Morning Travellers

What a crazy night we had in Hong Kong! We did Wogan proud with our numerous renditions of the Floral Dance. Far too many vodka jellies were consumed! :D :D

Thank goodness we are staying in the Mira hotel. You'll find me in the jacuzzi after I've had the sumptuous breakfast buffet. We are near Nathan Road, full of electronics shops. I think I might treat myself to Apple Watch and get Moreless a Fitbit!

The steamer won't be leaving until 8pm this evening. Enjoy everything Hong Kong has to offer.

Happy Travels 😊😊😊

Hi Queenie. I'd advise researching online first and then try to pick something up from Argos. If you go to PC World they'll blind you with science and try to convince you you need allsorts that you don't.

Make sure you steer clear of the mini laptops as they are very slow. About £300 should get you a reasonable one.

Thanks Sueper, I'm in Australia so we don't have Argos but yes I do need to research online and determine my requirements. I want it for travelling because I don't have a modern mobile and when we're away from home I can't access all the info I need. I've seen some here for about $400 which I reckon is a good price...Maybe I'd better just start somewhere, I don't mind appearing thick where technolology is concerned (can't help it, I am!) and the staff are usually very helpful with us old dears :)

Just making clear you're doing some research and not buying at first and hopefully they won't try to pressure you into buying stuff you don't need. It seems in the UK they are determined to push all sorts of things on you that you don't need.

Enjoy your retail therapy :)

Great progress everyone, keep up belting out those Kms!

Today is a rest day (or "active recovery" in gym speak), so I just did short stints on the treadmill, cross-trainer and bike, not going to attempt a walk outside as Hurricane Harold is a bit too blowy for me.

My Kms for today are 8.61

Evening all :-) Hong Kong is lovely and I have stocked up on a range of holiday purchases - hopefully my luggage won't weigh down the rest of the trip !!

My totals for today are 7.4k run and 5.2k walk = 12.6k total.

It strikes me that we might be needing some extra kms for this trip, so Mr Lucca has kindly offered to donate his kms to the trip as well, if you'd like them ? He is nursing a calf strain so has decided to 'keep me company' on some of my runs when he can as I run slow enough for him to recover from his injury - cheeky git...

Anyway, he has done the same as me for today, if you'd like to set him up a line on your spreadsheet :-)

Hi and good evening :-) it's nice to be able to relax at this time of the evening which I am enjoying more and more. I need to make sure I continue this trend :-) I like the sound of soaking in a nice hot jacuzzi, I would like a nice glass of Merlot and lot's of bubbles :-)

Today has been another busy one and I found time to run 9 kms and walk 6.2 kms plus I have done 30 mins of weights and strength training today. It's been hectic to say the least as part of my workout today was done in the kitchen whilst preparing dinner LOL jumping jacks, lunges, press-ups all whilst waiting for the rice to cook and the chilli to simmer, well the way I see it is there's no point standing around when you can be active whilst doing the dinner.

Enjoy your travels everyone I know I am :-)

I have 3 dogged ks to report - ran this morning before work. But it's blowing a gale out there and I'm feeling run down again this eve, catching an early night right now. If I miraculously wake up feeling well again I might brave the winds on my bike, but feeling a bit sorry for myself at the moment! Maybe a warming jacuzzi and warm Hong Kong hospitality would fix me. I can dream...

Evening all. A cold and soaking 10.1 kms for me today. Got absolutely drenched this morning, then the rain went off so I thought I'd walk on as I was soaked anyway. The dog was having none of it! So, although I managed my goal of 10k I had hoped for a bit more.

On the plus side, the other half has stuck to his healthy eating well today....and not one single moan! Happy days 😉

Hi all, I think I forgot to post Sunday's Kms too, going back to work hit me harder than I thought 😄

Sunday = 6.4

Monday = 6.1

My plantar fasciitis has flared up again, probably in shock from going from a hot tub back to the couch to 5k program, lol. So I suspect I won't be doing as many Kms as I would like over the next few days waiting for that to calm down a bit.
