Well, today wasn't quite the super-busy day I had planned - I wasn't really up to a long run (slight cough/headache situation) but I did a short one in the morning and some bw rows, then in the afternoon I went out with the artist formerly known as 18ckette and now known as Flyer 17 or Fever Crumb as the mood takes her. We did a sort of long, running obstacle course - run to one site, do some balancing squeeze through a fence, run some more, jump over a puddle, do some pull ups and step ups, sprint a bit, do more balancing and some handstands, followed by a long run up and down steps. I think it was about 1k in total, and much more fun than a normal run.

Here's my first attempt at the handstands challenge

Oh, and in case you're wondering how much change fell out of my pockets, the answer is £1.40. And in case you're wondering why I had change in my pockets while I was running, I have no idea.

:-) well, it's just a thought. She's interested in NF and some of the people on it (you and Shortstuff for example, because your names are funny, and German because of his Shrek/Monkey transformation). She's got a couple of sporty things in mind for the future and I thought it would help to have a framework for her training. I dunno. Maybe maybe not. I'll see what she says.

That's so cool!

No, you can't leave. We're keeping you here. I'll be Kathy Bates, you can be James Caan.

Pleeeeeeaase don't saw my feet** off this time!!!

EDIT ** break my ankles I mean. Sawing them off was "Saw", right?

Well, it's one way of losing weight, but perhaps not the best way...

Well that was fun. I seem to be a scout, druid, assassin at heart, depending on which hero I favor at the end. It's a hard choice when you admire/enjoy at least one charcter from each group.

It's great, isn't it? I don't think it's official - I believe Nuala the Robot Assassin made it.

Oh and there are soooooo many heroes that could have been added... And books (no Born To Run???) but I guess making it comprehensive would also make it a bit unwieldy!

I was just thinking about book characters! Would get really busy.

18ck's adventures in Handstandland*

I repeated my tree handstand and got a bit higher while out with my homey, Flyer 19. I tried doing a pushup in that pose and my brain almost fell out of my nose. We also got some kick-up practice too, just to get the hang of the sensation. I think I hit about 80 degrees but who knows - maybe it was more like 20**. Oh and I did some crow - posing, which seemed like a relevant balancing exercise.

(*=Handstandistan?)

(**=a Facebook comment on 18ckette's tree handstand - "She's a little angle" :-) )

OMG I'd hate to think of someone's brains falling out of their nose....

I hate to think of my own brain falling out of anything. Other people's, I'm less bothered.

Good luck with the marathon training! I look forward to cheering you on in the coming weeks.

Thanks. I'm quite enjoying it so far. Especially the handstands. I should probably go for a run though.

So far, I've been eating sensibly, but a bit light on Portuguese work. I've done some more handstands, completed week 4,day 1 of the pushup challenge, and done a 30 minutes ergo. No running yet. No running for ages. Tch! What kind of scout am I? One with a tickly cough! I might try to run tomorrow morning (*Yoda voice* Run or Run not - there is no might try) and swim in the evening (did I mention we have no hot water? I need to do something with a shower involved!)

Still no hot water? What's up with that?

The boiler is 15 feet from the outside wall and goes over a bedroom. Blah blah blah new building regs. Basically trying to find someone who will do it for less than £4500 and without laying waste to the flat. Meanwhile, there are kettles and flannels and what-not.

Hah! Same here. Still some more coughing but this week-end there will be no more excuses.

Go 18ck! :) It's you who signed up for that marathon, not me!

I can run all of my 10Ks off my sleeve. :D
