C25K Redux: The Return to Fitness

Barring a run along the beach a couple of weeks ago, it's been almost a year since I've been running. I know, I know, it's shameful.

I could say it's because we've been living in climates which are too hot to run it but it would be an excuse because early in the morning, it's fine. I could say that there haven't been any suitable places in which to run but if I'd really wanted to, I'd have found somewhere. The truth is that I've just got lazy... and it shows.

30 Things: #11 - Describe 10 Pet Peeves You Have

At first I thought this was going to be easy-peasy but now I've had a think about it, I seem to be far more chilled and laid-back than I thought I was! Go me! Of course, that's not to say I don't have any peeves...

  1. Lazy spelling and grammar. Some folk genuinely have issues, and for some, English is not a first language - these folk are not the problem... the issue I have is when they ought to know better; books, papers, magazines, adverts, in-store marketing material, road signs, etc. Printers, publishers, and signmakers - hire good proofreaders... please!
  2. Text-talk. ORLY? inorite? kthx!
  3. Mosquitoes. I love living in tropical climates... and the mosquitoes love me. Telling me I have 'sweet blood' is not adequate compensation for parts of my body looking like a 3D map of the Himalayas.
