Apologies for the lack of whimsy of late but they would have been filled with emotional torment and tales of chasing ladies around east London with mixed results… then I thought actually there is nothing wrong with that… in fact it is pretty much what I do. What ails me the most at the moment is my search for a little flatlet in Lower Clapton… but I have no new view point on this… flats are expensive and the people offering them for rent tend on the whole to be knobs*. I have started running** which is good… Rosie Lee has been helping me with the running in an act of unquestionable kindness/cruelty and I have sort of been keeping a training diary which you can look at below if you like talk of balls and pictures of shoes….
So please get your expenses to me by the close of play today and if you need any help please give me a shout…
*Apologies to any landlords in the company who are not knobs
** Posting pictures of my trainers on the internet and complaining about stuff
Dominic’s Training Diary- Harvested From Social Media.
Just done my first training run… I hate it when people come on facebook and talk about running…
I did 2 miles and did not pass out… I looked ok in my running stuff and was running around Shoreditch
so did not look like the biggest wanker by a long stretch..
I was wearing a nice pair of nikes probably too nice to run in…
Is this enough information or should I draw you a picture?
Today is training day two… these are trainers too good to be running in two.
Decided to not run but power walk everywhere looking very impressive!
Training Day 3… A picture of a cat playing guitar, the word athletic on my T-Shirt
and a pair of trainers too good to run in #3… I might even go for a run later…
as it is for a good cause.
SO interval training… it is much more training that interval. I am in a little bit of pain…
I wish there was some kind of liquid pain killer that can also refresh… TO THE PUB!
*insert picture of red tired looking man*
Where was the nice lady with the ice creams at every interval?…
instead there was a nice lady shouting at me!
