Fucus week diary.

Extracts from this document...


Dear Diary, Today wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, there are lots of year10's here too, thank god... I would definitely hate it if there was no one I knew here with me. The hardest part was getting up at 6:30 in the morning; I hate mornings. I was hoping that this week would be like a holiday, waking up late, getting to do stuff in the afternoons, no homework... well so much for no homework, I have to write this English diary. Asha and I (my perfect grammar!) took the no. 40 bus to Times Square, we were early getting there, but we had to wait for Kate and ended up being late anyways. First thing after our lecture from Ms Wathall about how being on time is very important, we had an introduction talk from this California fitness guy (I forgot his name already, opps), basically all we were told was to be sensible on the equipment, and to 'be safe you must be smart'. Such a clich´┐Ż, everything we do now days commences with a lecture about safety. I don't know why they bother; all it does is to give people ideas about ways to get into trouble... Well we were put into four groups; mine is called 'Female Pride'. ...read more.


He made our whole group (40 people) hold a rope taught in a big circle while Marco walks along it. And yes the rope was in the air. It's a lot easier than it seems, but sometimes he paused too long, and so the people holding the rope in that area were nearly collapsing. Another 'challenge' we had was for the entire group to stand in a circle so our heels were touching, then we had to sit down! So the person in front of you was sitting on you and you were sitting on the person behind's knee. If you did it properly it was meant to work, and the weight would be shared throughout the circle, but since we didn't do it properly we just all ended up falling on top of each other. Last of all we had body pump. It's sort of a mix between aerobics and weight lifting. Ms Wathall was our instructor. To be honest I wasn't really trying that hard when we were doing it, I was too busy laughing at how stupid we all looked. Only about 10 out of the 40 people could do it properly, everyone had such concentrated looks on their faces it was funny, especially since most of them were getting it wrong. ...read more.


I don't think so though. After that we had hip-hop. It's a lot of fun, even though I look stupid like I always do when I dance. The guy who was teaching us was really good though, and so was the dance he taught us. After lunch we had to give our presentations, and like I though we would my group stuffed up, even though we did actually end up planning part of it. We started by doing one of the teamwork activities we had learned in the fitness challenges, and then we went into a dance. Since I was on the back row I just copied the people in front of me, and as I found out later so was everyone else around me. The only little problem was that the people in the front row couldn't remember half the dance... you can guess what we looked like. Anyways, there were two guys, one on each side of the stage, and they were going to do a whole lot of body combat and body pump, they had this whole routine organised. Everyone who was doing the dance started running off the stage cause we all felt so stupid, and the guys had no clue what was going on, the had only been doing their routine for about 20seconds. Well it was funny when it happened. Well that was my week of focus week, in general it was quite fun, but I doubt I'm any fitter! Sarah ...read more.
