Death of a Client

Death of a Client

Another long day in the office and another workout on the way home. My legs are feeling OK and not quite as heavy as yesterday or over the weekend, but I just wanted to spin out the fatigue and so I jumped on the indoor bike and got going shortly after arriving. In...
Once More Into the Breach

Once More Into the Breach

A long day in the office without much of a break but I still had the energy to get into the gym this evening for a recovery workout. The plan? A little bit of bike, a slow jog, and then home to eat a beautifully seasoned pan-seared duck breast finished off in a hot...
