Circuit training on Thursday morning for the first time since the end of November meant I can barely walk or sit down in comfort but today I struggled up the side of Clyne hill. My legs ached but more than that I panted even more than usual.
I'm always aware that I seem to pant more heavily and loudly and sooner than most people do. I mentioned this to Husband who blamed my slow metabolism.
'It means it doesn't take much exercise for your lungs to go into over-drive,' he said, adding, 'you'll be like Auntie Joan and live to a grand old age with an alert mind.'
I smiled and preened myself.
'After all,' he continued, 'neither your body or brain have been used very much.'
