25 April 2012: ANZAC Day

On a day when everyone is saying “Lest we forget”, let’s hope that one day politicians, rulers and other egomaniacs stop sending people into pointless wars. Let’s hope that one day there will be nothing to forget…

Walkabout Wellness

Weighed in at 126.8kg – significant milestone as this now puts me under 20 stone for the first time in a while!

5 min warm-up on bike
1000m row – 3m 56s – personal best!
Boxing session – various permutations of boxing, crunches, push-ups, squats, lunges and running. Hard session, good fun!
4 x 200m row. 36s, 36s, 37s, 37s – the leader board still eludes me!


No gym this morning, so I stayed up later last night (working) and had a gentle start to the day…

The reason for this is that I’m going to the 4pm session at Walkabout Wellness instead. Variety is the spice of life…

Summary of the day – a good day all round!
