(sick) (rest day)

More energy today despite allergies to cats worsening (sinuses/lungs); no need to nap in the day.

*Obviously*, a rest day. Liz also improving (which is of course more important), & managed to get to her kitchen unaided.

Wondering i I make 2020 a fallow year, and stop trying to look for a chance to do an endurance sport when I have clearly lost all endurance capability.

(sick) (rest day)

Liz was in a very , very bad way last night. I'm staying here 24/7 now. She can't get up stairs, get on her "feet" unaided, prepare any food or drinks, and was understandably very upset indeed (after 5 weeks of unrelenting disability).

Her ACL was rebuilt from some hamstring tissue from the OTHER leg, so that leg is temporarily injured; her operated-on left knee also has had the MCL repaired with an internal "splint", and her flipped over cartilige (meniscus) was put back the right way. Massive leg brace on for the next 12 weeks. OMG.

I was utterly wrecked all day so just did what i had to to care for her, and napped both morning & afternoon.

Chronic fatigue again. My problem isn't as bad as Liz's.

Happy 2020 - "new year, new you!" they scream. Too fucking right. For both Liz & me.

Wednesday Jan 8 #

(sick) (rest day)

Wiped out. Bugger. Annoying, but a 20 min run is currently too much and I think the weekend etc took it out of me.

Staying at Liz's most of the time, as she had her operation yesterday, she will be in a bad way for a while.

The rest period continues......... POM? OK, I guess......

THis is too tired to justify, tick ill again.

Steady 20 min run from home, felt grim.

Lower back & hips/buttock generally awful. Longgg way to go.

10 AM

Climbing 1:00:00 [3]

Sheffield "Awesome walls" climbing with Tim, both felt rough / tired after the w/e!

Good fun, tho shoulder still an issue. Did the speed route (same as Tokyo olympics), & our efforts can be seen (filmed them) on facebook. There was a teenage girl there flying up it, her best is 10 seconds....... I reckon i did under a minute twice.

Drove back home to Bristol.

Sunday Jan 5 #

(rest day)

Hungover and nausea in the night, felt v v tired, in fact two cars stopped / called to check on me at a layby near Skipton! (I was fine, but thanks)

Had hoped to run / orienteer @ AIRE / walk to Malham / go jogging somewhere nice, but all fell thru due to my state, & also shite weather.

Back to Tetts & a restful evening there. (once we'd unloaded the entire van.....)
