Apologies (again) that I've not posted lately - have been lurking and popping to read when I get a few minutes ..
DianaD - think you're off to Glasto today. Hope it all goes well (and doesn't rain too much). Van is looking great by the way. Well done re women's 10K result.
JJ - best wishes to Mrs JJ.
Exhausted - I've never been to Glasto (festival) but made a point of climbing the Tor when I was passing through a few years ago. I remember "Cloudbusting" by Kate Bush (Trivia time - I think Donald Sutherland was in the music video. He was in "The Dirty Dozen" which was filmed near my hometown and I got his autograph. I was about fourteen at the time!)
Redhead - can't say I'm surprised that the PM didn't have time to listen and it was mostly a PR/'press the flesh' exercise for him.
HS - I used to do Ceroc (modern jive) for years so know how to dance rather than just jigging around at discos. Trouble is, Mrs Wm didn't do Ceroc (she doesn't 'do' dancing) so at wedding receptions I still don't usually manage to find a partner to dance with. I saw Quo many years ago - I say "saw" - they were so loud when they started we went outside and sat in the car park with the windows wound down and it was just right (this was many years before noise-limiting devices).
BIW - pleased to hear new wetsuit is as good as you were hoping.
It was warmer than I would prefer for walking at the weekend. But on my C2C holiday I won't have any choice. So I did another double-whammy of two days walking. I was on call on Saturday until 2:30pm - managed to get out for a quick 9 mile walk afterwards. Set off on Sunday at 8:45am and got home at 5pm having done (drum roll ..) 19 miles. My feet were a bit sore afterwards but there were no blisters this weekend. But I did get bitten by a horse-fly and have a lovely big lump on my left shoulder.
I've not done any running lately - my head is full of preparations for the C2C at present so if I do get out it will be a head-clearing jog around town.
