  1. Hoping to get back out and running this evening after a week off with my second dose of Covid this year. 8 pounds down since Christmas and hoping to drop at least the same again before the festival.
  2. Bagged some tickets for Future Islands in Cardiff in November 🎉
  3. Saw Gang of Youths at O2 Academy in Bristol Wednesday night and they were bloody fantastic!
  4. 13/18 still going from my group.
  5. Gave yesterday, donation number 15, didn’t have the biscuits I like though 😕
  6. Back at the running after a prolonged break, after my Half Marathon last September I haven’t really done any. So going to have to build up slowly as I feel like I’ve lost a lot of fitness. Hoping to be back in shape for Glastonbury, which is definitely happening this year!
  7. I ran the Bristol half, and the signage and marshalling directing runners right and left for 10k and Half was pretty clear, unless you were completely zoned out I don’t know how you’d miss it.
  8. Well it was a lot warmer than I would have liked, but I managed to get round the Bristol Half. Although it was a PB I still didn’t manage to come in under 1 hr 50 mins like I wanted, happy with 1:52 though, always next time.
  9. Thanks for the advice, I will definitely listen to it coming from someone with your experience! 🏃🏃
  10. What would be advise for a taper for a half marathon? I have Bristol Half on Sept 19th, I did a 18km on Sunday and a 10km last night, I was intending to do two more 10km’s this week and a 16km on Sunday, then perhaps one, possibly two, 5kms next week. Am I overdoing it or slowing too soon?
  11. 2 couples now have lockdown babies so dropped out and requested balance monies returned. The final couple have been invited to a wedding aboard the same weekend, they have yet to request the balance money back.
  12. If it helps give some hope to the ticketless, we were a group of 16 going to Glastonbury 2020, we are now down to 10.
  13. They definitely have them on the royal gate entrance Hackney side, my girlfriend got pulled out by the pup despite only having some lemsip on her
  14. When we went in yesterday at 2pm there was no queue, on approach to the gate they checked our COVID pass, then scanned our tickets but didn’t ask us for ID. Then had coats/bags searched and had to walk through a metal detector then past dogs (had three mates come in at the same time who were carrying and they didn’t get detected by the dogs). I took in a pouch of rum which was easy enough to do, then only had to buy cans of coke and ask for cups with ice at the bars.
  15. First gig back last night, Royal Blood we’re amazing, crowd energy levels were through the roof, all round sweaty and enjoyable! Bring on the next one.
  16. Lots to look forward to now: Royal Blood, All Points East (28th & 30th), Ben Howard, New Order, Elbow and Bristol Dot2dot Festival all before October.
  17. Only after two, my girlfriends mom has just told us she managed to get them through O2 Priorities! Absolutely chuffed, cannot wait!
  18. Well that was a joke, they just immediately went to Tickets Not Available. Guess they all went in the presale? Why even bother advertising today’s sale!
  19. Trying for Bristol Royal Blood tickets this morning, if I succeed then in two weeks I’ll be going to my first gig since 2019! (I was travelling Asia Jan-Mar 2020).
  20. If there any more pre sale codes for Royal Blood that no one is using, I’d greatly appreciate it?
  21. I’ve had a bit of a break from running due to pain in my right leg which I think is shin splints. Went for a run Monday night and was sore but okay afterwards. Went again last night and pushed the distance a bit, pain is back and worse … oh dear.
  22. Congrats, that’s well impressive!

    Lorde

    Been waiting patiently for the new Lorde track and now knowing it’s out there but I can’t listen to it is very frustrating!
  24. Managed my first 10km this year, after how out of shape I’ve become, I’m quite happy with 55mins. Mostly because I was so hungover there was a 90% chance I wouldn’t make it. Now just to get that down to 48mins and then double the distance but maintain the pace...
  25. Went to the pub on Saturday, accidentally stayed 8 hours and I’m still feeling rough now, don’t regret going, just regret those last two (three?) pints.
