I am going to stick strictly to the workout today. No commenting on my hosts, no, ... I am going to refrain from this negativity that has entered my narrative – disgraceful, I chastise myself.
No, nothing negative … but ... I will just observe that it is President's Day over there in the US of A, and I will simply say, 'How lucky you are !!'
OK, started out with 100 m loosen up – bit of this and a bit of that, and sometimes you know they add up – NO, no, hang on, I detect I'm slipping into Clouseau parody territory … this must stop, Non?
So all done, I felt I was particularly talented in the shower afterwards, if I do say so myself.
Haven't heard back from the folks I e-mailed re competing on the 23rd. Believe I already mentioned I was suggesting that, if they were not open to foreign entrants, I would go “hors concours” i.e. I don't count in the competition results. We'll see … but I have my suspicions … you see I suspect everyone, and I suspect no-one … Stop! I'm off on a Clouseau reverie again … but he was good! Sellers early ones I mean, lesser so the later, and then absolutely NOT the lame Steve Martin train-wreck – sorry, Steve, but you just don't want to come on after Peter Sellers; it was, as they say in England nowadays, “PANTS!”
Next workout: Thursday 20th Feb.
