Since I started at the gym,
My laps are speedy, times more trim.
I in the past ran out of puff,
My legs were never strong enough.
Now only one thing’s less than fab:
The contribution from my abs.
Why is it that work on the core,
Is such a total, indescribable PITA?
[This evening I went for a run. I usually go once a week or every other week, but recently I’ve started going to the gym on top of that. I love the machines at the gym; they have numbers that go round, which keeps me amused. Bearing in mind that a few years ago I used to run twice a week, I’m amazed at how much stronger I’ve become now – legs and stamina – than I was even then, just by doing targetted exercises. However, my core strength is the thing that lets me down. I have yet to find a way of making sit ups fun.]
