it was the best of times, it was the worst of times… or at the very least, this morning was one of mixed emotions and experiences. it started off well enough, I woke up, glanced at the clock and mentally punched the air when I realised I had enough time today to fit in a half marathon row (seriously, what has happened to me!!!) it all went downhill after that…
first of all, I did my 3rd wednesday pre-training weigh-in. for a change it didn’t register 119.1kg – this time it was 119.5kg! f&*^%^ f&*^& f&^*^*&!
it was a bit of a disappointment to say the least – I’m giving it one more week, if there’s still no change then I’m going to let the 100kg thing slide until the new year…
so then, after a quick warm-up, I sat down on the rower, set the clock at 21.1km and started rowing… at about 7km my left-hand arse cheek muscle started to complain, at 8km it wouldn’t shut up when told, at 9km it was more annoying than late night infomercial TV and at 10km I called it a day. by this time the by-now-familiar combination of hot and cold sweats had kicked in, so I simply rolled over and accepted disappointment number 2.
I then walked it off, doing 3km on the treadmill at a steady, comfortable 6km/h
overall – damn this sort-of-underlying-cold thing that refuses to actually show itself as a full-on cold, damn my left arse cheek muscle, and to hell with the stupid weightloss plateau shit that my body seems to think is a great idea…
I’m eating salads for crying out loud, I’m going to the gym, I’m generally avoiding bad shit – is this some kind of sick, twisted joke???
that said, I’m not going to let it bother me 🙂
