FIRST ONE BACK
Last Thursday saw the welcome return to the Astro for 30 lucky YOGITs after another lockdown. It was great to see all the old faces, catch up with news and banter and throw a rugby ball around. The anticipation of the first pass, dummy, jink and stretching out the ageing limbs -leading to the first try and many more over the evening. There is always the fear in middle age of the ‘sniper’ targeting hamstrings and calves and thankfully we came out with relatively unharmed – although there will be some aching limbs in the morning no doubt!
It has been a tough year and many families have lost loved ones early due to COVID and are heartfelt sympathies go out to everyone impacted. We also need to be mindful though of the collateral damage that COVID will play on many parts of our society, including our physical and mental health. Weekly regular exercise is crucial to start to fight back and get fitter in the new normal – whatever that is and we very much hope that this will be the last lockdown – due to the excellent vaccination programme and everyone working together.
Looking forward to next Thursday already!FIRST
