Back on the wagon

After a long layoff (having squashed 6 competitive seasons into 3 calendar years) - needed a long break to recharge and recover... that done, its been a hard road for the last month getting back in the pool and on the bike and out running.

Blood test shows Vit D level of 19 ng/ml, which is less than half of the minimum optimal range recommended by numerous health bodies... (32-50 lower end of optimal range, 65-70 upper end of optimal range). Melbourne winters are hard on the sun absorbtion factor, and the one just past was worse than the last few years as we finally got some relatively normal rainfall...

However, onward and upward.
