... and then all of a sudden it was Friday.  My to do list hasn't got much smaller and I've still not booked cinema tickets.  I am however enjoying my current crop of library books, which are mostly the literary equivalent of popcorn.  

Swim distance recording

While I find it hard to keep track of number of lengths, if I count in distance for some odd reason it's much easier to remember.

Afternoon all,

glad to hear everyone is muddling through.  Still gloriously mild, but run home last night was a bit of a squelchy shoe event.  Parkrun tomorrow and then a 'guess how long will it take 10k' on Sunday courtesy of Happychap. 

Looks like Spectre is sold out on all the popular times at the weekend- do I have the stick-to-it-iveness to brave the 22:00 showings?

I somehow managed to pull both my calves swimming!

I'm prone to calf cramping when swimming, I tend to over-point my feet and vigorous pushing off at the ends also makes the problem worse.  I try to make sure I'm loose in the ankles to try to avoid the problem.

Morning all,

not seen a proper antimacassar in years.  The only shop local to me which might sell them is closing down in January.

Have you exchanged yet Dave?

Hope the sore eye sorts itself out soon Mouse.

I've just checked my local cinema, they've just refurbished and seem to have taken out a lot of the cheap seats and put some 'premium' ones in at £14 a go.  Strewth.  On the upside you can take beer in.

GM- how far/fast are you currently running and what are your 5K 10K and HM PBs?  I'm running Brighton next year and would like a Boston PB (sub 3:30 by the time I get to apply).

Morning all,

re: Spectre, I hadn't put two and two together- there were a collection of Aston Martins outside the cinema near the station last night, had I known the trains were going to be so late I could have stopped and had a proper look.  At the time I didn't realise the tie-in significance.

Not good Mrs F, hope you manage to find out what's causing it and fix it soonest.

Hope the celebratory Wingettes had a lovely weekend, I've only seen a couple of photos on t'social media.

Broken down train on the line this evening, so I'm very behind schedule.
