Friday lunchtime Scanners picks me up from work and we head westwards for a rendezvous with a Ryan Air freedom bird.
Our timing was precise…..we had to give ourselves plenty of time for some Pina Colada, our habitual drink of choice as we make our way to our respective other halves in the land south of Hadrians protective wall.
What we did not account for was some feckin’ road works coming down the A77 causing a 2 mile tailback. There was a brief moment of panic not that we’d miss the flight, but that sitting here idle was eating into our cocktail hour!!
Disaster was averted as we arrived at Prestwick to be advised of a 1 hour delay. A chorus of ‘ya beauty’ rang round the departure lounge as we set about clearing them out of Pina Colada before moving on to Cosmopolitans ;) This delay meant that Pirate Boy was finished work and in the pub when I arrived.
Oh well…. When in Rome and all that.
Had a nice evening in the company of a mixed bag of Blue Watches’ finest.
I think it’s time I put all this socialising behind me and get on with some proper training.
I take a bit of a slagging about being a running club president but doing very little actual running.
Well, I have just agreed to something that means I really WILL have to do some proper training. PPPPPP and all that.
Anyone got a marathon training plan they can lend me? And no Pirate Boy, I will not be following your training schedule of apply, rest for 6 months, get up and run following 10 pints.
I really must work harder on saying NO.
