Personal circumstances, once upon a time, would have been ignored in an attempt to simply plough on through progress unaffected. That can’t happen any more. My mum’s due to go in for surgery next week and as she is in her 70’s, it is not wise to commit myself to anything at all with previous knowledge of how my family deal with this sort of stuff. As a result, everything needs a re-arrange. It’s not the end of the world.

I got on the scales this morning, expecting a weight gain, and was not disappointed. However, this is the most satisfactory period of energy and recovery post blood donation since I started, so lessons have been learnt. Therefore, as we have a nice, long period before Christmas, it is time to see if all this stuff that’s been learnt about metabolism and exercise has stuck or whether it is all just a fallacy.


As a result, I need to be in the Gym this morning, and then I need to be back here rearranging the October planning. So, if you’ll excuse me…
