Miffo and Lupita getting some C Vitamine

In a few hours we will flying from Barcelona to the Netherlands, from there to China where we will stay for a few days – you can’t imagine how difficult is travelling to China during this weeks- and then our final destination.

A wise or unwise way to travel, if you consider time or if you consider money, but still a way to travel long distances.

FB and me have the aim to conquer Mt. Cook, but may be the weather won’t be the right one or may be I will decide to change our plans. Anyways another territory explored by your orange cap preferred bunny.

PS: I am carrying my computer with me for the very first time, in this worldwide crisis scenario I would like to know –at least- if they are counting with me when returning home or if they will just fire me.

The Orange Cap Sect accepts a new member

Miffa is a member of The Supreme Council for The Bunny Attitude but as you might imagine the council is formed by many different bunnies that represents different parts of the world, different races, and of course who have different visions of the future bunny world.

As I have told to my daughter a lot of times one of the most widespread rabbit is the European Rabbit who has his origin in the Iberian Peninsula.

Anyways, she decided to become a Buddhist Bunny and to create her own sect inside it. As time passed by Draculina, Ookina and new members of the orange cap joined her and they have developed their own rules and culture.

Yesterday Draculina’s twin sister arrived from Hong Kong after a real nightmare finding her way from Madrid to Barcelona. She has been sleeping all the day long until 18:00 when Miffa, Ookina, Draculina and Miffu (the only no orange cap member accepted) were waiting to have tea.

The ceremony ended about 21:00 when Draculina’s twin sister has received her new nameDraculina J- and, after reading the letter 9j wrote, she was nominated as a new sect member.

Of course 9j is a member of the sect and the council. As Miffu, she is from Hong Kong and this is just enough to become a member if you pass the severe test and trials. You don’t need to wear that orange cap that – of course- denotes certain grade.

The graduation is a matter that it will be better explained by my daughter herself. In the pictures, please note the details that show the special character of this sect (ie: Miffa is wearing her band the other way out, with the golden colour outside)

Damn, Father Bunny blasted me!

Look his metro ticket and his non electronic pace calculator
– a nice move because the heart rate monitor wasn’t working today-
may be the secret to achive a good race. Our race # 819.
I have the feeling that he has been training secretly and using illegal tricks to beat our 45:00 barrier. After a hard last race – after a hard night party I organized to neutralize his training- that ended with him and my sister Draculina stopping the chrono at 0:45:05 but suffering as they were in the lungs of hell in the second half, I raised the bar and I asked for an under 44:00 minutes.

He trained with 35 Celsius past Friday and Sunday for 16 and 21 kilometres (he wants to do a half marathon in September).

As ever before the over train factor was important and we thought that he will broke due to an extreme treadmill exercise made in 0:43:48 with the second half running over 14 kph. Lot of ice, lot of complaints but lot of muscle gained in his quadriceps in two weeks. Damaged but not so much.

Last game of the season, The Eurogames – surely too early, too hot, but his last chance to win- a non profit event organized by the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation opened to everyone that promotes integration and non discrimination between gender and sexual orientation. An event with athletes from all over Europe that will raise the level of the previous races.

The race, only one leg, that’s nice! close to the beach nicer!

My father has to carry Draculina with him all the time inside his cargo pants pocket or in his hands. With almost 32 celsius a cotton cargo pant over your legs with you underground ticket, sunglasses, some coins, home keys and dextrose pills is an extra weight and an extra power heater that you should better avoid, but my little bunnies, rules are rules!!

7:20 alarm clock, 8.10 underground, 8.40 a lot of people who is going to run an people who is accredited as organization are in the same underground train.

The old man is getting nervous – a French couple asked him, an English guy asked him…where are we going to get our race number? – the beginning of the end ?

May be, normally you can get your number for the race the day after but in Eurogames 10k race you must present yourself one hour before.

From the underground exit he was forced to run about 1.5 km to arrive 10 minutes before.

Draculina on the beach, after winning their bet with me, I invited them to Paella

Hahaha , he has used some energies – I was laughing in my bed.

Start!

First kilometre: amazingly the GPS said FB he was doing 4:10 a km, but the 1st kilometre mark was at 1,35 kilometres. This was very annoying because he forced his pace a lot during the first 6 kilometres where – suddenly – the gps and km mark began to match. (Well, I run out of money to pay the signal crew)

After 5,80 km nirvana arrived to Draculina and FB, they began to pass people on a very steady pace- but some tiny hills were on the last 2 kilometre- unfortunately he trained his last 21 on a hill and he was able to pass more runners and to lost almost 10 seconds arguing with Draculina before using his last forces to sprint at 14.5 kph the last 300 metres.

Unfortunately me and Mother Bunny got lost but you can check his result here. He won with a 0:43:41 chrono. But still a 21,065 kms and a 42.195 kms are part of out bets.

Dan has arrived

Filed under: Caffe Miffy, Japan, Japanese food, The Council


After an exhilarating journey Dan has arrived from Japan. A noble Japanese family – The Cafemiffy clan– gave us the opportunity and the honours to train his body and soul for some time.

The induction was very formal. Miffa used her Samurai outfit and her sword while Miffo acted as the secretary of the council. Draculina and Draco were present too.

Dan swore loyalty to the Chan clan and Miffa – who overacted a little bit- nominated him as new knight of the clan.

Miffo and FB were too excited to cook sushi, so we ordered a nice Japanese meal from one of the best Japanese restaurants (The bill is still in FB’s mind). We had Sapporo beer and Sake and a nice headache today…

But What Doesn’t Kill You Only Makes You Stronger.

Sabotage
July 22, 2008, 3:42 pm
Filed under: Chan family, music, running
Picture: Wikipedia
In the Gym where I train during lunch time to demonstrate my bunny daughter that her father can run a Marathon, day after day the same music is on air.

May be they have a limited amount of their budget for ambient music, or may be someone put a CD on and forgot about it.

Anyways when you are going to stay on a treadmill for almost one hour music can be a plus if the songs tempo if the right one. Day after day I was listening the same song several times during my exercise. Actually I like it, and everyday I tried to remember the melody. The voice was a known one and I had the feeling that It could be Gwen Stefani.

After some research I founded the original one (the one in the gym is a cover): Early winter.

Now I am thinking that may be Miffa is responsible for placing such a sad song in the Gym’s music list.


You, you know how to get me so low
My heart had
a crash when we spoke
I can’t fix what you broke
And you, you always
have a reason
Again and again this feelin
Why do I give in

And I
always was, always was one for cryin
I always was one for tears

[Chorus]
The sun’s getting cold, it’s snowin
Looks like an early
winter for us
Looks like an early winter for us
An early winter, oh I
need you to turn me over

It’s sad the map of the world is on you
The
moon gravitates around you
The seasons escape you

And I always was,
always was one for cryin
I always was one for tears
No I never was,
never was one for lyin
You lied to me all these years

[Chorus]

Why, why do you act so stupid
Why, you know I’m always right

Looks like an early winter for us
It hurts and I can’t remember
sunlight
An early winter for us
The leaves are changing colors
Starting over and over and over again
Starting over and over and over
again
Well it looks like an early winter for us
It looks like an early
winter for us
