The week started fairly well as my local community gym referral finally came through. I arrived at my assessment full of excitement. The good news is that I could do the exercise programme recommended by my physiotherapists but the bad news is that my idea of going to the gym 3-4 mornings a week isn't going to happen as it soon became obvious that I need help getting on and off the equipment. This means I cannot go to the gym when I feel like and my local authority gym doesn't offer personal trainers :( The lovely manager has booked me in for two sessions next week when she is on duty but can't guarantee any future sessions. Hmmm.
Today Ali from Seal training offered me a final session on the rowing machiune before Sunday's event... The first 5 minutes were fine but then my left foot slipped out of my trainer again. I managed to keep going but my technique was definitely unorthodox!
So with just 4 days left to go and no more opportunities to use a rower, I haven't managed the distance or time without either my hand or my foot slipping off the machine.... Wish me luck as I am starting to feel quite apprehensive.
