Is your training slipping? Is your slipping showing? Eight weeks of term have gone and some of you who religiously embarked on training programmes at the beginning of the term, will now, no doubt, be wondering what happened to your resolve. Well, take heart; it isn't unusual and we don't mind too much. In fact, it would help us a lot if you could come and tell us why your resolve slipped. We can then perhaps help you to re-start. Remember, with exams arriving mid-year, your physical well-being is important and as we have so often said: If you do just the physiological minimum of activity; three twenty-minute sessions per week, then you can only benefit.

Have you tried learning badminton? Some have and have progressed to the social badminton programme on Tuesdays 12 - 2pm. So, for beginners, and we have also spotted a few begin-againers, be in, on Tuesday 10 - 11 am and Friday 10 - 11 and 11 - 12.

News of the long room.....As you are probably aware, we have had big problems with the nets in the long room. Well, we are now close to a new tracking system, which is both, we hope, idiot-proof and student-proof (flattery will get you everywhere). However, please don't try to pull the nets back yet. In particular, people who are itching to use the new basketball backboards down there. You can use them as soon as the tracking system is working.

Beginners suqash lessons for this term will soon be coming to an end, so get your name down for Term II.

Monday 2-4pm (on the half hour)

Thursady 2-3pm (on the half hour)

Ask at the Recreation Centre Reception.

The Sauna - $1 per hour, p'hot, phew! Come and try it when you're feeling wound up or in need of a quick relaxation session.

And more relaxation: Yoga Tuesday 1-2 and Thursday 1-2.

Diet and Sport

Interestingly, there is no evidence to suggest that anything more than a normal diet, ie good food eaten in reasonable quantities, at mealtimes, is necessary for the hard-training sportsman/woman. In fact both research and our own experiences demonstrate that regular exercises will initially depress the appetite to a level where you eat what you need. Centre staff will advise you on diet and on Tuesday afternoon the Centre and the Health Service combine forces to help people with any kind of weight problems. (This does not include people having difficulty clean and jerking 100 kilos. But see Hugh Lawrence about that).

Answers to Quiz No 4

The free Sauna was not claimed or won. I'm afraid the perpetrator of the obscene answer sheet is not the kind of person we would like in the sauna!

The answers were:
(i)Manchester United of course is not a rugby team. Surprised?
(ii)We've forgotten too, but we think that it is the team calling itself Victoria's Champs
(iv)There were [unclear: no]1908 Vladivastok Olympics

Quiz No 5

Again, the free Sauna is offered to the first sheet of correct answers we get by Friday at Reception.

(i)How many Physical Welfare Officer are there?
(ii)What is a Physical Welfare Officer?
(iii)In basketball, does the term "stuffing" have anything to do with the half-time snack?
(iv)Who said that Transocean Balloning was like passing water with a full bladder?
