Phew, yesterday was a day with a difference! The temp in our garden mid afternoon was 45c on our garden thermometer, half in the shade, half in the sun. I didn't even attempt a run. What was lovely was our choir session is a lovely air conditioned room, which some said was cold, to me it was perfect, but what was even more pleasant was walking, at 9.30 pm into the outside and finding the air to be balmy and warm. How often does that happen here in the UK, about twice in a 5 yr period!!
I hope your X-ray produces a result that you are able to deal with.
Errrrr what is going on, all those jobs turning up on the same day. Not fair!!! It is a good job you are a good handy man. I actually worded that sentence differently and had to change it, it included the words hands and tools!!!
Take note of note to self!! no I don't mean The Stoop. The Scoop is a very large sunken amphitheatre. I have never seen it as yet.
Not so warm this morning after a very sticky night. So I ran 3.5 miles, I left the house with temps of 22 c and when I returned home it was 28c, now it is 32 c again. But I am starting to get used to the higer temps
Good stuff on your bike but I can well understand the dehydration factor and the resulting tiredness. The heat came over night, no build up in order for us to get used to it. Your paid working venture did indeed seem to include a lot of stressful travelling. Perhaps your blood blister has come as a way of stopping you testing your Achilles when it's not yet ready for action!!
You have had a few more days of hot stuff to get used to than us in normally of late wet UK. Yes I do indeed need to keep fit for my contouring social activities. Your training is coming along nicely.
A hilly holiday and hilly running and you are happy
We don't go to London that often, but it is nice to know it's there. It takes me as long to get into London as my friend when she travels down from Northampton. My train stops around 8 or 9 times and hers is pretty much direct. You seem to be managing your knee well.
Cardiff has had a lot of money thrown at it and has benefitted well. I havnt been there for some 50 yrs, but I remember liking it even then. I enjoyed your photos, you most certainly have got about a bit. Ludlow is lovely. Hardly surprised to hear your body said NO!
I ran yesterday, early'ish down the tree lined trail and it wasn't too bad but by the time I was having my Pilates class at 4.30 I had had enough!! Heat no problem. Humidity huge problem. Last night was awful. I couldn't get comfortable or cool at all.
I had my eldest grand daughter staying last week, we had a lovely time.
The weekend was just for us and gardening and house work!!
This afternoon I am going very shortly to a tea party!!! It is to view someone's new garden, I have made a carrot cake with a frosting. However, the frosting just melts when I try to put it on the cake which has left me, after a thin glaze on the cake, with a bowl full of frosting. Butter, cream cheese a load of sugar and orange zest!
Thursday we are having lunch after choir, end of term outing. Saturday we are singing at our local town's summer fair. Then on Sunday we are singing at the Scoop and taking part in the London Bridge Summer Festival.
Thunder storms must be imminent because it it very hot here. Temps around 32c.
Have caught up with reading 3 pages of posts. All interesting. Can't possible comment on them all so I won't!!!!
I have, as usual, been very busy socialising with not much running at all. Hyde park concert, brilliant, but exhausting! Opera at the Coliseum, amazing. Hampton Court Flower Show with my daughter was excellent, the sun shone for us. A story to follow on that one. Then my family came for the day on Sunday, it rained! but a good day was had by all. I find that I just don't have the energy to run as well as expend energy on social stuff!!! Shame but there it is. I enjoy running, but have to accept how I feel. I have just run 2 days in a row, and now feel tired. But I have Pilates tomorrow and then my eldest granddaughter, is coming to stay for a couple of days, so no running then. She has just had her school Prom and I can't believe that my little girl is now a beautiful young lady in every way.
Lots of knee talk. I was told like TS that I had minimal OA for my age, but that was 5 years ago, so no doubt it is more than minimal now! Columba, my Dr told me not to run but my physio encouraged me to continue.
You have made fab progress since your op. Shown by your park run. Sorry to hear that Mae hadn't been too clever.
You certainly gave a lot of energy to your wife's wheel chair
You continue to amuse me keep it coming. When I read these words "am a shocking traveller: I can't sleep in hotels, drink too much if I'm by myself (and I don't mean rehydration), get anxious about train timetables, get easily lost and return feeling totally awful. And that was just Bournemouth!" I am a bit like that except for they drink too much! Another good Parkrun.
Getting faster, every second counts!
Pleased to hear that the girls made up! Makes life easier for you!
A great athletic CV
Agree about the weekend sport, fantastic. We recorded the tennis and managed to watch it Sunday evening without hearing the result. But felt quite drained afterwards!
My story about the flower show. We ate in the Seafood Restaurant, with a price to match the seafood. Service was good, in fact too good. After our meal we left and about 40 mins after we have left I suddenly turned to my daughter and said oh my goodness, we didn't pay. So we rushed back, wondering if someone was about to tap me on the shoulder and say, caught you at last!!! We reported in and found that no none had been aware of our non payment. The boss man was called and he was so appreciated our coming back to pay he gave us a class of Dom Perignon (worth 20 squid a glass ) each before he presented us with the bill!!! Phew, that was a close call.
