Sometimes ignorance rings true
But hope is not in what I know
It's not in me; it's in You

- Switchfoot – You – from Legend of Chin

My training progress
last week's target: 110k, 120 mins stepper actual 84k, 40 mins stepper
this week’s target: “whatever”
last week:
felt great on Monday
felt great on Tuesday.
felt great on Wednesday
felt very tired on Thursday
felt exhausted on Friday
couldn’t face running on Saturday
couldn’t face running on Sunday.
I forgot one of my important rules of thumb – feeling good for three days in a row is a warning sign!

weight: 63kg and rising
my weight target is sub 60 by 1/12/06.

quote of the week: "You're really Frank Shorter, eh?...What happened to you at Montreal?" - A Charleston cab driver upon learning he was driving Frank Shorter who won Olympic gold in Munich in 1972 and silver in Montreal in 1976.

Bones sinking like stones
All that we've fought for
All these places we've grown
All of us are done for

- Coldplay – Don’t Panic – from Parachutes

Grandad: In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

Stay tuned, everything will be better tomorrow.


  1. That's what a good sign should be.

    Attention Grabbing.

  2. I like that three good days rule of thumb. I usually find I have those sort of days and then the world catches up with me. Rest, rest, rest is a pretty useful rule of thumb for me.
