Well where the fuck did that come from eh? One minute we're sitting here in our thermals and a few days later we're roasting our bollox off!
I hit the coast on 15/07 and ran into a few days of scorchio weather! On Friday I cycled from Whitstable to Ramsgate.
It was both very enjoyable and also relatively easy, probably due to my new slimmer physique. In truth I probably drunk less alcohol on the way but nonetheless it was a cracking ride along the coast and the weather was spot-on!
On Saturday I re-fuelled and it was generally a bit cloudier, but that didn't stop me from guzzling a few pints in the morning/afternoon session. In fact I probably over indulged as I didn't make it out in the evening ... what a lightweight!
The weather on Sunday was cracking so after the normal routine of an early start (around about 08:30) and mid afternoon siesta I was back on my bike in the evening and flew down to The Zetland Arms @ Kingsdown which is just past Deal.
After three pints of Whitstable Bay Blonde I made my way back along dark and deserted country paths and arrived back in Ramsgate at around midnight for a sneaky Hoegaarden.
The weather stayed well fine on Monday so I repeated Sunday's exercise and got another 30+ cycling miles under my belt by doing another late night ride to Kingsdown and back again!
I would have loved to have stayed for a few more days but there's only so much abuse that my body can take! I decided that four days was enough and hopefully I can get a few more sessions down there once I have recovered!
+£23.40. I managed to back the fucker in Ireland whose saddle had slipped forward and had to bail for a £120+ loss. Unbelievably the horse then went on to win!
+£139.03. I only traded 32 races today but only had one small loss so I suppose it's a few beer tokens in the bank ...
+£201.26. It's always good to get a winning day under my belt after a few days away in the currant bun.
+£94.30. I traded plenty of races today but just couldn't get going and it was a case of picking up pennies here and there with the occasional win £50 and then lose £50 scenario.
+£150.96. I only traded 32 races today and it was mostly nicking a few quid here and there when I could ...
+£142.17. Another day much like yesterday ...
+£151.84. Another day of nicking a few quid here and there with no particularly spectacular results.
The sun shone today so it was up at the crack of dawn and down to the naturist beach! I had a day of just lying about in the sun and drinking 0% wit beer. A cracking day doing fuck all and even though I slapped on the factor 50 I did get a bit burnt on my stomach and legs. All I'm doing now is looking out for the next sunny period and off I go again!
+£25.30. Plenty of racing for a Monday but I was down early and really struggled throughout the day, only just making it back into profit.
+£310.31. Once again I had a poor start to the day but then had some nice trades in the evening and ended up well ahead at the close of play.
+£151.49. A steady but unspectacular day ...
+£73.13. A real struggle today ...
+£283.58. Only 38 races traded today but I only had 3 small losses and the few £20+ wins soon mounted up.
+£104.51. Although it was a Saturday today I only traded 11 races! All wins and no losses and then an early evening snooze and out with friends for a few 0% beers!
+£132.46. Dumped almost £40 in the first race and then had 20 winning trades ...
