It was a quiet Sunday and I had nothing on after I came home from the swim that BBC. I was too tired to go to the gym yesterday so I was shamed into going this afternoon. It turned into a pretty good session. I really feel I have entered a new phase were I can now do a lot of these exercises without too much pain. The Virgin gym at French’s Forest is very quiet on a Sunday afternoon and I practically had the place to myself. It’s a strange experience being in a large cavernous space like a gym, with very few people about and just going quietly about your exercise program. Gyms are not that sociable. People don’t talk to each other and they get absorbed in their own world. A lot of people exercise with headphones on indicating they are not interested in communicating with anyone around them. I think that’s why I’ve never really enjoyed going to gyms because they are essentially antisocial. Nevertheless, this was a really mellow session and the leg press machine in the gym is next to one of the floor-to-ceiling windows. I sat there doing my leg presses and looking out over the bushland, down towards the ocean and the harbour. There are worse ways to spend a bright sunny afternoon.I did the same round of exercises that I did with Belinda in the city during the week although I up the number of sets with the leg press and also the leg. I really have my heart set on getting to 80 kg with the leg press as this is my body weight. I feel if I just keep at it it will come pretty soon. The leg extension and leg curl machines will be harder to build up as I’m only using my bad leg.
