After Sean came back from Canada and spent a week or two here, getting out of bed in the mornings and leaving him behind to go for a run before work seemed a lot harder. *grin* So my exercise regime has deteriorated somewhat since then, especially seeing as Sean gave me fresher’s flu (and also unfortunately gave it to Jon – or at least, that’s who Jon is blaming). So today was my first run after several weeks of little exercise beyond callouts – I haven’t even been out walking that much. On top of that all that, I was recovering from a cold.

So how did I do? Quite well, actually. Although I could feel the difference having not been running for a while, and the joys of coughing up what’s remaining of this cold, I managed my circuit in 48m28s – not bad considering I would be aiming for 45mins when healthy.

Hopefully, all this is going to pay off when it comes to Scotland in March. Woo.

    Sean unfortunately also gave you Jon? Well that’s how it reads Aled!

    Whoops. Corrected. 🙂

    Although, more teh other way around – Jon gave me Sean, but that’s a whole different conversation (involving gimp masks)…

  3. Jon says:

    … although I feel compelled to point out that I wasn’t the one wearing the gimp mask …


  4. Sean says:


    Gimp masks are not involved.

    And I haven’t even seen you since I started uni Jon. Blame Aled.

    Sean said:
    Gimp masks are not involved.

    Oh, but I beg to differ


  6. Sean says:

    Not physically involved.

  7. Elaine says:

    I’m still trying to figure out who gave what to whom, and could someone please explain what a gimp mask is, whether or not it was physically or metaphysically involved.

    (Trust the Brits to massacre the English language far more than they would allow us colonials.)

    And … whenever someone says “Run Forrest” I have a mental image of Ents … lumbering … across the ground. (Your choice as to which is the worse pun.)

  8. Sean says:

    Hmm.. best way to put it is… uh.. bondage hood.

    Need I say more?

  9. Elaine says:

    I’m afraid you’ll have to be more explicit, Sean.

    (No, really never mind … I don’t think I actually want to know.)

    (In Canada, calling someone a gimp means that they’ve got a physical deformity, like a ‘gimp leg’, or they walk with a limp. I don’t know nothin’ about no bondage aspect …)

    That’s a gimp mask. As made famous by Pulp Fiction.
