Letting off some steam

My Garmin didn’t want to pick up a signal in the back garden, so I sat at the bus stop at the back of my house and tried it there. While I was waiting there was a young boy across the road throwing a ball against a wall. My back wall. As my Garmin had eventually decided to pick up a signal, I decided to let him live and went on my way.

As I was approaching the mosque the doors opened and out spilled dozens of people. I decided it would be fun if I didn’t stop or slow down and to see how many I could knock down by running through them. Unfortunately they mostly got out of my way, shame. Next time I’ll run faster.

Still, I managed to let off some steam and forget about the B&Q fuckwits for a while. Now it’s time for my dinner and a hot bath. Oh well, one out of two’s not bad I suppose.

Heart rate monitor training will resume on Saturday when I go to the park and run round it as fast as I can for 3 minutes or until I want to puke (as Julie has advised.¬† The book¬† didn’t mention anything about running ’til I puke (funny that) but I’ll take her word for it) to find out my maximum heart rate. Although, I could probably just monitor it the next time I speak to B&Q, that would probably work just as well.
