well here I am at the hotel in London , I travelled up yesterday in order to get the expo saga out of the way , I didn't fancy cramming a train journey to London and fighting my way round London to get to the expo all before 5 pm today , it must leave runners knackered .
It was bad enough yesterday , a 3.25 hour train journey from Exeter turned into 4 hours thanks to signal failure , I then had to get to hotel book in dump bags , then travel across to the excel which took about an hour from where I am staying , the tubes are a night mare , how anyone does that every day in order to get to work I really don't know !
I resisted the temptation to buy a new garmin at the expo , mines broken It hasn't been able to pick up a satellite for the last couple of weeks , so borrowing my brothers tomorrow , I will treat myself to a new one when I get paid
Having come up on my own I was pleased to get chatting to a couple of women at the hotel also running and I joined them for a meal last night
my brother sister in law and 2 friends are travelling up today and I will meet them lunch time , then of course it's off to st James park to meet up with NP Fiona and Jason
having not run further than 9 miles in the lsat 10 days am already missing the long runs ( although I have a very long run tomorrow ha ha ) , and am considering an autumn marathon , maybe Dublin , but I will reconsider that tomorrow afternoon when I will probably say never again ! like we always do . Then change our minds back again within a week
Catch up again later
