Why I Need To Blog About Gym.

It dawned on me on Monday, that ever since I stopped blogging, my urgency to go the gym has also stopped. The obsession with group X classes has waned to a dangerous level. If it was represented by one of those heartbeat monitors in the ICU, I reckon mine would look like the surface of a mildly calm sea.....

I sms-ed a few people, bemoaning this fact, and yhsmom suggested it could be because of the ********* [censored]. If there is one thing I learnt from my previous blogging experience, it's that you really cannot reveal too much without eventually stepping on each others toes.

What have I been doing since the blog hiatus began?

These are more or less my regular group X classes, Combat on Tuesday, with Favourite Combat Instructor, (FCI...oh no, I got start redefinining them all over again), Wednesday, either pump, combat or RPM, Thursday is Body Squat with FSI, Friday again has become very iffy, since Favourite Pump Instructor abandoned us at MJH, or MRB, Saturday usually Combat with longest instructor, (as in he's been teaching there the longest), and Sunday Step with 2nd FSI.

Not enough Pump and RPM. The former mainly due to an elbow injury, probably a ligament or something, and the latter, well, sheer lack of incentive.

Yesterday's body combat, gosh, it was like being in a small fish tank with a thousand guppies. FCI's classes are always a crowd puller, and since he's taken over the Tuesday evening slot, the class really lacks oxygen. I reckon half my exhaustion is because of air shortage. It's one of those classes that you have to queue 20 minutes in advance to get into.

Okay, I am a bit out of practise talking about Group Exercise, but give me some time.

welcome back from the dark side!! didn't want to say anything but was bit surprised to not see you at last thursday's class - eve of public holiday was your excuse, I believe. this from the same man who used to plan his schedule by instructors and classes he wanted to attend. Glad you now see the light. Good to have you back.
