November 22nd, 2017

Episode 11 - Undoing all the good and then doing it up again. Pies and pints make you 'unstealthy'. Fact. A fact based on scientific evidence provided from the Tanita Fatboy Scales. So we're both back on it, albeit in varying speeds and intensity. A few reviews including The Brave Athlete: Calm the F*ck Down and Rise to the Occasion by Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson. Also a few events and a few sign ups for next year, including the small matter of the 2018 Celtman.... best get on it....
