I also went back to the gym after a week of nothing, well, except for LOTS of walking and a little swimming, and I was finding rowing incredibly dull (2:35.9 split, it looks fast but in truth the pressure lever kept sliding while I was rowing, 31 strokes per minute, heartrate 152 BPM, which was good). It was also VERY warm. I switched to biking and did my ten, and finally wound up on a machine with a heart rate monitor, and found I was at 152 there pretty consistently. That probably means I'm going to switch to biking, as I can read while I'm doing it.
shadowdaddy's signed up for a three month long French class starting today, so I was dateless for my trip to see Jane Horrocks in Brecht's The Good Soul of Szechuan at the Young Vic tonight with the West End Whingers, but wechsler has come through and will be joining me instead (review later on my Wordpress blog). Overall this should be a fun week - I am looking foward to being back!
