As the title may suggest, I have just completed the last scheduled 5k erg test of 2011. “HOO-RAH” I hear you all cry and indeed it does deserve a cheer. Of course, with over 6 weeks until we reach 2012, I had best err on the side of caution and I am making this bold claim with my fingers crossed, whilst resting them firmly on a wooden table and holding a rabbit’s foot (well a vegetarian-friendly replica!). It is hardly a glamourous way to spend a Friday evening but it actually worked quite well – I left my work properly behind me in the office so I was completely focussed on the erg and we went for dinner at the pub afterwards without the worry of work tomorrow. Lou and I have agreed we may try the Friday night approach again.
Of course, this weekend I get a Saturday morning lie-in because I am *sharp in-take of breath* not going to training tomorrow. The reason: this Sunday is ‘The First Wedding Anniversary’, so Sam has organised a surprise fun event. The last year has gone so fast, although I would not want to rewind to this time last year – far too much stress and angst. Many people say they would love to live it again; I am personally just happy with the memories.
So, on that note I am going to bid you all goodnight and go back to watching the end of ‘Transporter 3’ before getting some well-earned, post-erg sleep!
