Sunday Apr 4 #

6 AM

Running 37:15 [3] 6.96 km (5:21 / km) +22m 5:16 / km
ahr:137 max:157

Very easy on aching limbs. Slept great all things considered. Horrible mattress and had both bairns with me on a queen.
NB. I forgot a quirky scenario on this mornings run. I was stuck at a Pelican Crossing (for Tom's translation... Crosswalk at a traffic light, as opposed to a crosswalk without a traffic light...Zebra Crossing. Think Abbey Rd.) Knowing the Jaywalk Laws around here, I stopped and waited patiently for two minutes as zero cars came past. While I waited I watched some film on a 42" tele with a homeless lad. 30 secs in I realised...Hang's this lad got power? I followed the cable and found he'd plugged into the city's decorations. Brilliant!! And I was worried about crossing an empty street and getting fined. Everywhere I go in America I find these baffling contradictions. I remember 10 years ago. I took an old teacher to Telluride after his Cancer op. The whole time he was here I was making sure him and his wife were recycling right. They then found out the streets were heated. He exclaimed "Danny Lad! You soft bugger, you're here saving the world and everyone here is heating tarmac. You Whazak!" (All in his Yorkshire twang). Life's funny. Maybe I'll just run the lights from now on.

(sick) (rest day)

Rough drive to Long Beach CA. Lots of faffing about getting AM sorted after her op. Felt terrible until 5pm. I can’t figure out if Long Beach is an ok place. Sometimes I’m on the verge of being mugged. Other times I’m an extra in Fame.

Friday Apr 2 #

(rest day)

Travel day. Stayed outside Williams AZ. Kaibab NF looks like Trump has personally raked it. Beautiful forest. Secret trip to Durango resulted in another sleepless night.

Easy in Illium with Jeremie. Another poor nights sleep. Feeling rough all day. That's three days in a row.

Wednesday Mar 31 #


Another poor nights sleep. This time it was due to having to stay up until 1am to proof read Eadie's project. Eadie showed me her shambles at 9pm, so she had to re-do the whole thing. Tired, but it was all positive in the end.
3 PM

Running 51:01 [3] 9.67 km (5:17 / km) +86m 5:03 / km
ahr:154 max:179

3x10mins. Felt pretty shitty today. Just off. Legs felt a bit fresher though. Full on thaw going on here.
NB. Did this after shoveling gravel for two hours in the carpark. Listened to the Poland game. Finished with a BBQ over at Maddie and Lewy's.

Tuesday Mar 30 #
