Getting Back To The Gym

So…. A year ago I wrote a blog post about getting healthy. It was called “My 12 Week Fitness Challenge

The fact that it was actually written over 52 weeks ago should give you a bit of a clue as to how successful that entire endeavour was…

Eventually, sopping wet, I found a blue door which looked like it had take a beating. Illuminated by a single lamp above the frame, in the pitch darkness I could just about make out the logo of the people I needed to see.
