Retirement Postponed

Oddly watching me run around a wet miserable Rutland Water on Sunday has got L enthused. She revokes her Half Marathon retirement and declares that she will join me in a few half marathons, while setting a new retirement date of 20th April 2020 e.g. after Brighton Marathon. She sounds a bit like the Government moving retirement dates.

It’s forecast to be wet all this week and it doesn’t look likely that I’ll get a bike ride in, so on Tuesday I resort to taking my gym kit to work with me and I do a brief Wattbike session after work. L runs from home, in the rain.

I go to the gym a day too early because Wednesday is National Fitness Day and I don’t do any fitness on National Fitness Day unless you count dog training.

In fact it’s worse than that because Wednesday is pub lunch day and they’ve finally got their pizza oven fixed. So it’s also 2-for-1 pizza day.

Derby County get embroiled in a drink drive saga involving two of their players and a third, club captain Richard Keogh, ends up as collateral damage and is out for the season.

Meanwhile the rest of the country is watching Lady Hale's Spider. 

On Friday L heads over to Leamington to see Son. The train goes via Derby, so she scrounges a lift back from Derby with me. Although she has to meet me at Halfords who have the dog car which is having its wobbly steering fixed.
