Fungi Foraging

Felt truly autumnal today with a spell of fungi foraging in the woods. We picked at least 18 varieties and quite a few more we have no idea about. This foraging lark is a dodgy business with the risk of a long slow death or a very colourful & surreal evening by the look of some of the little 'uns. I might just stick to the uniformly beige looking selection at Tesco. Did you know there was a jelly baby variety!? Don't taste as good as the real thing though. Anyway, it turned out to be a fine afternoon for a bit of Sunday afternoon fresh air, working up an appetite and pondering the start of training next week.
This easing off seems to tire me out. I've felt a bit achy and niggly in my legs these last two weeks - it just can't be good for you. Here's hoping its just the body complaining that it wants to get back into action. A pretty tame first week back is planned now with the team event at the weekend. It wouldn't do to be worn out now would it...
