Why do I get the feeling there's something lurking over the horizon?

Good afternoon/evening

nrd

Didn't get up at all early this morning having slept 10 hrs, with just two short breaks, one for the loo and one for a drink. I was hit by the onset of a cold Wednesday pm, most unseasonal and totally demoralising as I've had nothing of the sort for 3+ years. I've dosed it with honey and hot lemon and rebuked it frequently all to no avail, although as I write this it seems to have improved somewhat. It's not troubling me apart from the runny nose and the blow to my pride (thinking I had them licked after all this time). So this morning's intended run was scratched.

Well I'm not HRM dependent, I don't even look at it whilst running and when I'm doing rw, which is the way of things just now, I only have the timer showing. I publish the figures because the Garmin records them but I don't take much notice of them otherwise.

It was nice and cool this morning with scarcely a breeze - ideal running conditions, well for me anyway. Nearly free of 14s but nearly three of them. How's that for a paradox and a pun?

Sorry about the formatting I had to copy it out by hand as Garmin Connect wasn't connected.

Columba - You've got the idea, can we now stop going to this disco?

Chris - Sorry to read of your fall. Bin there, done that, and it's healed up now. I don't run in woods though. Glad you and your daughter liked the Liquid Moonlight pic, it was a favourite theme of mine a while back. Tell your daughter I'd be happy to do another.

Columba - A disc of masking fluid on the paper as opposed to just a circle.

(What do they teach them in geometry these days?)

I started out on my 7-miler then there was this thunderstorm, see? Then it saw me and dropped everything right where I was. So there I was, dripping all over and legs turning to lead, so I thought, "7 miles? Ferget it." So I commuted it to 4 and just about made it back all sodden and drippin'. At least the lightning didn't get me.

Columba - Yes, except it was a disc. 

'Grats on the swim, btw. Practice floating and you won't get so worn out. I believe the old wives' tale that most women don't sink and some men can't float because they're too dense.
