27 Nov 2012 – power

building work down the road slashed today’s session in half – not sure exactly what happened, but the net result was a complete power outage at the gym. as i headed home there was a small herd of hard-hatted blokes stood around outside trying to fix whatever they’d broken.

it’s a bit disconcerting having a treadmill suddenly stop on you, not to mention that it physically hurts your back and knees. with the treadmills and rowing machine instruments deprived of electricity, i called it a day.

marble got the benefit of an unexpected walk, so there was a plus side.

the power cut happened about 4am – luckily i had been awake around 2:30am and had hit the gym early – up until the point where i was so rudely interrupted I’d built up a good sweat with 2 lots of rowing and one stint on the treadmill in between. i had just started my second stint on the treadmill when it happened.
