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.

Good little run this morning, some short distance personal bests. Ate food first, might be that that makes the difference.

After 3 good ones, bit of a crap run this morning, nearly half a minute per km slower than last time over this distance. Maybe because didn't eat first, wasn't sure if rain would stop me

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.

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

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.

Planned to go at lunchtime with couple of guys at work but one's hurt his foot & the other's forgotten his kit. Grrr, would rather have done it this morning with paths empty under veil of darkness if on my own.
