Week 39

Day 267 – Friday 30th November 2018

A beautiful sunny day. Did the last session of week 4 of my Couch to 5k. No problems, added 3 minutes to the final run with 10 seconds of Usain Bolt at the end.

After lunch we headed out to Portimão.

Portimão is a big town, a port, and the one way system was a bit of a nightmare. We eventually found the front and had a stroll around the Rocha beach area which was very quiet.

Christmas lights are up

Day 269 – Sunday 2nd December 2018

Another beautiful day, a very sneezy day and another lazy day

This is Frankie, a 26 year old Hymer in absolutely beautiful nick.

Day 270 – Monday 3rd December 2018

Week 5 of my Couch to 5k today but I didn’t know if I could do it because on top of sneezing all day yesterday I had a rough night’s sleep. My legs were dead after the first run but I managed to finish the session. Felt shattered afterwards though.

Fell asleep in the sun after lunch but managed to stir myself to go on the camp’s Nordic walk.

Everyone else had poles but I couldn’t join in the silliness.

Julie came along to petanque and she did okay.

She shoots….

She scores….

She does a little dance!

Day 271 – Tuesday 4th December 2018

Another beautiful day; did nothing but sit in the sun.

Day 272 – Wednesday 5th December 2018

Boiling day.

We walked along the coast to Burgau for lunch.

Only took us a couple of hours.

The Christmas decorations in Burgau

Every bar restaurant was closed!

This was open last week

This café attached a mini-market was the only eatery open. They did nice toasties and I enquired about some chips but the lady told me they only had a licence to grill food. In what kind of country do you need a licence to make chips?

Got the bus back to Luz; that was a palaver.

Day 273 – Thursday 6th December 2018

Yet another beautiful day.

Day 2 of week 5 of my Couch to 5k. I was supposed to do some 8 minute runs today but I know on Day 3 I have to do a 20 minute run so I thought fuck it just go for the 20 minute leg today. It wasn’t too bad although I couldn’t manage any Usain Bolt at the end.

Sat around in the sun all day until it was time for petanque…

Me, Juan Carlos & a German lady beat a good French team. When I say beat I mean stuffed 13 – 2 😀
