Ive been looking forward to Friday all week. It meant two things, Easy run day and a lie in tomorrow, No alarm clock. I got home from work about 5:00ish, quite late for a Friday but its been one of those weeks so I kind of new I was going to be late. I bounced home ready for my run, I was keen to get out and get home and enjoy my evening. Well I got out, did my run and then I decided to do some plumbing. The toilet in the upstairs bathroom has been filling up very slowly after being flushed and me being a man who knows everything about DIY I wanted to have a look. Still in my running gear I decided to take the flush and water dispenser apart. I thought I had fixed it, but I was very wrong, I now had water running into the back basin and filling the toilet up... but it wasn't stopping so it was going into the overflow. This meant I had to keep on flushing the look ever 10 seconds - GREAT!
I had been fiddling with the toilet now for 45 minutes, still in my running gear, I was meant to be showered and dinner on the table as my wife had just walked through the door. My wife came up stairs and I had one of those looks, very similar to the one when I flooded the kitchen a week ago. I phone my dad who has the answers to DIY he told me I had to turn the water off and get a new part for the filler as its broke. I had run downstairs turn the water off and dismantle and drain the toilet. I then had to go down B&Q for the new part! Still in my running gear! Well, the rest of the story I got the new part and saved the day... My wife didn't think much of my plumbing skills though :)
But back to my run, I enjoyed taking it easy today, my legs felt good, I had a spring in my step and found the rhythm pretty quick. I even managed to find my ipod shuffle that my wife hid from me :) Honest!
I think I'm off out on the road bike tomorrow that we've borrowed so i'll keep you posted how it goes.
