Steady State / recovery erg and shocking news
I slept badly from Sunday to Monday and thus I was a bit tired when I started the row in the evening. I settled for a short, light, recovery row.
Today, I am travelling to Brussels on a business trip. When I landed in Brussels, Romana called me to tell me the shocking news of the death of Michal Plocek, a very talented Czech single sculler. They found him on Monday evening at the boat house of the Prague rowing club Dukla. I didn’t know him personally but I saw him at races, and he was a talented rower and a very nice guy.
There are speculations in the media (which are very rapidly jumping to conclusions as usual) and apparently the police is investigating the death.
Let me just say that it is a big loss to the Czech rowing community, and a huge and tragic loss to his family and friends.

Jumping Jack in Hotel Room and Fashion
I am on a business trip. The plan was to hit the hotel gym before breakfast. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to pack my gym shoes. And I didn’t want to expose the pink-clad spinning ladies that live in hotel gyms to my ugly old rower feet, so I had to revert to plan B, inspired by this post.
That was enough to start sweating.
I set a timer to 15 minutes and did the following circuit as many times as possible.
I managed 4 circuits. The push ups were the worst. The circuit was probably a bit too light on the body weight squats so I made them jumping squats for the second round of 15 minutes, in which I managed 4 and a half circuits.
That’s it for the day, apart from meetings. This will be the 38th “Programme Committee” that I will attend. It will also be the last one for this programme. Then, in the afternoon, we have the 1st “Programme Committee” for the next programme. Will I be able to do another 38?
