To strike or not to strike......that is the question

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

With some schools closed today due to a teachers strike, a few of you vented your frustration on Facebook. Comments that were posted were pretty much split down the middle – some were for the strike and others weren’t. Now I’m going to try and be as diplomatic as possible: I understand that a lot of parents have had to use holidays at work so that they can look after their kids because the schools are closed and I can see how that would be frustrating, but then on the other hand if you’re not a teacher, how can you question the reasons behind their strike???? I suppose that’s a debate in itself.

Steve Cram was back today to give me my running tips for week 4. The last 3 weeks have flown by and I’m impressed at my own motivation to go out running after I’ve been to work. Steve looked pleased that I’ve stuck to his training plan, which is good as I definitely don’t want to let him down. He said that because I’ve now got a routine going, and I’ve added variation to my sessions I should now try to focus on adding some distance. He wants me to add a few hill sessions to keep my heart rate moving around and also extend one of my running sessions to 40 minutes instead of 30. If like me you’re training for the 10k for the first time, then you should listen to Steve’s tips over the last 3 weeks, they’ve been really beneficial for me, and if I can do it anyone can!!

Round 3 of our new competition ‘Champ or Grill’ didn’t go as planned this morning.........John Paul was a loser!! He actually thought that Veal Oscar and Lobster Newberg were names of sports stars...............Aw well, tune in for tomorrow’s chance to bag yourself those VIP tickets to the launch night of Champs Bar & Grill in Washington on Friday.
