I'm pleased to say I was successful and I shaved 40 seconds off my previous best. . I've worked pretty hard on my fitness to achieve this and it just goes to show that exercise does work. Yes it did hurt as I squeezed every once of effort out of my complaining body but I feel so much better afterwards in mind and body that its worth it.
I had just returned from my fit to breath exercise class where I had a nice surprise, an ICU nurse who had cared for me 3 years ago when my life was in the balance was there and she remembered me, probably because I was in ICU for 2 1/2 months and gave them some pretty serious problems to sort out. All the memories came flooding back as I remembered the names of quite a few of her colleagues and she talked about how my inner strength pulled me through what was a pretty dire situation. She said how pleased she was to see me looking so well, I told her that I call ICU the place of miracles as I know they certainly worked a miracle getting me back from a very very bad place.
Tony work hard at your exercise everyone because it really does help.
