Rio Olympics Blog — Day Twelve: Much needed rest


And then there was a glorious day of rest.

After three days of waking up early to get to rowing, I finally got the chance to sleep in on Tuesday. And it was awesome.

The break gave me the chance to do somethings I had been meaning to take care of, like laundry and a bit of housekeeping. But most importantly it was a time of rest.

But it wasn’t all just lounging around. I had my usual 3-9 p.m. shift at, which wasn’t too eventful. All I did was compile their daily “here are nine things that happened today” post. But again, it was restful.

Wednesday will be a bit more of these. I’m covering sailing at 1:05 p.m. local time, but I don’t have a shift for Instead, I’m hoping to watch the Brazil vs. Denmark men’s soccer match in the Rio Live section of the park. That should be something.
