Today I did something stupid.

Oh, yes I did.

Crazy. Downright daft. I'm sure I wasn't in my right mind at the time.

You see, many many years ago (almost 7 yrs I think), when I was fit, and much much younger, I not only rock climbed every week, I was also doing martial arts training twice a week.

I was super fit and loved it.

And I want that feeling back again. To live in a body working at peak performance, to feel strong and healthy. Oh, how I want that back.

And that's how I arrived at my stupid decision.

I signed up for martial arts training again.

I think I may regret this.

You see I overlooked three little things :

1. I'm not as young as I was then.

2. I've had a third baby since then.

3. I'm terribly unfit.

But the lure of being fit and strong again was just too much.

I'll let you know how it went as soon as the first class is over.

Provided my arm muscles co-operate and allow me to drive home. And then let me use my fingers to type.

Sorry, on second thought you may have to wait a day or two after the event for that update.


  1. Sounds like fun! I am sure that once you are over the initial *pain* you will love it again!

  2. Hope the class went well. I wish I had a history of fitness and strength to draw on, to try and lure me back in to shape. Perhaps motivating stories and photos from you will be the kick I need to at least try! Have fun
