These Weary Old Bones....

I think if I were to take those tests that determine your biological age versus your chronological age, I won't fare very well. Probably 65 vs 41. Two weeks of absence from Body Pump has rendered me limp as a weeping willow in winter. And it doesn't excite me in the least that YI has declared at almost EVERY track, that the new release is going to be MUCH harder. Does Les Mills choreograph the new releases on the assumption that everyone has been following them since inception, and like a first grader, progressively make their way towards university? I pity those new comers who come, and are exposed to flying evasive sidekicks, those nasty triceps movements, what are they called? The one that debuted in the last release? Apparently lots of them this new release. Sigh, but I guess most newbies are young, so they can cope.

I find that of all the classes, the one when time seems to creep at snail's pace, is Body Pump, followed VERY closely by RPM. It seems like an eternity. Anyway, I was thankful for small mercies, such as the fact that Lionheart WASN'T there yesterday, which meant YI wasn't obliged to kill the rest of us with killer tracks. After a two week hiatus, a Lionheart skewed class might have rendered me in traction.

Although I haven't been blogging regularly, I suprisingly haven't done too badly last week. On Thursday, lunchtime, I managed to attend FSI's body step. He must be feeling the lurve by now, I've been attending his class quite regularly. Last Saturday, then Thursday, ...his lurve chart must be thru the roof. I don't even see FCI with such regularity.

FSI's class was exhausting as usual, and a great lunchtime workout. Leaves me starving the rest of the day, and makes me feel like I need to constantly forage for food.

On Saturday, IPOD wasn't teaching in Curve, but instead was teaching in Manulife, at 6pm, nikeboy's old slot. His Curve slot was taken up by some chick doing her video certification. So ya, suited me fine, save RM10, by not making that long trek to the curve. Sunshine was there, with her sister, (whom I have seen before, and thought was an instructor), and although it wasn't terribly packed, it was a great class as well. Very intense, 45 minute class. I love it when sweat starts to drip down your arms. It's such a wild, liberating feeling, as if you are a gladiator fighting lions. Oh, speaking of gladiators, there was this mean fighting machine at the back the class, who looked like a boxer cum wrestler kinda thing, BUT, snigger, his timing was more off than a MAS flight schedule. And then, in the male changing room the guy doused himself with what must have been half a bottle of cologne, effectively fumigating the entire men's room. Cough cough choke choke....why do people DO that.

On Sunday, talk about motivated, I also went for 2nd FSI's class. I find his classes thoroughly sapping. And his track 10, must be the longest track 10 ever. The knee repeaters, and the skiing, and the over and over, just never seemed to stop!!!

And I just heard from Sunshine that FCI is launching the new release in Axis on Saturday at 4.30pm. Ipod at Curve, or FCI at Axis. Choices Choices. Axis would be cheaper though. No toll, free parking.

Shades...where got no one at IOI wor? There is Richelle and Boy Robin for pump and Macho Nippon Lady Instructor and Richelle for BS right? Am contemplating going to IOI versus SPK, where they have Wenisa and Nick Heng for pump...hmmm

FBB...I think the painful tricep moves you are talking about is the pullovers. Yup, heard they have 10 of those in the new release. From what I have heard, nearly everything are killers...pump, step and rpm, with the exception of ahem....combat....I have to see that.
