    Hello!

    I thought it would be good if, whenever any of us put in some physical effort we feel proud of - whether it's down the gym, up a mountain, or just doing a load of housework! - we should shout about it.

    It doesn't matter how big or small the achievement is, or if anyone can do it faster/longer/better. If YOU'RE proud of it, and you've tried your hardest, that's what counts! :D

    Exercise is hard enough as it is. Let's give ourselves a pat on the back!

    I'll kick it off: Today I managed to run 5K on the treadmill in 27 minutes! I enjoy running, even though I'm far from the fastest. I hope to get it down to 26 minutes so then I can comfortably do it in my lunch hour!

    I've been using a treadmill for years, but it did take me a while to get used to it when I first started. Even now I don't think I could look at the ceiling without falling off! Start with taking your hands off, keeping your eyes loosely at your feet, then slowly try to ease your gaze up while slowly increasing the speed. Takes a few sessions!

    That's brilliant! Can you use either hand to lift the fork?
