I’m not sure what happened yesterday, but I didn’t row as planned. Instead I went to bed for an hour or so, spent the rest of the evening on the couch except for making dinner (Thai rice noodle salad with crawfish; it was just a matter of assembling purchased ingredients and improvising a dressing) then going to bed a little early. I still feel a bit unenergetic, no idea why.

I had coffee on Sunday as an experiment, but I think Tuesday is far too late to feel effects from that (and I didn’t have any Sunday); coffee does often make me feel sickish and it’s a delayed effect, but by hours, not days. I suppose it could be a little bit of dehydration, or maybe just the effect of a superbusy day at work.

Today I won’t be working out either; after work I’ll take a train to Schiphol Airport, stay at Citizen M there overnight, and catch a plan in the morning. The flight is at 9:30; to get there in time and allow for contingencies I’d have had to be on a train at 5 or 5:30 in the morning. It’s much nicer staying at the hotel, especially as Citizen M is comfortable and always amuses me.
