I hope whatever it is gets better quickly, WP. Might have been the hill reps, I suppose, - do you often do them? They are the one thing missing from my son's schedule, probably because it's aimed at a race which is mainly flat.
Out early again this morning for an "easy" run. Then spent from 11.00 till 1.00 handing our leaflets to people going into Tesco, encouraging them to donate food items to the local food bank.
BIW - Arctic animals are often white (polar bears, arctic foxes etc.) - maybe Charlie's white fur means he's adapted to arctic conditions hence can't cope with the heat. Though come to think of it, reindeer stay brown, which rather undermines my argument.
I only recently got an iphone, and haven't tried sending pictures from it. It's really rather wasted on me; I hardly do anything more with it than I did with my old phone. - But the mapping facility is wonderful! "Where am I, and how do I get to where I'm going?" and there it is on the screen, showing me exactly how to do it.
Ray - your 800s are MUCH faster than mine! "Easy" run this morning; rest day tomorrow; and 17km (oo-er!) long run on Sunday.
.. and it can't be comfortable to tighten it very much.
Musing about tattoos, and BIW's remark that white tattoos are very difficult. Wondering whether a white tattoo would show up on a black person, or is it just that white is a difficult colour to inject into the skin, regardless of the colour of the skin. Then it occurred to me that I've never noticed a tattoo on a black person, and maybe it's only the white races that go in for them. My younger daughter has one on the inside of her left forearm; I was a bit horrified when she had it done, but as tattoos go it's quite a tasteful one, a sort of twining-plant design, not "heavy" in any way.
At least piercings are easily reversible. Just take it out and let it heal. Youngest Son had a spike in his lower lip once; it looked horrible, but now you'd never know it had ever been there.
Lovely picture, BIW, but as Red says, we would like to see the actual tattoo on the actual person.
Warm again here today, but early afternoon there was a terrific rainstorm (not thunder, though) which has left the air much fresher. I did a before-breakfast tempo session, 2km in what was supposed to be 13mins 40 secs, 2 mins walk break, then the 2kms over again. The first one was a bit too slow, but the second one was done in 13mins 35s.
Graham - it must have been awful, running in that heat!
Aws - there are hills round here that I can walk up faster than I can run up them. (Not really sure how that works). Like the picture. One of your reflective ones.
Still pretty warm first thing, so I was out before 8.00 again for my tempo session. 2km warm-up, then 2km in what was supposed to be 13min 40secs, 2 mins walk break, then do-it-all-over-again. I did the first 2k in 13:53, but the second in 13:35. PT son has now sent me next week's schedule, cranked up yet another gear!
