Panda eyes are SO not a good look. Plus, not only does it affect performance in the gym, but also slows down any improvements on the physique. Be told. Do as Gym Ninja says (and not does) and get to bed early!!!
Yet, whaddayaknow? Despite knowing this, Gym Ninja went to bed late AGAIN! Of course, as it was hot last night this meant an intermittent sleep too. Great. Marvelous. Makes for a fantastic 'essence of knackered' look the next morning...
However Gym Ninja was determined to make the effort this sunny Sunday. Another reason was that Gym Ninja planned on donning the old shorts seeing as it was gloriously sunny. That meant an extra tough leg day right? No point wearing shorts unless one can bounce coins off one's thighs....
After a 10 minute steep incline treadmill walk, Gym Ninja was ready to tackle another hour of Extreme Spin. The weekend sessions are the only classes Gym Ninja ever bothers with, what with being antisocial and all. Dangly was in place as ever so Gym Ninja took up her 'I'm a creature of habit so don't even THINK of sitting on my bike' and chatted casually to him. Meanwhile, Cult Man trotted over...to talk about Kangoo again.
"You really should try it you know." He enthused.
"Did you give it any thought after what I said?"
Gym Ninja nodded.
"I did think about it, but when I saw everyone boing across the running track in their Kangoo boots I thought they looked a bit too bouncy for my liking, so I think I'll not be trying it."
Cult Man seemed crestfallen.
"It's really gentle on your joints you know. I've even brought some carpet tape in, to strap up my ankle. I can bounce for 5 minutes now!"
At this, Cult Man seemed proud.
If you have to strap up a join with carpet tape, then perhaps this is not the class for you??????
The hour of Spin passed quickly again. Today was Spin Climb, so lots of hills, standing sprints and jumps. Enough to really burn out the legs! However, being a bit of a sadist, Gym Ninja was quick to finish off her lower body with some added leg work, part of which was the almighty leg press.
Gym Ninja loaded on 3 x 25kg plates either side, totaling 150kgs and got ready to blast through some reps.
