Today's snippet..BHF survey

I know loads of us will have picked up on this worrying snippet today. Loads of links out there, but a British Heart Foundation Survey has indicated that, in Britain, one in five adults say that they could only run for 100 metres. They refer to the results as 'worrying data'.

I read this too.

Here's a link to the story for anyone else: bit.ly/1TvXRsI

It won't be far off but I know that if you'd have asked me if I could run 100m 5 weeks ago, I probably would have said no even though I would have been able to really - running for a minute gets you more than 100m... You don't know what you can really do unless you put your mind to it. Still worrying!
