squash racquetI played a game of squash with Woodsy today. A tall bastard with the reach of inspector gadget. I don’t know why I play him… Yes I do, because he kills me… Literally

He wipes the floor with me, but today I had a reprieve. He had a visitor from out of town so we played 2 on, 1 off. The sitting off never lasted long, but it was a break none-the-less. And this other guy gave Woodsy a run for his money. I don’t think he dropped a set all day, but I got close :-)

So we were on the courts for almost 2 hours and it was good. On the way home I stopped off at the Strawberry Hills hotel for a $5 steak (and a soda water). Considering these meals are so cheap, they are of exceptional quality. I have paid 2, 3 and even 4 times that for a steak of a much lesser standard. If you are ever in Sydney and like a simple meal (I mean, it’s can’t be too complicated for $5), then drop into the Strawberry Hills hotel on Devonshire Street. The serve meals til late. This almost feels like a shameless advertisement, but it isn’t. I have no vested interest in the place, other than the occasional meal.

Then after getting home, having a shower and getting changed, I decided to go to the gym at work and start and get all sweaty again. 15 minutes on the rowing machine which equated to about 3km. I then jumped on one of the computerised cycles and did another 10 minutes there. I raised a sweat, but I probably should have raised more…

next time…
