    What training did you do today...

    Garden fork & spade at that hour of the morning. I never start a motor till 8am at the very earliest, and usually leave it till someone else does.

    Sorry, only saw this now. Already swum. Just operating as a concerned resident who also has a bit of subject matter experience. They are trying to put us on a fixed wireless tower that will be servicing 3 times the recommended maximum number for a tower. Very easy 1km this morning, and just the very slightest couple of twinges in the shoulder. Nothing like it had been. I'll try to get out for another easy 1km during the week, and maintain a couple easy swims a week, as long as there is no real issue. Now off to walk the dog.

    Busy day today. Up early, work around the yard for an hour, take the dog for a short walk, then hit the gym at 6am before a breakfast meeting with a group looking to push a change to the NBN strategy in the valley here. Then all day in the yard. Felt great at the gym. First session where I really came away feeling wobbly in the legs, and put everything into the upper body work. Let's see how I feel at the dam in the morning for a real easy 1km.

    Getting Old

    Apparently my wife went grey a few years ago. I never realised.

    Getting Old

    I think we're all older than we think.

    Clover can fetch it that quick. It doesn't matter how fast they are, she matches them. She doesn't bother running. Far too smart for that. She just waits till they get back, grabs it off them & brings it to me.

    Can't swim hard because of the shoulder, so can't race. Especially if it means you'll beat me.

    Only a short gym session today. Had a shocker of a night, waking a few times with full on calf cramps, then 20 minutes into the gym this morning my right calf cramped right up again & that was the end of me. The only good thing I can take out of it is that it could be ketosis kicking in. I'll up the water & salt a bit and stretch that calf out a lot. Maybe try again tomorrow.

    Was up very late last night with work, so decided not to go to the gym this morning. I did get my 10,000 steps in though, and walked the dog when I got home this afternoon. That's more of an upper body work-out these days, as she has decided she wants to be a bird dog, and there's lots of quail in the area we walk. Gym tomorrow morning now, and maybe a swim Friday.

    Petrol Prices

    Must have been about '83, and I managed to get home from Unis with the 45c I could find scatted through the car after it ran out of fuel on Sir Fred Schonnel Drive. I think that was nearly 1.5 litres at the time.

    Letter of Demand?

    Happy ending to this one. After sending the letter through last week, my daughter spoke to the other party's insurance company this afternoon, and they have contacted one of the panel beaters she went to to organise the repairs. They've agreed with her that it was the other party's fault, and she won't be out of pocket for the repairs.

    The good news thread

    Well, I finally had some good yesterday. After all the misery of having to tell people they didn't have a job anymore, over the past couple of weeks, I had one of the guys that won a position knock it back as he'd got an offer from the sales area that he was chasing. This enabled me to go to the guy who was next in the list and offer him a position. He was due to leave the company tomorrow. The delight & excitement in his voice once it sunk in was such a pick-me-up.
