Back home after an impromptu barge holiday! Went to the severn bridge half last Sunday then drove straight to n wales where the boat was. Fab week with no stress, no thoughts of work and no wifi.... Bliss. Even managed plenty of jogging/ running on the tow path on Tues and Thursday.
Yippee to the win Lotte, snuggles with Fay, buying choc for colleagues, running after the horrendous massage Tangy, being bridesmaid and having a nice job (anyone else apart from lotte??)
Boo to sorting everyone elses stuff out at work CM, the Summit, traffic woes, injuries, queues and cost at legoland (defo wont be hurrying there) and head lice!!!
I have another who gets despondent and wont try if he thinks he may lose. Toms teacher kept him down on the marking thing at school as he 'struggled to accept disappointment'.
Severn bridge half was fabulous, could have done with more toilets but i managed with a bush.... Slick organising and huge field so always plenty of people around you (but not too crowded). Ran pretty much all of it with my 60plus club mate who left me for dust over the last mile! She was 2nd in her age cat though. Def not flat which added some omph and of course starting on the actual bridge was awesome. I kissed it as i came back over and finished in 1:54.
