When climbing often I find that a tune enters my head. Ideally something with a repetitive beat that matches my cadence of about 90 revolutions per minute: White Stripes, Seven Nation Army or a stereotypical classic like Fatboy Slim’s Right Here, Right Now.
However every visit to the gym has been accompanied by Rihanna’s Diamonds and ATB’s 9PM ‘Till I Come. (The staff prayer room is on the same floor – those lyrics must be off putting…)
In an effort to remove them from my subconscious I searched the Old Skool section of my iPhone and I’ve agreed with Hux that our anthem for the trip will be The Theme from S Express. I just hope I’m not quietly gasping “I’ve got the hots for you” as Hux attempts mouth to mouth at the roadside. Awkward.
