It was quiet at the gym. It feels like a lifetime since I’ve been to the gym but it’s actually only about a month, if that. In that time however they have installed a self scanning (by card) entrance into the gym section. You scan your card and wait for the gate to open to let you through. Well I did that…at least I thought I did that but found the gates closing on me as I tried getting through. It seems that I need to wait a nanosecond or two between scanning and walking. Who knew getting in to the gym could be so technical!
I also revisited the rower – my nemesis. I really don’t like this machine but I have to admit it is good for overall fitness and upper body strength. So I put aside my prejudices and spent the next 5 minutes doing my warm up on this machine. Granted it wasn’t so bad so I may do this again.
Then after work I did a short intervals session on the bike – 10 x 1min hard (1 min easy), with a warm up and cool down. Thirty minutes later and I was done for the day.
Tomorrow: the plan is to swim before work and then venture out for a run at lunchtime, weather and work permitting.
