11 May 2012: Row, Row, Row The Boat…

This was blasting out as I headed to the gym with just one (stupid) goal in mind…


Time to bed (previous night): 21:30
Time got up (today): 03:30
Mood (1 to 5):
Morning 5


03:30 – 2 light Jatz crackers, glass water.
03:45 – Gym (see below)
05:30 – Small bowl high fibre porridge, orange juice
06:00 – Bus, meditate, nap
07:00 – Long mac, bacon and egg sandwich


5 mins warm-up bike – 2.336km
60 minute row – 11.217km



Britt put the idea out there recently, of doing a 60 minute row. As is usually the case with these suggestions (e.g. the casual question “how far is your office from Jacob’s Ladder?”) it lodged in my brain.

So today I inserted an extra gym session – warm up and then row for an hour while listening to Iron Maiden… I did it, I rowed just over 11km and it’s hard to believe that not so long ago, 500m was reasonably challenging!

Some good progress made in the past 12 weeks or so – long may it continue!
