Week 13 - the week where I stared into a monster's mouth

Week 13: Monday 5th April - Sunday 11th April 2021

A disgusting tooth

Wednesday's session is at 10am. I'm rushing around at 9am, after a slightly long lie-in, when I receive a WhatsApp message from my PT.

It's a picture.

A picture of the inside of his mouth! With a closeup of a red, swollen gum where he had his tooth removed a couple of days ago. It's like staring into a monster's mouth.

"Ewwwwwgh!!!" I exclaim.

"Sorry," said the monster. "I just don't want you to think I'm being a wimp."

He is cancelling today's session because his mouth is really swollen and painful from having his tooth removed. To be honest, I think I would have believed him - and not thought that he was a wimp - even without the need for photographic evidence.

The replacement session for Wednesday's cancelled one is on Saturday - and it turns out to be another boxing session. The boxing gloves don't seem quite so hilarious as they did last week. The novelty has slightly worn off. Although, I do still find myself having to conceal the occasional grin when I look down at my shiny, over-sized, big blue fists.

Thank you so much for reading this post!

I’ve been getting a bit obsessed with yoga recently. It all started in week 7 - the week where I failed to do press-ups. You may remember how I completed a full body stretch...
