Today I sculled down the river in a crew of 4 (Gah! Why didn't I think of having sculling as an option in the Playground Kickaround?) Then Flyer19 and I went swimming (relaxed swimming, not intense swimming) followed by some playground parkour, slackline and half - hearted attempts at handstands. I was absolutely cream-crackered after the running and rowing so the handstands were doomed from the start.

Oh and I've booked a hotel for the family on the night before the race, which means week 1 of my between-challenge marathon plan is at 100% now.

Do any of you know the Bangles' first album "All Over the Place"? I'm listening to it for the first time since about 1990 and it's rocking my world. The 80s weren't all bad.

 

Anyway, today was supposed to be hill reps but due to lack of time I did

1k fast in the morning plus "stair reps" - 4 flights x 4

Quite a bit of stair climbing at work too. I am the guy who's always panting ever so slightly in meetings.

2k not quite so fast after work, plus BW rows and handstand practice. 

 

Tomorrow is a long run. Quite a lot of other crap to do though so y'know...

Flippin love The Bangles. These days I'm very much enjoying Susanna Hoffs' albums with Matthew Sweet - Under the Covers. Really great.

Nothing wrong with the 80's I will have you know, I was a new Romantic (runs and hides) lol.

It's never to late to be the person you always wanted to be.

The voice in your head telling you that you can't do it is a damn liar.

I was in my metal phase back then so it passed me by.

So, not a terrible day. Flyer19 is nine today and her grandparents visited bringing wine. I ate some cake but I had allowed for it in my plan, and I did some pushups - sticking to the plan again. Only 75, but sod it, we're between challenges here, so let's not go crazy. Other than that, the eating was spot on. Tomorrow I need to be in early but I'm going out with the grandparents in the evening so I also need to fit in a run before the early early start.

never did the metal thing, I went from punk to new romantic.

Still going to a lot of gigs with Steve Harley, Paul Weller and Neil young coming up, went to see Maxim Park a few weeks ago.

I have no choice about growing old, growing up however is another matter entirely.

I was slightly too young to be a punk (8 years old when God Save the Queen came out..) and wasn't ever confident enough to pull off the New Romantic look. At least if you're into metal everyone else is a greasy, dandruffy mess so you don't stand out. I quite like some of that music now though. Funny how I can be nostalgic for a scene I was never a part of, but it's all about the times when it was playing in the background I suppose.

I'm also still going to gigs, especially festivals. My daughter at 9 has seen Billy Bragg more than I had when I was a student and going to Anti Apartheid marches and the like. Your future gigs sound good. I've never seen any of them but I quite fancy a but of Neil Young especially.

Nice!

Reminds me I've got a thirty quid ticketmaster voucher to spend. Hm...

Anyway, got to be up early so I'd better hop into bed with Phil Hewitt. Nanite!

Ran a short distance before work as speedily as I could manage (not very). I was half asleep all day as a result of the early start, but never mind. Still reading "Keep on Running" and it's inspiring me to try harder, but that I have. Much time left. He's pretty fast by my standards, but I find his struggles very relatable.

I was going to ask which ESL philosopher you were quoting but I thought you might be having a moment.

A quote from Yoda it was like.
