I’m watching Dancing on Ice. Right now. Whilst writing. And I like it. For some reason I find myself interested in the contestants this year. Kerry Katona, Vanilla Ice and Comedy Dave (Chris Moyles Show). There are other contestants of course, but who cares about them. I think Kerry Katona deserves a break and I’m hoping she’ll do well.
I haven’t got loads to write about today I’m afraid. Today’s supplement could be very short indeed! Some random musings:
I’m still deeply in love with my iPhone. I use it all the time for loads of different things. It’s so much more than a phone isn’t it? When I first got it I weighed up the options and debated on whether to get an Android phone but I decided to stay loyal to Apple as I already have a Macbook Pro and I love that/this.
I’ve taken a week of annual leave this coming week. No work for me! I say that, but I still always end up doing some work at some point during holidays. A lot of change going on at my work a the moment. Some people don’t like change but I’m learning to live with it and try and embrace it as much as possible. I’m looking forward to 2011 from a work perspective and I think it will be a good year.
My 4 year old son is so clever. Well, my wife and I think so anyway. He can easily count to 40 and can say his alphabet. He seems to take everything in he hears. Little sponge.
Running is going well I think. I’m no where near as fast as I was last year or the year before but I’ll get there in time. Technically I’m still laying down the base fitness and I am happy with the progress to date. Ideally I’d like to complete the Reading Half Marathon in under 2 hours 10 minutes to make up for my poor performance last year. Even better, I’d like to get close to 2 hours or under like the year before (2009). I’d like to say I’m not setting any goals but that is impossible if you’ve already completed an event previously. In the back of your mind you would always be comparing against previous races anyway.
Today’s run was supposed to be easy but I found it very hard. I tried to keep it slow and easy but I still had to walk a couple of times. Gutted. When that happens I used to really take it to heart and it would pull me down but I’m just glad to be covering the distance again. I understand that my fitness had reduced because of one person; me. And, I’m the only one who can bring it all back again to what I’m happy with. It’ll come.
