Went out tyre dragging this afternoon again, this time accompanied by mum and the dogs. As the picture below shows Bumble (my 8 year old Australian Shepherd) was obviously enjoying taking part, actually made me walk a lot faster too!
A special thanks must go out to Gary of Heath’s builders who very kindly jigsawed a hole into my tyre to prevent embarassing repeats of snapping rope from friction wear. Being stranded at the side of a country road at dusk with a tyre is not an experience I’d particularly like to repeat!
If anyone is in the South Derbyshire area and can recommend routes or is offering themselves as a training partner, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
