As we shut the door on 2020 (and throw away the key), I just wanted to give a quick update with what’s been going on my end recently, and share a few things we have in the works over the next few months.
As you might already know, I tested positive for COVID-19 mid-December after a flare-up of joint pain, fatigue, mental health stuff and a slight temperature.
It was a bit of a surprise, as I stay away from crowded places (pandemic aside) and only tend to leave the house to go for the occasional walk or run.
But that’s neither here nor there (such a great/strange phrase).

I spent 10 days in isolation – resting, eating, reading, and roaming around old-timey Britain in Assassin’s Creed. There were a few rough days but generally I had it pretty good.
I came out of isolation on Christmas eve, had a sleepless night (waiting for Santa), and began experiencing breathlessness on Christmas day. This triggered what I now recognise as a panic attack, which happened a few times throughout the day. The doctors gave me the okay in the evening, and the festivities resumed.
I’ve since experienced occasional breathlessness and chest tightness, along with interrupted sleep patterns (it seems the bat-borne virus leaves you with their circadian rhythm), and general fatigue. Hence very little output here on the site, and in life in general.
The good news is that over this past week I’ve started to feel significantly more human, and have even got back into regular training at home.
I had a quite a few things planned to be ready for January, but COVID happened and work had to go on the back burner.
Now that I’m recovering, there’s a few things I have lined up for the next few months here on the site:
I hope you’re well and having a great to start to the new year, wherever you are in the world.
