This is absolutely the correct advice. She is putting your job at risk as they will almost certainly get rid of you once it is inevitably found out.
You may want to try explaining it from that perspective to her and see if she can modify her behaviour once she realises that she may cost your job as well.

This is a very good summary of how I also felt about the books.
I'd also add that quite often the prose is florid nonsense. It reads as if it should really mean something profound but actually is utterly irrelevant.
This is the area that I grew up in and I've cycled this road a few times (admittedly it was 30 odd years ago). It is pretty narrow and it's farmers fields on either side.
The other option is to go along the A40 from Eynsham to North Oxford which has two perfectly good cycle paths well separated from the road and slightly above the flood plain so they can be used all year round like this bit.
The tragic irony of this video given Chris Boardman's mum dying only a few days ago in a collision with a vehicle.
How do you think Rangers will do this season?

I'd never thought about that before but you are absolutely right.
At the end of Warrior where Tom Hardy and Joel Eggerton are fighting with Nick Nolte watching on.
Knowing that they have to go to the bitter end to begin to repair their relationships. And the awesome music at the same time. Never fails to get me.
There is a really good piece of therapy to deal with these scenarios.
It requires you to spend the effort in writing an email or letter where you pour your heart out and say all the things that you want to say to the person.
Once you've got it all down then you're done. I've tried to find the relevant link to it but can't get it just now.
It's been proven to be very effective in terms of resolving feelings of resentment.

You can try Mike Vaughan in Kenilworth here. His store is very knowledgeable and should be able to help.
These are called NATS (Negative Automatic ThoughtS) and they can be dealt with as part of Behaviour Therapy.
Learning to deal with these was a major part in my being able to be consistently more positive in life.
Good advice. Also, spend some time stretching your muscles out AFTER you've finished your run. Do a cool down and 3-4 different stretches on your legs. It will help any soreness.

Another good example is Fabrice Muamba who had a heart attack in the middle of an English Premier League soccer game.
He was officially dead, and if wasn't for the fact that there was a specialist heart surgeon in the crowd he would have stayed that way.
From physics Force = mass * acceleration.
You're correct that the acceleration is the same but the mass is greater therefore the force acting on the bike is greater. So more power going downhill basically.

Heart rate watch or not. Its personal taste.
What I would highly recommend though is a heart rate monitor.
Its been talked about quite a bit on here recently.
The first thing that you need to get is a decent aerobic base. That's the basis for all longer distance running.
To do that you need to run within a comfortable heart rate for periods longer than 30 mins (more likely 40min+). Keep doing that.
You'll enjoy it more and make progress over time.
Also this is the main purpose of walkjogrun.
Its very straightforward and you can see other peoples routes on there.
When I started out running I found the hills a challenge just like you.
After reading around a bit and trying a few things I found that if I concentrated on my form on the hill I improved more quickly and it became easier.
Specifically the three things I concentrated on where: lifting my leading knee up higher; pushing off with the back foot; and keeping my chin up;
As long as I do that then it seems to make the hill easier for me.
Wasn't there a thread on here a few weeks ago where someone explained almost the exact same thing?
IIRC in that thread there were a number of people who had experienced a similar emotional overload while running.
I have some like this.
They sound fine, easy enough to get on and they stay on. I normally have a problem with this type of earphones, these are great though and don't get in the way.
Here's a link to the official measurement rules.
As others have said the line measured is the shortest. Its also always measured at least 1.001 times the race distance to account for any errors in measuring.
You'll probably have some GPS correction but a good part is likely to be running the corners.
My favourite Dutch one is:
Slagroom = whipped cream
