The wind is blowing like crazy but still no rain.I guess we are lucky when you see what happened in New Orleans.I was really tired when I got home from work,but after a few minutes at the computer I have started to wake up.The US Open Tennis Champs is going on about 3 miles from where I live,but for the re-routed planes that fly over my house you would not know it.A small price to pay.

Can you believe it, on the way home from work today I saw Martina Navratilova ( the legend ) . they keep saying it is going to rain,but apart from a little sprinkle before I left for work this morning,nothing.As a result it is really humid,but as I write this it seems that there is a front coming in.Maybe we will get a nice downpour when I go for my run,and it will make it nice and fresh.When I checked earlier,my beloved Wolves were beating QPR 2-1.

Well the weekend is over and I am still a little fluey( if that is a word ).I don't work today so I have more time to get better.It was supposed to rain a lot the past 2 days,but it just seems to be sunny and humid.On days when I don't work I get to run early in the morning when it is much cooler.Being an Englishman I have been very excited about the way the Ashes series with Australia has been going,and it seems that the whole of the UK is also excited in ways that it has not been in many years ( for those Americans who don't know, I'm talking about cricket,which is one of the parents of Baseball ).Go on England !

Managed to go out for a run of about 3 miles this morning.It was quite humid at the start which was made even more so ,by the fact that it sprinkled a little rain just to add more moisture to the air.There is now a gentle rain falling,which may get heavier during the day,and the temp's will be cool.It is a perfect day to recover from all the stresses of previouse days.You almost get a sense of the season changeing,but who knows what a new day will bring.

Truly a new day, felling a lot better this morning,not perfect.Ran about 3 miles with my friend Utpal.Once again the weather is fall like.It is August 27th,and I just want to say;

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CKG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This flu that I have is very persistant,just when I thought it was going away,I woke up this morning with a very thick head,I have the weekend to help me get rid of it.I tend to dive into my room, rest alot and drink lots of fluids,hopefully emerging like a butterfly from a cocoon. we will have to see.Of course I will keep you in formed.

This morning on the way to work it flet like a fall day,some friends of mine have gone to run a marathon in upstate New York and the weather should be excellant.I hope to hear that they all did well.I talked with 2 friends of mine from Sarajevo,just the other day and they started a business recently which seems to be doing quite well.I seem to be slowly recovering from my flu though it has left mre a little drained,The weekend is coming soon.

Since the weather has gone a little colder the last few days,the urge to take a nap in the afternoon has become stronger.This morning it was about 68f when I left the house and only 76f when I came home.Going out for a run can freshen you up to a degree,but there can still be a desire to take a nap.It is up to each individual to decide what is the right thing to do,and I will leave you pondering this point.

Tuesday, August 23, 2005

Not a lot to say the morning was nice and cool,still feeling the effects of my flu but a lot better.My beloved Wolves beat Chester 5-1 in the Carling cup,but some of my friends will be sad that Patrizan Belgrade lost on penalties 4-2 to Bratislava in the champions league final qualifying round.They will now have to be content with Uefa cup.This is probably pretty boring to some of you.

Monday, August 22, 2005

Well the circus was a lot of fun though it was tempered a little by the fact that my flu symptoms got a little heavier as I got more tired during the day .It was a truly International event with acts from all over the world,and the sideshow had lots of food and drinks.The weather stayed quite heavy which didn't help my flu.Oh by the way Chelsea beat Asrenal 1-0.

Sunday, August 21, 2005

I woke up this morning with a pretty bad head cold and painful sinus.I managed to run about 3 1/2 miles the air was very heavy and humid.There is an old wives or grandmothers remedy that id you drink sweet black coffee it will help a sinus problem,so I did and it helped a lot.I still need to deal with the fact that I have a cold ,but it is at least better for now.I am not a doctor and I do not play one on TV,so judge for your self.

Ok so I'm still a little under the weather,and for some reason my right ankle is a little sore it may all be related.I did go out for a short run but was not ready to race in my usual saturday 2 mile race.The temperature is in the 70's but the humidity is in the mid 80's so you have to work a little when you run.Although I feel somewhat tired afterwards,I do generally feel a lot better.So if you don't feel 100% sometimes going out for a nice walk or a jog can shake things up.

Friday, August 19, 2005

I am for now, back to working a few hours on friday mornings,and it was a pleasant walk to work this morning.Temps are low and it is overcast,though a little humid. That is pretty good for the second half of August in New York.I will run this afternoon,and have a relaxing weekend planned,I am going to the circus on sunday.

Still a little under the weather,but improving.A loverly day to spend some time outside.I got a new micro drive for my mp3 player but it doesn't work so I am being sent a new one.I have a movu2 nomad.and when I get the drive working it will have 4 gigs of storage,which is more than enough for me at the moment.I am sure others would disagree.

I have been suffering from a chest infection for a couple of days now,and almost didn't go out for a run today.But the weather is too nice,temps in the high 80's and humidity a low 31%.So I went out and found that I had a pretty good run,maybe it will help clear something out.

Tuesday, August 16, 2005

It was really a nice day,the temp's are cool and there was a light sprinkle of rain at different times of the day.It was much easier to sleep last night,though I still had times during the day when I felt sleepy,I guess my body wanted to catch up.Enjoy the weather .

Monday, August 15, 2005

Well the rains did come last night,and it is considerabley cooler today but still quite run this morning was pleasant and I managed to meet a couple of friends out there.I am by no means a computer wiz but I have finally managed to add 2 links from my site to 2 sites that you might find interesting so go on check them out.Have a nice day!

My friend Utpal still has his calf injury so I got to got out on my own this morning.Itwas 81f and 80% humidity when I went out at 6:50 am and I just managed to get a 5 mile run in.In those kind of conditions it feels at times as though you are breathing water.They do say that the weather will break later in the day with the arrival of some thunder storms,and that will be nice for the flowers and trees.

Saturday, August 13, 2005

Woke up this morning and it was already 80f ( 27c ) and the humidity was 81%,i do not have air conditioning ( just a fan ) but I sleep pretty well.I did not think I could run the usual 2 mile race,so I waited and went out for a run at 9:45 after I had watch my first EPL game of the season.I happen to support Wolverhampton Wanderers who play in the Championship ( the 4th most watched league in Europe,ahead of the French and Italian leagues).I will tell you more as the season goes on.

Friday, August 12, 2005

Today is a real scorcher,the humidity is quite low but the sun is very strong.I managed to get my run in early,running into 2 friends from Serbia that are visiting New York for a couple of weeks.

Wow! I left home for work at 6:20 this morning and everything was normal.but when I came back at 3:30 the tree in front of the house next door had fallen over,into the front yard of my is a city tree so it is up to them to remove doesn't appear to have damaged anything but it is blocking the sidewalk.It truly is a new day.
