One of my earliest memories as a child is going to Cardiff castle. They have peacocks roaming freely and they spent the entire time we were there chasing and attacking people, including me.

It was every man for himself in that bat enclosure, Skinny. I also had my nephew with me as my brother wouldnt come in.

I have had some uncomfortable experiences. Symonds yat has one of these planetarium places with butterflies freely flying around. I went as a child and got freaked right out!

Recently I went to west MIDs safari park and they had some sort of indoor flying animal section. I took my son in, both assuming they would be behind glass. Upon entry we were swooped upon by bats. Putting aside my parental instinct, I legged it without reference to my son.

Whilst we are considering whether I was unduly selfish towards the troublef driver, let's remember the horse in a race incident!!

The odds seem to be that I've not got fitter, I've just stopped being fat.

Just to be clear, I was sufficiently alert to take stock of the fact he was in the car alone, he looked reasonably well, 50 metres earlier he would have driven past a pub with a large car park, there were a queue of cars behind him trying to get around him, but had to wait for cars coming the other way.

Bob, very well done. Sounds like the pb will hopefully go soon.

I think sporting events are worth the experince and memories. I recall in 2007 i also had tickets for a qtr final in cardiff which turned out to be NZ v france. The French group also had argentina and ireland so all three sets of fans had taken their chances. The atmosphere pre game was immense and then the game ended with France winning in extra time.  That is  day I will always remember.

Mr v- Yes I have considered that this can probably only take me so far long term. I just think it has provided the shake to the system.

Incidentally I was presented with a moral dilema on my run last night and wonder if I made the wrong decision. As I was approaching 3 miles i was climbing a quite steep hill into the wind when a car pulls in to the road side about 100m ahead which was unusal as it wasnt the sort of place where you would stop. It was by no means country roads but there was nothing there. Anyway as I approached he started waving his hands at me so I waved back. As I passed the car he had unwound the window and was trying to get me to stop, probably for directions. Anyway, i mumbled something like 'sorry, cant stop' and kept going. I felt it would have ruined my rhythem half way up the hill and at  crucial tage of the session.

Just wondered what you guys would have done?

Each game is a unique, standalone experience.

My outlay is nearly ??1400 now for four games. You can't put a price on once in lifetime experiences! Of course I'll get half that back as half the tickets will be bought by friends.

Steak barn sounds very nice!

Best of luck bob.

Well done, Tommy. You need to get a half in to complete the set!

Charlie, that would have scared the crap out of me. I don't really like flying things from butterflies through to bats.

I note with exception of Pete, the bronze league have all done one.

I had a pleasing run tonight. Was 5 at hmp. Came out at 6.45 mm without really troubling myself and a heart rate of 166 average. A month ago that route and distance and hr was giving me 7.10mm. I set a 20 second 5 mile pavement pb in the process, just to demonstrate how shit my pb is.

I've also finally just shed a chunk of weight. You will recall my recent issues with the running vest in and out. Well, I went on hols at 11,3 and put on half a stone then had other stuff on which led to more socialising and I peaked about 5 weeks ago at 12,3. Anyway I weighed today at 11,4 so back at point A. Now I want to keep pushing and get under 11 by September.

I was a bit to embarrassed by the disproportionately vast gain to mention!

To add to my joy today, I managed to get in quick enough to get two tickets to both the rugby world cup semi finals at Twickenham. Oddly my wife has been so preoccupied by my selfishness in doing it without discussion, she hasn't asked about cost (??865). She soon forget about lack of consultation then!
