Saturdays soundtrack is insomnia / keep on running

As I expected, shoot sleep, did expect more though :(

Hoping to drop back off for at least half an hour whilst watching gp practice soon, then I start shoving calories in

The rest of the day is running, each mile getting me closer to cider :)

    Morning, looks like I will be decorating again, but should be finished for lunch time, raining very heavily and forecast all day, might just give the bikes a good clean this afternoon
    Have a good weekend

    Good luck TLW.

    Chucking it down here too LD but Forecast says it's going to be nice later. Might go for a cheeky time trial this afternoon, if such a thing is possible.

    chores and a trip to the gym will take up the rest of the day.

    Good luck TLW. I reckon you're certifiable for doing an ultra marathon both fair play for doing it at your age :P

    I've done my exercise for the week so today will be a normal Saturday, this one starting with with a full English brekky fest with a couple of mates in Beckenham. Later is jobs n stuff followed by footy watching.

    quick 40 completed at a metronomic tempo maintaing heart rate at required levels.

    bizarrely some bloke road for 12 miles approx 10 feet behind me in complete silence. Random. No idea who it was but if it was me personally I would have got bored of looking at some geezer's backside after about 900 yards and pulled alongside for a chat. How strange.

    Was he dressed all in black, big hood, carrying a scythe? Message there.

    I have a candles on the cake day. Mega surprise yesterday when old pal from university days and his missus walked through the door, down to spend the weekend with us. Mrs O had been secret squirrel organising. Several beers been had already, today will be more of the same.

    cold and gloomygrey out, bit of drizzle, rode up and down, and around and around, seems to be 20c cooler than i'd like, need to wear more, much more

    had an extra brekkie to help ward off the near-arctic conditions
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Morning. Slinging it down here so doing sod all apart from dads taxi for youngest. TLW your definitely mad, marathon,s etc I understand but ultra marathons that's hard-core. Good luck with it, I'll stick with 5k,s and half marathons once my body permits to start again. As to decorating LD, I'd sooner work some overtime and pay someone to do it for me.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Happy birthday, 'Loon.

    Good day, loads of sunshine to loll about in this morning then some petrol-powered gardening tool activities this afternoon. Pizza for dinner. Win!

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start has been had, now at my Mum’s adding a few locks and stuff so she feels safer. Bloody wet and miserable out so I won’t be replacing the side gate today unfortunately.
    Off to Gloucester tomorrow to see bro in law, unfortunately I don’t think he’s going to last much longer. Lung cancer that’s spread to bones and liver, they gave upon his treatment a couple of weeks ago so not good at all. Not a good year to be related to me it seems.

    Thanks for the good wishes - loved it, though broken today. My favourite part was realising my map had fallen out of my back pack and having to run a mile back to get it

    Might not have been good if it fell out at the start line!
