Fitness and gym related notes
« on: November 06, 2011, 06:45:29 PM »
Blissfully knackered but a soak in a Radox bath does wonders   whistle:

About an hour of CV stuff followed by a selection of muscle tone contraptions. I finally see the point of mind-numbing TV; no mental engagement required whilst you're pounding the cross-trainer  ;D

I hope I can keep this up; I need to  redface:

Did a 10k run in 57 mins  8)  and then 10 miles on the bike.....a few stretches to finish and then a sauna as my poorly limbs were in shock  noooo:

So was there much to keep you distracted in there ?

Did you encounter any Growler changing room issues ?

Distraction?  eeek:  I spent most of all the time following all the onscreen data and trying to figure out whether I was doing what I'd agreed to in the programme session yesterday  scared2:
The gym section has only been open a week or two and is heaving with all the latest kit as far as I can see. Perhaps when I get the hang of them I can plug-in, download my results, watch the telly, listen to something other than the ubiquitous KissFM  ;)

Changing rooms are pristine and deserted  cloud9: . No issues other than deciding whether I use my padlock or a 1 coin  rubschin:
I will post a pic in due course; they really are that empty  Shrugs:

Oh, some wumman was cycling next to me; she was pedalling away with her elbows rested on the handlebars whilst flicking through a clothing catalogue ... is this normal?   rubschin:

Not just for wimmin ...some bloke in there today had his Kindle rested on the screen of the bike and was scrolling away and pedalling away. Sweat must have been dripping all over it  noooo:

Also people that bring their mobiles into the gym and then have conversations whilst on machinery ...again mainly blokes , but I think that's cos they are in there for hours  noooo:

Oooh, does that mean I can post on the VP from the cross-trainer?   Nah. Forget it. I'd probably fall off  redface:
