Diary:Thurs 8th May an early rise, breakfast and headed to Mossmorran for my last full day of employment. Seems strange and changes have happened in the month that I have been off. New carpet laid, some new starts and my replacement has been sick since I left to go on my extended vacation! No training today.
Friday 9th my final day at work. I bought some sticky buns and put out a mail to let everyone know I was in, but not for long, and to nip in and see me. Called to a meeting to find a huge chocolate cake waiting! A well attended presentation at 11:45 and a quick cobbled together speech was my final duty as an employee of Big Oil.
Trg:Damn you Strava. Was planning to do an easy 6 mile run but checked Strava and noticed that I had been pushed off CR spot on a nearby short running segment! So I set off to get it back and did!. 3.9 miles in 34:12 av pace of 8:43 ahr 133 46 secs up on the CR.
Diary Sat 10th Busy day today. Haircut and shave at Turkish barbers ready for my retirement dinner. Got a call from one of the guests to say that he cant make it. Went to Carols to get changed and help her into her outfit. She looked amazing unfortunately I don’t have any pics. The dinner was at The Grange Inn near St Andrews and was very good. I got another gift from some of the guests a cask strength bottle of single malt Arran whisky!
Trg:Bike run brick with members of the GTC. Led a bike around the new duathlon course then took them through some hill reps.
Diary Sun 11th. Lazy day with Carol. Long lie and a wee walk along the coastal path. Caught up with blog while having a beer.
