Notes

Mixed bag this morning – happy with rowing time (25 seconds faster than same row last Monday). Plank hold was frustrating – after the row and everything else I simply didn’t have the energy to hold for very long.

Weight… bit of a worry, 2 kilos heavier than same time last week. All I can say is I ate well over the weekend, including a family dinner last night. My body hasn’t finished “processing” so that may have affected the reading 🙂

Need to make an effort with the morning and lunch time walk – stuck behind the desk all day due to covering manager’s absence. Not doing the overall regime any good though!
