Ever taken a shortcut?

Posted on Fri 16 February 2007 in general

I did a quick lunchtime stint at the gym yesterday as I was out in the evening. I made a quick enquiry about the FitLinxx system and ended up with an instructor who specialises in helping runners. It turns out that just doing a lot running on the treadmill won't cut it so she put me on a series of weight sets as well. I didn't do the full set but my muscles had noticed the extra work this morning.

I went out to see the latest Simon Pegg comedy Hot Fuzz last night. I don't want to spoil it by giving away any plot stuff. However I will say it very funny and well worth watching.

After the film we popped into the newly re-furbished "Deansgate" pub for a few jars. Apparently they spent around 1/2 million pounds converting it from a working mans drinking den into a posher (but Cask Ale serving) pub. We suspect this is due to the brand new Hilton just down the road. It's certainly improved the place quite nicely and I'll add it to my list of nice pubs to drink in.
