What Went On in February 2016

February is normally the month when everyone is well and truly over winter and starting to succumb to winter depression. Not so much this year, thanks to the crazy-warm winter we’re having.

A Fitness Fairytale – Cinderella Revisited

Once upon a time, there was a fit young woman named Cinderella. Her father was a widower, who had remarried to a woman who was terribly jealous of Cinderella’s low resting heart rate, fast-twitch muscle fibers and optimal body fat percentage.
