Things they don’t tell you when you sign up to the gym: You can’t quit. Not even for a little while. Between illness and holiday, it’s been about three weeks since I last went to the gym. When I went tonight, I was expecting to be a bit behind where I was three weeks ago.
This is not “a bit behind”. Before I went on holiday, I was doing 4 miles in 25 minutes. Tonight, I barely managed 2 and a half in fifteen before needing to stop. Likewise, I was about five kilos down on all my weights. It’s going to be a month or so, just to get back to where I was, dammit.
