    Morning

    Short run
    WFW
    Gym if people decide not to dive into each other every 3 miles on the way home this time.

    Early start as a fox in the garden triggered the security light which triggered the hounds before my alarm went off. Mrs. 666 was not amused, especially as she couldn't blame it on me :) Furry little git was still there when I went downstairs and didn't scarper when it saw me. Must have known I CBA to go outside and chase it; if it hadn't been so early I would have given the job to the hounds.

    Now on the train - noticeably busier now that people have presumably been told to get their arrises into work. Got a mahoosive cottage pie for lunch, feeling packing already. Coffee first...

    Gentle run in warm weather for once.

    Work snizzle then lactate threshold run for 75mins then potentially the pub

    What's the craic with 75 minutes? That' not just a random time.
    What have you got against foxes Stevo?!
    I must keep reminding myself when I look out at the road and how quiet it is to be grateful there are no Chelsea tractors ferrying Sebastian and Penelope hither and thither.
    School is 4 miles away and I do it in 7 minutes.
    We bemoan a lack of a direct bus. However, when they both go to 'the big school'. I'll be surplus to requirements :smiley:

    Seems to have gone away by itself....
    Not had any problems on that same roundabout at the same speed this week.

    Probably a bit of diesel spilt on the road (did someone else suggest that :wink: )

    They cr@p in the garden and the dogs roll in it so we end up having to wash them, it's vile stuff. Next time the dogs can have a nice little game of chase if it's not too late/early o:) (the fox will get away as it can jump over the fences we put up to keep the dogs in but it needs to learn this is hound territory...)

    I learnt about diesel on the road the hard way one evening on my bike. Lucky there wasn't a car close behind me.

    Yes I drove less than 1/2 a mile but carried on to work so I suppose all could possibly be forgiven?
    Enjoyed mask free lunch purchases on the way to WFW (what pandemic). Rearrange some holiday stuff later.

    Coach gives time as if it was say 8 miles, that’s an hour on the road but depending on the terrain could be two hours off road

    It’s really odd they finish juniors and you can’t understand how they are going to cope on a school bus but by the September they are ready.

    For all kids cruelty they look out for the young ones on the bus and then at school

    thats something i've actually been hearing quite a lot of recently, generally followed by "and exactly why are you here when you lot aren't meant to be here, out of interest?"

    as for your question: i'm just from HR mate, doing a survey.

    I guess that's why bike races require you to have plugs in your handlebars.

    Day "off" of sorts. Had friends visit for lunch, not seen them in 4 years so that was a good catch up.

    Spent the rest of the day avoiding hard work jobs in the garden.
