Witness the fitness



Just in front of the Saatchi Gallery there's a huge schools sports ground and when we were there a couple of classes were having their PE (physical education) lesson. This being Chelsea the kids were kitted out in their posh uniforms and all the girls in one class had to do their running in their mary janes! It brought back memories of my school days and how much I loved PE. Especially track & field (the 60m sprint and the long jump being my absolute faves)... Did you enjoy it and if so, which sport/s? 
Oh, and happy Friday chums!

  3. vicka fina bilder - vicka tråkiga skor att springa i!
    fast det hade varit rätt gott att ha uniform på gympan istället för att välja tiiishört varje gång. ;)

    i högstadiet gick jag i samma klass som 20 biffiga fotbollsungdomar och var rädd att bli trampad på. -hade jag haft gymnastik med samma inställning som NU hade jag lubbat och tagit i som f*n på idrotten iställe (kanske skulle sammankalla till en idrotts-re-union? "klädsel: cykelbrallor och mary janes!").

  4. I was lucky enough to be able to go sailing with my school - now that I LOVED. Football and cricket - meh. I was never good enough.

  6. jag tog varje chans jag kunde och skolkade från skolidrotten. det var iofs bara ett halvår sen jag gick i gymnasiet, så min inställning till idrotten är oförändrad. fina bilder som alltid - speciellt den högst upp!

  7. Skolidrott - ryyyys! Det var 14 år sen jag gick i skola med gympa, men jag minns det som igår, hur liten jag var. Speciellt när det var bollsport. Ångest!

  8. älskade gympan, speciellt i högstadiet då vi hade världens bästa lärare, i nian kom hon ihåg vad jag hade haft för problem med knäna i sjuan! härligt att känna sig tänkt på. i gymnasiet gick jag med massa människor som färgade håret svart och hatade allt vad sport hette. själv färgade jag också håret men älskade sport ändå! /
