Great! I had an offer from a personal fitness trainer to help me get over my broken foot and fitter than I ever was before! Unfortunately Todd (www.thefitnesselement.com.au) is on the wrong side of the planet from me. For those that don't read all of this blog on their visit (which is all of you) I ought to explain that Todd is my brother in law. Aussie born and bred, it's no surprise when he and my sister married they decided to live on the Sunshine coast rather than "rainy but mild Boughton under Blean". Todd is a fitness trainer and has told me just 5 minutes a day in the sun will help my body process vitamin D. Vitamin D helps the body carry calcium around the body which in turn will help my foot heal and prevent osteoo..... something or other. Yeah, I'll leave the technical bits to the expert and stick with elevating my foot in front of the double glazing.
Unfortunately he's only a personal fitness trainer. While my sister views him like a god (and I have to admit his body is far better toned than mine), the weather systems don't view him as a god so he can't help the rays of sunshine get through the UK's overcast cloudy days.
I have a feeling there will be a training plan in my email box as soon as this plaster cast comes off.... I wonder if will include any running? ;-)
