It wasn’t a great weekend just past, in fact it sucked in a lot of ways. The cough I had towards the end of last week turned into a full-blown chest infection (which has now moved North and is now living in my sinuses), which put pay to both my plans of a good swim and saw training missed. Someone up there had it in for more than me though, and a very good friend of mine got told they had a shocking eye infection and had to lose their own training for the days as well, which was gutting.
But that was then . I did manage to get a haircut on Saturday morning (and hopefully managed to infect the chav idiot and his ‘women’ who sat next to me driving me mental with their drivel), and I’m feeling much better now. Work stuff is finally starting to ‘take’ in my brain now so I’m feeling slightly less stressed there too, which is a welcome relief – it’s nice to not have an impending headache for a while. In less than two weeks I’m going to be wandering the halls of ExCel in London gawping at the greatness that is Seni, and by the looks of it I might even be spending a day or two in the capital again in June meeting up with some games-loving forumites to see what the fuss is all about. If what I’ve been told to expect up there is as good as it sounds, I’m sure I’m going to be in for a great couple of days!
Back to training tomorrow night, regardless of what my lungs tell me, I’m missing it too much already. For anyone who’s been suffering some ‘downtime’ lately, and knows what it’s like to get right back into the thick of it, this is for you.
