Update on Chris Froome sounds very positive.
He had an open compound fracture of the femur plus ribs and elbow.
Funnily enough the elbow would be the one more likely to cause problems with cycling (if it isn’t set right)
I totally feel his pain, almost 20 years to the day since I fractured my femur.
Terrible and unfortunate accident for Froomie last night. This will change the dynamic of both Team Ineos and Le Tour.
It wasn’t the only accident of the day as Marianne Vos went down in a horrible looking crash in the OVO Energy Women’s Tour. Luckily she is okay but was unable to continue.
Today, I didn’t really want to run.
Yesterday, I didn’t want to do anything at all!
If we travel back to Saturday morning I couldn’t wait to get out in the rain, directing my @mkparkrun
The weather has been pretty much the same across all three days, damp to wet.
So what was different?
My motivation and where it came from.
Saturday was all about helping others and the social interaction.
Yesterday was a sleep deprived attempt at exercise when I should really have had a doze or two rather than trying to fight it. In retrospect I should have been kinder to myself. Then I would have felt more buoyant today. As it was I had no choice. I can’t let down my @redwayrunners interval group.
And once I was out the rain was ok. It reminded me of good times, the smell was fantastic, it wasn’t cold, my group did amazingly well, and their smiles fuelled me.
I will remember that next time I’m not in the mood.
Another positive - I don’t have to water the garden
I have been guiltier than post is posting negatively recently. Its a bit if a challenge when all we hear is darkness. Just remember that light is brighter, and you don't get a star that shines much brighter than Keanu.
Enjoy, and share the happiness with everyone you see today.
Refreshingly inscrutable, Reeves seems like a considerate man who moves through the world mostly alone; he’s aware of his celebrity status but doesn’t take advantage of it, and he’s generous but careful with his presence.
We all love a biscuit, don't we?
I don't eat them very often, mainly because it does seem a little too easy to eat half* a packet.
So are we best to abstain, or understand the implications of eating one? As the post says, it is all about balance and understanding. Much as it pains me to say so, there are times when I do prefer an apple to a biscuit. So when I do have a biccy I really do appreciate it.
