When you see things being blown about, which have no business being off the ground at all, you know things are not right. You think of scenes from documentaries about tornadoes in the US, where combine-harvesters are thrown around like pieces of paper! Of course, the series of storms currently battering the British Isles are not in this league, but when I was running once I felt extremely uncomfortable when large pieces of tree started landing on the road in front of me. Not that I’m a complete wus, wind can be “character building” but today was supposed to be a gym day in any case. Since the gym would have involved dodging trees in the car, I took the quality command decision to do the excercises at home.
The whole balance thing including those lateral hops, bridges, lateral step-ups and the dreaded foam roller; all good.
It’s Friday evening though and I needed to go out this evening because what I do on Fridays is run Cafe Friday at Rothwell Baptist Church, our community cafe. Parents (or anyone else for that matter) can chill with a coffee & cake or toastie, while the children have a whale of a time in Friday Club. If you want to come along do so, from 5:50 – 7-30 PM Friday during term time.
To be honest, for me, that was excercise enough. Bring on the running tomorrow.
