Last few weeks in Coventry

Coventry lately feels hot and stuffy.  I want cool breezes and beaches.  I miss walking by the sea at nights.  Coventry has no good places to stroll.

I finished my training for the half marathon tonight with a 6.5 mile run.  I'm far from an athlete but I am getting faster.  A year ago I did no exercise and I'm proud of how far I've come.  When people talked about how great running felt I used to think they were idiots.  Now I find myself saying the same things.

I've also been doing a lot of writing recently.  Last night I was working on a piece I wasn't happy with.  I decided the idea was weak but I had nothing better.  I despaired a little that I couldn't drag out ideas on command.  Lying in bed a new idea came from nowhere.  I woke half an hour before my alarm clock this morning and wrote a first draft.  I don't know where the ideas come from, but they always seem to come in time.  This week I've written two new stories, one about a banana, and one about apples.
