    Would hope that Dujardin had a contract clause that would give her a cut of that, seeing as she's why the horse is worth so much.

    Maybe it's the other way around and the horse is the real talent?

    Don't normally associate ultra marathon runners with luxury accommodation... Might float somebody's (speed) boat though I guess.

    Found this honeysuckle on the weekend.

    No need to destroy yourself completely but if you have a goal in mind and want to achieve it then consistency is important in training. Missing a session because it's a bit hot/cold/wet would mean you'd miss a lot of training in the UK. If it's not ideal weather on race day then this could be a valuable time to train (sensibly) and see how you deal with the heat.

    My original 2nd jab was booked for Fri 13th Aug, got a text today saying you can rebook for an earlier appt so it's now this Friday. Quite pleased to be more protected sooner given the way things are going.

    Newts are so cool, love them. We put a few efts on our pond last year but not seen any evidence of them since :(

    I set out at 0645 this morning and it was already warm. Home before 10 and I have been feeling dehydrated all day.

    I think you can be excused for struggling in this heat. Not really something you get a chance to acclimatise to in the UK!

    Disturbed an ants nest on the allotment earlier, a few flants in there but mainly just the normal workers. Probably set them back months of work. Sorry ants.

    First potatoes today, dug about 1x0.5m area and got a load. Still way more in the ground so will have potatoes for months by the looks of it!
