romnonig SVT, morning Woooostershire!

Sun's shining and all's sort of right with the world. Nowt exciting happening, tapir madness is settling in well and uprooting the shrubbery.

Oh blimey, that close!

Where've I put my pom poms....?

How far down do you finish?  (ie how close to me)

Or maybe, remind me what it's called again (is it Severn Challenge?) and I'll go and look it up.

8 days....and counting!!  

Wooocsees You have the relay in a couple of days heading your way. I looked on line who's doing ours. Apparently some one from *Home Town* Bolton. Well thats a local person...not!!!!!   

Ant.....Hill Reps then, not too much of an incline, enough to get the heartrate up though. Say 60-80 metre long. Find one where you have to jog 2 mile to get to. (warmup). Go hard up, jog/walk down, then go again. keep pace/time consistant. Do 16 *up* reps, then warmdown 2 mile back home.   

Today I'm washing the car. then run/circuits. Hopefully am not required to help do friend's home jobs (cleaned greenhouse/help paint huge wooden gate) that hubby should be doing, but he's feeling tired/depressed. Maybe negative nagging is not the way forward, maybe give a list and leave him to it. If its not done its not done. Or do it yourself, but don't grumble about one appreciates a martyr  

Am starting to think.....the grass isn't so green on the otherside.....!!

Crashie - I was thinking "the Monday after Beachy Head? But that's October". Then the penny dropped from a great height.

Mouse - is it torch day round your way?

We've decided to take the kids out of school for the day when it comes round these parts because it's not every day they'll get to see their cousin carrying the olympic torch.

SVT.....excellent idea, take lots of photos. I wouldnt have Ebay'd the Torch if I had done it as some. It would be something to keep and hand down through the family.

Evening all

Musky - Big day?


I doubt I will get to see the torch in Worcester as it arrives just as I get home from work. I am going to see it when it passes by my brother's house on a Saturday at the end of June though.


Lexi - Thanks, I was already doing a hill session tonight.

Ant..... Another session, flat quiet lane (lots round your way)  measure out 400 metres. Do this in 90sec with 30sec rest. 16 times.(I have this thing about 16 don't I).  So roughly 1 or 2 mile warm up. 16x400mtr, warmdown home.

This morning i sunbahed...was rest for treadmill training session his afternoon...NOT!

At the gym I asked for the fan they put in the gym in the summer. Guy on reception Yeh, we do have arrh fan, will get it out soon, its somewhere, probably in the back. Eh? i thought No dear boy...not soon, i need it now am going in the gym...NOW! I explained that i really didnt want to have an Asthma attack because it was too hot in the gym...nope landed on deaf ears me thinks! After 20 minutes on the tready, i gave up, the guy next to me gave up too, he lasted 10 minutes. Even with aircon it was still too warm. Annoyed i decided to go out....ran 8 mile.  However, didnt put any suncream on, already sunkissed from the morning i came back sunsmacked..... I certainly don't need any bed linen over me tonight....body very warm indeed.!!!!

Just read your blog, Crashie, and popped in to say a general 'hi' to the poplace of this thread and on the subject of thinking too much, share my current conumdrum...

Since I was a teeny weeny child, I have pondered where the universe finishes and what's at the end of it. (I once read a marvellous novel about it that I cannot find since, and wish I could, but I digress). Since watching a documentary on the mightly Google the other day and the stuff they know and do (without us knowing, but perfectly legally, the www being a public domain and all that), I have got to wondering if the universe is not in fact the www, for it too is seemingly endless. Which got me to then wonder, are they one and the same and is it perhaps the case that the bods at Silicon Valley are in fact aliens, the www is their world and they are in fact swallowing us by emulating our universe.... And I'm not even tapering for anything....

Min, that's just crazy talk...but what better way to take over a planet than to lure its inhabitants into something they find irresistible..?

I may have to toddle out for a run now while it's still overcast; I was nicely pink after yesterday, so don't want to burn today... < stares at Lexers >

Min - you know how a long race seems like it's never going to end when you're doing it? Also aliens.  They organise events.  Wait a minute.... don't you....?  ALIEN!!!!!!

We went down to see the torch on Tuesday at Harbourside in Bristol. I knew it was coming in by boat, but it arrived and they lit the overnight cauldron in an area that was for ticket holders only, so may as well have watched it on tv at home rather than on the big screen in Millenium Square.

We did have 2  of our three torch bearers at the club last night, so did get the chance to see one up close and personal.
