Sunday 27th November 2011 to Saturday 3rd December 2011

Friday 2nd December 2011
Knackered from Badmo and all. So decided to have rest day. Ha ha.

Thursday 1st December 2011
Quick run up town and back. V Tired but still under 11min miles.

Wednesday 30th November 2011
Quick run up town and back then off to that London for a Microsoft Sharepoint seminar. Very good. Almost 10 min miles as well for a change.

Tuesday 29th November 2011
Possibly the final dog walk - his owner's family are all ill so we had the dog an extra day. So did the two mile loop again. Six minutes quicker than yesterday but there was one less pooper scooper to do so that might be related.

Monday 28th November 2011
Think I mentioned we've been dogsitting this weekend, well we've still got the pooch into Monday so this morning was reduced to walking the animal 2 miles round the block and got nothing much else done. Such is life.

Sunday 27th November 2011
Couldn't get out of bed! 8am! N'er mind 7 mile slow run round Okeover Park and what have you. 11min 30sec miles nothing to be impressed by but that's what I'm down to.

Sunday 20th November 2011 to Saturday 26th November 2011

Saturday 26th November 2011
Missus gone shopping, we got a lil wire-haired Jack Russell for the weekend called Pip. Should be interesting. Nowt much to speak of today. West Ham beat the Rams but it was a mercy victory really - you have to give a little bit of chariy to that poor fella up front for the hammers who loses his balance once in the penalty area - poor chap - a breath of air and he's on his arse.

Friday 25th November 2011
Interesting Badminton session last night - found out that I don't do the 'big to the back' serves right - sort of come around rather than under so need to get that sorted. That said, I didn't lose a single game so that's got to be good. Anyway, was totally jiggered last night and this crept through to this morning with a crap run up town and back with many short walking spells. I think there might be an outside chance am getting old. Was looking forward to a fishing session this weekend but looks like it's not going to be happening now, which is standard for me of late. Anyway details of run

Thursday 24th November 2011
Couldn't get out of bed. Knackered. So late that made decision to just do a two mile loop. So tired so rubbish pace. Such is life

Wednesday 23rd November 2011
Dragged myself out of bed for 5:50. Got tidied up, got some bits together to send for Ebay mullarky and got them sorted. Went run, stopped off at bank to get some cash, picked papers up and then back home for 6:55. 3 miles done (forgot to restart the clock after papers for half a mile) close to 10min miles

Tuesday 22nd November 2011
Got up feeling a bit better than yesterday but still not brill. Did a two mile walk round the block last night then forgot to switch watch off when got home so it looks like 2.7 miles when it was actually a smidge over 2 miles.

Anyway, back to today, did a bit of early morning tidying up then up town and back to fetch papers - getting really tired but first mile was around 10 minutes - it'll get better I'm sure.

Monday 21st November 2011
Got up at 6am, stiff as a board - 13 miles on a Sunday is out of my league these days.
Anyway, did some tidying up - cleaned shoes, put breadmaker away, went run up town and back. Which as expected was a bit slow!

Sunday 20th November 2011 Started off with a steady (read "slow") 7.5 mile run.

Then rather rubbish golf in which I missed two putts from 18"
We ended up with a nett 76 that should have been at least four shots better if putts hadn't horse-shoed or been missed from laughably close up. Anyway another 6 miles to add to the total.

Sunday 13th November 2011 to Saturday 19th November 2011

Sunday 13th November 2011
Did nowt pretty much. Washed cars. Went to Costco as requested. Didn't realise they did eye tests which should be handy I reckon for next time. Bought a load of junk we shouldn't have then come home. Nothing to add other than that!

Monday 14th November 2011
Got up and went for a spin on the bike. Am awaiting some innertubes coming from Ebayland before I start commuting proper again. Anyway a steady 7 or so miles. Got back from work watched the Other Guys with Phil - that Will Ferrell does make me laugh.

Tuesday 15th November 2011
Couldn't make me mind up today. Ended up running three miles - watch was flat so no record but it felt a steady pace. Then drove to other side of Alfreton and cycled in. Ridiculously I hadn't realised that the Leisure Centre wasn't a blue permit car park so had to rescue car with the help of Dan from facilities before it got a £60 fine!! Will know for next time though! Anyway three miles running, three miles cycling.

Wednesday 16th November 2011
Run up town and back. Right tired.

Thursday 17th November 2011
Watched ‘The Kennedy Detail’ til late last night so couldn’tget out of bed and have got badminton tonight anyway so that’ll have to do! The Kennedy Assassination has been anever-present in my life. I rememberwatching conspiracy theory programs on the old 14” black and white portable asa teenager and being outraged even though it all happened before I was evenborn. The program based on a book by oneof the members of the Kennedy Security team was very moving, these guys are nowin their 70s and are still emotional about it all particularly about JackieKennedy’s response to what happened. I’ll certainly watch it again if it’s on - interestingly they all said conspiracy theories were a load of bunkem - all the shots came from the rear right they said which would point to it being Lee Harvey Oswald in the book depository.

Saturday 12th November 2011
Phil's moped is off the road at the moment so up at 4am, took him to work then back to bed, lovely. Got up at 8am. Fetched papers and picked up an inner tube for the bike from Lumbards. £2.50 cheaper than the one I bought on Thursday from Alfreton Bike shop - must use Lumbards more often in future.

Golf was rubbish - started off nicely was 1 over after three holes but then it all went awry with a number of doubles that shouldn't have been. Anyway, no-one was marking our card so it didn't much matter.

Friday 11th November 2011
Tired, no run. got some jobs done, come to work. Have got one of the punctured wheels sorted, do the other this weekend, back on the road Monday.

Thursday 10th November 2011
Up late, no run. Average day at work. Badminton in evening, Lucy improving, me getting worse.

Wednesday 9th November 2011
Hacked off today, cycled in to work for first time for a few days, got to Clover Nook Industrial Estate and got multiple punctures due to some tosspot leaving a loaded of shredded paper with staples in the road. Then found out that some other git has been trying to defraud my credit card so I've had to make phone calls and now have to wait for a new card to come.

Tuesday 8th November 2011
Up late last night trying to get a QQ Box satellite receiver working with the laptop. It will work with DVB Dream but not with Blaze HD TV package. Very frustrating. Anyway, up 5:55am and did the quick up town and back run again. Just over 10 min miles so okay. Am getting into the swing again.

Monday 7th November 2011
Up a bit late, got a bit of work done. Then went run 2.5 miles - sub 10 min miles for first time in a bit. Into work early this morning for unspecified reasons.

Sunday 6th November 2011
8am, ran the same 6 mile loop as last week through Okeover Park and back beautiful.

Lunch at Nag's Head then did some pics for Jason at JJC Sporting Guns then walked back through Snelston over the hill to Sides Lane Mill and back home for a couple more miles for the day.
