When the levee breaks

Not yet a fortnight on from the end of the season rugby tour and athletics is back with a vengeance. The Bomber and pals had their first Herne Hill Harriers training session of the year last night at the Tooting Bec track.

My God, it was cold, wet and miserable. An issue compounded by my misreading of the times and expecting it to finish at eight rather than eighty thirty, the boys having gone up an age group attend different sessions to last year.

I stood sulking on the sidelines blasting a soundtrack through my headphones:
If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay.
That said, the kids - though sodden - seemed happy enough.

Himself is in the Merton Secondary Schools Track and Field Championships 2013 today. The times to be nervous are 11:40 for the 100m, 12:40 for the 200m and 2:30 for the 4x100m relay.

Nothing to do but loaf after that until training again ............ tomorrow.
