I was going to buy myself one of those humpty dumpties with chocolate beanies – they were half price at Coles – but then I read how many calories are in them. Holy moly, I don’t need that.
I went to High Performance RPM tonight. I had planned to do a quick run on the treadmill as well but I only thought that because I’m a fool. You do very little after High Performance RPM. It should be called High Pain RPM. We kept doing these rides where you bump up the resistance and stand then sit down without taking off the resistance, then put on my resistance and do it all over again. I could hardly turn the pedals.
I swear I was on a dodgy bike cos I only had to turn my resistance a teeny bit and it was insanely hard. It was hard going with NO resistance. Last week I had my resistance up nearly the full way on the bike I had. You’d think they’d calibrate these things but it seems not.
Yesterday I decided not to exercise because I wasn’t feeling great but then I felt guilty so I went for a walk. It really annoys the hell out of me walking down Smith St during the weekend – the place is full of people going into the sports outlet shops buying expensive runners when they so obviously don’t exercise. I’ve never liked or worn runners as casual shoes and I think it’s damn foolish to spend all that money unless you have a specific reason for it – ie. unless you actually run. Sometimes I feel like getting behind them with a cattle prod and making them use their shoes properly. Mostly I’m just jealous because I need new running shoes and can’t afford them for a while.
Also, is there any advantage to buying label name sportswear? I buy most of my gym stuff from K-Mart. I’ve been into the factory outlets a few times but even when it’s reduced, it’s so much more expensive and I can’t see any difference. No way in hell would I pay $50+ for a pair of tracky pants. Well not unless there is some secret ingredient in them that would make me run faster or better.
