I can’t just let that dirty post sit on top of my blog for more than 24 hours, can I?
Sorry for the people who were eating while reading that icky yucky post. As much as I want to delete it, I won’t because that is part of our Dubai life documentation of sorts.
Thanks for the advices on my Arabic class – gym dilemma. I signed up for the class but was refused admission. Due to the popularity of the course, it was on first come, first served basis and I only sent my name in after I wrote the blog post. In short, I was too late and will join next time. So that means, for now, it is the gym for me.
Speaking of which, there was an accident at the gym last night! A female gym member fell on her head while doing back crunches on a Roman chair back hyperextension, like this:
This is so hard to explain but: The lever on her feet suddenly propped up while she was facing down and trying to raise her upper body. Since there was nothing to support her weight, she fell on the floor head first.
Paramedics came and caused a commotion. Hotel guests(the gym is inside a hotel) thought someone drowned in the pool. The injured member was taken to the hospital because almost immediately after complaining of pain, she threw up – not a good signal for head injuries.
It looked like she didn’t check the lever lock used to adjust the height of the machine. The instructor and the doctor said the machine is perfectly safe is you only check everything before using. In any way, I am not going to touch that thing and will stick to the treadmill and free weights for now.
