back home after three days away:
No run - not enough sleep on Wednesday night so too tired to do much by the time I got to the hotel in the evening after a long drive, a day's work and another drive.
An early start to the day when the hotel fire alarm went off at 4.00 am! Apparantly someone in a non smoking room set fire to their bedclothes!
At least the system seemed to work, and we were back inside in 15 minutes.
Up early for a run before our meeting - and I needed it - the meeting has the potential to be stressful, as some clashing personalities arriving. A great country park close to the hotel, so some good paths to run on and I did just over 4 miles. Was great to get past the toxic 20 and not think about running, but watch the wild life and relax.
Meetings went smoothly everybody behaved professionally and we acheived lots I think.
Finished work in time to put my feet up for 20 minutes and then go out for another plod. I thought I'd try a different route ands slightly misjudged the distance - only 2 miles, and although a running mate suggested I went out for another mile, I resisted.
Lovely relaxing dinner with three of the best colleagues - not too much shop but plenty of good chat - and also some reminders about why I don't want to go back in the classsroom.
Up early for another plod and another route - just 3 miles this morning, but now I am getting a feel for how the paths join up, so next time we are here I will be able to add a little distance easily.
Meetings went well this morning with lots of productive work done, so we were able to finish at lunchtime :>)
And I do not go away again until FLM weekend - so that has to be good :>))
And studentbeanz is coming home for a few days this week, which is even better :>))
March mileage was the most ever :>))
Apart from not having run longer than 14 miles in training I am feeling fairly good about FLM at the moment.
Even feeling so good I can bear to have the countdown clock up there (thanks to Leon and computerbeanz!)
