Today is Derby’s big FA Cup 3rd Round tie against Chelsea. A total sell out of course, mainly because the locals have been enjoy the current Derby revival. I fully expect a Derby victory.
Sadly Chelsea bring their entire first team and play rather well, although their shooting is somewhat wayward during the first half. In the end though they win though 2-0 without Derby giving them too much trouble.
I go to gym afterwards much to L’s shock. L is at home watching the Sound of Music, for the first time apparently. Her choice of how to spend her afternoon does not influence my decision to go to the gym at all. Honest.
I partake in a 15k bike, a leg weights session and a 1k row. The row takes place next to a champion rower - female, it is a sobering experience. If I was rowing on water I would have sank, in shame. I finish my 1k and head off to get changed. When I leave the centre 15 minutes or so later, she’s till rowing. Crikey. Overall though, not a bad session, in fact I nearly enjoyed it.
