I did cycle to school and back on Thursday, and my legs were HEAVY. I was quite surprised. Today, we had a beautifully-paced spin to Bunmahon, where I turned to Kilmac and Mahon Bridge with a first-timer. Just over 35 miles, at an easy 14mph pace. Slept soundly for the afternoon, and missed the All Ireland hurling final. Tipperary beat 4-in-a-row Kilkenny by 4-17 to 1-18. The five-in-a-row dream (Drive for 5) proved impossible. I’m delighted for many many Tipp fans, including Mam and Tim, Eddie and others. Their first title in nine years.
After last Sunday’s 100 mile bike-spin, this week was appropriately devoted to rest. Well, rest from the bike anyway! We completed our extensive school renovation at 8pm on Tuesday just in time for Wednesday kick-off. We had a TERRIFIC reaction from all pupils and parents. Many in the local community also came in for a look and were impressed! Three days of teaching went very smoothly, and then the weekend again!
