Hey ho, Lets Go !
Listened to The Ramones on the fun drive into the office. Got up, eat 2 slices of toast with peanut butter on, and two plain and a great big mug of coffee. Excellent. But then went and put my wipers on because it was drizzle, and blow me, if the drizzle wasn't freezing rain, and I had to go and scrape the ice, which then froze as I drove along in little blobs. Glad I have a nice warm 4WD.
One of the (many) comments that got me banned from veloriders was my rant over that oxymoron, 'sports scientists'. Which is yet another worthless degree course pedled by crap colleges pretending that they can make dumb people clever. People get a BSc in sports cience, what a useless waste of 3 years. Read a bit of psychology, anatomy, physiology, coaching 'skills'. A little of each but insuffient to really understand the subject. Barfeld has a sport science degree, I think, yet he knows nothing about science and was (for me) a rubbish coach. And is for Babs also, as his performances have stayed the same since I have known him, from 3 years ago. Now I know Babs is into his late fifties, but given his level of dedication he should be progressing.
Well, I'm off to pretend to do some work.

And a consultant went yesterday, so thats three in UK, also more across Europe.
So, how motivated am I?

This much -----> ''

Which is about -99, a full-on negative motivation factor. Just like syscom in 1994, eh ? Tee fucking hee.

Arrived home yesterday evening planning a hard turbo session and did a half-hearted 15 minutes. What a waste.
Went to the doctors yesterday morning, the doc. I was seeing had left, and the doc. i saw assured me that spells of real lowness are nothing unusual, they should become less frequent.
Ho, and indeed, hum.
Anyhoo, I would really like to some some alpine climbing, how can I manage that ?

Back to the normal shit state of affairs at this crappy company, otherwise know as qed.
We are now organised into a global European group, managed from Holland. Ho ho, fucking ho.
Phil was unceremonially kicked out to save costs. What sort of bumbling, inefficient company ditches excellent people such as Phil, yet keeps tossers called Mark Brewhouse ? And continues the growth of HR. There are more admin 'people' than ever.
Not feeling good about life etc. Didn't go out over the weekend and drank a bit on Saturday. Sent Hazel some flowers last Thursday. Rang up to make an appointment with the Doctor I've been seeing for the past 6 months, only to find hes left the surgery. Nice chap, hope he has gone onto better things.
