Tired

Wow, dont even have the strength to post anything significant today. I knew I was tired but didnt realize how tired I actually was until I fell asleep on the subway and missed my stop. Seriously strong sleep but at least I didnt dribble or snore.... this time.

Anyway had some stuff to talk about especially one news item I heard of this morning but I too tired to be really coherent so will leave that til tomorrow. Just have to make it through today and get back home safely. No domino night with the boys tonight I too tired for that.

Mind you I have a squash match in like 2 hrs. Maybe thats partially why I'm so tired this week. Will be the 4th time I play for the week. Usually I average about two outings so this is a bit much. Oh well its against this older lady who works somewhere close to my office who I met on the squash courts a few weeks back. We just go knock the ball around for 1/2 hr, no real games and I sort of play at 65% speed. Actually I think I've been playing at less than 100% all year so far againt everyone anyways. I believe its mostly psycological given that the last two Januaries I've injured myself (back and groin injuries which kept me away from the game for a few months) and everytime I step on the court I'm very very aware of that. So no playing with reckless abandon this month at least.

Oh, the weather here is interesting. Yesterday we had a high of 17 Celcius which is like late spring weather. Today its -2 with a windchill of -10. Oh well at least I'm not in Calgary and them places so where its -26 or -32 without windchill. Oh and on Wednesday it was also cold and the sidewalks were frozen over. My usually one minute walk to the bus probably took about 10-12 minutes. I had to say it was a good thing I had gone out and bought those new boots last weekend instead of trying to make the old ones that were tearing away at the sole last through the winter because if I had to wear the old ones I might have taken a nice fall.

Oh and I woke this morning to find out that the West Indies cricketers lost again. Badly. Australia kicked their butts. I guess the more things change the more they remain the same. You just have to keep it real and say they are a struggling team but some folks seem to think that everytime we start a series it will be revealed that our players are really superheroes and we will become number 1 overnight. Oh well!

Thats all for now. Will try to make it through the day without falling asleep and then go home and see if the Raptors, 4-1at home in their last 5 games can win a road game against the sixers tonight. Enjoy your day folk.

I can feel you with the injuries bro. I have been struggling with back injuries for years. Last May was the worst for me. I actually ended up in 2 months of physio. Badminton is now only recreational. No more tournaments for me. It hurts not being able to compete but the physio visits hurt more so....
Get some rest.

Ah guess squash's loss is our gain, Jdid, 'cause now yu can save de reckless abandon for Bloggin'. :-) Less risk ov physical injury. At first when yu said you played at 65% against de older lady, ah thought it woulda been due to some peculiar athletic chivalry--no offense to feminists.
