If you’ve never heard of Crossfit or have heard of it but wondered what it looks like, here’s a cool segment from last night’s city news, featuring my godson Gerry and his daughter Lara. The whole family is hugely into Crossfit and I must say it shows; they’re all very fit and buff.

I tried it for a couple of weeks at that same gym and really enjoyed it; very intense but short, you can be in and out in 45 minutes. Then we went on our mountain biking trip and I injured both knees; had my MRI on Monday and it looks like I’ve torn the menisci on both knees. And to paraphrase the film Casablanca  “And now they sit and wait, and wait….for the orthopaedic surgeon to call back”.
