“I’ve always been fit. I grew up playing every sport you can think of, my family went to a sports hotel when my brother and I were kids and we were sent off with friends to outdoor activity holidays when we were old enough to go alone.
Sports have been the basis for a lot of my social activities for all of my life. I was never ‘actually’ good (good enough to do professional sports), but that was never my goal. These days at 28 I play squash once a week (and football whenever I can fit in a game), and run once or twice to counteract the good food and drinks.
This year, I started out by overplaying squash and damaged my shoulder which meant that my squash partner and I stopped playing for about 6 weeks. Just as I got back to my first game, lockdown struck and we’ve not been able to play ever since. I’ve substituted this with running more but nothing beats the social side of sports! I can’t wait to get back.”
