He changed the routine! I was becoming quite attuned to the pain of my Tuesday evening circuit class when He changed the routine! There was a paucity of equipment laid out on the floor when we all arrived which did not bode well. He looked incredibly pleased with Himself as we filed in, wary eyes darting suspiciously around the bare hall. Where was our equipment?
“Tonight will be about working using your body’s weight” He announced gleefully. I reckoned He just couldn’t be bothered hauling out all the equipment. Maybe, on reflection, I shouldn’t have mentioned that, at least not to his face. I hate push ups…I hate sumo squats…in fact I found there were quite a lot of exercises I hated. It was all a matter of degree. As He swaggered past my faltering efforts He seemed very pleased with Himself.
On the last station before the end of class I tried to do a star jump! This involved a lot of uncoordinated flailing of limbs. I probably looked more like a demented jellyfish than a star. I tried a second but didn’t even get off the ground. The legs had packed in…totally.
That was Tuesday. My legs couldn’t manage the spin class on Wednesday. His scheming had uncovered muscles I didn’t know existed. I was happier in my ignorance. It’s now Thursday and I’m becoming anxious about a walk on Saturday.
There is an optimistic school of thought that believes I may walk again, though not necessarily in this life. 😦
