 :D
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Working today and clearing scrub from a Puffin Island tmw so the wee darlings can burrow their nests, its my first time doing this so totally out of my comfort zone.

Good work dude - that sounds awesome! Whereabouts are you doing that?

As for me, resting today after the march yesterday and subsequent piss-up. Tomorrow it’s back to harp practise and more climate change science study.

My guess is North Wales.  Good work, Proudhuff!

Well learnt somthing today. Turns old the extra effort put into running up hill on my twice weekly 10k run home from work do not translate into faster times when I run the relatively flat (relatively this is Sheffield). I got a very disappointing 54.50ish today, which is pretty much what I run on the way home....

...so its not the hills its the extra 10 years that mean I'm not sure I'll ever break that 45 minute barrier!

Keep at it! You’ve probably just hit a plateau for the moment. Happens to us all. You’ll get there!

That's still a respectable time. My mate Martin ran Sheffield today, you probably saw him.

Oh Martin, yeah he was next to Bob!

Its okay. 9 years ago I did 46.02 (I think it was) closest I got to breaking 45 minutes... for some reason I figured that those 9 years didn't matter as much as running up hills! Live and learn and hey just means I've got to rethink my strategy... though can't get rid of those hills on my way home from work alas... or set different goals.

Keep on runnin'...
