Over the past few days. I have witnessed more cyclists and joggers on the roads than at any other time I can remember.
Sweating, red faced and panting heavily whilst maintaining that focused and determined look through gritted teeth is not something that I personally feel the need to participate in, but hats off to those of you that do. Well done and keep it up, if it makes you feel good.
A close friend recently challenged me to start training for the London marathon next year. I’ve now come to the conclusion that I don’t need friends like this. My exercise regime is far less strenuous and more of a leisurely pace these days, weather permitting of course.
Let’s face it, there’s no point suffering to stay healthy is there?
I’ve been a member of a gym for more than a year now, but apparently you actually have to turn up for it to have any effect. Who knew?
I do have a favourite machine in the gym though, known as the vending machine.
On a serious note though, I really must make more of an effort to look after myself and stay in shape. At this point in time, I’m a bad example.
