Is that what you call an omen?

Lately my training has been ambling along without any particular direction. To address this I thought I would enter my first ever running race the

Now here is the cool thing. It finishes insider the Sydney Olympic Stadium.....with a 100 metre run to the finish line. What a way to love out a sporting fantasy. So with my entry completed I thought I would go for a lunch time jog.

Nothing crazy. Get some k’s in the legs sort of a thing

After about 500 metres I had to stop, my stomach was not feeling good. Pre race nerves? Not likely as it is 6 weeks out.....

Bad news is three hours later I was throwing up into a plastic bag outside my 70 year old neighbors living room. Classy.

Good news I have dropped some serious weight and will be lighter on my feet

Why do you need to take your shirt off when you get a chest x-ray?


I have been sick for 9 weeks, constant cough (read man flu) shivers lack of energy etc. After 3 courses of antibiotics and some blood tests I was sent for a chest x-ray

Good news it was clear. Bad news I need more tests

Man this is playing havoc with my training!
