Feb 23 2012: Running Late

Despite being up at 4am, I somehow managed to miss my usual bus by a minute or so. I therefore took an alternative route into the office (so I could still be here around 7) which meant missing out on the riverside walk.

Not entirely happy about that – however these things happen and I’ve managed to get 2800 steps in along the way.

Rowing times at the gym were fantastic – it helped that my feet didn’t slip from the straps. Reason for this is I dug out an old battered pair of training shoes and they were better for the job as they have a more substantial heel.

At the end of the rowing I knew I’d given it all – with hindsight missing the riverside walk this morning may have been a good thing, giving the legs a chance to recover a little!
