Note

I went out to toad patrol for first time this year - dropped headtorch in first 2 mins - no one ever found it. £80 new. https://todbermanor.co.uk/16993/petzl-reactik-220-...

Has anyone got a gun? (lost £400 in rent yesterday, and £450 in car brakes being shit today when took my new car in for minor repair).

"It's OK not to be OK".

I'm *not* OK.
9 AM

Walking (Turf) 45:00 [1]
(sick)

Walk back from garage, via an obvious Turf zone in Fishponds.

Got home & was unfortunately ill. (shits). lie down after. Damn.
3 PM

Running (Turf) 53:00 [3] 10.8 km (4:54 / km) +115m 4:40 / km
shoes: Brooks Ravenna 11

Turf, from morrisons car park, note also "ran" (shuffled) in coat etc to garage (get car), and didn't start stopwatch until 3rd Turf. No Garmin with me - wasn't really planning on this. (had upset stomach in morning).

On cycle path on way back at end, put in a sustained 4 minute burst, which i measured as 0.95km on Mapometer. not bad in trail trousers! (v slight uphill - mapometer says 14m ascent! not sure about that.....)

Think I've totally lost the plot, myself. Turf addict. Similar to two other addictions I've had. And as compelling.

Cycling (Turf) 45:05 [3] 11.87 km (3:48 / km) +123m 3:37 / km

Sun & mild, hadn't planned to but my hour out was a quick urban cycle turf.

Some pretty awesome urban art found, that I'd not seen before. see pics on straval.

Bristol's a cool city, some of the Montpelier & St Pauls terraces are appealing, build for a different age & adapted by a diverse & evolving population. I probably shall never tread these streets again. I am not of this time anymore, & need to move away, out of cities, to fresh air & views.

Slightly woozy head today - a lot of stress at the moment (house / ME work / tenant issues).

Orienteering (Turf) 59:06 [3] 10.22 km (5:47 / km) +240m 5:11 / km
shoes: VJ Integrators

Ashton court in dobs & the mud, permanent O course, for a change. Hoped for masses of Turfs, but in fact the place has hardly any - I got three. incl. one down on the road at Bower Ashton (couldn't help myself)

Path in from no 17 to no 21 non existent - no way thru - got stuck & after 2 attempts, had to bail out back the way I came. Map must be wrong here (pics on Strava)

no 9 I find a very badly mapped control / circle. I stopped my garmin & walked around; to get to the post, you go down the same slope as the gullies are on. That's not what's expected looking at the map.

Felt v "O" unfit & out of practice at the west end - mud, undergrowth,. rocky, steep in parts, uneven ground. By contrast, the grassy golf course areas I was able to float along happily. Indeed............

Note
(rest day)

Boiler broken.

No, not that one - the one in my rented Clifton flat.

Tally: I own: 2 properties, 2 boilers;
Number of working boilers owned by me: Nil.

Update: "fixed" it, but radiator leaking. No breaks here. several calls to Tett to isolate & "fix" that. Plenty of work to get done now. Good oh.

FML. https://www.dictionary.com/e/slang/fml/

Facebook people can see a year ago. POM.

Who says 2020 was shit? 2021 is going A LOT WORSE so far.

Yeah, right now I would rather be a Kiwi. Rain.

12 PM

Running (Turf) 1:07:56 [3] 13.01 km (5:13 / km) +150m 4:56 / km
shoes: Brooks Ravenna 11

Despite some residual brain-wrong / "clamp" / "fog", I had to get out for MH reasons, (also rain & wind). Turf. Near me.

On balance, really glad I got out, despite feeling a little off colour , & the mud in Stoke park being horrific.

Got 13 zones.

hot shower, shave, wood fire, cats, food & red wine at Liz's later. She getting overwhelmed with the complex practicalities of moving to edinbugh (£400 to move the pets!!!).
