Off topic......

Six days in and I've managed to eat far toooo much and run way too little - just about an hour in total before today. I feel the fitness draining away and my weight increasing by the second!!! Obviously I've managed to find a wifi hotspot for my phone - else how could I blog this? And of course it was a free one. When I say free what I mean is $4.99 all you can eat breakfast buffet - dammit that's another pound or two going on - pancakes with maple syrup, waffles, sausage, bacon, egg, beans, fruit, cereal, ice cream, chocolate brownies!

We've done three parks so far. Disney's Animal Kingdom, MGM Studios and Busch Gardens. They have all been ace and overall we've been well lucky with the queues - managing to get on the top attractions with minimal queuing. Top tip; go to the furthest rides first and then work back to the entrance, also plan the use of the fast-track to maximum effect.

The best ride so far - and four or five have been really top notch - has to be Busch Gardens' SheiKra - it's a verticle drop job, one of only three in the world and the one with the largest drop plus a second smaller drop. I've been on one of the other two as well - being Alton Towers' Oblivion.

Finally, I managed a longer run today - wait for it, wait for it - 40 minutes - now pick yourselfs up off the floor. This one is for the lads at the track - I hope you haven't been slacking. Hate to think you were letting youselves slip just because I am! I await the reports with eager anticipation upon my return.

Off now to have a soak in the pool......

Thought for the day: Always wear sun block.

Dave, glad to hear you're relaxing; you need a break to re-charge the muscles and come back raring to go. Last Wednesday saw only Sean and Harry on the track, but they put in a good session and worked hard and fast!
I knew it would only be a matter of days before you got yourself plugged in - I'll let you know the national 12 stage results later.
