Don't worry FRC you're not obliged to feel inspired all the time. Your inspiration engine needs rest like everything else!
A friend from Comrades 2011 has just done IM - I think it's easy to think ' oh yeah could so do it' but when it comes to it, it's a LOT of work.
Just come back from hols - a week in Antwerp, another in Barcelona - was sooo odd being in a flat European city in autumn and not picking up a number at an expo! I kept on having to remind myself! Have had issues with bedbugs and mice (to cut long story short) which frankly could do without, horribly stressful, makes it hard to sleep. We couldn't have a cat sadly (the dogs are not cat-safe). Right now I would so love a terrier or whippet, though...
Thanks for the reminder HRR, must volunteer for parkrun this weekend.
Off to see the Fizz this evening. I've been doing the rehab, I guess it averages out to once every other day - the full lot takes over an hour. Got terribly frustrated with the one legged squat because I would basically just stand on one leg and start falling over, which meant I wasn't using (and thus developing) *any* muscles whatsoever, such as the ones needed to, er, stop me falling over. But found something on the interwebs that said, start by doing it in a door frame (in short) and that has helped a bit.
It's up and down - some days I can walk more than I could (before the knee starts kicking off and clicking) but others, I just get up and I'm like, "WTF, it's 8am and you're playing up already?!" so....
Not the end of the world of course and aside from the VERMIN I'm quite content really!
