I've got my laptop back with Windows 10 installed and just finding my way around. It seems like I've got to add my favourites back one by one. It's a bit of a pain, as I had quite a lot, and can't remember all of them. I suppose when I need them, I'll just reinstate them. Everything seems to be working ok at the moment, but I don't want to speak too soon.
DBI, good news that your speed is coming back. You have certainly made a quick recovery. Good that John and Charlie arrived home safely. applying for dual citizenship seems to be the best way forward.
Red, thank goodness you didn't get caught up in the dreadful traffic jams. It must have been horrendous for those having to sleep in their cars, especially those with children.
Exhausted, well done with the nifty 10 miler. I didn't particularly want Windows 10, but my computer tech thought that it might cure the problems I was having. The new layout will take some getting used to. Windows 8.1 seemed very straight forward and I don't know why so many people hated it. I believe Windows 10 downloads updates whether you want them or not. with previous versions we had a choice.
I started my run at 8.30 this morning to avoid the worse of the sun, and ran a very hilly forest route. I ran 18 miles with an elevation gain of 710 feet.
Aquarius, Sounds like you are having a good time in London. How did you get on with the parkrun?
DBI, sorry to hear that Nemo won't be able to swim for a while, especially in the hot weather. That storm sounded nasty.
It's been very hot and humid here, and the parkrun was hard going. I was 2 seconds slower than last week in 24.23, a WAVA of 72.32% and 1st MV 70.
I've got my laptop back now, with Windows 10 Installed. I haven't tried it out yet, and will wait until tomorrow.
Lots of posts since my last one yesterday.
WtnMel, I think it will be tomorrow now before I get my laptop back. I liked Windows 8.1, so hoping that Windows 10 will be user friendly. It seems that we all get these nuisance calls from foreign sounding computer experts advising that our devices have a virus etc. I used to play along with them, but now hang up immediately.
DBI, sounds encouraging a 10k run in the woods and then some speed work.
Red, amazing how one workman can get more done on his own. Good that you are still taking it easy. I'm enjoying my increased mileage and now averaging 45 mpw, mainly in the forest. Today is a rest day.
We ran 10 miles in the forest this morning and there was a nice cooling breeze.
Columba, rest is the best healer.
Red, a very stressful day for you. Enjoy the wine this evening. I'll be having a beer out of the fridge.
Missing my laptop and will get it back tomorrow or Saturday.
Writing this on my phone in the absence of my laptop.
I'm running with Giuliana this morning, the first time for quite some time. She wants to start upping her mileage again. It's a bit cooler at the moment, so hoping it won't heat up too much.
