“THINGS CANCER MADE ME SAY” – The Sun’s Deborah James takes over Pineapple

Well that was fun and totally exhausting! I’ve always wanted to go to @pineappledancestudios and today I finally got to join in a class! Thanks to the pineapple crew for hosting me and ensuring I at least looked the part – which hopefully made up for my chemo brain struggling to keep up with the routine! (And the fact that the dance moves were HARD!) I have a new found appreciation for just how bloody fit you need to be as a dancer – and I think I sweated enough for 5 days worth of #stepupfor30! But it was worth it! : Right rest before tomorrow’s challenge! I’m knackered already and we are only day 4! My body is not what it used to be and everything hurts! Right – plough on Deborah, plough on!! You’ve got this! : @bowelcanceruk #cancercommunity #cancerrecovery #dancing #pineappledancestudios #dancewear #pineappledance #fitness #getfit #backtofitness #exercise
