So, in the girls school christmas play (E has lead role), Harry Hill and Jess Ennis feature (yeah, it just got updated by gazillions of years, deal with it).
J's friend O is playing Harry Hill, he just happens to be Harry Hill's nephew. Harry's brother lives on the neighbouring farm to ours.
Shameless plug for a mate.
Namedropping over. I guess someone will report me *rolls eyes, removes them, juggles and bows low*
I'm supposed to have a 10k race on Sat, I don't know if I can be arsed.
Actually I can't be arsed, we've just decided to turn Saturday over to seeing D's sister and hubby in their new home. They moved today from Cornwall to 20 mins down the road.
Well hey ho... There might be something in 'Run Less Run Faster'. I've been only able to run about 3 times a week due to stuff and stuff and stuffed stuff; but I did 11 miles with Cole tonight and felt so strong.
It was a cathartic run too, I find that if I just take myself out with him and run off everything that has pissed me off since the last run; we come back with halo's intact.
I've decided that 3.10 is a realistic aim for Londinium mara next year.
Yes, I DO have a halo, bought it online from some dodgy site though and it sparks on and off like the proverbial red light bulb. But it's there right, and that's all that counts?
You can buy drugs off prescription so don't judge me too harshly.
3.10 is an awesome aim. Good luck.
I was thinking of your hate of turbos earlier and trying to understand why I am a fan. My only conclusion was time efficency and head space.

I'm probably in a minority and am jealous of anyone who actually can enjoy it because it's comfort cycling, no bad weather, complete control of your training and you can watch a movie... I even ate a roast dinner on one.
However I think because I don't have an intrinsic love of cycling (it's good, don't get me wrong, put I'm not passionate about it like I am running), that I need more to keep me alert/interested. That 'more' is pitting my wits against the weather and topography.
And I only mean comfort in surroundings, not physical effort btw. Everything hurts if you push it.
'but' not 'put'.
Muffin, what do you mean about 'head space'? That you can just turn your legs over and not have to worry; so your brain starts evaluating the other stuff in your day to day life... Like I do with running.
Actually that was a lie to make myself less spiky and more lovable. I'm not jealous, I just don't like them and won't waste any time on them, ditto dreadmills.
Never forget the...
I find running therapeutic, unless it's intervals. I don't find turboing therapeutic in the least, but I know it builds me mentally as well as physically.
I've always thought, and still do, that sports psychology is overlooked and underrated amoung us, the peasants.
Turboing did nothing for me because I didn't let it I suppose. But I managed fine without it, proof that you actually don't 'need' one.
But I'll add a disclaimer here, I might need it if I was hell bent on getting the best time possible for me, dunno... *shrug*.
Cooking for us and a friend tonight, a few beers *might* be involved. It is my birthday weekend after all!
Ok, I've had a very productive bouncy day! I'm feeling really positive about my job and enjoying it at the moment.
I've also just arranged for us to meet up with my oldest bestus mate to take all the kids ice skating in Plymuff on Sunday.
Thanks mate, I fully intend to
And I fully did! Today has been busy, i managed to get 11 miles in with Cole this morning and then the ice skating was good. The kids really love it, I'm wondering whether to make it the official kk family sport. We've decided that now the kids are old enough to pick themselves up and give stuff a go, that we want a sport we can all enjoy and do regularly.
So far on the list:
KayakingRock climbingIce skating
I still want them all to try orienteering, but that might not work as there are things D would rather do than run.
And I'd be good at the running and crap at the navigation (even though I am a qualified orienteering instructor)
