Tonight I’m hurting. I’ve come home from a legs class at the gym and I can barely move! This is pain of the best kind though.
Three years ago I was 40kg heavier, my husband was undergoing chemotherapy, my youngest son was hospitalised for seizures and we had very little help as mother in law had early onset dementia and they were trying to cover her symptoms.
Three years on and I’m fighting fit, my husband has beaten cancer and is building his strength at the gym, my son seems to be outgrowing his problems and mother in law is safe in a nursing home.
Life can be tough with three children and my husband having a job that involves a lot of travel. But it has nothing on the dark days we went through and I now feel fit and strong and capable. So when the trainer throws a couple of hundred jump squats, a few kms running and some heavy leg weights at me I lap it up because it feels great to be able to burn like that!
