Tough one, Howard. V. tough on your sister, too. Does he remember you ok?
C has already said that when I get old and doo lally she's going to put me in a home . Nice to get that sorted out!
Had quite a boring day, but have got a lot done. After my mega sleep (which I'm going to try to replicate in a min) I cleaned the house, cleared out the spare bedroom ready for my sis from Bangkok to use next week (it's become an IM kit storage room), cleaned my bike, went to Halfords to buy new inner tubes, cooked a bit and researched flights to Nuremberg for C and AR. Tried to watch Dr Who but have totally lost the plot really.
Feel for you Howard.
Good luck with the ride AH. Just cant get my head round you saying "105 this weekend" AMAZING. Very stupid question but where is ROTHLEY?
Not been at work this weekend and not run. Feels very strange. Nice but strange. Ive decided to have 4 weeks off (well sort of) and then decide on whats next . Quick 10k or Venice????
My dad does remember me amazingly.
1.5 miles in 14 mins.
Good luck AH
That's good Howard having your sister there but it must be difficult for her. My dad was 90 2 weeks ago and fortunately he can look after himself which is just as well as he lives in Orpington which is hot easy to get to for me or my brother. His neighbors keep an eye on him and take him shopping once a week.
Good to have 4 weeks off Martin. Your body needs that rest. I've only run twice since Edinburgh and am not sure what to do next although with all this cool weather it would be good to do some races before the summer starts.
Wonder how many miles Hen has done?
Martin, Roth's in Bavaria, just south of Nuremberg. North of Munich. 105 miles on the bike is nothign compared to 56 on foot!
In the end it was 112 miles! Wasn't meant to be... was meant to be 106 or 105. But I took a wrong turn at a roundabout (following signs for a rival event ) and managed to add on a few miles before I realised and turned round. But my god - what a hilly 112 miles. Took me almost 8 and a half hours... Not sure exactly. About 8.20 I think.
But good news is my energy levels were good and I don't feel rubbish now. It's amazing what a night with 11 hours sleep can do. And last night it was almost 8 hours even though I got up at 5.45.
Good running Fido. And Howard.
Ah, Monsieur Ballons d'Or... you are spoiling me.
WOW AH... you do indeed rock..
Eastham ..(()) job..
lovely weekend in glos... old mate from school has ended up in a gorgeous house with pool and tennis court.. not jealous at all... we all had a right old laugh and went to visit the old school today.. it was a beautiful day ... very sunny - took lots of photos .. it is a real Hogwart school .. really truly.. all those on face book watch out for the photos .. its really OTT!!!
Susan -haven't FB'd for ages but will keep an eye. Have you got pics of the girls, too?
AH top stuff lady.
Oh - and more good news on this sunny Monday...
I went on line to book flights for Roth for AR and C today and... they've gone down in price by £75 a ticket! And that is for the slightly better timed flights which means they'll get there earlier . For once, procrastination has worked in my favour.
Gosh that's good AH, wow!!
I didn't see anything about Jovi falling - hope she is OK?
I keep forgetting to mention the 22nd July to you all.. I looked up trains... I can't take any time off work for it... just cannot work out if I can do it or not. Coming down is fine, I can get into London for 7 - 8pm easily enough but it's getting back to work for a decent time in the morning without having to get up at about 4.30am which I cannot work out!! We are supposed to be going away to the Lakes that weekend so I don't want to be too exhausted. Argh!
Only other thought is coming back up the Thurs night too but I've just looked and I would have to get a train at 9.30pm.... so by the time I travelled to and from Kings Cross to the pub I would probably only be with you all for an hour which makes no sense... argh!
Unless any of you live near Kings Cross and wouldn't mind me kipping over and letting myself out super early in the morning? Where my parents are (Ruislip) it's a 20 min walk to the tube then 45 mins on the tube to Kings Cross you see... there's a 7.35am train....
Argh actually I might have to forget it - would be £42 return plus tube fares etc and I keep forgetting I am supposed to be saving up for my wedding! I don't think I could justify it.......... SORRY EVERYONE!! I am really sad about it, had really been determined to come to this one.
First run for 2 weeks tonight - am actually super excited about it, can't wait!!!!!
Back home in London - Hot and sweaty!
Just one week I think. Lucky chap. Am gagging for some beach and sun and gratuitous G&T drinking. Not going to happen this year sadly. Again . Still. Who needs a gorgeous beach and the sparkling mediterranean sea when you can have a shipping canal in Germany at 6am??
Look after that hand, Jovi.
jovi, poor you, hope you are mending and will be able to clap your hands in appreciation of bon jovi, course she will we all say!!
ah good news re tickets and happy to see ar is going!
My daughter got to Rio safe and sound saturday having a ball and doing a lot of samba, oh its going to be a long year!!
My running is going quite nice at the moment, fingers crossed, lets hope it stays this way!
Jovi you should d o that last friday race, its a good one!
