      Well, not  general exercise – I started  back to fitness classes at the beginning of December last year. So far a bit of bike work [even then the bike does some of it for me] and standing frames.

      A relapse in February 2018 stopped me walking.

      Exercise diminished as I dealt with survival.

      My world was limited to a few yards from my bed for months.

      But there was one exercise that I never restarted – I just forgot about.

      It was to lie on my right side – pull both  my legs up and lift my left leg  whilst keeping my feet together. Think it’s called the clam.

      Now my right leg no longer bends without a lot of work and my right arm and shoulder ache. No wonder  I stopped.

      Three years ago in my walking era my left leg suddenly was agony. The pressure of dragging my increasingly sullen right leg around  had caused a set of muscles [think the abductor] to tear. It was so painful I was also in screaming tears!

      Eventually a physio worked it out – hence the exercise.

      This weekend it happened again – I nearly fell twice transferring.

      Uncomfortable though it was I’ve been doing that exercise day and night.

      This morning I managed 200 reps – when I started it was 20.

      I seem to be over the worse.

      Anything you’ve just stopped doing come back to haunt you?
