25 sep 2012: comfortably numb

aching a little today, not sure if it’s due to the 11km walk yesterday, or the work in the garden at the weekend. had a great night’s sleep, and didn’t wake until just before 4:30 (body recovering no doubt).

as i did weights yesterday, i decided to hit the rowing machine this morning, opting to do 10km. target time was 40 minutes, which required a pace of 2:00 per 500m. that worked out fine for the first 5km, dropping marginally in the second half of the row.

net result was a couple of minutes shaved off the previous best time for 10km, and only 24 seconds to shave off to hit 40 minutes – maybe if those muscles hadn’t been aching 🙂
