Sofa Dweller

That was me on the weekend. On Saturday I was completely out of it, I vegetated on the sofa most of the day. I remembered mid morning about the Farmers Market and managed to get to that, then took up residence on the sofa again. It was the only thing I achieved all day. I couldn't even read a book my concentration was so shot. On the plus side I had a much better nights sleep and woke up feeling a bit more like myself.

It was a sunny day and I thought I would go out for a run in the afternoon, 10 miles or so! As the morning wore on the length of the anticipated run shortened until I realised I was actually still tired and to take it very easy again.

I cleaned some bikes, worryingly I can't get the seatpost to budge in my On One, sprayed some WD40 on it but need to have another go at trying to loosen it and hope to hell it hasn't been stuck in permanently.

I at least had a concentration span and spent the whole afternoon reading a good book, which was really enjoyable. It was "Dear Fatty" by Dawn French, I can really recommend it. A bit of a waste of a sunny day really.


  1. I haven't ridden or run since Sunday; and today I haven't managed to get out of bed.

  2. i see you're following my plan of the super taper ;)

  3. Ooh, look after yourself. I'm not riding tonight as having a very easy week and I just can't seem to take it easy MTBing. Am going to do some core and cry at how much it hurts.

  4. not so much a taper as incapability, scary how knackered I was. I've been there before and it took me ages to shake the tiredness, I'm hoping I've not gone too far.
