Whew. After a tough week at work I was surprised, not pleasantly, at how drained I was for most of this weekend. It was a struggle to do much of anything. It didn’t help that I had to do some yard work on Saturday, and even though the recent heat wave is over it still was hot sweaty work. On Saturday evening I mustered up enough energy to go to the gym, and used the rowing machine – the rowing ergometer, to be specific. Rather than do a set time I decided to row 5,000 meters, using the distance show on the machine’s screen. It took me 27:03, probably not a fast pace, but it’ll be a baseline for future sessions. I also did my homegrown medicine ball exercise, 3 x 10 with a 20-pound ball.
Sunday I wasn’t really in the mood for the gym, though I did make it to my Buddhist meditation session at the yoga center.
