"Do what I should do, not what I can do"

Visit to my friendly, long suffering GP this morning. He's a jogger (5k's most mornings, although he has a knee injury which is preventing him from running), and understands the importance of exercise for me.

However, the evidence mounted that my body, specifically my digestive system, cannot handle the level of activity (to Wit; running). Although I have a 'tender liver' (Lamb's Fry for dinner anyone?) and require some tests for liver function and inflammation markers, this seems to be the same old, same old that has been going on for 14 years or so.

Specifically, it seems that my gut is getting inflamed with 'overtraining' (for me) and resulting in a cycle which lays me low for a while.

Marathon in 3 and a bit weeks. Triathlon at Geelong in a few days. Bob does lots more than me.

    Take it easy in Geelong Flash. Those triathlons can knock you around. Olympic Distance? I'm not sure I'd even be doing one 3 weeks from the marathon. Throw in a few more rest days. Good luck. I hope you're feeling healthy on the day. Don't tire yourself out if you spectate at Forster.
