Breaking World Records

9th April 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

A brilliant article I found today tells the story of a message in a bottle which has been found 101 years after it was thrown into the sea in Germany in 1913. After a fisherman found it, researchers set to work to find out who it belonged to and who it was meant for. Researchers were able to determine that the message was written by 20 year old Richard Platz who threw the bottle into the Baltic while on a hike with a nature appreciation group in 1913. A Berlin based genealogical society then tracked down a living relative; his 62 year old granddaughter. Unfortunately, most of the ink on the note had been affected due to the length of time it had been in the bottle and also the sea water. It could actually be the world’s oldest message in a bottle ever found. The previous record holder spent 98 years in the sea and was dated 1914. What was written on the note is something that got Simon thinking, he loves a good conspiracy! The tale started off with me talking about the message in the bottle and ended with Simons conclusion that the note was actually a warning of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and that the First World War could have been prevented!!!!!!!

Steve Cram was back in the studio today and with less than 4 weeks to go he seemed pleased with my progress. He loved the fact that I’ve added variation to my training for the 10k by joining the gym and he wants me to stick to my 2 gym sessions a week. He was also pleased with my new running trainers as he said it’s essential that I have a decent pair of shoes. Seeing as I’m training at a steady rate, he doesn’t want to add to my training sessions this week, so it looks like I’ll continue to do a 50 minute and two 30 minute runs, as well as a hill run and my 2 gym sessions. Next week he wants to focus on long distance running...............I hope he’s not expecting me to sign up for any marathons any time soon. Baby steps Steve, let’s see if I get through this first.
