Stung inside mouth by a bee (not dead yet)

Posted: Yesterday at 14:53

Yeuck!  *shudder*

Not stinging stories per se, but I did once take a large swig from a can of Fanta which I had left out on a warm day.  I counted 7 wasp body parts in the sink when I spat it out, but I'm not sure how many whole wasps that related to.

Another time I was hit full on by a bumble bee when doing just under 40mph on my bike.  Thank heavens for sunglasses.......................

Why am I not faster?

You'll probably find that the speed comes back fairly quickly if you start running regularly again.  It's muscle memory/conditioning in your legs that's missing, rather than aerobic fitness, which you probably have in spadeloads with all that rowing.

Run 3 - 4 times a week for 3 weeks, then try again.  You'll see a big difference.

Yep, think I did a lot of risky things in the past (more so after my first marriage broke up - so I was late 20s but living on my own for the first time).  Not quite as risky as your Russian trip though CM!

I just can't imagine what the girls parents are going through.  Or at least I'm trying not to.  I was actually sobbing last night putting my two to bed.  How anyone can ever move on from that, I don't know.

Another Mapmyrun user.  I don't often listen to music, but I do have my headphones in for the voice updates only.

Bleh.  Headache I woke up with hasn't shifted so I'm binning my planned lunchtime run and heading out for a walk instead.  On the upside, if I ran I'd be spending half my lunch hour changing/showering, but I can be outside in the sunshine for the full hour now.

Jeremy Clarkson is sacked!

So the head of the BBC and his family have had death threats, and the chap who was assaulted (who didn't report it and who isn't pressing charges) is being abused on Twatter.

What a great country we live in...................
