Training in Quarantine – Day 267
Cooler today, went walking with my running jacket again — perhaps I shouldn’t have, it was quite cold. Easily fixed with a bit of a jog during the lap.
Training in Quarantine – Day 266
Did my walk as a “fast” walk because the temperature was bit nippy and ended up running the second half of the lap, which felt surprisingly good
Training in Quarantine – Day 265
The day has been warmer today. Much warmer in fact, I had the window open most of the day. Decided to walk with my running jacket on. Felt a bit cold with that, but not too cold.
Training in Quarantine – Day 264
Another warm-ish day, although it did start raining during my walk, it was only a drizzly rain.
Training in Quarantine – Day 263
Did my walk and the temperature is so much warmer today — showing 13degC according to the Met Office.
Training in Quarantine – Day 262
Went for my walk a little earlier and good thing too, it started dribbling with rain on my way back.
Training in Quarantine – Day 261
Warmer again today, didn’t really need hat or gloves.
It’s been nearly a year since my accident that wrote off my old car and I was surprised to get a call this morning from the car hire company.
They had been contacted by the third-party driver’s insurance company (Aviva), offering them part of the cost of the hire car I was using for over two months during the time I had no car. Bear in mind that during that time, the UK was in lockdown, shops were closed and car showrooms were closed so I couldn’t even get a new car to replace the smashed up one, meaning the car hire was longer than either side expected. The estimated total cost for the car was ~£3300 as mentioned in https://blenderfox.com/2020/09/02/car-accident-update/. Aviva offered to pay only around 30% of the cost. Obviously, the car hire company said “FU” in more formal terms and wanted to ask if I would co-operate with their solicitors if it came to it.
I obviously said yes since the case is an open-and-shut with the other side being drunk and even arrested by the police for Drunk Driving after the accident (although I didn’t see him wobbling while walking, it was still enough to be driving while impaired through alcohol.)
Will update accordingly.
Training in Quarantine – Day 260
Warmer, but much wetter. Rained for most of today. Managed to get around 15 minutes walk at least.
