Diana - I wish they would let me work from home more often. My boss (female) works from home 2-3 days a week but likes us to be in the office (one rule for her; one for us!). My company are supposed to be reviewing flexible working generally so perhaps there will be an edict from on high which will overrule her and allow me to be more flexible too.
BIW - hope you get that problem with the IT provider charging you sorted out.
Redhead - sorry to hear about yesterday's horrid 10 miler because of breathing probs.
HS - well done re that 18.5 miler and today's recovery run.
Columba - well done re your LSR (with added fast bit!)
I'm usually glued to athletics on tv but the Commonwealth Games and European Championships have passed me by. Don't know why but suspect its the overkill of too many hours of coverage and time to fill and the resulting dire commentary from the likes of Denise Lewis that puts me off. I'd rather have less coverage and do away with 'pundits' stating the bleeding obvious Making tv programmes too long and then having to fill them with fluff or repeat what they've said (like some documentaries) seems to be a disease that tv suffers from these days
I surprised myself on Sat. I managed to do 7.25ml and to be honest, I wasn't sure I was capable just yet as I've only been back running for a few weeks. There was a lot of background noise in Cirencester Park where I ran as there was a "Tough Mudder" event going on (10mls with lots of obstacles and mud).
I surprised myself again today. I worked from home so have been out and done just under 4mls. When I checked afterwards my average pace was 9:48mm - I've not been able to run at that speed for ages!
