You're my Venus
First of all a warning. This post really does contain too much information.
But don't worry. It's not some ghastly nonsense by Bananarama or some sticky valentine twaddle. The first thing I want to tell you is I got up the other morning and saw this very bright light in the sky. At first I thought it was a plane, but it didn't move. So then I set out to get a photo. Then I googled it. Apparently Venus is exceptionally bright in the morning sky this February.
The next thing is;
I wouldn't normally do a pre-race report but it's the Carnethy 5 race today and I'm exhausted already. I know I'm just a string of physical complaints these days, but, well I am. So my latest thing has been quite a few days of a dodgy tummy. For some reason my colon seems to want to fill up with fluid and fire it out. I try not to take drugs for things these days but I woke up this morning to hear, issuing from my intestines, the whole soundtrack of 'Walking with Dinosaurs'. It made me think I need to take control of this if I can - so I've been down to Tesco's and got myself packets of Loperamide and anything else I could see that might slow this thing down...
Now I just feel tired. I've been trying to study but I can't concentrate, so I thought I'd have a bit of a blog.
Not looking forwards to standing around in a cold field with 100s of other hill runners this afternoon. Wish me luck.
