I’ve been a bit quiet – which is unusual, but there’s a good reason for this.
After my practice week, I got home on Friday night and slipped on the top step of our wooden staircase. I then proceeded to travel to the bottom of the stair by bumping my behind on each step at some speed. Luckily I didn’t do myself a lot of damage but I did jolt my back and had a few sore muscles along the mid section of my spine. Therefore I had to take last week pretty easy as I didn’t want to risk doing any really damage.
This week however it’s all go before my (scheduled) rest week. I have two long walks planned for this weekend, and then begins the process of packing, deciding what I need to give to who to bring along at certain points of the route, and ensure I’ve got everything I need.
I must admit, I’m starting to get quite overwhelmed.
I’ll be fine until Monday when I won’t have the distraction of training, so if you see me next week and I look a bit overwrought, please just pat me on the back and tell me it’ll be fine. And possibly give me chocolate. 🙂
Any last words of wisdom very much appreciated (except for anything along the lines of ‘Don’t do it’ or ‘Have you heard of the wheel?’)
