Not Gonna Get Us

I think of all the combat conditioning tracks, one of the toughest ones is this one, Not Gonna Get Us by Tatu, which is also the trademark of FCI. And the fact that there have been no pushups in the latest combat release, this track came as quite a jolt. In a good way, no doubt. The other killer push up track is probably We Will Rock You.

As usual, I arrived late, and was told by the girl at the front desk, "Are you here for combat?", I nodded, and she said, "You're too's full". Not exactly the kind of news one wants to here, after rushing like mad to attend. Anyway, I figured that if nothing, I'd use the free hot water in the gym, since it's paid for. Another pal, Roger, was in a similar predicament. And the guardian at the gate, (the woman who takes the registration at the studio door) very sternly said, just by eye contact, "no no, you can't go in, it's full". I could imagine her wagging her finger like a headmistress with hands on her hips, and bun on her hair, telling a school boy, "you're late boy, you cannot go for class today, its detention for you".

With the perserverance of an everest climber, I lingered around, plaintively, hoping for FCI to see the distressed position I was in, and exert his influence and bring me in, nevertheless....but no such luck. But, however, it appeared that many registrants DIDN'T turn up. Must have double booked. So, the studio did not seem so packed, commensurate with the numbers that registered. Twas then, that a ray of hope pierced through the dark clouds, and melted the ice on the guardian of the gate, and she thawed, and said, okay, you can go in.

It's nice to be doing the old tracks again, after two weeks or so of continuous new release. Alas, the mike konked out halfway, and somehow, having to rely on visual cueing, isnt quite the same, especially when there is no stage in MJH, AND, the instructor ain't exactly urm.....very visible in that large crowd.

Lots of the "usual suspects" were there this time round. Shanticombat, whom I'm never seen in MJH, Kitty, Pick Yin, and obviously, judging by the forum, lady nina as well.
