Wonder if it'll be more than ten degrees and not pissing down with rain in Kenya like here.
I mean come one - last night I was in my flattering winter pyjamas, dragging a blanket around the house and sucking on Horlicks. After running 7 k's at gym.

Isn't it on the three day mark, your arss starts to shrink?

Anyway, whatever. I'm off to Nairobi this morning. I'm taking my suitcase as hand luggage, and have no idea what I plan to do when I get there this evening.

But that's part of the adWENture isn't it? Those that I love romantically and otherwise have been informed I do so.

Before I get put up at a hotel near the office, I've booked to stay in something called a 'Bush House' in a suburb called Karen, on the outskirts of the city. The suburb is named after Karen Blixen from Out Of Africa. Her original farmhouse, now a museum, is a block away from where I am staying.

Off I go.

DelBoy - well that's disappointing!
But seriously. Three weeks, will I start to see a difference? How long does this take exactly??

you ran 7KM???? OMF I cannot run to save my life in fact if I was being chased by a mad man weilding an axe I still could not run and would be chopped into tiny little pieces - well done - and yes it is about 3 - 6 weeks before you see any kind of difference - that is if you don't get sick first as I find that when one starts gym after a prolonged absense one tends to get sick

Shit seriously Nessers? I almost feel proud :) I nearly died whilst running, but that's besides the point right?
I hope I don't get sick - I've - touch wood - managed to avoid getting sick for some time now. And 5 days gym break in Nairobi means I won't be able to work out there! Perhaps I'll go for a run around the block....or will I get mugged I wonder.
