We are so tired today that I cannot imagine what we did to achieve this fatigue. Ferry fatigue? Gardening repair exhaustion?

Off the ferry from our lovely family time on Cortes, I headed straight to my gymnastics class powered by a flask of Bewleys tea (Go raibh mile Ita). One of the fellas told me he thinks I’ll be able to do the pull up on the rings within two weeks. I think that is an extremely generous assessment, but another guy taught me some of the basic circles and swings to build shoulder strength. Unfortunately he decided to demonstrate this while I was stood on a box right beside him swinging and turning and he crashed into me several times and my toe still has muscle memory from the impact.

Rings are, 72 hours after the fact, very hard on the armpits. You feel the simple act of walking in the armpit region!
