About 2 hrs to go, Columba. Just stopped tp charge and have a bowl of soup. All good so far. Phew!

I'll likely go straight to bed when I get in so more tomorrow.

Hope the rest of your journey went smoothly ITG and you got a good night's sleep.
I was planning a longer run today but I have woken up slightly lurgified. I can't decide whether I should rest today with the hope of beating the lurgy before it starts or get out there today on the assumption that I may feel even worse tomorrow......

Morning. Absolutely shattered. No sleep possible in bed because of OH's restlessness (involves kicking, and waving his arms around and banging them down, often on me, all while asleep) so decamped to sofa downstairs at about 2am but the sofa is *just* too short for me to stretch out fully so sleep there was only fitful and my hips hurt. It's hard to overstate how p!ssed off I am!

OH has taken the dog out - just as well to keep away from me - and I'm in my kit but waiting for the wardrobes man to arrive. As soon as the two spare bedrooms are no longer full of clothes and 'stuff' from our proper bedroom at least I'll have decent beds to choose from if we have another night like last night!

And I wish the wardrobes man would hurry up and arrive because it's sunny now and I would like to get my 6k done before the next downpour!

Got something to say?
