A damp but cheerful Friday

Just a mile this morning…

…but then I had already been up and about doing stuff for a couple of hours, having woken up at six for some reason. Oh for a predictable sleep pattern.

Kieran and Lisa popped in for lunch today. Geth and I had hoped to use the new garden furniture that I put together earlier this week, but today turned out to be a wet day in Newcastle (of course) so we sat inside instead. It was really nice to see people we actually knew for the first time since March (other than neighbours, shopkeepers, hairdressers, bumping into running friends when running etc. etc.) and to catch up after a long time.

Looking forward to a quiet weekend now. Next full update on Monday!

Running plans

Back to my Monday recovery mile today…

…and I’m getting really excited now about finally finding out what is happening with the London Marathon this week! I have two totally different sets of running adventures planned for the next couple of months, depending on what the decision is. We’ll definitely hear by Friday, apparently!

As I have done for the past couple of weeks, I’m taking today off – I got all of today’s work done yesterday so that I could do this again. I’ve got a couple of decent-sized videogames that I want to get into this week, so I should be able to get a good start on those today.

It’s the first week of August, so that means new writing and game creation projects. I’ll get cracking on those tomorrow!
