Has it been that long?

It been ages! I've been working away on some German translations of the Greendoor website. So now the Germans will know how cool a place it is to stay.

I've also added a new apartment to the alvehuset website, but that won't be live until tomorrow.

I had the misfortune of listening to the radio last night. I can't tell if it was 98 or fm104 but they were talking about Simon Cowell and his interview with his ex. The presenter said that she didn't think Simon Cowell was capable of a relationship!

WTF? Does she know him? Is she a pal, if she is why is she discussing his personal life with the radiowaves...

It's amazing what some people comment on. *

*Please note: I know the irony of commenting on commenting in a blog!


I got out and did a 16k run at the weekend and it felt fine. It was tough at the end, all because of the steep hill that's right at the end of my run.

I think I might try and find a different route to avoid that hill although it's probably better for me.

I went to Lucan Demesne to run and I have to say it is a lovely place to run, no cars no fumes, trees fields the liffey, perfect.

Crisis, what crisis?

Bank of Ireland announced there profits for the last 6 months. The last 6 months were the world's banks went into meltdown. The news was grim, profits had fallen 32%.

Wait a minute... Profits, not losses... Well they couldn't have been that good. Think again! Only €650 Million. I wouldn't mind having a crisis like that myself!!!

Can you have any sympathy for the banks with this sort of nonsense coming out.

Please note: I have worked in detail in treasury finance so I am well aware of the issues that make up this crisis.

I got out there on Sunday and did an 11k run, I went all over the place and it all felt good. It all felt a bit too easy until I got to a very steep hill and then I remembered how hard this running lark can be.

No real ill affects to report so I hope to do maybe a 15k at the weekend. I know that breaks the 10% rule but needs must.

I got out on Sunday and did a 7k run. It was a muddy muddy day. I nearly lost my runners at a few points! I did it in a lesiurely 42 minutes. I had some twinges in my knee but nothing major. I cycled into work today, so that is 12k each way so that should keep the fitness levels up.

Hopefully I will get out for a 10k at the weekend and take it from there.
