemed on point apart from the need for a new battery.

Anyone else enjoying the weather?

Lovely looking car - I'm sure I saw it parked up in Twickenham a few years ago! If not the same it was very similar - same colour, wheels, and a T reg.

Had my first run of the year today - bit late in the year as I usually drive throughout the winter, but this year the roads have been so wet and mucky that I couldn't be bothered. The only down-side was that all the roads seem to be populated by s-l-o-w drivers. I wasn't out to speed everywhere, but I would have liked to have been somewhere near to the legal limit. I had a learner doing 30 or less in a 60 area, followed by a tanker doing 40-ish and slowing for every possible reason, and various other examples of dismal driving. I am no nutter on the road - in fact, I'm quite a laid-back, cool and collected driver - but I do get riled when people drive without consideration for others on the road.

I always dread the first nice days in Spring - you can be sure that all the oldies will be out of hibernation for their first drive of the year, probably moaning that driving isn't the same since they took the man away with his red flag...

... and relax!

I had another run this morning. It's amazing how different the weather was this morning - as sunny as yesterday, but bl**dy cold! Yesterday I was wearing light gloves and my hands were nice and snug, but today I wore the same gloves and my hands were freezing after just a mile or so. Glad I was only going out to book my MOT at a local garage, rather than going for a long run.
