Over 60s training.

Did some muddy run/walks yesterday and today. It was hard work.
Builders start tomorrow.

Kierrah will be wanting commission if she introduces a buyer. 

You made a wise decision. The colds that are going round can drag on for a very long time if they're not managed carefully.

Great to see you making real progress again. The extra 14 miles will be a big help.

You will probably benefit from 3 lighter weeks before the race.

Do you mean you did the bust in the morning and the rest of it in the afternoon?
I'm envious of anyone who can draw/paint. I can't even draw matchstick men.

Finished preparations for the builders at about 6 pm today. They arrive tomorrow morning.

Did  muddy walk/runs yesterday and today. Quite good fun but very tiring.

Getting round a half marathon is beyond the scope of almost all the population so no worries about the time.
Are you a forefoot striker? That style of running puts extra strain on the achilles and calves. If so, you could maybe benefit from some muscle specific exercises.

Wolf Hall is based on a novel rather than historic data. Still very good though, especially the lighting which makes many scenes look like Holbein paintings.

Hastings is good for affordable housing and it's definitely on the way up.
Is Bernard changing his job?

You really are going through the wars with injuries.
What weight did you fail at?

You should grow several inches taller after that run.

Maybe the chicken soup is good for giving colds rather than curing them?

That'll sort out his sinuses.

Manic here. We're trying very hard to get everything ready for the builders to start on Monday. Still being troubled by the Planning Dept. who don't seem to talk to each other.

Nice steady way to restart some racing. Good training too.

Sold the house yet? Where are you likely to move to?

I'm sure your umph level will be up there with the best.

Lisbon is one of my favourite cities. The main museum (Gulbenkian?) is one of the best I've seen. My former employer used to sponsor the old trams.

Daughter and granddaughter for lunch today. Tomorrow we're in London for lunch with elder son and family. It's tour of the grandchildren time.

Don't bother with trying to save the perimeter beading. Just buy some more. It's quicker in the long run.

Belated good luck wishes. Have a good one.
Turner exhibition at the Tate is well worth a visit.

Elder daughter has had lots of root canal work done and complains bitterly about the discomfort. I'm glad you found it bearable because I've had similar work done in the past and found it not too bad.

Younger daughter and granddaughter came down for lunch today. Great fun and no work done. Off to London tomorrow for lunch with elder son and family.

Nice gaff. Right up my street but a bit far away for a holiday home.

I 've watched every episode of The Voice and you don't seem to have appeared yet.

Looking forward to your race report.

You seem to have switched suppliers very easily really.
