    @ianpspurs @Jenniewren1958 @ziggy_w thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. I’m still floating on cloud 9 and have a target in my mind of getting down to mid 30s by my next test in Sept.
    ianp hang in there, I’m sure you will find that sweet spot again, you seem to me to be doing brilliantly and have iron willpower, so it’s just a matter of time till you bend it to your will.

    Morning all. Day off today so a lie in by my standards. 4.6 at 5.45am. Off for MRI scan and then the one day international at the Oval.
