I completed the dreaded week 5 run 3 of the C25k programme this morning( its the biggest jump up in running time during the 9-week programme) I had to go back a few weeks after injuring my knees for over a month and not being able to run but built back up and feeling good about running again. It was tough, but I still felt I had a little in the tank at the end so I'm feeling upbeat about being able to run 5k by the end of the programme.

Yesterday I was talking to my younger son, who said he was feeling a bit 'meh'. I said I was feeling like that too and when he asked why, I said it was because of the letter I got about my heart Then I said "also, I've got something stuck in my teeth' And I did a little mime to show that was more annoying than having something wrong with my heart, and he laughed and mimed 'wet socks' being above that, and then we both laughed and mimed 'socks falling down inside your wellies' as being at the absolute top of rubbish things to have wrong with you.

I'm pretty devastated that the ecg has found something wrong with my heart, so I was pleased I could make light of it for my son and make sure that the atmosphere in my house stays upbeat and cheerful, even though I wake up feeling suicidal a lot of the time at the moment.

It seems like you have a lot of fun with your son
I hope your heart trouble is minor and the suicidal feelings go away soon.

I finally succumbed to my first eccentric middle-aged-man-in-his-40s activity and bought some litter pickers to clean up my local heath. I could probably collage my entire bathroom with the used condom wrappers.

^^ aww Nanuq, I'm so sorry that they have found something on the heart ecg. Hopefully it's been detected early and there will be a positive course of action. Hope you're alright. Whenever I see things about long Covid I often feel sad and wonder how you're doing, hope that doesn't sound creepy.

^ aw yay. I often see this man around picking up the litter and think, "what a dude.". I keep wanting to take part in a beach clean up but don't live near the beach. Maybe I can time a beach holiday with one.

Thanks Biscuits! I also went foraging for stinging nettles to make into some soup and with my rubber gloves and bin liner I'm worried I might get a reputation for looking like the local weirdo serial killer

Hahaha stinging your victims with stinging nettles. What does stinging nettle soup taste like?

When I was a child I used to suck the flowers on nettles, tasted so gooood. (Trying to block out the retrospective thought that a dog might have wee-ed on them. eeek haha)

Do you mean white dead nettles? They look like stinging nettles but don't sting, and they have cute white flowers with nectar which is what makes them sweet.

Stinging nettle soup is very tasty, difficult to describe. But you have to augment with seasoning, butter, cream etc otherwise it's horrible. Also best to blend it into a smooth paste otherwise it looks rather unappetising!

^ yep, the little white flowers on the nettles when the leaves don't sting ya anymore. They taste so noice.

I love soups, so would be up for trying it. Oh that sounds interesting! I was expecting it to be like a caldo verde style soup. I'd love to see a picture of it the next time you make it if possible.

A bit thrown together, but still very tasty! Ideally should look like a smooth paste with an arty bit of cream swirled on the top otherwise it sort of resembles sick!

^ I also did some litter picking today. Two big shopping bags with rubbish.

And I'm a fan of nettles as well! Not as good as wild garlic, but easier to get hold of.

^^ There's acres of wild garlic near me at the moment

Well done on the litter picking counterpoint! That's brilliant, I always admire people who get out and try and clean up the local area.

Well done dustyfied. It does feel good doing your small bit for the community. I need to develope this side of myself more as I think I have a tendancy to be a bit insular and self-centred, so I thought litter picking would be a good thing to do. I care very much for the natural environment and littering really annoys me.

Hehe, not so much a direct Bach reference, just reference to music in general as I am a composer! But Bach is amazing. My favourite interpreter is either Glenn Gould or Angela Hewitt, who I met once and she signed a CD for me. Do you play a musical instrument?

^ Wow, hats of for being a composer! It must be great to be able to compose music. I had guitar lessons in my teens and leaned just about enough to appreciate proper musicians.

I'll have to look up Angela Hewitt. I mostly know Tatiana Nikolayeva.

^Thanks, but I do often wish I'd studied to be a doctor or lawyer or something!!

Oh yes, I know Tatiana Nikolayeva. Her Goldberg Variations recording is classic, one the best.

I can only do a few chords on the guitar! I hope you still play from time to time?!
