I haven’t blogged in too long! My job is a little crazy* right now and although I have a few ideas for a things I’d like to write about in (moderate) detail, I can’t quite work up the energy currently – too tired from doing stuff to write about it.
A quick update:
I started strength training in January, doing an introductory course and then moving on to a longer one, focussed on the areas where I need to improve. I’ve been attending group training once a week and (attempting) to go to my local globogym twice a week by myself. I could write a book on all the thoughts and feelings this is giving me – about women and exercise, men and exercise, how exercise is ‘sold’ to us (both men and women!), what being strong is and isn’t, my ability (and limits) regarding learning new skills. The short version is that I’m enjoying it, it’s hard as hell and the value of a great coach (to an amateur) is they have standards for you that you cannot imagine – and they can get you there.
