Ealing and onwards

Well, I am glad I am not David Cameron or a Tory. The Lib Dems had a great night on Thursday and then a fantastic weekend too.

The running and training starts properly now and am off to weightwatchers from tomorrow too so watch this space......

Running the Ealing Way

Well, I am not getting much running actually done, although with three staircases in the Ealing Southall HQ and the escalators on the Underground my calf muscles should be nicely developing.

Although this will depend on the diet at the by-election HQ, pizza, coke, pizza, more coke and then of course curry, chines and burgers and chips with the obligatory ketchup and mayo.

Last night, well this morning really, I did the Southall to Charing Cross dash, the target was to be in Charing Cross and on the train by 12.14am. Unfortunately, I failed on this one, so sat on the tube made the decision to stay on until Waterloo and try to catch the train up - failed again! So, I try a cab from Waterloo Sarf' of the river mate £50, I don't think so!

Then a brisk walk back over to Charing Cross to Heaven (no, not a night out, they offer a cab scheme) again £50.

So, plan C or is it D, anyhow so train from Charing Cross to Orpington leaving the station at 01.03am, arrives in Orpington at 01.36am and then a £33.40 cab ride to home in Dartford.

Into bed, eventually at 02.30. The alarm is set for 05.06am!

However did "Challenge Anneka" manage it............

Running in the sun - The tour de France

Well, what a bizarre Sunday, first couldn't get anywhere due to the Tour de France and how bad are ITV, just as they enter Dartford the adverts come on and when they finished the cyclists were out in Greenhithe!

Anyway, the shorts came out and off I went in the sun, with my new ipod in the fancy runners armband, although, it did work.

Ran out to Stone, and down East Hill then into town, around the one way system and back up Temple Hill - nearly into Costa coffee, but held off.

Once Ealing and Wyboston are out the way I need to step up a grea and enter a 5K race and a second one by early August.

Running, Ealing Southall and weight

Did another short burst on the exercise bike again this morning, but must do better. I am doing the Great North Run in 88 days so need to move this up a gear or three now.

Am back over in Ealing after doing lots of stationary orders yesterday for Ealing and Sedgefield.

So, shorts and tee shirts at the ready, but will the Ealing Southall by-election team be ready for the knees..........
