Lessons learned

April 5th, 2011

I’m listening to The Road by Catherine Jinks read by Kate Oliver, described as a “chilling thriller”. I borrowed it because I love Catherine Jinks.

I am highly affected by scary things (I find Midsomer Murders gritty and disturbing). The Road is becoming quite tense and that is causing problems. Yesterday before work I became over-engaged in the story and just sat on the edge of the bed for 15 minutes listening instead of putting on socks.

I should have known this would happen after the whole Murder on the Orient Express debacle. Unfortunately I am not a very good learner by experiencer.

Yesterday I also went to a session to learn about sports nutrition. It was all about a frightening one kilogram tub of protein. The fact that I found the product’s catch phrase, “train harder, more often” vastly unappealing and would have preferred “train less hard, less often” suggests I’m not really in the target market.

However, I did learn something useful about nutrition yesterday after all. Don’t eat a chicken and mayonnaise roll at 5.15 and then go for an energetic run at 6.30. Lesson learned. Although, I did previously learn a very similar lesson involving yogurt and a big piece of oat slice.
