My ‘intention’ was to go to the gym, have a new programme set and then head home…..but I just thought I’d have a. quick look at the sea at Sandown Bay. I drove down and sat in the car for five minutes and then headed off, deciding that sans hot water for bottle and no hot drink it would be daft. I headed up Sandown high street and lo and behold, ended up back at the seafront like a lamb…etc. However, the ensuing dip was well worth the effort! Not long but refreshing and my equivalent to an ice bath after a weight session. SOOOO good! Even dressing in the rain couldn’t dampen my spirits. Only ever regret something you HAVE done!
