Why suffer just to stay healthy?

One burst of fine weather and everyone is out and about!

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.

A close friend recently challenged me to start training for the next Iron Man competition, which as many of you probably know takes part in West Wales later on this 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 over a year now, but apparently you actually have to turn up for it to have any effect. Who knew?
