Quick update. Yesterday was a bit feeble but I got up early and swam before work today, so... Winning!

Thanks for the ideas!  A pity about the education minister.  :(

He is a very strange man.

Sometimes laughter is the only response to the prospect of imminent doom and the extinction of all one holds dear.  Laughter, and chocolate.

Mm, I'd have to agree to both.

How did the foot enjoy the rest?

Strangely it got sore again. I'm just trying to relax it. It's not as bad as before the marathon and I am officially into not-moaning-about-it-any-more mode but it's very weird that it hurts more after a week of rest than it did immediately after running 26.2!

Great read! Good luck on Destroying the Galaxy! 

Thanks. My daughter has pointed out that if I destroy the galaxy it will destroy my challenge because it is part of the galaxy and therefore I can't succeed in this challenge. Bah, what care I for such things?

I'm so impressed when you get things done before work. I don't usually even get my mascara on until I'm sitting at my desk, lol.

I occasionally get things done *at* work too, but not often.

OK, spot challenge. I've got 4 days off and in that time I will:

  • Have a long conversation in Portuguese, even if I have to imprison Mrs 18ck to do it
  • Clean this keyboard
  • Service all our bikes and Flyer's scooter
  • Read 100 pages of "The Beauty and the Sorrow" (I don't normally do reading challenges because it turns reading into a chore, but I've got so distracted by other books it's just languishing on my bedside table)
  • Do an outing in a single scull
  • Do my accounts
  • Not allow any of the above to impinge on Easter fun.
  • Unsubscribe from every piece of unwanted corporate email that arrives in my inbox

May I suggest Unroll.me? It helps to unsubscribe or consolidate all of your subscription emails without much hassle (i.e., waiting for each email to come through then clicking a link to go to a survey to tell them why you want to unsubscribe and still continue to receive emails for weeks after)

That is so weird, do you know why it's hurting?

I think I've ruled out broken bones. Must be something in soft tissues that's made worse by running/walking on it in unusual ways... Not sure but I feel like I can manage it now.

Portuguese fail yesterday. I usually do it at the end of the day but Mrs 18ck was v ill all of a sudden so I turned all the lights off in the flat just to let her get some rest. Not a great reason, I know, but I am already one down on that goal.

Has anybody seen my challenge?

Oh hello daughter

I think a lot of them have.

It's a bit boring indoors. Shall we go outside and have an epic battle? I think I might destroy the tate modern with a new death ray. Think you can stop me?

I like your idea of spot challenges when you see some extra free time coming up!

Yeah, I've done a few of those already but only the small, easy ones.

I wanted to let you know that it isn't fair to ground your nemesis just because she's kicking your butt...

Hmph!

So today I spent most of the morning meeting and greeting level 1 newbies. In the afternoon, Flyer19 and I went out for a little adventure. We swam a few lengths, including some in the outdoor pool (and let me tell you it was *not* a warm day today!) then went to the park where we did tree planks, handstands, Slacklining, box jumps, sprints and playground parkour, as the fancy took us. It was a good laugh. Then we went home and watched Super 8 for family film night, with some pasta and steak. Om nom nom.

OK, now for some Portuguese and then reading for my spot challenge.

Looking for Marathons to do next: "The race takes place in the Kent's Cyclopark. Because the track has been built for cycle races the surface is tarmac and is not affected by other traffic. Participants will run 17 laps of 2.49km track. " I'd die of boredom after the first 2.

 

I really like the sound of this one: "Runners follow a route through private woodlands, coastal paths and beaches that is otherwise closed to runners throughout the year. Lying at the mouth of the Erme Estuary, the area is considered to be of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has also been used for movie productions, such as Hornblower and Sense and Sensibility." although apparently it's a pretty hellish course. It's up and down steep trails for 27.9 miles - so an ultra, really - and the course record is 3:55:32 (A flat road marathon would have a record of under 3 and often well under 3 if elite runners are involved) so I might be destroyed.

 

Probably somewhere between these two extremes...

Today i did a long - but not very good - run. It was 13 miles but with a couple of stops in it. Just lethargic and listless and not enjoying it but that happens sometimes so no biggie. I had a couple of really good insights during my alone time, thinking through aspects of my life; nothing momentous but a couple of little things that I can take forward in the week.

I also listened to about an hour of the Portuguese audio tuition, traded a few phrases with the Portuguese neighbours who arrived back today from Porto with little delicious sugared almonds, and put in some Portuguese clues for Flyer19 for tomorrow's egg hunt. The week is going well, apart from that missed Portuguese day. I think I need to rethink my food goal though. I put it in without planning properly and then started reading up about it and while it is doable I just found it so full of pseudo science that I just couldn't bring myself to engage with it. I'm not sure where to go with it in week 2.
