So, as of today Im going to aim to post everyday with 3 things - a photo, a link to something I like, and some rambling nonsense whether that be my training log or just random shit that is in my head.

So starting today off with a photo and a video of an EP I was recommended

Birthday workout

So it was my birthday on Saturday and I had a great day, friends over at night with cake , whisky and more cake!

I got some great presents - 3 bottles of single malt that you can see above, tickets to go see the comedian Frankie Boyle, a superb hat that has speakers built in to it and some birthday pennies!

I also did a 5km run down at teh Strathclyde park that is on every week and organised by Park Run. My time wasnt fantastic - 24mins 30secs, but happy enough with it. Will try and do it again in 4 weeks and see if I can beat that.
