12TH JULY 2005
Alex, do you think you may be suffering overtraining syndrome?
How's the knee NR?
Another fine dry day indeed Alex - maybe we used up all the water in the clouds?
Hydrotherapy really does seem to be helping get the flexibility back into my back - I can even tie shoelaces again
Shoes with laces eh? There's posh you are!
Alex - you work hard, train hard, are an excellent parent and a fine human being. Why are you surprised you are under the weather? The only thing that doesn't compute here is that you don't know what's going on. Luckily enough, there is a cure - pie. Or a nice hot tub maybe?
Nice out again today.
Glad back is improving Boffin.
Knee is on the mend thanks Sue. Llanelli is definitely off for me. Half and full marathon.
Tracey - pie and cake, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
oh dear NR, Llanelli is not a good luck race for you is it? Will you rest up and heal and go for bust at Snowdon now?
Not a good race? She did 2:52 at Llanelli, knocked hours off her PB and left the entire field, all bar half a dozen surprised looking elite men, so far back they couldn't even see her dust, never mind eat it!
Wish I could have that kind of bad race day sometimes...
I am cycling to work in the dry again today, it hasn't rained all week. Wonder when the drought warnings will start.

I was thinking the same thing tracey....Nutty was flying that day wasn't she........I'm off for a day trip to the beacons with my mother.....
Tracey, that cake is outstandingly fantastic - love it!!
I was just thinking that this is not the first time that she has been forced to DNS at Llanelli is all
Hope all the cycling went well today
Sue - I know what you mean. Hopefully I will be able to do it again some time. Will aim for Snowdon now . Sometimes life and falling get in the way!!
Llanelli was a great day out Tracey. didn't you get a pb too Seren?
Evening ... Poor Nutty. She had a great result when she did make the start line. Shame you have had a few injuries a few inopportune times.
Sue, I am not over-training now. Training less than ever, albeit still getting out almost every day. Did 40 mins on the turbo tonight.
Tracey, thank you for the nice comments. Life is exhusting between work and kids and everything.
Another dry day becons - even the suggestion of some sunshine which will be nice for more rotavating of the veg patch.
The work and kids are tiring enough Alex, it's that 'everything' that really hits you... the stuff you don't plan for, or think will take that long etc, little things that you just think "I'll just get this done, then I will be able to do that" - takes forever and then you are shattered and up against time.
Hey ho and away we go...
How are you and Mrs Jones, Jones? Training going well?
Evening ... 'everything', yes, that is a massive problem !
Even had a speeding ticket today. 38 in a 30. I rarely speed nowadays and was caught by a cop on a bike. It was just one of those things where should have changed down a gear but didn't and let the truck accelerate a little before changing, I saw him too but obviously not soon enough.
Not got any points so far so prob a speed awareness course I would think.
I have this feeling that 2013 is going to be sh*it but that 2014 will be ok
Alex, I got caught doing 35 in a 30 zone, early on a Sunday morning on an empty road with no residences near . The speed awareness course is only 4 hours of tedium! To be fair I did learn some stuff I didn't knowhad forgottten and I am rather more careful now (and my satnav has a nice warning system if I creep over the limit or if there are sneaky cameras around!).
I see you are not doing Llanelli after all today - shame, but the rest will probably do you more good than harm.
NR why no sleep again?
Good luck Sue. Nice day for it.
You know what it's like when you can't run. You have this excess energy. Got an interview on Thursday for the job I am doing as my contract ends at the end of March. Lots to think about but then hasn't everyone?
