The Half Life of 18ck


18ck

Recommended Posts

Lots of portuguese today. Reading, listening and flashcards. No exercise though. Not even cycling. It snowed overnight. Huge drifts, up to 4mm, and I'm british so that was enough to bring me to a standstill.

OK, that's the birthday treats done. Let's get back to work.

Uff

...

Well it's amazing how just one or two days of cakewinitude can leave me feeling all blahed out. It didn't last the day though. Once Flyer got home, we went for a C25K Zombie run and then I did a short little speed run at the end to make it more like a proper mid-week training session.

Hm, still no Portuguese today. I'd better do something before bed.

Oh, and the handstands! I did two of the most epic handstands I've ever done today. I was like a mighty tower. I just needed a giant orange eye on my feet and I could have held all mordor under my sway.

YAY!!!!!!

Congrats on the Handstand!

Haha! Well done on the handstand.

Yep, I was quite pleased. I wanted an audience.

How is Flyer??

She's doing well. Each time we run she gets a little stronger and she's learning useful tricks like how to keep her breathing even (mainly by not trying to ask my movie quiz questions while running) and how to loosen her shoulders up while she's running so as not to get stiff. She's keen to do Race For Life with mummy in the summer.

I rocked up late for circuits and had to go downstairs and lift some heavy things instead. Well, nothing wrong with that. I would have preferred circuits though. Also, another round of portuguese flashcards down.

All up to date on your awesomeness.  I thought you guys got more snow.  Roar is a great song, it is on my workout playlist.  Mud is fun and definitely fun to see how much you can cake on running through it.  Oops, shouldn't mention cake so it can be an indulgence instead of a derailment.  And epic pull-up and now handstands, congrats!

You are really kickin some arse with the Portuguese this challenge! It's awesome.

Arse? Hey, you speak English! 😁

Thanks. No, we seldom get snow here. Once a year if we're lucky. Northern England and Scotland tend to get more. Thanks for looking in on me. I must admit, I'm not really paying as much attention to m'fellow Scouts as I would like, partly due to busy-ness and partly due to this new version of tapatalk which seems to be designed to stop any sort of easy engagement with forums. Well it's Saturday so maybe I'll fire up the laptop and see what's going on.

Yesterday:

Threshold intervals in the morning, followed by more breathtaking (if brief) handstands. C25K with Flyer in the afternoon. Got in touch with an old friend and arranged to have lunch with her in the week since she lives near my current place of work. In the evening, Mrs 18ck was at a party so Flyer and I stayed in watching a film and stuffing our faces with bangers and mash and a truly heinous pudding.

In my running gear again now...

Long run for me, short run for Mrs. Flyer is benched with a sore leg from yesterday. I think she went off too hard on a day when it was very cold and merited a long, slow warm-up. Tomorrow should be OK though, I hope.

LOL I remember when you said something like that to me when we first met, because I used the word shite. It's one of my regulars! It must be British TV and my Manx blood. :mushroom:

It pleases me that you only know the bad words [emoji48]

So today's roaring rampage of um... rutabaga... Um... I did a long run (9 miles or so, I dunno. Pretty easy, really, despite the hills, and I'm feeling OK (not overwhelmingly delighted, but ok) about my training with a week to go before the tapir claims me for its own.

In the evening I tried to watch a whole film in Portuguese but my brain melted after 21 minutes and I did some flashcards instead. It seemed like a terrible movie. Made for TV, I think. Two of the characters were supposed to be smokers but the actors obviously weren't and they looked incredibly uncomfortable, and all the shots of one of them were at weird angles so you couldn't see her look of disgust, I suppose. I find that sort of thing weirdly distracting. I could follow some of the dialogue and managed to ask a question on italki about an idiomatic phrase.
