I don't miss the stress of being a scrum master here, but I do miss being able to enforce 5 minute standups instead of 25 minutes including general whinging.
Kid managed like a champ at the dentist, on the way home now
Have to take the kid to dentist today for a bit of work. Feel so sorry for the poor kid, I never had so many health problems as him. He faces it all so bravely.

Also while I'm being right wing, my son was watching a Mr Men & Little Misses DVD this morning, and the employers of Dillydale really need to stop hiring Miss Whoops & Miss Calamity to do jobs involving transport or heavy equipment. Despite their positive attitude they're simply not up to it.
Managed to squeeze in a dumbbell workout too. Only problem is knowing at 6:10 AM that the most productive part of the day is over.
Another good run today, personal best over 5km. Overall time looks average though, slowed to a crawl after 5km as I was completely cream crackered.

Good run today, personal best over flat 10km, maybe that last hilly work run did me some good

Not sure about these trousers. In the shop they were grey & had slight crease so got them for work, but soft fabric doesn't seem to hold crease, so trying them for casual Friday. Also since I started running everything that fits around the waist seems tight around the calves, everything comfortable around calves has huge bunch of loose/bubble fabric around upper arse, can't find anything that fits.
Urgh. I have terminal insomnia where I wake up too early. Normally try to get to bed early but was out last night, still woke up at 4AM, will be a wreck for the day.
