Tonight we joined martin and susan at "aye - an affirmation of martyn bennett". I first heard his fusion of dance, drum and bass, traditional scottish folk music and, well, passion thumping out of the back of martins car at a cross race. Something about the music hit home, and his story is both tragic and fascinating. "aye -" is a tribute of sorts, by Mcfall's chamber who play some of his music and a medley of some of his compositions for theatre. Fantastic - life affirming and joyous music. Check it.
Yesterday, an urban ride, 1.10 ish in cold dreich. But fine. Today, a quick (?) hour on the rollers.
Part of me is sad this 30/30 is coming to a close, part of me is not. I like riding, and have had only 2 days when i felt that i didn't *want* to ride. That is not bad. But, i do feel its been tougher to empty myself into a ride one day with the prospect of gym, work, and a ride the next day. As a boost to early season fitness it has been great: totally broken down the nihilistic outlook i tend to have at this time of year.
I suspect i will be repeating next year.
