My wife messaged me from Cairo, she's a University lecturer and has been paid to lecture at Cairo University. Sounds great but she flew in at 1 am, had to lecture to 100 people at 8am this morning, she's a trooper! :)

I hope all the disturbances have quietened down and she can enjoy the city, it really is a place of beauty (when there are no riots).

Today I did my third ride this week. 15km may not sound much to most but its a build up after a health scare. Also set several local personal bests on sprint times.

I actually really enjoy cycling and am under no illusions of being a world champion but any distance is an achievement to me.

^ My brother's in the same position, trying to slowly build himself back up to his usual running regime. He's always trying to talk me into it, but I just wouldn't have the willpower to stick with it.

Update on my dads heart attack today which happened last week, which turned out to be a massive one. Much bigger than realised on the day of it happening:

He is still in hospital and probably looking at a triple bypass. He is not coming out until they have fixed him up and recovered for a time after the operation. Which could still be up to two weeks away till it takes place.

He is so tired just trying to do anything the poor guy, especially with how hot it is in hospitals.

Hope everything goes OK for your dad silvergunner.


Today I caught the very tail end of a possible bomb scare when heading to catch my bus home.

This might actually be a good thing. A friend of mine just assumed his ropey health was down to his diabetes. To an extent that's true, but he had a heart attack that resulted in a quad bypass. The difference in him was vast. He looks and feels much healthier after it.

Yeah got to be thankful as that heart attack could of killed him outright. Hopefully everything will go smooth in the long run with his treatment.

Last night was the first time we had our granddaughter stay over. Mum's off to do the Tough Mudder thing in Edinburgh today.

Well , Silvergunner , I wish him well - its a shame it takes these kind of events to make us think about our own health too but at least he is in the right place and you can move forward with understanding what he will be going through. Better to have the bypass and recover slowly.

Now that makes my sh#t trivial but I know how hard these things hit him , you and everyone around him too.
