Currently reading the Book, "Built from broken". Which is essentially a training/rehab book, but it is written in a way that is far from dry. Chock full of rich anecdotes and humour, it is great reading for the aging individual (that would be all of us!) and how to sensibly train to achieve goals even when we feel like our bodies are falling apart. A lot of it, I know but some of the tip bits are great for my job and my desire to go back to the game I enjoy.
"When bad things happen, we can choose to let it define us, destroy us or strengthen us". Some philosopher? Nope, Doctor Seuss. Who knew a cartoon cat in a hat could be so wise. Be like Beckham, never ever give up. There is also come really good corrective information for each and everyone of us. Or you could be like Ross Edgley and run a marathon carrying a tree trunk; the mentalist.
Lightbringer. Book 6 of the Red Rising series was excellent and cleared up some problems with the previous book. If you haven't read any of them then I suggest you do so from the beginning.. "Red Rising". Each book gets better as you go along and when it comes to creative surprises Pierce Brown is the master of them.
Moby Dick was 500 pages long and took me approx 8 months to read because it was indeed my white Whale and I hated it. Lightbringer is almost 700 pages and i read it in just under three weeks whilst facilitating 220 workouts at work. So, clearly it was an ace book.
Having a back garden with comfy lawn furniture is my happy place. So I will forever be in debt from buying the house, fixing things that we should have to, and litigation as this cnut who sold us the house deserves everything that is coming to him,, yet it seems worth it.
