First one home gets a brownie

Work was a right pain in the bum today, I don’t know what they’ve done, making six of us redundant, now they’re asking for miracles. We can only do so much work in one day! In case you’re wondering what this has to do with running, today was not good. Got to the train station in the morning and it was shut so had a nice 15 minute walk in the rain to the tube. Wasn’t actually that bad, as had my iPod for company. Then work was a right pain, then missed two trains on the way home due to the Central Line being crap, so was thinking shall I go home via the off licence or go out for a run? The run won! Wasn’t sure if work was being such a pain in some sort of quest to drive me back to smoking on non smoking day. Two women at work are currently taking steps to stop. One’s borrowed my Allen Carr book and another has bought it today, so good for them and good luck.

Anyway, this is supposed to be a running blog so here’s a running bit. Did all 3 lots of 8 minutes running / 2 minutes walking without stopping, so yay for doing that twice this week. Not sure it’s doing it comfortably though, so shall see on Sunday which I think is going to be my next run how easy I do it and whether or not I should repeat this week. But then again, I suppose Sunday’s run is going to depend on Saturday’s drinking but I think I’m staying in. Am out boozing with Joy, Mariana and Ilaria on Friday so will take it easy on Saturday. Heh heh, famous last words.

Got home to find Gary on my doorstep with a chocolate brownie. This is a big chocolate brownie, as he works in a bakers and they make slabs of it. Not really the food for a finely tuned athlete (heh heh) but I’m sure it won’t go to waste. Then while he was waiting for the bus, he opened a bottle of Budvar. I’m sure today people are trying to make me crack and be unhealthy, but they won’t get me! Am hungry though, better go and try out the chocolate brownie. I’m going to take some to work tomorrow so it would probably be best to test it first and make sure it’s ok.
