Another crap run this morning, was aiming for a post-injury best but ended up 15 s/km slower than last time. Dunno what's wrong, been doing things by the book & worked hard, at the end the dripping sweat sounded like rain.

Terrible run this morning: feeling exhausted, several different pains. Don't know why as Tuesday's went well, this was 2 min/km slower.

Good info-graphic which is much easier and quicker to read than the Guardian Long Read thats been in my Pocket for a week or so. Still pretty long though.

Great piece on index typewriters, (i.e., not QWERTY), their varieties, their impact. For the old-typewriter/machine nerds, lots of cool photos!

"[I]ndex typewriters played an important role in making new tools and technology for ‘writing’ approachable, new manuscript practices, new design considerations acceptable and popular"

Thought: "It's been two working hours and the school, PTA, class and year groups haven't bugged me, I wonder if email is down?"

It's time to accept that my fancy-ass breakfast muesli has got out of hand. Added chopped plum, broken cashews, dash of syrup, yoghurt and almost ate it before realising I'd forgotten to add the actual muesli.
