This may be something really numpty, however I'm new to this entire house thing still.
Every cloud, they say, has a silver lining. today should be Pieday, however due to everyone being lightweights it's not, so I ended up wandering round the Oracle, only to see that Game had Wii Fit in stock!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROB, YOU OLD BASTARD!
Like a complete idiot I ran the Reading Half again yesterday. as you may remember last year I just missed my target time of 1 hour 30, by a measley 12 seconds. I know it doesn't sound like much, but there is a big mental thing about the 90 minute barrier on half-marathons
As I was filtering through the inordinate amount of spam and crap I get in my inbox this morning, I spotted an email offering a reduced entry into the Windsor half-marathon in September. Before I realised it I was starting to complete the info and dig out my card. I managed to stop just in time...after all, I have New Year Resolutions to keep...
When I checked my wallet yesterday I had thirty quid in there. That in itself is not overly shocking, however it was the same thrity quid I'd taken out on Friday
One of the main things I've been getting used to since moving into Southwood six months ago is the longer commute into the office. Time-wise its not a huge difference from the old place in Tilehurst, however distance wise its a fair chunk more, and due to the vagaries of road layout the other side of the M4, its a bit indirect as well.
This Saturday I did my first ever competitive off-road running race, a little event called HellRunner down at Longmoor Army Camp. For the un-initiated, trail running is a form of hardcore cross-country. Not only do you get the footpaths and small ditches, you also get steep climbs, water obstacles and other general things that more sane people will simply walk round.
As you may or may not know, I had the last week off work. I promised myself that I'd spend a few days bumming around and generally recharging my batteries, and then get to work on finishing off the games room (or second bedroom as probably everyone else would refer to it). After a few days of frenzied (well, moderate) activity the decorating part of it is done, much to my relief.
