Whatcha! I'm Annie, a 30 something plodder. I reside (& sometimes run & do other triathlonny activities) in Barth. My greatest foe (apart from crisps 'n woine) is my cozy, comfy, warm, yet extreeeeemely Evil Sofa[TM]that insists on sucking me up, rather than letting me get to get out for a swim, cycle, or run.

I Must Go Down To The Gym Again

seeannietriby seeannietriJun 16th 2009
I must go down to the gym again to the sweaty gym and it's kit,

And all I ask is a free treadmill and a bike so I can get fit;

And the mixed gradient, the variant pace, and the neighbouring gymmers a-puffing,

And a steady drip down a determined face, and a heap of grunting and huffing.

I must go down to the gym again, for the call of the mechanical rower,

Is a steady call and a firm call to ensure m'derriere's not a grower;

And all I ask is twenty-six strokes a minute, with the rower's fan a-reeling,

And the strain'd arms and the forrowed brow, and the muscle marys preening.

I must go down to the gym again, to the fanatical fitness haven,

To the exerciser's way and the dieter's way, where the gym-tarts are brazen;

And all I ask is a hard-core beat on the iPod hit-list,

And a snug glow and a hearty meal when the long session's finished.
