Week beginning 24 April, May bank holidays and dancing Zumba with Giovanni


Thank you for bearing with me while I took time off from classes for some study and exams. I was studying Exercise for Long Term Neurological conditions such as Parkinsons, MS, Cerebral Palsy and MND. It was an intense week with 2 exams and 4 days on Zoom listening to lectures and a lot of course work to hand in left to do. It was exhausting! It made me feel great sympathy for my class members who have a desk based job.
