Oh…please…grrph…grulp…garff… Yep, I had to stop twice on the way up and over Kloof Nek this morning. I would like to think that this was because I’d nailed my fastest ever 8km time trial yesterday, followed with 80 lunges, lat pull downs, triceps and heel dips for dessert and then back on the treadmill for a 40 minute warm down. But my honest self will admit that this latest bout of slacking was due to the bottle of local rosé I swigged at last night’s bookclub (I was damn thirsty – see above).
