Just did a short run today of 3.5 miles and with Fleet.
All five us (not including Fleet, although he’d probably love tearing back
and forth) played badminton tonight, brilliant fun. I haven't played badminton
in ages and we all had so much fun that we decided to book another court again
for next Tuesday evening.
What was even better is that it transpired that I had pre-purchased
badminton sessions from ages and ages ago so I didn't have to pay tonight and
have two more prepaid sessions :-) I
cherish these moments of fortune more than I should.
However, we all had grubby hands as the grip tape on most of our rackets is
perishing so I will have to seek out a suitable supplier of grip tape. We have
six rackets and I've replaced the grip on only one of them (I think). Plus my
youngest son wants his own racket too so the saving on courts (not a real
saving I suppose given that it was a prepayment) will contribute to a new
racket and grip tape. I'm sure I remember putting grip tape on was quite
The badminton seems to have helped my legs too; they feel much better now
... I wonder how they will feel tomorrow? But I must be positive ;-)
My Janathon total is now 71 miles and Fleet's is 33 miles.
