Physical

I just had a small physical down at the gym; came back with 150/86 blood pressure, which is fine but a bit high on the first figure, that’ll hopefully go down the more I exercise. My resting heart rate came at 70 which is fine, my cholesterol is too low to measure1 and my blood glucose level is at 3.2%, which apparently is considered pretty low. All-in-all not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, although my blood pressure has gone up since I last measure it a couple months back2 it’s still not too much of a worry.

I got shown around the gym by a cute little blond3 and I was surprised to find the exercise bikes and treadmills all have built in TVs. I was also given a little key fob that records every work out, including the calories burnt!

I’m now looking forward to giving it all a try on Monday.


  1. While at my age you’d expect that, my diet hasn’t been very healthy lately but I think my light lunch did the trick into fooling them!
  2. But back then I was swimming 30 to 40 lengths a week, and now all I do is walk up some stairs everyday.
  3. Dyed blond of course and she looked a bit chavvy, but her cute, cheeky personality offset all of this, although she still worried me when she said now, take your shirt off and lie down.
