...and the beat goes on...
First day back at work over............and I feel like I have been run over by a bus. Tougher than anticipated.
Audrey and MM - another one here for the pink pen
I have had the emails re the Barcelona Marathon too and it looks fab, but I seriously doubt a spring marathon for me next year unless its very close to home like Lochaber! Chicago in the Autumn is being planned meticulously be BF....................I probably should start worrying!
Off the Florida tomorrow - looking forward to my long (16-20 mile) run on Sunday next to the beach. Then back home I'm afraid.
Today's word of the day has a few asterisks in it...
That there's a Volvo-shaped dent in my car. The other end has a Fiat shaped dent in it
Eggy, Kaz - how's things feel tday?
what happened Weedy..? you ok.?
Was at a roundabout last night waiting to pull out. Volvo came up from behind and shunted me into the Fiat. Neck's a little stiff this morning, but it should be fine in a day or two, fingers crossed. Other two drivers seemed okay. Caught the Volvo coming at me out of the corner of my eye in the rear-view mirror so I had a split-second's warning, but the Fiat driver didn't have a clue what hit her. She was in a bit of state, bless her.
Hey ho, these things happen. We're all alive, we're all insured. Pleased I never got round to washing my car yesterday morning
Not good Weedy, Is everyone ok??
Eggy - I hope your feeling a bit better.
Today, I am very sore. It is not my stomach thats sore thou as I would have expected but my legs with standing in one place, freezing cold all day.I have 9.5 hours of it tomorrow...........
Junior has netball this morning so I have 2.5 hours to kill. Time I would normally go running, but today it is going to be a mega long walk in the snow.
No weedy-shaped dent, though...
kaz, isn't that a bit of the ' ankle-bone-connected-to-the...'? Your legs aren't usually sore.Standing for 9+ hours can't be good.
Mmmmmmmm ATM, possibly a case of changing posture to take strain of my side kindo thing??
Another thumbs-up for Barcelona from me. Did it last year and it was absolutely fantastic, I'd only done the one marathon prior to (Edinburgh in 2011) and it made that look like a village fete fun-run. The atmosphere, the build up, and the course itself were unforgettable experiences.
Think it started at 8.30am, and it was still dark on the walk down to the start line, then whoosh, at about 8am, the sun came up, the music was booming and it was like a kaleidoscope of colour!
Cheesy and predictable I know, but they played Freddie Mercury's 'Barcelona' beforehand after hyping it up on the mic; "This is OUR City, this is OUR song". It was proper hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck-sticking-up stuff, everyone in the pens was buzzing!
Thanks Bedders - that's my mind made up
Orbutt - I've had a bit of chat with DLR on email, he's still with us
The 2013 supporters guide is finished and sent out to those that PMd me. Pete burke, you didn't include your email so to make it a bit easier. Anyone can translate and email me on "radar underscore sal at yahoo dot com dot au" (no, I'm not australian).
Eggy - get well soon! I've had a stupid cough cold for the past few weeks and it sucks. Last night was the first time I got 8 hours sleep in ages. Felt soooo good!
and in running I ran 7 kms today!!! and as yet nothing appears broken. YAY! am way behind any schedule but should be able to manage a toodle around with kaz and orbutt (and DLR & NB if they appear).
If I survive this rubgy "match" that is....
oh be quiet you in the multiple 20 mile run cheap seats.
