yes, the sun is shinning, it's a light blue cloudless sky and just a slight breeze. all this i can see from my bed! post kielder i was rota'd three consecutive 'long days'. 100 miles is nothing compared to those three shifts! i'm really enjoying work but it's going to be a while before i get used to the long hours again.
amazingly i've managed lose 5lbs of my 'office fat' without even noticing. which is all good and going to make my return to running a little easier. i've a half marathon in 10 days. i ran 3 miles on tuesday evening and it hurt. a lot.
gross self portrait-a small selection of the 68 bites i sustained from my midge assault at kielder. the astute may also notice yet another toe nail about to fall off. at least they don't itch anymore but i do look quite contagious in my running shorts!
