Managed to get to bed at a reasonable hour and slept well enough but still woke up at 5.30 and took a while to get back to sleep. Went for a run in late morning, my 10th run this month, and had a time three minutes faster than the last two runs.
Priory Park, where I always finish my runs, was as busy as it has been since the lockdown began. Yes, it’s a bank holiday weekend and the weather was warm, but it seems a lot of people think this is all over, no doubt thanks to the deplorable conduct of Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings. If there is a second wave, as there surely will be, there will be nobody to blame but the populist morons in the US, UK, Brazil and beyond.
We are all sick of this situation, but the sane and sensible among us are willing to keep doing what it takes to save lives. Unfortunately, it seems a growing number of people just don’t give a damn about anyone else but themselves. And who can really blame them with the scoundrels who are in government?
Had planned on going for a walk with Alice in the afternoon but we decided to give it a miss, since everywhere was bound to be heaving with people, and it was just too hot.
Grilled some chicken, which we rarely have on the BBQ, and it was fantastic. Just a pain to cook without burning the crap out of it.
