Well, that felt like a big step: I've just booked a gym session for tomorrow (used to go three times a week pre-pandemic)

Looking forward to being able to do pull-ups again! 😅

That felt incredible. I can only lift about three-quarters of what I could this time last year (home weights aren't the same!) but the gym has got all new equipment and it was a great experience 💪

@dajbelshaw Nobody should look forward to doing pull-ups 😁

@gray There's something strangely satisfying about them, don' t you think? I've found a local tree, but it's not quite the same...

@gray Ah, well, each to their own - when I read your blog I shake my head in disbelief at how far your run 😅

@dajbelshaw Very much so! It's interesting how each person views different forms of exercise 😁

@dajbelshaw I tried to make a pull up bar in the first lock down with a branch and rope in the garage. It was very sad

@dajbelshaw it is amazing how 'new' and genuinely appreciated the little things can be. So glad you got to go, and 3/4 of what you could lift before sounds not too bad!!

@lauraritchie Thank you! Yes, a walk on the beach yesterday with my parents and going to the gym today would have felt quite mundane in early 2020. Not any more!
