Tooo busy.

Where to start…
1st – went for my final run around Enfield on Thursday around a 9k routeI have travelled 32 times since January. It was not as hard as thefirst time and not as easy as the best time, but I made it.
2nd – Friday I left work just after lunch, picked up a rock, the keys to the house, some champagne and some red roses. Then I got down on the knee (which is now quite sore?) and proposed to my girlfriend on the threshold of our first home together as she was opening the door for the first time…obviously no time for running…she said yes.
3rd – Saturday was taken up lifting heavy things, moving oneself never gets any easier, especially when you keep acquiring more and more bigger furniture…obviously too weary for running.
4th – Got up Sunday and went shopping, bought running bag (bargain for $20) then to a Christmas lunch with friends, more moving and cleaning…obviously no time for running.
5th – Right, now that I am no longer on the main road to work I had to get myself there so I fired up the Foot Falcon this morning and rode it to work. The move cut off 5k from the run to work and this mornings trip only took 51mins for the 7.7km. Now to scab a ride home because I
am lazy…
More anon, work is too busy too do much blogging or blog reading (sorry)
and the internet is not on at the new place yet.

Edit: will follow up with a piccie for you becky when I can get my computer/internet set up at home, in the mean time you eill have to settle for this…it is the one in the bottom right corner.
After scabbing a lift home last night I ran in again this morning, left 3mins later so put in a little more effort and arrived at the same time as yesterday, 7.8k in 48mins. After not stretching yesterday and having my knee complain bitterly all day, I lay down on the grass next to our security hut and stretched out the knee for five minutes. It feels great now.

    1. Well done. You’ve come a long way.
    2. Congrats on the engagement. You only need to do that once, so I’m sure the knee pain is worth it. Nice rock.
    3. Moving sucks. We did it twice in the last year.
    4. What type of running bag?
    5. 7.7km (or 7.8?) is a nice distance to run to work. Not too long, not too short. You might even be able to run to and from work sometimes!

    Great post! hope you have a wonderful xmas in your new home.

    The sore knee may have been due to the proposal. You can stop doing that now.

    More details on “2nd” please.

    You sure you aren’t in sales – good strategy and guaranteed to get a “yes”.

    Merry Christmas and best wishes for what will be a jam-packed 2007…
