    Nippy and soggy.
    Pi needs a reboot, then back to bed.

    Morning all. OH,s gopher today and in return being taken out later as a reward. Looks like I'm on a promise. Kicked out of the pub with the lad last night. 🍺🍺 hic. Felt sorry for them as place isn't very busy due to CV19.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning folks, but only just.
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed, not raining at the moment so might venture outside to run some errands. Not going too far as may be needed to help the invalid. Lots of housework to be done, deep joy

    Long run this morning, unfortunately as it was a recce of the route we are doing for EFM it meant a 4am start, tired now.

    Now is a few jobs and then friends over for dinner

    TLW your mad. Currently searching for lost ride and running mojo. May attempt both tomorrow if nice.
    Thistle not mine but got to admire the author for originality.

    Got up before 8.30 which I count as early for a Saturday. Long walk with the dogs which became even longer when Strifeys car got a flat on the way back. Ferkin wheel wasn't going to come off without applying enough brute force to knock the car off the crappy car Jack so had to get the AA to kick it hard while on a trolley Jack.

    Now in the local cafe having a much needed full English and lots of tea to compensate.

    Yep, 24 hrs to run as far as you can as the crow flies. You choose the direction and route.

    Today we were on the cotswold way, far too slow compared to road or canal but not as boring

    That is a bit bonkers. I wouldn't have any knees left if I did that.

    Not sure I will.

    This week for the first ever time I became a runner that cycles rather than a cyclist who runs when my time on feet exceeded ride time 😢

    Staying in an 'otel for our wedding anniversary. Going out for dinner too. Only a 15 minute walk up the road in the posh bit of Wimbledon, but it's the thought that counts.

    Was at the tip again today. Rubble, soil, greenery, assorted other rubbish. 2 car loads.

    That's more than a bit bonkers, although running 5 miles in 24 hours with lots of pub stops and a decent kip sounds achievable
