Hello. Ran this morning and knee is still playing up, much better but.....
Maddy's school sports day in a bit, she's doing the 80mtrs again so that'll be me charged out my head again for the rest of the day. I get a bit excited
Go Maddy! Glad the knee is holding up.
I've done very little productive stuff today, have just felt grotty so have mooched a round a bit and took all the dogs for a couple of walks, my neighbour came on the second walk and then sat here and drank tea.
Pup has been over here most of the day with me and C boy.
I woke up earlier and spent an hour writing down my dream, I may inflict it on you later or not.
Still feel lurgified but happy to bimble around this morning with dogs and horses. Muddy already.
Governors meeting this evening.
Hey Pk! How are you?
Good, training for a fall full and getting slightly silly ideas about another IM next year, dunno which one but I got plenty of time to work on things...which sort of means I've managed to fix the combination of some of the physical problems and cba I've had from early this year.
Right now work is kinda busy.... got to drive 180k (that number sounds familiar) everyday....hopefully it'll change soon.
Pk, the only IM distance I could be instantly tempted to train for would be Norseman, but there's no way in hell I could afford it. Other than a lottery win facilitating that happening, I'm not going long in the foreseeable future.
I haven't got a plan for any tris as I'm really concentrating on my running. That said I will get back on the bike when/if the weather gets better/I can be arsed.
Yeah Maddy! And good about the knee mad, just don't push too hard to soon (ooh er missus).
I've had pain in my hips for a few days, not sure if it's connected to this viral lurgy thing I seem to have going on.
I'm sure a couple of hours on horseback will sort that out!
I think that HIM is the best of both worlds as in long enough and more compatible with doing other things....
HIM is my favourite distance of them all, but then the half is in running. It's my best distance for sure.
Took Kali out, forgotten how huge he is, horse mountain. Had to employ velcro bum a couple of times, pigs freak him out and we just happened to pass a whole field of them squealing because they were being fed. He managed a 180 that a skateboarder would have been proud of, but I wasn't going to let him run home.
Another time he jumped and my ladygarden hit the front of the saddle; if I actually DID have a dick instead of just being one, that would have really hurt.
Other than that all well and old friends.
Right, that took all morning, so I'd better sort the dogs out and try and get rid of some of their energy.
Tough life this not being in work for the summer lark
I just got challenged by the Alpha bitch farm dog. Basically she found what can only be described as a bowel full of shit. Sorry if anyone's eating their lunch but that was basically it. Maybe from a deer would be my guess.
So she wanted it and started to bring it home, it was huge and putrid. I told her to leave it and she bared her teeth and growled. That happened twice more, at which point I decided that we were head to head and I had to win. There was NO way I was wrestling a sack of shit from the dogs mouth so I decided to risk a fight and went right up to her and told her with quite 'big' body language to leave it. She dropped it and bared her teeth, continual growling with hackles up.
Because she had dropped I just said 'Good Girl' emphatically and walked off, she trotted alongside tail wagging with not a glance over her shoulder.
So before anyone else says it, that makes me...
I was expecting you to have bitten into the pudrid guts and shake wrestle it dog style... ...ok ok...too vivid imaginations here
Well in the big scheme of having to go to a meeting tonight, choose your poison, i think I've actually drawn the long straw. I have a relatively short gov curric meeting, D is being dispatched to a parents evening at the local comp for prospective new kids and we're both missing the really controversial one. Long local political story short, proposed development in the village.
'Get orffff my land' v 'Build on my land'
I have not got involved, neither will I at the moment. I am glad that I'm not at the meeting as I think it's going to get very heated.
Also, althought there will be effects either way for us, we are nearly 2 miles out of the village, so it's a bit different for us.
Just had round 2 of the bag of shit. You know I said I wouldn't wrestle from the jaws... Well...
Late for my meeting now.
THAT was a surprisingly short meeting. Bonus!
But still lots of stuff to do off the back of it.
The rematch of the bag of shit went as follows; decided to give the dogs a run out along one of the farm tracks, Sally dived into the field where it was dropped earlier and retreived it. Then had the audacity to sit at my feet smiling with it firmly in her jaws, no animosity but iron jaws clamped shut and only a stumpy tail wag in response to anything I said.
(Got to leave this here, something has come up. bag of shit part 3 later)
