The Beginnings of a Breakdown

Have you ever piled enormous mounds of food upon your plate at an all-you-can-eat buffet, knowing full well that you'll never finish it all but picking out the largest, nicest looking pork-pie or piece of quiche regardless.

Of course you have, but if you're anything like me you'll continue to forget the fact that your eyes are far bigger than your stomach. Unless you're a swimmer. A swimmer that actually trains sufficiently regularly, that is.

Everything has finally proven too much.

And it turns out you can't do it all. At least, I can't.

November Ramblings

36 days.

36 days may not sound that significant in the grand scheme of things, however it sure does feel like a lifetime ago. It's completely brain-baffling to think that so much can occur in such a small space of time, and there's less than 20 days until Christmas!

It's been exactly 36 days since my last blog post. November is normally the month through which I struggle to maintain a positive attitude, however this November has been almost non-stop. I literally haven't had chance to think otherwise.

Apart from not training as much as I would have liked, I'd say that the last couple of weeks have actually been pretty enjoyable! Albeit a little stressful. I'll give you that!
