Let me get this straight. I'm only working if I'm sat in an office all day playing with spreadsheets or compiling a load of mail merge bollocks or being bored in some meeting about a new business idea that's got the wings of a brick? I did wonder about how so many people managed a sneaky contribution onto RW during daylight hours.

I've been sat on the phone trying to resolve diary crises for a team of people so we can get paid by doing fee earning business that's good for both parties. A bit of planning to prevent disasters later. Her indoors thinks I'm playing, and at the moment, I am. See you at midnight, when I've done another hour before bed.

No offence meant Blisters - I often work from home - but am not expected to be doing jobs around the house whilst doing so - though of course being female I do occasionally choose to multi task

Staycelt - CNBA never really an issue but fitting it in was however as I left university and stepped into teh cold and fog the gym suddenly seemed preferable to the great outdoors and all the extra time that would take - which is not often the case with me, I'd usually rather be out when running. Anyway, 30 minutes progressive snuck in between working at work and working at home!

Blisters - I work nights

2 laps course at Last Friday  it seems uphill for majority of lap and steeper on the 2nd lap had a steady paced race i think good start even if a bit congested 5:07. Narrow path on 2nd km kinda got boxed as runner behind went ahead and joined the runner just ahead initially this was ok i could stay behind and have a comfy ride but it was too comfy a gap appeared and i shot through.2nd km in 5:10 onto the 2nd lap feeling it can i do another lap hill is steeper like i said 3rd km coming up forgot to press lap carry on for a mile in 8:18.

Decide to check my lap at 4km 2:02 for the 400m or so well just under. Onto the last km A few ahead of me a couple pass me but too big a gap now to make sure the ones i sense behind me stay there. I hear breathing but i don't look. Stay relaxed arms at side swing said arms see finish line in distance but its always longer than it looks keep going no one overtakes Finish in 25:31 last km in 4:56.

Am i pleased you betcha. considering what little running i've done and how tired i was feeling.

One of the Chasers speaks to me after thanks me for pulling me along that was nice so was asking me what my splits were.

Well done Pammie! I found the two lap course much tougher: I found it all uphill too!

Walked about a mile this morning, but foot wasn't playing ball: suspect there is a reaction to Phys yesterday. So, no exercise bike and less stretching than planned.

Sorry for chomping earlier.
I do like to sneak a bit of a 20 miler in on WFH days, but it was never going to happen today. I did manage to run for almost 2 miles: dressed in normal civvies, (jeans, jumper, coat) I had to nip out to the Post office and local shops, but the car was in for service, and my toy (MG) decided to have a flat battery. I only ran because I found that I was wearing trainers!

Tomorrow's bike ride is cancelled due to freezing fog, never mind the flooded road closures. I think I might wrap up well and go for a run, so long as I'm back by 11.
