If you ever want to have the gym to yourself, show up on a Sunday morning. I was there at about 9.30 today, and there was not a single person there. Now, some of you might think that is quite uninspiring, but for me it is perfect. To be honest, I don’t feel that I am at my most graceful as I do my exercises, so the fewer who are there to witness it, the better. The main benefit, of course, is that you don’t have to wait around for others to finish their programs, and enables you to get through your routine in the tempo you are comfortable with.
I haven’t changed my program much over the last few times I’ve been there, but all in all, I feel like I’ve made good progress. I am keeping a diary, and it is interesting to see where I am compared to when I started. I don’t think it is too interesting to list all these figures here, but I would definitely suggest that everyone who is training keeps such a diary. If for no other reason that it is very motivating to see that you are making progress.
So… what to do with the rest of my Sunday? Well, I have some work related stuff to take care of, but apart from that I will watch Rafa Nadal hopefully taking down his eight French Open title. He is just an amazing athlete and we are very lucky and proud to have him represent PokerStars.
