Home sweet home …

I arrived home late last night, and it is very nice to be home at last. It was a successful business trip, but a very busy and tiring time, and I really missed my family this trip – I always do, but for some reason more so this time. Last night I had trouble sleeping, I think because I was still on Singapore time. Hopefully tonight will be better. I know it is going to a very busy time at work the next few weeks, catching up and getting a few year-end tasks done, so I’ll need my rest.

I was happy to see I was roughly the same weight as when I left this morning (200g heavier in fact) – I’m sure the gastro helped with that. For the first time in six years I recorded a zero exercise week in my training journal, two of them in fact, but really don’t care too much, which is a good sign I think. I did give the bike some oil and air in the tyres today, but didn’t get out for a ride, hope I remember how 🙂

The Bose QC15 headphones were wonderful on the flight yesterday, they really made it much more pleasant, both when using the airplane entertainment system and my iPod and iPad. I watched the “Captain America – The First Avenger” movie (he was one of my favourite comic book heroes as a kid) and it was really quite good. I know I’ve said this before, but Singapore Airlines are a great airline too, my favourite I think – the service is very good.

    Welcome back 🙂 Glad you liked the Bose headphones. I use them around at home too, drowns out the children (kidding!)

    I am in awe of your one exercise free week in six years.

    Welcome home. My dream is to fly a good airline one day (ie not Jetstar)! The headphones sound awesome. I’d be tempted to buy some but often need to hear outside noise – at work, on pt … and when running (if I ever go),

    I’m sure you’re glad to be back home with your family. My husband always traveled a great deal for work and he enjoyed it but as he got older he found it more difficult. But it must have been a bit of a respite being alone after the four girls endless chatter!

    I know you’ll get back to the exercise now you are home.

    I’m glad you made it home safely, Andrew, and none the worse for wear.

    I’ve read in several places that we should occasionally take a total exercise hiatus to reset metabolism and other … stuff, but it just doesn’t feel right, does it?

    One never forgets how to ride a bike Andrew .)

    Happy you arrived at home safely! I totally agree that good headphones make such a difference when travelling, and listening to music or watching a movie is the best thing to make the time fly by and arrive without being totally exhausted, because they protect you from all the hustle and chatter arround. 🙂

    Have fun with your bike – I’m sure it has missed you, too! 🙂
