managed to run 6x(3+1) last night, up from the previous 7x(2+1). Took the HRM with me to check I wasn't over/under-doing it, and allowing me to collect some stats. (Mmmm, stats). It basically says I managed to stay "in the zone" for about 29 minutes. Of course, the zone boundaries are just the usual rule-of-thumb guesstimates from my age, so perhaps not amazingly accurate. But it's a good deal better than I was when I first got the thing, I seem to remember. Although I don't seem to have written down any stats for running with it before. Grrr. Oh, found one. Hmmm. Equivocal.

I'll have filled up my food/exercise log book by around January. I'm not going to do anything excessively nerdy like putting the info on LJ because that would be, well, excessively nerdy, and *far* too uninteresting for everyone but me. I might start putting stuff into a database though-- i used to have a db full of the timings for cycling to work back when I was working in Theale.

That reminds me, I need to get out on the bike again. It's been weeks. I've replaced my cycle computer AGAIN, I keep losing the damn things. (Buying a cheap Halford's own brand is the right decision in retrospect).

Mmmm... microwaved lemon sole fillets with new potatoes. Simple but effective.

Cycled to Highdown to go swimming again. My legs seem to be getting the idea now; I can lie on my front and simply kick my way down the pool without sinking. Need to get in the habit of keeping that up and keeping to the breathing rhythm now.

Now winding up with a glass of port... me so posh!
