It’s been a typical British summer, the town is full of holiday makers, the clouds are full of rain, and all the kids are getting ready to return to school….Holy carp…. Summers nearly over.
Did it leave me wounded?? Well only a little. The amount of “I’ve come on holiday and forgot my tablets” has been less than usual.
There has been a slight increase in the amount of injured parents and grandparents (mostly dad’s and grandad’s) who thought it was OK to try and do what the kids do:
“Well we were playing cricket and little Jimmy smacked the ball high, so I jumped for it and rolled – just like on the TV, now my leg hurts and my wrist is shaped like a fork, I forgot I was 87 and had two hip replacements”
I often joke that exercises isn’t necessarily good for you…which leads me to the report that states arm chair spectators of the Olympics have been trying to compete…apparently a company that repairs gadgets has received around 50 calls from people wanting to set up their rowing machines and exercise bikes so they can practice keeping up with the Olympians. My favourite quote in this article is from John Brewer of the Lucozade Sports Science Academy:
“There has to be a degree of realism and common sense”
