As a person whose business (as well as physical training and performance) is words (three quarters of a million of them so far!), I quite enjoy cryptic crosswords, usually finding time to do one of the easier ones in on-line newspapers like The Times of London.
I’ve noticed that quite often, there are fitness related clues and I thought it would be fun to set a few challenges here for readers. So, if I try an easy one:
What this author wants from his weights programme (4)
…and you came up with the answer TONE – you’d be on the right track!
So, over the next few weeks, I shall drop an occasional clue into the posts which is somehow related to fitness. Collect ten right answers and send them to me (by comment or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org ) and I’ll send the first person a signed copy of Loving the Boy – or one of the other books if preferred – anywhere in the world.
For the ‘new readers start here’ department, there are three books on the themes of finding gay love, a love of acrobatics and performance, and some misadventures… these are the other two, and you can click on covers or the first link for more information!
OK. FITNESS CLUEDO NO. 1:
By putting the effort into his gym workout, Peter becomes a specialist! (6)
If you can solve that one, keep your answer until you have the full set and then send them to me…
Meanwhile, some more fitness inspiration for you. I aim to get every reader, any age, into the gym!
Be proud of what you have, and then resolve to make it better!
