“I Told You So” - Johnny Warren

I didn’t make it to the BBQ Stakes today. I had wanted to go and catch up with my good friends, check out Lowes and their "Girly Girl" T-shirts, not to mention buying some new gear at the Runners Shop! Having workmen around to fix our kitchen intervened.

Already at 5pm, going outside is just like entering a walk-in freezer. At least there is no breeze. I have returned from a 20k run; just me, gloves, long-sleeve top, MP3 music player, and Mr Flibble who told me the distance was the 20km I always guessed it was, or close enough. That's the fifth day in a row I have run 16k or more.

The altitude varied from 560m to 660m above sea level. My house, the start and finish point, is at 600m.

The songs that accompanied me today were
Beautiful Day – U2
Beauty In Me – The Whitlams
Been Away Too Long – The Whitlams
Politik (Live) – Coldplay
Roots In Stereo – P.O.D.
Square One – Coldplay
Talk – Coldplay
Fondness Makes The Heart Grow Absent – The Whitlams
God Put A Smile On Your Face (Live) – Coldplay
Lights Out – P.O.D.
Sleeping Sun – Coldplay
Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of – U2
What If – Coldplay
White Horses – The Whitlams
A Rush Of Blood To The Head (Live) – Coldplay
Beautiful As You – The Whitlams
Elevation – U2
Gravity – Coldplay
If You Could See Me Now – P.O.D.
I Was Alive – The Whitlams
White Shadows - Coldplay
Fix You – Coldplay
Goodbye For Now – P.O.D.
One I Love (Live) – Coldplay
Second Best – The Whitlams
Walk On – U2
Year Of The Rat – The Whitlams - “Everyone’s a Star”

Finally it's great when people add their comments because then it's not just a monologue. Thanks cool Karmin, lovely Lulu, dashing Don, burley Griffin, and every last goose out there.

  1. thank you! you're cool too =) i'll keep on commenting then! =)

  2. Great playlist for a cruisey 20k.

  3. Geoff,

    I posted two comments on this post last night and they both disappeared, a real shame...

    I did get a message after they disappeared though, something about your engineers looking into it, and that the lost messages would be re-instated; but unfortunately they weren't !

    Oh well, that's modern technology for you.

    I have decided not to run the Terry Fox Fun Run, I am going to go for a three to four hour run on my own instead !

    I need to get some miles back into my lazy legs.

    I really liked your choice of music for your last run...I put that in my reply too!

    Hope you had a great session at Dickson, I so wish I could be there with you guys, but that's what happens when you decide to change jobs.

    Gotta go Geoff.

    Yours in Running Writing
