L had suggested an early morning run together once a week but that was before I injured myself again. Today she goes out with a substitute runner, MD, for a short five minute session. He seems to love it.
After work I head to my parents place and later the League Cup match against Reading, which Derby win 2-0 to take themselves through to the last 16.
L says she will looking forward to a roast beef sandwich later, referring to the fact that my mother nearly always sends me home with a chunk of leftover roast beef for the dogs.
No such luck today, she apologetically hands me a pack of chew sticks instead. I text L with the news that she might have to consider cooking something.
