The wrist has improved a little.

I have also noticed that ITV are showing all the races from Royal Ascot next week, so well played them. Tuesday through to Friday have no interest as I am working but all six races on Saturday, including the Queen Alexandra, which is, at two and three quarter miles, I believe the longest flat race run in Britain. Well let's just say I am tempted, very tempted.

The Mongol Derby is an equestrian endurance race. The race extends 1000 km through the Mongolian Steppe and is known as the world's longest horse race. The course recreates the horse messenger system developed by Ghengis Khan in 1224. In the 2016 race, there will be 21 men and 23 women playing the role of the messengers, and representing 13 countries. The exact course changes every year, and is kept secret until shortly before the race begins. The terrain will invariably include mountain passes, green open valleys, wooded hills, river crossings, wetland and floodplains, sandy semi-arid dunes, rolling hills, dry riverbeds and of course open steppe. The entry fee for 2020 is 11,375, and provides the rider access to 25-27 Mongolian horses, a support team, pre-race training, and access to the support stations along the way. Riders must change horses every 40 km at the support stations. Along the way are vet checks to monitor the condition of the horses, and the vets may impose time penalties if the riders push their horses too hard along the trail. To gain entry as a competitor, each rider must demonstrate that their riding skills are strong enough to endure the harsh terrain of the race. The horses themselves are semi-wild, and may not cooperate with the rider, adding one more level of difficulty to the race. Riders will spend thirteen to fourteen hours a day in the saddle, and the race lasts ten days. To complete the race is an accomplishment in and of itself, as only half the racers usually finish the race in any given year.[1]

Is half steps better than a full stride?

I would say not.

Full strides whenever possible

Many thanks to Jack Revans for the idea that I should have had for myself but didn't.

Back to the start but all minus 10 kgs so we should finish this at 130, then hopefully a second attempt should take us a bit closer to where I want to be.

Wrist fine and all easy peasy tonight.

I still struggle to believe that something so innocuous could cause such difficulties and that it could clear up so swiftly. The joys of getting older Billy

Squats tomorrow, and I have not forgotten the incident of the belt and the waistband. The singlet could be a good call for tomorrow.

Assuming of course I rememberUnhappy

The singlet was a good idea, and all of these were fine, some finer than others but the finest of all was the last set again. Happy days.

All went rather well tonight, Ju-jitsu guy finished his squat workout with a rather brutal top set and realized that he has done thirteen sets, he didn't want to end on that so he wanted a dropdown. I offered him 100 x 20 or 105 x 15 or 110 x 10, he took the 100 but ventured that he probably not manage all twenty.

This is not like him, so I listened, he offered ten. I told him that I would watch him like a hawk and the moment his form started to suffer I would call it to an end right there.

He agreed.

His first twenty four were bob on but he did start to lose it at twenty five so as promised I called it. I am much in awe of that man. He'll feel it tomorrow though.

I have decided to have a day's gambling tomorrow, all six races from the last day of Royal Ascot are on TV, so I will buy a racing post tomorrow and have a fun day not moving very much at all.

In another first I have seen a wild hedgehog over by my garage this evening. First sighting of one of those beasties in a very long time.

Are there slot of critters there?
Opossum are scary. You got to have a line of defense here. The cats I feed cover the perimeter from rodents but won't mess with the racoons or possum. The goat is my siren. The dog is the dawg. No critters pass him. Isn't a hedgehog a groundhog?

This is the fellow.

I often see squirrels and the odd rabbit or hare (I can never tell the two apart) and the very occasional fox.

We have rather at lost of grassland at work too and it is common to see the above there as well. Though again, the fox would be rare, and squirrels and rabbits (or hares) very common.

It is a pleasant thing to see gentle wildlife first thing in a morning
