Yesterday there was rain in the morning but a great afternoon should have accommodated a run. It just didn't happen, however, for a variety of reasons. There had thus to be no slippage today. If the morning permitted, that was when a slightly longer run was to be implemented. I woke up ready and willing and a 5 mile road run seemed a good option. The body coped well and the brain was satisfied although a mid afternoon sleep was required.

On the Parkway and just out of the side of my eye I spied an electricity pylon and that just wound me up. For years I have had concerns about electromagnetic radiation from electricity supply systems and radiation from mobile phone masts. Here was an opportunity for a rant about them. It seemed natural then to move to consider greener alternatives and the choices politicians make generally as a result of no more than expedient opportunism to placate an uninformed public. Seems like this could be an ongoing topic in this video blog.
