Rewards for grafting.

This entry is only to log the training ride this morning and to detail the content for future reference of a rather nice smoothie.

The wind is still blowing hard. hard enough to throw you side ways as you pass by a gap in the hedge. After yesterday's exertions, I chose not to head out into the wind, but cycled across it, gaining some benefit from it out and back.

The hill circuit north of where I live meanders up and down the Yare valley. With a few exceptions, one of the few places where the relief diverts from flatter than flat.

Anyway, it was fun to be out again if not a little hard on tired legs.

The smoothie I had when I got back, a just reward.

1 banana
1 orange
1 kiwi fruit
A handful of white grapes
A dessert spoon of lemon curd
Half a carton of cherry yoghurt
1 small bottle of fresh squeezed orange juice
