I had a different gym instructor yet again today. This one was best of the lot. But I did nearly get the giggles when he was introducing me to a new (and rather strenuous for an unfit and rather..er.. shall we say “rotund” old woman) exercise.
Him: I want you to do ten repetitions.
Me: (after the sixth)I’ve lost count. Was that six or seven?
Him: It was four. Only eight more to go 😀
Me: (exhausted at the end) I used to teach Maths – do you need some extra lessons in counting?
Him: Oh, I can count, but it got fourteen repetitions out of you when you baulked at the suggestion of ten 😀
This instructor has the measure of me. I think he’s been reading my blog.
