Dont Say Can’t

The last few days have been a bit hectic, what with the kids being off and life being busy. So this morning on my early morning walk I felt a little groggy.

Within half an hour though the early morning cool air pulled me around to looking forward to a good session and a great day ahead.

I must say there is a definite difference in the early light; also the air smells cleaner, cooler now in a morning. The mornings are definitely drawing in a little already. I love the early walks and I am looking forward to autumn my favorite time of year.



The walks as I have said many times aid recovery for this old weights warrior. Staying still does us- you/me no good, sitting all day and driving everywhere is no good at all for your body.

So I say, walk as much as you can.

It aids recovery from training and life stress. Plus it makes you leaner and more fluid, simple -all because of stepping out.

Let’s put this into a little thought for the day.

In order to gain you need to train hard. In order to gain from that training you have to recover.

You have to work at recovery just like training.

Eat good, sleep deep, keep calm, also stretch and walk to cleanse your system.

Don’t say you can’t recover from hard workouts if your diets shit and you don’t implement simple stuff as above.

It’s down to YOU in the end do what you need to do.
