Blogging temporarily suspended

Well, I probably won't have internet access while I'm away in Bahrain, so you might have to wait until next week for an update from me. I got told off last year for not going into enough detail about the world championships, so even if I can't get online, I'll make notes and write about the whole thing at excessive length when I return. So that's something to look forward to!

Woo! This has been one excellent weekend's training for the world championship! I feel fully prepared for the rigours of competition! The only thing that worries me is that I might have crammed this final practice in a little too close to the championship itself - I really needed the training, so I'm still pretty sure this was best in the long run, but there's always a problem of my journeys not being fresh enough next Friday when I need them again.

So what I need to do now is blank out my brain completely. Not memorise a single thing between now and the competition. In fact, not even THINK about remembering anything, at all! That might cause a problem or two at work and in any social situations where remembering to wear clothes is a requirement, but I think it'll be worth it in the end. Just as long as while I'm remembering not to remember anything, I do remember to go to Bahrain.
