Wasn't very boring - went running on Saturday morning, went into town in the afternoon (freezing), went to a friend's 25th at night. Sunday spent recovering and attempting not to throw last night's liquid refreshment up whilst watching Ladies in Lavender in the cinema and wondering why I do this to myself (the hangover, not the film!).

Although, one of the previous weekends involved 7 hours of laundry as my machine is stupid (either that or I am) and not leaving home from Friday 5pm til Monday 8am, so that was pretty bad!

Did loads of washing, did loads of ironing, mopped teh floor, bought new hoover bags, rearranged teh furniture, tried to clean teh carpets (not successful!), cleared up cellar window and ledge, had a few beers, didn't get much sleep.

Oh and I mucked about on the web.

Think that's it.

Went to our industry awards do on Friday at posh hall and got completely trashed! Quiet day on saturday cleaning house, food shopping and dog walking (once I had removed myself from comforting duvet and unclasped my hand from orange juice carton!). But yesterday I did a 7 miler at Stowmarket in 1:02. Not great but not too bad, and then went out for dinner and to see Bridget Jones. Generally nice weekend-shame to spoil it by coming back to work.

Saturday - Hung around in Wickes for an hour whilst some incompitant fool tried to work out something as simple as how to get a matching oven, Hob and extractor out of their warehouse and down to the checkouts. Had a few drinks then went to a nice Thai resturant in the evening.

Sunday - woke up with a headache put off training run till afternoon. Went out onto the Two Moors Way for a training run - mis timed it and ended up running in pitch black. Ran into a branch and now have very big scratch mark and bruising across my right cheek bone.

If anyone else in work today tries to be funny "who'd you upset" "dont tell me you should see the state of the other guy" etc....they may well be nursing there own black eye.

jason you should've been wearing your mask - you wouldn't have ended up with a scratch and bruise and you would've scared lots of people along the way.

my mood hasn't lightened much today - mondays SUCK!!!! next weekend i'm off to the countryside - so it'll be a good 'un. Just have to survive the next 4 and a half days and hope my "bad weekend" hangover mood lifts by the end of today. going for a niketown training run tonight - so that should make me feel better. except just discovered the oxford st. lights are being switched on tonight - so there are going to be massive crowds around oxford circus.

Boring as hell for me.

Friday afternoon/evening reunion with former work colleagues, too many pints of Guinness, difficult sports quiz (at which I was cr@p) and the inevitable take away. Saturday morning - a 6 mile run to Greenwich Park followed by an hour's BMF outdoor circuit session (hell, shouldn’t have had so much Guinness and as for the take away it's definitely not advisable to follow a chicken jalfrezi with an abs overload session....!) - Saturday afternoon, quick browse around Greenwich Market (and a bowl of the best mushroom soup I've ever tasted) then an hour in the office doing the work I should have done on Friday afternoon. Saturday evening, Cafe Uno in Chislehurst for an early evening “runner friendly” risotto (and a not so runner friendly Peroni or two). Sunday morning, up and out in time for a 9:00 a.m. meet with some club colleagues followed by two and a half hours of trail running over and around, up (twice!) and down the North Downs - very tough session but a brilliant day for a run - definitely a good to be alive morning. Tradition dictates we call in for tea and buns at nearby Country Park where there's a really good café, catch a former Club colleague and academic (she’s a university lecturer) trying to hide in the corner reading her News of the World (boy was she embarrassed – some good blackmail material there!). Sunday afternoon –ignored burgeoning pile of laundry and opted to take lady friend for afternoon browse around Blackheath and Greenwich. Lovely bright early winter's afternoon – retreated after the sun went down to pub fireside for a glass (or two) of a nice summery rose. Sunday night, shepherds pie and an hour or so in front of TV - documentary on appallingly tragic events in Sudan sent me to bed feeling very sad – slept badly and consequently am struggling to get through today.

tearfully waved partner off to sail a boat from SW England to NE, so am decidedly nervous, added to good dose of flu bug - can't wait till next weekend and all this is over, he's home and i'm well again.


p.s. is it advisable to run with flu bug? Am s'posed to go for my first run with running club tonite

what do you mean by a flu bug? if you mean a cold, stuffy nose bit of a headache feeling generally lathargic then I find sometimes running through it clears it out.

If you mean flu bug literally, as in hot cold sweats, nausea, loss of appetite and a longing to just park yourself in bed ,then No - definately dont try and run through it.

Bear in mind if you do look ill no one will appreciate you turning up to spread your germs ;-)

yeah you're right, i am a typical hypochondriac and don't actually have flu, common cold more than likely, and thanks for the advice, i'll do the run at least i can then make myself feel better after with a nice hot toddy!!!!

in a word: SPORTS!!!! unfortunately watching not playing.

Soccer AM sat morning followed by one of the best premiership games ever. Listened to Leeds losing on the radio whilst half concentrating on the england canada rugby, then great britain v australia in the evening. Match of the day at night then two more prem games on sunday, but then forced to sit through four hours of NFL (featuring such remarkable names as Willy Williams and someone called Plaxiko - isn't that an industrial solvent or something?) before retiring to bed.

Sorryy yogajogger - just catching up.
It was a kiddies film, and my 5 YO decided it was the one he had to see. I think he's gonna grow up to be a film reviewer.

Hmmmm. He may be able to get me to meet Salma Hayek then. I'll keep taking him.

Wont Salma have gone a bit south by the time your youngun is old enough to fill Johnny Ross's shoes?
16/11/2004 at 00:30
