Project Unstoppable Day 4 -7: Weekend walking and weekday workouts

I said I’d have to combine days on occasion and it was always likely to be the weekends (ok and Mondays and Tuesdays too) 🙂 Not to worry though, I got my exercise in and that is the main thing.

What next?

Well, after the excitement of the West Sussex Strongest, which was a month ago I had to decide what I want to do next. Yes it was a month ago, it took me that long to write it up because I seem to have developed a much busier life at the moment complete with a…… Continue reading What next?
