On Yer Bike

Like I mentioned yesterday, one of the problems with The Foxes appears to be their fitness. According to the various commentators that is, including fans and indeed the new manager himself.

Of course being a girl I immediately get confused by that term. It probably seems common sense that they mean physical fitness. As in stamina and flexibility and muscle tone. But to a girl that likes to giggle I can't help thinking about whether this could all be down to the way they look.

So I've done a bit of research on our behalf. Looked at each of their photographs. I have to say I don't know how proper it is for a 40 something girl to be looking at boys as young of her son in this way. I did of course attempt to keep some professional distance.

Anyway, what I have concluded it that stamina and flexibility and muscle tone are an important part of either type of fitness. So that's what they need to focus on.

Now you may be sitting there thinking " It's alright for her. She is at a nice safe distance. Easy for her to say they should be training harder" (OK I know the chances of you actually thinking that are probably quite slim but it is a literary device to lead me into my next point!). So I have decided to lead from the front and set an example. To that end I have got my almost unused 5 year old push bike out, in a distinctive shade of purple, complete with purple helmet (that's enough of that!). I have been on a training ride.

So boys, I've set the example. Off you go!
