My eyesight is rubbish, about -4. Always worn contacts but this year have started to move to glasses. For years I wouldn't even consider stepping out the house without lenses and now I'm even running during the day without them (never run in glasses). It is compromising but not so bad.
9miles on road in my vivobarefoots. Haven't run in them for a while. They're normally quick but just under 1hr8. Couple of quicker miles near the start but can't sustain it. A lot of effort for not much speed. Stopped at a crossing and started to feel my breathing getting tight. That's still not properly resolved. No true pace in my legs right now. Or distance. Hmm. Losing a few pounds might not be a bad idea. Boo.
Is there any universally accepted definition as to what "hard brexit" actually means? I've heard it used to imply quite a few different things recently. Or are we in the murky world of amorphous facts and words that mean something, nothing or anything as and when it suits?
Please stop with this self-regarding shit about the "ordinary real people", living in the "real world". You don't get any special claim to authenticity for not having done much, it doesn't magically imbue you with homespun wisdom, nor is your life and the lives of those around you any more legitimate than any others. An appeal to being "real" is a conceit to invalidate any opposing position when you've got no substantial arguments left.
Let's hear it for the extraordinary people, the people of unusual talent, ability and intelligence. I feel much safer with them in charge.
Well done Andrea and everyone else. Very foggy this evening. No animal shaped litter that I could see, but then I couldn't see a bloody thing. Down some unlit country roads bordered by fields and even with the torch the fog was diffusing the light so much I could only make out a few feet ahead. It was eldritch. One slightly more visible bit took me passed a field of sheep all standing perfectly still, like they were doing the mannequin challenge. Anyway 8.1miles in about 1hr01.
Did a 25mile bike ride this morning too. My feet get really cold. I'm enjoying cycling now and thankfully it doesn't seem to physically impact too heavily. I can double it up with running or gym work. It's as if the body treats cycling and running as completely separate things and one doesn't seem to detriment the other. As yet...
Puzzled over swit's post a few above - who won a cat? Isn't that an inappropriate prize? I am an idiot...
