What are the chances of being able to book 2 Gold Class seats together for a Friday night – the night before?! Usually very slim! We were lucky on this occasion and this meant two date nights in one week! With a schedule like mine, watching a movie after 8pm usually ends in me drooling in a deep sleep. This is no reflection on the movie – ever – just the result of working shift work and being a morning person.
Anyway, if you are going to do the whole gold class thing, I think you may as well enjoy the dining experience (despite it being a total rip off!). Plus I wasn’t willing to put a strike up on the board so we headed to the gym beforehand for a quick strength sesh to justify whatever it was we would be consuming!
We didn’t have much time at the gym so we structured our session in a superset-like fashion. We paired up dumbbell bench press (where I managed to lift 15kg DB’s YEOW!) with chest flys (or for me skull-crushers), lat pulldowns with seated rows. We finished with bicep 21’s just to top it off – always a good burn!
