Chill time...

As H has already said, we had designated this week as a recovery week... a time to kick back, move less, eat more and generally rebuild before a couple more weeks of hammer time in the run up to our first race of the season, the Ball Buster Duathlon.

We set the alarm for an hour later each day, took out all the long bike rides and I reduced my long run from a steady 18 miles to an easy 14. Overall volume dropped from about 20 hours to around 12 and apart from the regular Tuesday tempo run intensity was pretty much gone.

By the time we were driving home from our Sunday pub lunch in the Yorkshire Dales I was about as chilled as I get and ready for a nice relaxing evening kicking back with H and looking forward to an early night...


the I.T. version of Sod's Law struck and in trying to download my GPS data from this morning's cross country run I managed to first crash my laptop then my Garmin (GPS watch) and finally all three of the software packages I have available to download my stats!! Those of you who know me well will know that without my stats I'm not a happy bunny and five hours later I'm still no closer to fixing it... which is why I'm posting my blog entry now, in case I've torched my laptop and lobbed it out the window before the night is out!

I did have all kinds of interesting thoughts lined up to post but as I am currently the polar opposite of today's picture I think I'll leave it at that and go back to banging my head against the proverbial brick wall!!



p.s. Well done to Ozzer, Eek, Liz, Sam, Tony, Ady and H for some great athletic achievements this week... I would list them but I'm to grizzly ;)

You must be in hell without those stats;-). I hope it all sorts itself soon!
