Sometimes you need to ask for what you don't want.

A strange thing happened the other day.

I was at the gym with my personal trainer and he set me a really horrible exercise.

The exercise itself doesn't matter, the point is it left me absolutely knackered. Muscles hurting, chest pounding, lungs bursting.

“How was that?” he asked.

“Bloody horrible.” I said. “I'm in pain and I'm struggling for breath.

Let's make sure we do that again next week”.

Woah ! What did I just say?  Do more of it?

Surely less is the way forward?
