My copy of Iron Man Ultimate 2-Disc Edition arrived today! I’m a bit surprised that it didn’t contain a booklet but it still looks cool.
I have been playing football once a week for just over a month now and I have realised something; I’m no footballer!
I have to say – it is quite good fun and definitely a good workout, however unlike most people there I wasn’t brought up on football but instead rugby. I haven’t the understanding or the love of the game and therefore the confidence to really be any good.
When I moved back to Coventry I was thinking about starting playing rugby again but I was nowhere near fit enough and as I had the opportunity to play football I thought it was a good way to play a team game while getting a bit fitter.
Now I am getting fitter (and not getting any better at football) I’m starting to consider playing rugby again, so in a couple of weeks I’ll make a decision after seeing how the gym goes but for now I’ll keep trying to keep up!
Yesterday I finally took the plunge and joined the gym. It isn’t as if I haven’t been exercising as I run most days, play squash at least once a week and play football (badly) on a Tuesday evening. However I haven’t really been getting the results I expected and as the mornings are getting darker and wetter I thought taking exercise to the next level might be a good idea.
My sister joined The Warwickshire Health & Racquets Club a few months ago and we were both members when we were juniors so knowing it is an excellent gym it seemed like the logical choice. Chris also joined last week which will hopefully mean I’ll go more frequently as I’ll have two gym buddies.
After joining yesterday I managed to book a gym induction for Today and I have to say – it was awesome. During the session my personal trainer put me through my paces with interval training and time really goes quickly exercising that way! Also the personal trainer told me I need to eat way more protein so now I have an excuse to eat meat with every meal! Result!
Wednesday morning is quickly becoming my favourite morning of the week. Originally it was one of the worst, having to get up slightly earlier than usual to avoid the cleaners! However it has evolved into something much better!
Wednesday morning is now Starbucks morning. In the beginning it was just me, I’d grab a paper and head down there for about 7.30am which was awesome. Now we are getting a little group of us down there regularly mostly consisting of Matt and Chris!
So, what are you up to next Wednesday morning? Fancy a coffee? Well feel free to call into Starbucks for a coffee and say hi!
