    11.8 after weeks of around 6, 7 at the most. For me that is very low. But 11.8 is very high. Even for me. Down to a bad night, maybe. Nothing special to eat or drink yesterday or day before.

    Well I like to have a sub 6 daily average. That goes up if I’m not careful, although I sometimes wonder what I’m supposed to be being careful about, so I’m with you there.
    I haven’t been moving about enough though and whatever woe one subscribes to it seems that moving a bit is important.

    Rushed out house to train at 7.30am so didn't remember to test until 2 hours after my post exercise sausage mushrooms eggs and bacon when it was 5.3. Does that count? I'm counting it.

    5.6 today, snap @Rachox . I’m happy with it as I didn’t wake up til nearly 10am so thought it’d be higher ( couldn’t put my book down last night and stayed up til gone 2am to finish it)
