    Also, the trail race at the weekend gets more ridiculous as we have been kicked out of the hotel we're meant to be staying in afterwards (before we've even checked in!) because we are forrin... so we are now going to take sleeping bags so we can sleep on the mountain. In the rain. FFS.

    First injuries (not me, for once) in the Julyathon challenge so walking is also now allowed. I've redone my plan to move about 15km a week to walks, which I can hopefully do at lunchtimes, pollution and rainy season allowing. Still a hell of a lot of running ahead.

    Interestingly (well not really) I'm now breaking even more rules by writing about democracy and independence (amongst other non-ccp friendly things) from within mainland China but on a VPN hosted in HK. Break alllll the rules!

    What can I say, I didn't go to school for maths!

    Exactly, 6km is done and dusted - and yes, I have both a month planner and a spreadsheet to make sure I tick all the distances off. Running it in order would have been "fun" but not feasible with work and events already booked in.

    1km-15km single runs
    16km-31km daily mileage

    Any order you like! It's already the 1st here and I can't sleep so I just did 6km.

    I want to read the law but haven't had a chance yet, presumably it's published in English in HK? Or if it's coming from Beijing then only in Chinese? If so I can translate it for you when I get a chance.

    Totally forgot you have a holiday on the 1st (surprised we don't get one for liberating you!!). Enjoy your rum and coke and don't sing the anthem in a disrespectful way :(

    Yessss!
    We've set the slightly arbitrary rule that runs 15km and under have to be done in one go, 16km+ days can be daily mileage. I've got a wall chart and stickers (because I am a child).
    If you complete it you get a free physio session; catch is that it's in Shanghai...

    English-language state media here was crowing about Joshua Wong giving up and saying how the laws are needed to fight terrorism. CCP is just obsessed with fighting imaginary terrorism (see also: mass sterilisation of uyghers).
