Today I am 12,000 days old. The 90 days of this year so far have been ok.
I ran 140 miles.
My pace isn’t great; my best run was probably a 7 miler where I averaged 8:30 miles. On the Bath half I crumbled over the last few miles and ended up average 9:45 miles. I’ve got the Warwick half on Sunday, it’ll be the first half that I’ve run by myself so I’ll see how it goes.
Oddly, I feel like I’ve been exercising less. I think I’ve been running for longer distances less frequently.
Warwick Castle. Charlecote. Oxford. I met a very little lamb, some giant rabbits and a turkey near York. Haven’t had many new experiences, though I’ve been generally keeping myself busy. Could do with some new adventures; I’m thinking it might be fun to round up all my little people and take them to the zoo for my birthday.
Something made Milly very anxious a couple of months ago and she licked her legs bare but the fur seems to be growing back now.
The garden is looking pretty decent, certainly ready for some planting.
I’ve neglected the stack of boxes Mum and Dad dropped off containing the contents of my bedroom at home (I’m almost certain it’s mostly stationary).
I’ve been pretty good at only watching things I want to watch (I can’t remember the last time I just put the TV on and flicked channels). I hit a bit of a wall on the reading front, Station Eleven was very clever but I found it tough to get through.
I currently have a surfeit of comics, games and films. I need to reduce spending and increase consumption.
For the next few months I think:

Board with Life is brilliant. If you don’t believe me watch this (featuring Rich Sommer of Mad Men, Firewatch, Elementary); if you do believe me, start here.

Turns out there are far more themed Monopolies that I ever imagined. I’ve been babysitting John’s KISSopoly for a few years now and there are all the city variations but on the dog front alone there’s:
Puppyopoly, Dogopoly (plus Dachshundopoly, Pugopoly, Boxopoly, Labopoly, Yorkieopoly, I swear there’s one for every breed), Catopoly, Horseopoly, Wineopoly, Farmopoly, Bibleopoly, Photopoly, Ponyopoly, Baconopoly, Pirateopoly, Cocktailopoly, Fairyopoly, Princessopoly, Cycleopoly, Hold’emopoly, Fishingopoly, Penguinopoly, Earthopoly, Spaceopoly, Golfopoly, Candyopoly, Monsteropoly, Irelandopoly, Stitchopoly, Snowmanopoly, Bookopoly, Scubaopoly, Chocolateopoly, Rodeopoly, Zombieopoly, Dinopoly, Brewopoly.
It goes on. I guess it’s an incredibly low effort way to dish out a game.

This might rival the Jules Winnfield, “Does he look like a bitch?” As the coolest thing anyone’s done with Guess Who.
