Jo Pavey rocks I enjoyed the athletics yesterday. Looking forward to the summary of day 2 - especially the decathlon. Those guys are awesome.
Been a bit busy at work, so I missed posting on here.
Chicka contemplating (very losely) a day trip to Hamburg, do you think I can see enough in a day to make it worthwhile?
A day is pretty short for a big city but if you stick to the harbour area you can still see loads. Book a sightseeing tour and a boat trip - that should give you quite a good feel for the place. The Portuguese Quarter is only a block away from where the bus tours/boat trips start and it's a good place for a nice bite, away from the tourist traps. Avoid those (along Landungsbrücken) at all cost. Let me know when you are here. Maybe we can hook up and I can take you guys to our office (right by the harbour area). We have a huge roof terrace overlooking the whole city. It's one of the coolest places to be. If there isn't a client event going on it's available to all employees
Hope the police interview went as well as these things can ...
Just home from fracture clinic and the news is not good. It wouldst appear that once my lungs are strong enough to take a anaesthetic (4-6 week) I need an operation to replace the ligaments in my shoulder and repair the collar bone which will the require about 6 weeks of rehab. Oh, and I have arthritis in my hips.
very sorry to hear, LMH. That's not the news we wanted to read... sounds like a long and painful road to recovery
I have found it good to run post work, I need to get out of the company of medics and debrief with myself. Yesterday was not a great day work wise- trying to not take the bad work days personally and leave then at work.
I think that's a good strategy, Dibs. Running clears the head and it's hard to get up at the crack of dawn coming off a nightshift. So running to wind down sounds like the way forward.
Why: did a longer run yesterday
Last hard: n/a
Last rest: Monday
