So you are rocking it this challenge.  Glad you and the little one are on the mend from the head colds.  Hope you can start c25k-ing again soon, it looked like a lot of fun.

Also been experimenting with bone broth today. Just a little bit. Well, it's the latest fad, apparently, so why not?

😀

Is this what it's supposed to look like?

And since I'm doing pictures I got this in the post today for some running inspiration.

Since I started semi-boycotting amazon I can't seem to stop winning amazon tokens. This is the third now. Oh well, I don't mind "buying" stuff from them for free!

I'm no cook, but it looks like broth to me. :orange:

I had some for breakfast and it's quite nice, although I don't think it's goopy and gelatinous enough. Ah well. maybe I'll jhave another go later with more bones and more cooking time.

Today:

I managed to get out of work early enough to pedal my little legs off and get to the first session of circuits. Blitzed it and even managed to be passably debonair with the few people with whom I was in contact so I will count that as my first social win for not being Captain Taciturn - 1/3! In the evening it was portuguese flashcards.

Are you glad to get back into C25K?

Defo! She isn't 100% really and we didn't go all out. Tbh, we tend to take it fairly easy anyway and just enjoy being out there rather than pushing it to the limit, but the music we listen to sometimes inspires her to new feats of speed, and I think if we had a playlist that looked like this:

Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry - Roar

She could probably leave Dennis Kimetto in the dust.

Also pleased by her attitude to the conditions: "I don't like running and coming back without mud on my shoes. It makes me feel like I haven't done it properly"

This next batch is looking more promising. More stuff in it and I kept it at a low heat for hours and hours. It has reduced nicely. I think I'll have some for a nightcap.

Today was a long run - about eleven miles, with Slate podcasts for company for the first hour or so and Portuguese lessons (I really can't praise the Michel Thomas method enough!) for the rest. There were people coming down ylthe hill as I was going up, wearing medals from that morning's 5k race. Anyway, it was a good run; really muddy, raining quite hard, but I felt strong and I had plenty of stamina, chugging along at a low speed, never really tempted to stop.

Mrs 18ck is away at a friend's house for a half marathon she's doing tomorrow. Flyer and I had an daddy-daughter evening with pizza and a stupid movie. Tomorrow we have planned a busier day with C25K, swimming, football and some other stuff.

What movie are you going to watch?

Nothing today. Yesterday we watched 2012. Oh, it's soooooo stupid! The scale of the destruction is impressive though.

No danger of that today....

And um...

Today started later than expected. We had a fry-up and went for a c25k run, which was the best we've ever done, possibly because it was daylight for a change, so she was much more confident about running without worrying about the unexpected.

Foot selfie:

Then it was off to town and a swimming sesdion/diving lesson (really hard to coax her to commit to the dive... I wonder if there's a trick to it....)

Flyer was in bed early, soon after being reunited with Mrs 18ck, fresh from the Watford Half Marathon, and I did some Portuguese revision with Memrise. Now I'm off to bed too.

Not much happening today. Press-ups (lots) and some Portuguese podcastery (like 15 min). Yesterday I had wine as a run celebration. Today i ate too much bread. Tomorrow is Mrs 18ck's birthday so I we probably not exactly be captain paleo. Accepted, with the resolution that this will not be the beginning of the end for my forward momentum.
