Cycling (indoor and various gym) 20:00 [3]

On a company residential trip at Nottingham Uni and we were promised complimentary access to the uni sport facilities, turns out this doesn't including the rock climbing which is what I had gone to use having packed all my dad's stuff and out of principle I didn't return to get my wallet and pay the £6 fee.

So I ended up in their fancy new gym which you're not allowed bags in, so I had to climb the two floors of stairs twice (2 minutes) to go back to the lockers.

I jumped on a fancy wattbike and downloaded the app, after a little while sat there I had worked out how to use it, but it wasn't a good enough model to allow me to climb alpe d'huez which the app was tempting me with. Not having my heart rate strap I didn't know what effort I was putting in, so started a session of 40s on, 20s off but got tired after 5/20 reps, I was doing about 350w which seems like a lot and maybe why I got too tired. I then just cycled slowly for a bit (14 minutes).

Then got onto a treadmill for the first time in a year and was reminded in 2 long and really boring minutes why I don't run on treadmills (2 minutes).

To justify my time there I went over to where the big boiiiss were and loaded two beefy 10kg weights for my massive 40kg set of 6 front squats. I then wanted to shove my alpha maleness into all of their faces so put on an extra 2.5kg on each side to ramp it up to 45kg. I only managed 4 of these before losing my form a bit too much so then swallowed my pride and went back to 40kg for a final 6 (2 minutes of actual work, 2 minutes of tensing in the mirror.)

As I walked out I could feel the tension lift behind me as the hefty lads no longer felt pressured to impress me.

Will I be back, probably not.
