Glee-ful tempos.

I've had a few cracking tempo runs in the last few weeks. Two mile warm-up and then five-miles of tempo..all courtesy of the new Glee soundtrack. I defy anyone not to up the anti to Halo/Walking on Sunshine mash-up. I was practically running along the side of walls.

Feb 16: 7.37, 7.39, 7.37, 7.27, 7.10 (ave 7.30)
Feb 22: 7.35, 7.25, 7.40, 7.31, 7.01 (ave 7.27)
March 1: 7.43, 7.28, 7.31, 7.19, 7.07 (ave 7:26)

The next week or so is going to prove quite challenging, as we're moving house on Friday. The new purchase is a project and a half.

I'm taking tomorrow off work to pack, as I've barely put a dent in it. I'm sending Sonic to work and Cairn to nursery, so I can get peace to get on with it.

You know how I'm convinced Sonic does certain things to get out of certain chores? Like how he puts the bowls face up on the draining board after washing up. Well, this is a little treasure. I know I shouldn't mock him after he (by his own omission) saved my life on Saturday, but this is too good to pass up.

After using half the bubble-wrap supply to careful pack away his X-box, he marked the box "Breakable". When I pointed out that maybe "fragile" would be more appropriate label he actually tried to clarify the difference between breakable and fragile...And then tried to rectify is by drawing a wee smiley face.

Yep, you got it, he's going to work tomorrow. And if he plays his usual cards, he'll get in lots of training over the next week or so.

Ugh moving house - very exciting, but hideous packing. Moving far or just new house in same area? Hope it goes ok.

Glee songs - totally fab - could imagine that would produce a good run, much along the same effect Beyonce, I'm a survivor! I can't listen to my mp3 player at the mo' or poor wee babba would have no O2 while I blasted along to my tunes!

Enjoy the house move!

Looking forward to the HWP!

I would help but I too have to go to work. And I have an important date on Saturday Morning.
