Playing catch up. Yesterday was my last night. Went for a 26 mile cycle straight after I had finished... possibly not a great idea but my friend talked me into it.... wow... couldnt move my legs very quick and was knackered.. now spending today doing nothing and just sleeping a lot!!


other than that... nothing.. long run tomorrow.

On night mode.. So did 10 mile yesterday before work. Was a GREAT run and would have easily completed a 1:50 half. Nothing to eat ... Just ran.

Night shift was as always tough. Off to sleep now!

OH- sleep is now a no go on nights. 28 admission kept me busy.. More than half being over doses......

Hey all,

13km for me today 1hr 13 mins. Just poodled along.

Can't remeber if I told you all or not that I have first degree heart block on my ECG. I also had an echocardiogram yesterday and have some mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. Apparently both are common in althetes but CAN pre dispose me to scary heart things. happy days.

Still no progress on my hip.

Hoping for a long swim and some tennis tomorrow. Then a week of night shifts.

Absent but not lazy!

MAU rota again has been relentless.. that and attending a funeral of my best friends father who passed very suddenly.

I have been running to work on my long days, there and back is probably 5km all up. but add that to an 13 hour shift and it is enough! I am on 12-8 at the moment, so just got back from a 45 min swim, some upper body weights and going to run to work now.

Getting there slowly I suppose. Although I have noticed how unfit (compared to before) I am. Even swimming was a bit of an effort today!

Plod along

Speak later and catch up with everything!

What: 3km swim + physio

Why: getting back into it

The physio did some clicking of my lower back and hips. Who knows whats going on!

Thanks for the words of encouragement by everyone, its so easy to get into a rut when you just work and sleep. I have long shifs over the weekend and hoping to keep my cool and do little things to keep me sane.

Gobi- Nice to know it is god awful, my strongest sport is probably cycling. just worried my legs will be buggered by the time the run comes along!! slow and steady, trying not to get too competitve is the way forward for this one i think.

LMH- chin up! you will get there chook. patience.
