Spent the last 2 weeks in Oman & Dubai. We lived in Oman from 1999 to 2005 so it was good to revisit after 8 years & see the old places again. Some new building but nothing compared to the scale of Dubai. We took our old Muscat Road Runners v... Read more
Despite the travel warnings due to snow I managed to get to London & back from Holland in a day yesterday. Despite getting stranded at Leiden by the lack of a train & having to take a taxi, my flight was only delayed by 30 mins. On the way bac... Read more
Now down below 77 kg! This has been partly helped by a mild brush with something like the Noro virus this week - although I was not sick I did not feel hungry for a few days so calorie intake was way down. It was either the virus or the oyster... Read more
After the binging of Christmas and New Year I finally had 5 days to myself (wife back in UK for the week) and really concentrated on fitness and reducing my calorie intake. Result, 77.2 kg, the first time below 78 since 2011 by the looks of thi... Read more

My second time in Houston in less than a month. Its a very boring 10.5 h flight over & was interrupted by some shmuck trying to take a ciggy break in the toilets. That's such a no-no these days that I am surprised they didn't divert the place ... Read more
The weather in Holland has conspired to keep us here another day & night. Bad snow in Holland today means that we have re-booked to fly back Saturday morning. Hopefully I can make it home before I have to leave again for Houston on Sunday!... Read more
Just here for a short week. The first snows of winter hit just as we got to Amsterdam airport so we were delayed 2 hours on the runway while we queued to be de-iced. Got in late & went straight to work the next day. I did not even bother brin... Read more
I am just here for 4 days to give a class so it's quite challenging with lots of 'up' time and my throat is usually suffering by the end of the day. I have been 'good' so far & stayed off the booze & run both nights I have been here so far, jet... Read more
I was only home 3 days in the whole of October and weighed myself this morning to assess the damage - just shy of 80 kg which means I have put on 4 lbs in a month. Despite getting back to some serious running in Poland for a few days I let the ... Read more
From the warmth of Lisbon to the cold of Warsaw. My first time in this city & apparently it's unseasonably cold - even for Poland. It had been snowing the day before so everywhere is covered in white - even the flowers!

I am in Lisbon for the week attending a conference here but with some spare days to sight see. Travelling with the missus has been tough on my diet & health as I am not getting all the 'down time' I am used to when travelling alone which is usu... Read more
Spending a week in the Algarve at a Forum at a very nice hotel next to a golf course - unfortunately I don't play golf - but they do have a very nice gym facility so I hope to use that as often as I can. What's different about this business tri... Read more
