Don’t Fear the Squat Rack

Today H and I had a gym date- the first one in a long time due to conflicting work schedules. We squeezed in a session this morning, before we were off doing our own things again.

It’s nice and encouraging to see a fair few gym rats/mutts/mice bright and early on a Saturday morning. It almost feels like a silent brotherhood/ sisterhood! Why silent? Well, for starters, no one talks to each other, which is perfectly fine with me, but we give each other the nod of acknowledgement or a brief smile.

I count myself lucky, because I’ve got your guys as well! When you comment, like or follow, I get a sense of affirmation from knowing you, yes YOU, enjoy what I write. So keep ’em coming, I also appreciate a share or two!
