A few things to document here today:
1. Last night I did my first run since the Two Oceans Half on Saturday. I’ve never had someone repeatedly beating my calf muscles with a scaffolding pole, but I would imagine that what I felt going up the hill between 3-4 kilometres last night would be pretty similar. Today should have brought with it a whole world of pain, but, concerningly, I’m actually feeling fine.
2. Had another decent night out last night at Societi Brasserie in Tokai (it’s not in Constantia – despite what they tell you). Company was great, food was really good, but the service was pretty disappointing. Still, their Filet au Poivre is rather spectacular and should form the basis of your main course when you’re there next.
4. New music from Mike Skinner on The Beats and it’s gorgeous stuff:
After a few years break from running a record label, during which our previous signings sunk without a trace, me and Mayhem have finally got round to getting another record together. It’s by a guy from Chepstow called Elro who we first heard rapping on the interwebs. It also features a new project of mine and my friend Rob Harvey called The D.O.T. We’re really excited about this as its the first single on The Beats for a while and the first proper release for The D.O.T. I hope you like it. It’s out now.

I’ll be blogging about PamieJane’s 40th birthday idea later today. In the meantime, it being 40th season, many happy returns to the Ex-Haematologist who was the one responsible for introducing Mrs 6k and I all those years ago, one chilly Friday night in a soulless pub in Oxford and also to Jacob Zuma, who is 70 today. I need to find out what moisturiser he uses…
