Phew! Just got back from my daily run. I'm trying to get a little bit fit for the Field Game. But I still hope I can stay on the sidelines. I will be a disgrace to the family name if I am called onto the pitch, Archie. I started last Tuesday with a modest run of about 860m. I had to stop on Pohlstrasse at about 600m and have a rest. The next day I didn't have to stop and today I extended my range to just over 1,000m. I wonder if I can get as far as the river in 11 days?
Monday 9/2/09: I did get to the river today! 1,200m and no heart attack yet.
PS Has anybody seen Valkyrie yet? I did and it's pretty good. Just beyond the river is Stauffenbergstrasse, which is named after the hero. He was shot in a building on that road. You can walk in the courtyard where it happened. Spooky.
Much looking forward to seeing all these fit keeling brothers competing in the wall game and thankyou for including me in the lunch afterwards.

George - well done and I am sure you can make it to the river, but for goodness sake don't have a heart attack in training. The father of a friend of ours was involved in the Valkyrie plot (and was duly knocked off afterwards) - so we are looking forward to seeing it.
